Posted Thu Feb 20, 2014 at 12:00 PM PST by

Tim Story's buddy cop comedy will arrest Blu-ray in April. Pre-orders are available now!

In an early announcement to retailers, Universal is preparing to release 'Ride Along' on Blu-ray on April 15th.

For the past two years, high school security guard Ben (Kevin Hart) has been trying to show decorated detective James (Ice Cube) that he's more than just a video game junkie who's unworthy of James' sister. When Ben finally gets accepted into the police academy, James invites him on a ride-along designed to scare the hell out of him and ultimately demonstrate if Ben has what it takes to take care of his sister. But when the wild night leads them to the most notorious criminal in the city, James will find that his new partner's rapid-fire mouth is just as dangerous as the bullets speeding at it. Also starring John Leguizamo and Laurence Fishburne, 'Ride Along' is an action-packed comedy with big thrills and even bigger laughs.

The Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack will feature 1080p video, a lossless 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Gag Reel; It Was A Good Day: On The Set Of Ride Along; Atlanta – The Character; and Feature Commentary With Director Tim Story.

Blu-ray exclusives include: Alternate Ending; Deleted Scenes & Alternate Take; Kev & Cube's Wild Ride: Audiences will experience Kevin Hart and Ice Cube's electrifying chemistry in a short feature that shows first hand how these two megastars fed each other creatively, how Hart's energy fueled the process, and what he learned about dedication and focus by working with Ice Cube; An Explosive Ride: Ever wonder what it would be like to be beaten up by Laurence Fishburne? This trip behind the scenes will expose the hilarious exchanges between the stars and their stunt doubles; You Gonna Learn Today: An inside look at the film's many hilarious off-script moments including b-roll, dailies and alternate takes that showcase the stars' incredible comic gifts; and Anatomy of the Big Blast: Watch as the cast and crew prep for the movie's most explosive sequence!
