The star-studded comedy is planned for Blu-ray in March.
In an early announcement to retailers, Paramount is set to release 'Top Five' on Blu-ray on March 17.
Pulsing with the rhythm of his greatest stand-up, Chris Rock's Top Five takes things to the next level, reveling in the high and the low, and blending a star-studded comedic romp with an irresistible romance.
Top Five digs under the surface of show business, politics, rap, and the exigencies of being black and famous today—holding it all up to the light in the way only Chris Rock can. Mingling echoes of Woody Allen and Dick Gregory with the energy of Kanye West and Jay Z, TOP FIVE is an original and radically new kind of American movie.
Written, directed, and starring Chris Rock, Top Five tells the story of New York City comedian-turned-film star Andre Allen, whose unexpected encounter with a journalist (Rosario Dawson) forces him to confront the comedy career—and the past—that he's left behind. Starring Chris Rock, Rosario Dawson, Gabrielle Union, Cedric The Entertainer, JB Smoove, Tracy Morgan, Kevin Hart, Anders Holm, Jay Pharaoh, Michael Che, Sherri Shepherd, Leslie Jones. The film is produced by Scott Rudin and Eli Bush. The Co-Producers are Shawn "Jay Z" Carter and Kanye West; the Executive Music Producer is Questlove.
Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements will include: Feature Audio Commentary By Actor/Director Chris Rock; Never Just A Movie: Chris Rock and Top Five; The Making of Top Five; Andre Allen Standup Outtakes; Top Five moments you didn't see in theaters; and Deleted Scenes.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.99.
