Baby Boy

Already announced as being released on the 6th of November, Columbia have now announced the specifications of Baby Boy. The disc will feature an anamorphic 1.85:1 widescreen transfer, English Dolby Digital 5.1 and 2.0 surround tracks, English and French subtitles, an audio commentary by John Singleton, a making-of featurette, deleted and alternate scenes, storyboard-to-screen comparisons, an outtake and blooper reel, a music video, filmographies and trailers. The disc will retail at $27.95.

Directed by John Singleton (Boyz N the Hood) and starring Tyrese Gibson, Taraji P. Henson , Omar Gooding, Tamara LaSeon Bass, Candy Ann Brown, Adrienne-Joi Johnson and Ving Rhames (Out of Sight), Baby Boy is set in the same African-American community as Boyz N the Hood, South Central in LA. This time Singleton presents the story of an unemployed twenty-year old man named Jody (Gibson), who still lives at home with his mother (Johnson) despite having children by two different women. Jody finds his life comfortable - he is unemployed, preferring instead to borrow money from others, and is in a relationship with the mother of one of his children, Yvette (Henson), whilst freely having affairs with other women - until his best friend (Gooding) starts to get involved with gangs, Yvette's old boyfriend re-emerges from prison and his mother gets a new boyfriend (Rhames). Will Jody finally stand on his own two feet and make responsible decisions about his life?

Baby Boy has a tentative UK cinema release date of the 23rd of November, two-and-a-half weeks after the R1 DVD is released.
