The comedy starring Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish will hit both formats in January.
Universal says Night School will be available on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and Blu-ray on January 1.
Successful salesman Teddy Walker’s (Kevin Hart, Jumanji, Ride Along 1 & 2) life turns around after getting fired for accidentally destroying his workplace. Forced to attend night school so he can finally get his GED and find another job, Teddy soon finds himself amongst a group of misfit students, a teacher with no patience for grown up class clowns named Carrie (Tiffany Haddish, Girls Trip, Uncle Drew) and his high school nemesis-turned-principal Stewart (Taran Killam, Killing Gunther, Ted 2) who will strive to make sure he fails the course. With every rule in the book about to be broken, Teddy and his new friends find themselves in a battle of pranks and wit that you can’t simply learn in the classroom.
Director Malcolm D. Lee (Girls Trip, Best Man franchise) brings an extravagant comedic treat with an all-star cast including Hart, Haddish, Killam, Rob Riggle (The Hangover, 21 Jump Street) and Romany Malco (The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Think Like a Man series). Producers Hart and Will Packer (Ride Along franchise) bring their signature humor style to Night School, making for a wildly funny and over-the-top amusement that you cannot miss!
