“The Happytime Murders” with Melissa McCarthy comes to Blu-ray in November

It seems that the 2018 Brian Henson directed film The Happytime Murders is already slated for a Blu-ray Disc release on November 20th via Universal, according to an early alert to retailers. Tech specs and bonus materials for the release have not yet been detailed but stay tuned for updates, especially once the studio officially announces it and such. The release seems will be a “combo pack” with a DVD and Digital Copy of the film included. The Blu-ray is available for PRE-ORDER over at Amazon and Best Buy.

EDITORIAL NOTE: File this as a RUMOR, and specifically one under: “Wow that was quick!” It seems that perhaps the bad reviews from critics may be why this film, just released in late, late August (a week ago), is already slated for a home video release. If you don’t believe me, take a look at its current score over at Rotten Tomatoes and read a review snippet or two. It doesn’t seem to have been too well received by the critics, nor even totally audiences as its rating on Rotten Tomatoes (for audiences) and over at IMDb prove. This quick of a theatrical to home video turnaround is pretty rare. While this may be a rumor, I think the retailer indicating the release date is a dependable source and is very likely correct. Again, stay tuned for updates regarding this release.
