Own it Early on Digital on October 22
Blu-ray and DVD debut on November 5
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Bluray Combo I reviewed in this Post. The opinions I share are our own.
Between 8th Ave. and the Hudson River, the Irish mafia runs 20 blocks of a tough New York City neighborhood known as Hell’s Kitchen. But for mob wives Kathy (Melissa McCarthy), Ruby (Tiffany Haddish) and Claire (Elizabeth Moss), things are about to take a dramatic and radical turn. When the FBI sends their husbands to prison, the three women take business into their own hands by running the rackets and taking out the competition.
In a time where Hollywood is churning out rehash or reboots of classics, it’s nice to see something different. The Kitchen is based on the comic book series created for DC Vertigo by Ollie Masters and Ming Doyle. For those that might not be huge comic book fans, no need to worry. The Kitchen isn’t featuring superheros wearing capes, aliens invading earth for domination or silly one liners. This is a gritty film based on a gritty comic series but some extremely talented actors. This is a film that will pull you in from the beginning and will be entertaining from start to finish. Having not been familiar with the source material, I never felt lost and enjoyed it. This is a film that we would highly recommend. The Kitchen is available now on digital and will be available on bluray on Tuesday, November 5th. This is worth your time to check out.
Burbank, CA, October 1 – They’re taking control of Hell’s Kitchen when “The Kitchen” arrives on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital. From New Line Cinema and BRON Creative come the gritty, female-driven mob drama “The Kitchen,” written and directed by Andrea Berloff, who was nominated for an Oscar for Original Screenplay for “Straight Outta Compton.” Based on the Vertigo comic book series from DC Entertainment, the film stars Oscar nominee Melissa McCarthy (“Bridesmaids,” “Tammy”), Tiffany Haddish (“Girls Trip,” “Night School”) and Elisabeth Moss (TV’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” TV’s “Mad Men”) as three 1978 Hell’s Kitchen housewives whose mobster husbands are sent to prison by the FBI.
