Nobby has everything a man from the poor fishing town of Grimsby could want, including nine children and the most attractive girlfriend in Northern England (Rebel Wilson, Pitch Perfect). There’s only one thing missing: his little brother, Sebastian (Mark Strong, Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy), who Nobby has spent 28 years searching for after they were separated as kids. Nobby sets off to reunite with Sebastian, unaware that not only is his brother MI6’s deadliest assassin, but he’s just uncovered plans for an imminent global terrorist attack. On the run and wrongfully accused, Sebastian realizes that if he is going to save the world, he will need the help of its biggest idiot.

The R-rated comedy was panned by  critics and tanked with audiences, grossing a meager 6.7 million at the domestic box office this past March. Still, Cohen is not without his fans—the ones that worshipped Borat—and Grimsby will probably see some significant action in the home market.

The Blu-ray, DVD and digital formats are loaded with bonus content, including “The Making of The Brothers Grimsby, “Line-O-Rama: Hilarious Outtakes,” which showcases the comic improvisation skills of the cast. The Blu-ray and digital formats also include deleted and extended scenes, a blooper reel, and the featurette “The Elephant in the Room.”
