Former college wrestler Scott Voss (Kevin James) is a 42-year-old biology teacher in a failing high school. When cutbacks threaten to cancel the music program and lay off its teacher (Henry Winkler), Scott begins to raise money by moonlighting as a mixed martial arts fighter. Everyone thinks Scott is crazy most of all the school nurse, Bella (Salma Hayek). But in his quest, as Scott becomes more and more committed to fighting for the students, he becomes a sensation that rallies the entire school.
Kevin James (Zookeeper), Salma Hayek (Grown Ups) and Henry Winkler team up in the inspirational family comedy HERE COMES THE BOOM, coming to Blu-ray and DVD with UltraViolet February 5th from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The movie delivers big laughs as Kevin James creates the character of Scott Voss, a high school biology teacher who gets into the Octagon as a mixed martial arts fighter to raise money when his schools music program is threatened. James says, Here Comes the Boom is a hero story of a guy at a failing school who has lost his inspiration, and through this journey becomes inspired as a teacher. Through him, other people become inspired, especially at the school. Hes an everyman who gets the rare opportunity to step it up.
