We reported way back in November 2008 that The Weinstein Company was reuniting the classic comedy team of Cheech and Chong for a brand new concert film and now moviegoers can experience the film this April. The Weinstein Company announced today that Cheech and Chong's Hey Watch This will be released in theaters nationwide, fittingly on April 20.
The film will also be released on that same date on DVD, Blu-ray, video-on-demand (VOD) and digital download as well. Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong both star in the concert film, along with Shelby Chong. Both Cheech and Chong wrote the film and Christian Charles directed. Below you can find the synopsis for the film and the first one-sheet poster as well.
Cheech and Chong's Hey Watch This is is a feature film showcasing the duo's hugely successful reunion tour, Cheech & Chong: Light Up America, where they performed together for the first time in over 25 years. The pop culture duo performed for more than 100 audiences, grossing eight figures, making them one of the most successful tours of 2008-2009. The side-splitting film captures the essence of their live performances which have made them the fan-favorite, high-times comedians they are today.
Cheech and Chong's Hey Watch This will be the maiden voyage for a trendsetting new release model, making the content available Day in Date on every platform including a limited theatrical run, DVD/Blu-Ray availability online and at local retail outlets, Video On Demand service, and even the ability to stream it through your PS3 and Xbox360 Networks all on April 20th.
