An extended family reunites for the holidays and must survive their time at home in the hilarious Almost Christmas, arriving on Digital HD January 24, 2017 and on Blu-ray , DVD and On Demand on February 7, 2017 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. A new comedy from writer/director David E. Talbert (Baggage Claim) and producer Will Packer (Ride Along, Think Like a Man series), Almost Christmas tells the festive story of a beloved patriarch (Danny Glover, Lethal Weapon Series, Shooter) who asks his family for one gift this holiday season: to get along. If they can honor that wish and spend five days under the same roof without killing one another, it will be a Christmas miracle!  With exclusive bonus content including a gag reel, Monique’s “Aunt May” unplugged, a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film, and more, Almost Christmas serves year-round laughs for all.

Usher (When the Game Stands Tall, Independence Day: Resurgence) and Omar Epps (“Shooter,” “House”). Hailed as “hilarious and heartwarming” (Ebony), Almost Christmas brings home the joy of family.
