Christopher Nolan has built the Batman franchise on one concept that few other superhero films have embraced, and it has made the difference between the relatively airy heroes found in other blockbusters this year, and Nolan's grim Dark Knight.
The latest films arriving on DVD and Blu-ray today include: I Am Number Four, starring Alex Pettyfer as a super-powered teenage alien on the run from galactic enemies; and the animated comedy, Gnomeo & Juliet, featuring the voices of James McAvoy, Emily Blunt, and Michael Caine.
Opening this weekend in theatres across the country: Channing Tatum and Jamie Bell star in the epic adventure, The Eagle; Adam Sandler tries to woo a younger woman in the comedy, Just Go With It; William Shakespeare's classic tragedy gets a comic take in the animated Gnomeo And Juliet; plus a look at the music documentary, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never.
Coming out this week on Blu-ray and DVD: Leonardo DiCaprio stars in Christopher Nolan's mind-bending action-thriller Inception; and a look at Shrek's final chapter, Shrek Forever After.
New this week at a theatre near you: Leonardo DiCaprio walks the dreamscape in Christopher Nolan's daring thriller, Inception; and Jay Baruchel plays the wizard in training for Jon Turteltaub's live-action adaptation of The Sorcerer's Apprentice.
This wait is over. Just in time for your holiday shopping lists, Star Trek, the best action movie of the year, arrives on Blu-ray and DVD this week, with Chris Pine starring as Mr. James T. Kirk. Also out, Cameron Diaz stars in My Sister's Keeper, Bruno has Sacha Baron Cohen pulling his usual shtick, and the great Michael Caine stars in Is Anybody There?
