If you love a good murder mystery, Agatha Christie is the master of the genre, and it’s been a long time since we’ve seen one of her stories on the big screen. Director and actor Kenneth Branagh delivers some much-needed mystery with Murder on the Orient Express, while taking on the all important role of Hercule Poirot, and it’s easy to love what he accomplished, even if the film is far from perfect because it is ultimately, at the very least, a fun ride.
Arriving this week on Blu-ray and on DVD: James McAvoy is the young and dashing Charles Xavier trying to save the world from evil mutants in X-Men First Class; Saoirse Ronan stars as a 16-year-old reclusive killer in Hanna; and a look at Brian DePalma’s notorious Scarface on Blu-ray.
In partnership with Universal Studios Home Entertainment, The GATE is pleased to offer fans a chance to win one of five Blu-ray copies of acclaimed director Brian De Palma’s influential gangster epic, Scarface, starring Al Pacino and Michelle Pfeiffer.
