Intense and emotionally jarring, the Canadian thriller 22 Chaser mines an unlikely premise for maximum impact.

The Wachowskis are bringing their unique style to Netflix this June with the launch of their series Sense8, starring Brian J. Smith, Tuppence Middleton, Jamie Clayton, Miguel Angel Silvestre, and featuring Daryl Hannah and Naveen Andrews.
Debuting on DVD and Blu-ray this week: the Coen brothers’ True Grit, with Jeff Bridges and Hailee Steinfeld; the silly romantic comedy Just Go With It, starring Adam Sandler; the thriller Sanctum, by director Alister Grierson; plus a look at Blue Crush 2 and the final season of Stargate Universe.
Last week’s Stargate Universe episode, “Space,” marked the beginning of the second half of season one, and also set the stage for a very different chain of events.
Last October, Space debuted the latest series in the Stargate franchise, Stargate Universe, a new sci-fi drama that nicely balances out the action that fans have come to expect from Stargate, but with a lot more emphasis on the human story.
New this week, Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana star in the chronologically-challenged romantic drama, The Time Traveler’s Wife; Michael Stuhlbarg leads the Coen brothers’ A Serious Man; plus a look at Bronson, Halo: Legends, and SG-U: Stargate Universe, Season 1.0.
