Sink your teeth into a cheesy love story as Stephenie Meyer‘s soppy vampire teen romance, Twilight, makes its way to DVD. Also out this week, Will Smith stars in Seven Pounds; the animated film Bolt speeds through New York City; and Ray Stevenson takes no prisoners in Punisher: War Zone.
In this week’s new video releases, Anne Hathaway plays a lost soul trying to reconnect with her family in Rachel Getting Married; Jason Statham is back on the road again for the action-packed Transporter 3; and Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott buddy up for the comedy, Role Models.
Arriving on store shelves this week, travel with Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman to Australia’s rugged Outback for an adventure-packed romance, or visit with Sean Penn in his Oscar-winning performance as the courageous Harvey Milk. Also out this week, but much less interesting, Samuel L. Jackson and Bernie Mac star in Soul Men, and Disney drops their latest ridiculous comedy, Beverly Hills Chihuahua.
This is a quiet week for new releases, but three new films are out in stores today, which may be just enough to keep you entertained for the next few days. On DVD this week, and for anyone with Hollywood dreams, there’s the comedic drama What Just Happened. On a much lighter, sillier note I take a look at the teen comedy Sex Drive. And also out this week, the fourth Futurama movie, Into the Wild Green Yonder.
New this week on DVD, Angelina Jolie stars in Clint Eastwood‘s Changling, the story of a mother in 1920s Los Angeles whose son goes missing. Also out today, I take a look at Ridley Scott‘s Body of Lies; the Dead Like Me movie, Life After Death; and Bill Maher‘s documentary, Religulous.
This week, a mysterious plague sweeps across a city in Blindness, starring Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo. Also on DVD, Oliver Stone‘s W. takes a look at the life of former U.S. president George W. Bush, Spike Lee‘s Miracle At St. Anna looks back at World War II “Buffalo Soldiers,” Diane Lane and Richard Gere star in the romance Nights In Rodanthe, and Bruce Campbell directs himself in My Name Is Bruce.
This week on DVD, two couples go on very different adventures, with teenagers enjoying an all-night escapade in Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, while two adults aim for more x-rated fun in Zack and Miri Make a Porno. Plus, Paul Gross‘ Canadian war epic, Passchendaele, Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, and Bottle Shock.
Taking a look through the pile of new home video releases, Guy Ritchie and Woody Allen both debut their latest oh-so-recognizable films, the gangster comedy RocknRolla, and the sexual drama Vicky Cristina Barcelona, respectively. Also out this week, the cop drama Pride and Glory, and the comedy The Rocker.
The lights are going out and only two kids know what to do about it in City of Ember, one of this week’s new DVD releases. Also out this week, John Cusack stars in the animated Igor, Mark Whalberg does the old good cop/bad cop routine in Max Payne, or get horrified with the original My Bloody Valentine, and Saw V.
Take a trip to the Wild West this week with the release of Appaloosa, starring Ed Harris and Viggo Mortensen. Also arriving on DVD, Kiefer Sutherland stars in the monumentally awful horror film, Mirrors; My Best Friend’s Girl has friends fighting for Kate Hudson; Sin City debuts on Blu-ray; and check out Joss Whedon‘s Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog.
