CBC held their annual Upfront television event this morning in Toronto to announce their new fall and winter schedule, from 2016 into 2017, which features a range of new programming from daytime series to fall primetime, and original digital content.
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.
