NEW ON DVD AND BLU-RAY

'Mission: Impossible - Fallout' (December 4)

With each "Mission: Impossible" movie, Tom Cruise puts himself further in harm's way. In "Fallout," now available on Digital HD, he jumps out of planes, races across Paris on a motorcycle, runs across rooftops (and breaking his ankle in the process), and flies a helicopter.  At this point, aside from being one of Hollywood's biggest stars, he's also probably one of its top stuntmen.

The movie arrives on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD on December 4 (and is already available on Digital HD).

Watch Cruise and director Christopher McQuarrie talk about how they pulled off that crazy rooftop scene:



'The Nun' (December 4)

The movie arrives on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD on December 4 (and is already available on Digital HD).

'The Happytime Murders' (December 4)
