At a loss for what to watch this week? From new DVDs and Blu-rays, to what's streaming on Netflix, we've got you covered.

NEW ON DVD AND BLU-RAY

'Smallfoot' (December 11)

This animated adventure has it all: a star-studded voice cast, catchy original songs, jokes for kids and adults, and a ton of heart. A young male Yeti (Channing Tatum) discovers something he's always believed to be a myth: a human!  Migo and Percy (James Corden) become unlikely friends, despite the disapproval of the Yeti elders and the fear on the part of the humans.

The movie arrives on Blu-ray and DVD on December 11 (and is already available on Digital HD).

'The Equalizer 2' (December 11)



Denzel Washington flexes his special set of skills in reprising his role as retired Marine and spy Robert McCall. Now, he's working as a Lyft driver, while still assisting people who need help. But when his friend and colleague is brutally murdered, he sets out on a course of revenge. There are a million other subplots, but the gist is — Washington kicks ass.

The movie arrives on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD on December 11 (and is already available on Digital HD).

'Peppermint' (December 11)

Jennifer Garner rediscovers herself as an action star in this vigilante movie. She shows off her bicep guns, much like in her "Alias" days, as a mother who hones a special set of skills so she can target the cartel responsible for killing her daughter and husband.

The movie arrives on Blu-ray and DVD on December 11 (and is already available on Digital HD).

NEW VIDEO ON DEMAND, STREAMING, AND DIGITAL

'Venom' (December 11)



Sony's efforts to create a Spider-Man spinoff universe certainly paid — at the box office, at least. Critics may have torn apart this super anti-hero flick, but it raked in the big bucks. Tom Hardy stars as a journalist named Eddie Brock who comes into contact with an alien symbiote that fuses with him. That gives him superpowers but also turns him into a slime monster with a really gross, long tongue. Available December 11 on Digital HD.

'A Simple Favor' (December 11)

Blake Lively stars in this stylish thriller as Emily Nelson, an elegant and mysterious woman who strikes up a sort-of friendship with fellow mom Stephanie (Anna Kendrick). Then, Emily disappears without a trace after calling Stephanie for the titular favor. Is she dead? Where did she go? Should her husband (Henry Golding) be a suspect? This is the kind of grown-up movie — beautifully shot, with snappy performances and a carefully-built mystery — that just don't get made anymore. Available December 11 on Digital HD.

'Night School' (December 11)



It's a no-brainer to pair up Tiffany Haddish and Kevin Hart, two of Hollywood's most in-demand comedic actors.The premise of the movie is pretty simple: Hart attends night school in hopes of getting his GED, which he needs to get a sales job. Haddish is his no-nonsense teacher who doesn't take any BS from her students. Available December 11 on Digital HD.

NEW ON NETFLIX

'Roma' (December 14)

Oscar-winning director Alfonso Cuarón gets personal and emotional in this semi-autobiographical tale. The film, shot in black and white, is already getting major awards buzz. So is newcomer Yalitza Aparicio, who plays a young domestic worker for a family in the titular middle-class Mexico City neighborhood.

'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter's Tale' (Netflix Original)



The night is dark and full of terrors in this Christmas special from the teen supernatural series. It takes place on the Winter Solstice, the longest night of the year, which means there's plenty of time for magical mischief.

'Fuller House' Season 4 (Netflix Original)

The TGIF family sitcom returns to find Danny (Bob Saget), Joey (Dave Coulier), Jesse (John Stamos) and Rebecca (Lori Loughlin) all moving back to San Francisco. It will also follow Kimmy’s (Andre Barber) pregnancy, with D.J. (Candace Cameron Bure) and Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) on hand to support her.
