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 VIDEO ON DIGITAL, DEMAND, AND STREAMING
'A Star Is Born' (January 15)
There's a reason this movie keeps getting remade. This time, Bradley Cooper makes his directorial debut and stars as the grizzled country rocker Jackson Maine. Stepping into the role of the ingenue who dazzles him and the world with her incredible vocals is Lady Gaga. Their soaring duet of "Shallow" is just the start of an emotional and tear-jerking journey. With its high-profile cast, show biz subject, and excellent filmmaking, "A Star Is Born" catapulted straight into awards season buzz. Available on Digital HD on January 15.
'Suspiria' (January 15)
Director Luca Guadagnino ("Call Me By Your Name") goes from peaches and young love to the horrors surrounding a prestigious Berlin dance company. Dakota Johnson plays an aspiring dancer who enrolls, only to discover the company is run by a coven of witches. The movie is remake of a 1977 cult classic, but Tilda Swinton's unbelievable performance in multiple roles makes this version completely unique. Available on Digital HD on January 15.
'Boy Erased' (January 15)
Lucas Hedges is likely to get his second Oscar nomination in three years in this intense drama about the teen son of Baptists parents who is forced to attend a gay conversion therapy camp. There, he struggles to understand his identity, his faith, and his relationships to his preacher father (Russell Crowe) and protective mother (Nicole Kidman). Available on Digital HD on January 15.
'Hunter Killer' (January 15)
Gerald Butler must be exhausted from saving the world all the time. This action thriller from the producers of "Olympus Has Fallen" takes Butler under the Arctic Ocean as the captain of a Navy submarine. When he uncovers a secret Russian coup, he must slip through enemy waters to stop WWIII from becoming a reality. Available on Digital HD on January 15.
NEW ON DVD AND BLU-RAY
'Halloween' (January 15)
Forty years after John Carpenter's 1978 horror classic, Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode. Director David Gordon Green ignores all of the other films in the franchise and makes this a direct sequel to the original. Laurie, still haunted by her traumatic experience with Michael Myers, faces the serial killer once again. And this time, she's ready to fight back.
The movie arrives on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD on January 15 (and is already available on Digital HD).
'Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween' (January 15)
The sequel to the family-friendly horror movie brings back all the zany mischief and gentle scares of the original. There isn't much of a plot, but kids won't mind that much. The movie arrives on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD on January 15 (and is already available on Digital HD).
'The Old Man and the Gun' (January 15)
It's an outrage Robert Redford has never received an acting Oscar, but maybe Academy members will finally recognize his last performance before retirement. He stars in this true story-inspired tale of Forrest Tucker, who escapes prison at the age of 70 and goes on to pull off a series of daring heists, confounding law enforcement and enchanting the public.
The movie arrives on Blu-ray and DVD on January 15 (and is already available on Digital HD).
NEW ON NETFLIX
'Carmen Sandiego' (January 18)
Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego? On Netflix, of course. The globe-trotting international thief and criminal mastermind who first appeared in a series of educational video games in the mid-'80s is the protagonist of her very own Netflix animated series. The reboot explores the origin story of Carmen (voiced by "Jane the Virgin" star Jane Rodriguez), with the trailer providing glimpses of the school where she hones her thieving ways as an agent of V.I.L.E.
'Grace and Frankie' Season 5 (January 18)
Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin are back as the odd couple best friends. They're trying to take back their house (from special guest star RuPaul) and getting into all kinds of mischief in the process.
'Marvel's The Punisher' Season 2 (January 18)
There will be blood when the vigilante drama returns. Former marine Frank (Jon Bernthal) finds his quiet life is blown up when he saves Amy (Giorgia Whigham). Embroiled in the mystery around her and the people chasing after her, Castle also finds his former friend, Ben Russo aka Jigsaw (Ben Barnes), has survived their last encounter and is hell-bent on killing him.
