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.


'Hunter Killer' (January 29)

Gerald Butler must be exhausted from saving the world all the time.

The movie arrives on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD on January 29 (and is already available on Digital HD). Bonus features include a behind-the-scenes featurette and audio commentary.

'Suspiria' (January 29)

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.

The movie arrives on Blu-ray and DVD on January 29 (and is already available on Digital HD). Bonus features include three making-of featurettes.

'The Nutcracker and the Four Realms' (January 29)

This new take on the classic story takes a turn into the fantastical, following a young girl who journeys to a magical land to retrieve a key that will unlock an egg gifted by her dead mother. Music from Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker Suite" is incorporated and ballerina Misty Copeland makes a cameo.

The movie arrives on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD, as well as Digital HD, on January 29. Bonus features include delete scenes, making-of featurettes, and an interview with Copeland.

'Boy Erased' (January 29)

Lucas Hedges missed out on getting 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).

The movie arrives on Blu-ray and DVD on January 29 (and is already available on Digital HD). Bonus features deleted and extended scenes and Q&As with the cast.

'The Wife' (January 29)

Watch why Glenn Close has been nominated for a billion awards for this movie and others, and why she might finally (finally!) win an Oscar for her nuanced performance in a story about the compromises, secrets, and betrayals one makes in a long marriage.

The movie arrives on Blu-ray and DVD on January 29 (and is already available on Digital HD). Bonus features include Q&As with Close and the cast.

'In the Heat of the Night': The classic drama starring Sidney Poitier that tackles race and police relations is always timely, but even more so in today's political climate. The Blu-ray reissue has a new 4K digital restoration and new interviews with cast and crew.

'Screamers': The 1995 sci-fi action thriller gets its first Blu-ray release, which includes new interviews with cast and crew.


'At Eternity's Gate' (January 29)

Willem Dafoe earned an Oscar nomination for portraying the brilliant, troubled artist Vincent Van Gogh. Director Julian Schnabel's movie is not a meticulous biopic, but rather a collection of scenes drawn from the Van Gogh's letters, rumors and heresay, and even just plain invented stories. Available on Digital HD.


'Velvet Buzzsaw' (February 1)

This satirical thriller from writer/director Dan Gilroy reunites him with his "Nightcrawler" stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Rene Russo. As the Netflix original movie's trailer notes, "Something truly goddamn strange is going on" in L.A.'s contemporary art world. A collection of pieces created by a dead artist seem to have malevolent supernatural powers, targeted at collectors who are trying to profit off of them.

'Jaws' and Sequels (February 1)

Now, Steven Spielberg's seminal shark thriller can scare the daylights out of you from the comfort of your couch. Follow it up (if you dare) with "Jaws 2" and "Jaws 3."
