Jude Law in Fantastic Beasts 2

Warner Bros. Pictures

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.


'Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald' (March 12)

The second film in the "Harry Potter"-adjacent franchise introduces Jude Law as a younger Albus Dumbledore, who recruits protagonist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) to take down the dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) before he divides and destroys the wizarding world. Lots going on there.

The movie arrives on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD on March 12 (and is already available on Digital HD). Bonus features include an extended cut of the movie, deleted scenes, and making-of featurettes.

'Green Book' (March 12)

The Best Picture Oscar winner is the feel-good tale of an unlikely interracial friendship based on a true story. Rough-and-tumble Italian-American bouncer Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen) is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali), a refined black black pianist, on a concert tour through the Deep South. While the film generated some controversy for its depictions of race relations (and questionable history of some of its key creative personnel), it still triumphed at the Academy Awards and Ali won his second Oscar.

The movie arrives on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD on March 12 (and is already available on Digital HD). Bonus features include behind-the-scenes featurettes.

'Mortal Engines' (March 12)

The sci-fi adventure is set in a post-apocalyptic world where everyone lives in giant moving cities on wheels, roaming the Earth to find resources. When an assassin and historian team up, they lead a band of outcasts to prevent London from gobbling up everything in its path. You know, that old story.

The movie arrives on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD on March 12 (and is already available on Digital HD). Bonus features include behind-the-scenes featurettes and an audio commentary.

'The Kid Brother' (March 12): The Criterion Collection has a new 4K digital restoration of this 1927 Western romp starring silent comedy legend Harold Lloyd that's an irresistible blend of action, romance, and slapstick invention.

'The Magic Flute' (March 12): Ingmar Bergman's 1975 version of Mozart's opera is considered one of the best opera films of all time. It fulfilled a longtime dream of the director and showcases his deep love of music. Criterion's release has a 2K digital restoration with uncompressed stereo soundtrack.

'Someone to Watch Over Me' (February 12): After the fantastical flop of Tom Cruise's "Legend," Ridley Scott returned to more earthbound intrigue with "Someone to Watch Over Me," an oddly underrated entry in the director's oeuvre. A sturdy romantic procedural starring Tom Berenger and Mimi Rogers (hey, it was 1987), this new edition from our friends at Shout Factory includes new interviews with writer Howard Franklin and cinematographer Steven Poster. If you've never seen it and consider yourself a Scott enthusiast, seek it out. It's got style to spare.
