last-year-at-marienbad-1961-new-on-dvd-and-bluray

Product Description: Winner of the Golden Lion at the 1961 Venice Film Festival, Last Year in Marienbad (1961) is a hypnotically beautiful puzzle box of a film, and one of the most influential in history. Alan Resnais's sensuous tracking shots and Delphine Seyrig's iconic Chanel gowns have become part of the cinematic lexicon, and can now be seen in a gorgeous 4K restoration from StudioCanal. In a large international hotel in the European resort town of Marienbad, with a sumptuous but austere décor-a marble universe with gold paneling, statues, and stuff servants-the rich, anonymous, idle clientele circulates. A man (Giorgio Albertazzi) is convinced he met an enigmatic woman (Seyrig, Jeanne Dielman) the previous year at the same location, and perhaps had a flirtation. A second man (Sacha Pitoëff, Inferno), possibly the woman's lover or husband, repeatedly intimidates the first man. Their relations unfold through flashback shards that never quite fit into place, their lives a hall of mirrors that never reveal a true self.

magnificent-obsession-1954-new-on-dvd-and-blu-ray

Product Description: Reckless playboy Bob Merrick (Rock Hudson, in his breakthrough role) crashes his speedboat, requiring emergency attention from the town’s only resuscitator—at the very moment that a beloved local doctor has a heart attack and dies waiting for the lifesaving device. Thus begins one of Douglas Sirk’s most flamboyant master classes in melodrama, a delirious Technicolor mix of the sudsy and the spiritual in which Bob and the doctor’s widow, Helen (Jane Wyman), find themselves inextricably linked amid a series of increasingly wild twists, turns, trials, and tribulations.

i-trapped-the-devil-2019-new-on-dvd-and-bluray

Product Description: Christmas is supposed to be a time for peace and joyful family reunions. But when Matt (AJ Bowen) and his wife Karen (Susan Burke) show up unannounced at the home of his estranged brother Steve (Scott Poythress) to celebrate the holidays, they are instead greeted with a horrifying surprise: trapped in Steve's basement is a man ... but not just any man: Steve believes that his hostage is none other than the devil himself. As shock and skepticism turn to fear and paranoia, Matt and Karen find themselves facing a terrifying quandary — is Steve dangerously unhinged? Or could the mysterious stranger really be the embodiment of evil incarnate? Either way, the stage is set for a true Christmas from hell in this provocative holiday horror.

new-trailers-angel-has-fallen-ready-or-not-overcomer-brittany-runs-a-marathon

Gerard Butler returns as United States Secret Service agent Mike Banning in the threequel "Angel Has Fallen", which is now in theaters. The new installment has received a mixed reception from critics, which is pretty much on par with the rest of series, but audiences seem to love the movie as CinemaScore reports an "A-" grade from opening night polls, and pundits expect the film to top the box-office charts. It already raked in an impressive $1.5 million from previews at 2,600 locations, and it could finish the weekend with as much as $15 million, or more, from 3,286 theaters.

The horror comedy "Ready or Not" starring Samara Weaving opened this Friday in 2,855 theaters and brought in $1.9 million on opening day, including $730,000 from previews, so pundits expect this one to finish outside the Top 5 with around $5 million. Both the film's critical and audience receptions have been generally positive ("B+" from CinemaScore).

The last new semi-wide release is Sony' faith-based drama "Overcomer" from the creators of "War Room". The film opened in 1,723 theaters and brought in $772,000 from Thursday previews. Although it has received a mixed critical reception, audience reactions have been very positive ("A+" from CinemaScore). However, it won't be enough it seems as the film is expected to gross around $5 million in its opening weekend.

In limited release it might be worth checking out the comedy "Brittany Runs a Marathon" starring Jillian Bell, which won the Audience Award at this year's Sundance Film Festival, and was also nominated for the Grand Jury Prize.
