Detroit, one of this year’s most critically acclaimed films, hits Blu-ray and DVD December 12 via Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. The project spotlights the civil unrest which impacted the city in 1967. A huge portion of the film details the Algiers Motel Incident in which police officers used abusive questioning tactics to several Black teenagers and a white woman. Dubbed the Detroit Uprising, the event claimed the lives of 43 people and led to the burning and looting of over 2,500 stores. Algee Smith (Earth to Echo), John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), and Anthony Mackie (Captain America: Civil War) co-star in the feature.
Extras on both the Blu-ray and DVD versions include five featurettes (“The Truth of Detroit,” “The Cast of Detroit,” “The Invasion of Detroit,” “The Hope of Detroit,” “Detroit – Then and Now”) and the music video “Glow” (featuring Algee Smith and Larry Reed from The Dramatics).
Justin Hartley joins the Bad Moms family as Ty Swindle, a firefighter who moonlights as a stripper and eventually bonds with Carla (Kathryn Hahn) during a waxing appointment.
“I saw the first movie and I thought they pulled it off magnificently,” said Hartley. “I’m a huge fan of the cast really. Before I did this movie I had run into Kristen (Bell) a few times but I didn’t know anybody. They’re phenomenal – they’re as advertised. They’re just great, great ladies. And then they keep adding more names and wonderful people to the cast. Plus on This Is Us – I’m lucky I get to do some comedy on the show but we do a lot of really heavy drama on the show so it’s fun to do something like this and where it’s a complete opposite of what I’m used to doing.”

George Clooney has proven himself as skilled behind the camera as he is in front of it. The six movies he’s directed have gotten primarily positive reviews, and there’s a good buzz on his latest, the dramedy Suburbicon. Given Clooney’s track record in Hollywood as an actor and director, you would think it’d be easy for him to get a project onto the big screen, but he told us it’s actually become more of a challenge for him.
