Blade Runner 2049, one of this year’s most acclaimed films and a more than worthy follow up to Blade Runner, hits Blu-ray and DVD January 16 via Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.
The sequel centers on LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), a replicant who is on a mission to find former officer Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), the notorious blade runner who has been missing for over 30 years. Robin Wright co-stars as K’s supervisor whose orders run counter to K’s ulterior motives.

The DVD comes with the Blade Runner 101 segments.
Wonder Woman is a forced to be reckoned with and she’s one of the most powerful superheroes in the DC Comics universe. Director Patty Jenkins (Monster) gives glimpses of Diana Prince’s (Gal Gadot) warrior spirit in the new trailer of the highly anticipated flick Wonder Woman.
Along with giving viewers a glimpse of Diana’s life in the female dominated land of Themyscria, the trailer thankfully shows that American intelligence officer Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) is not Diana’s knight in shining armor. Instead, Steve is saved by Diana on her land’s distant shores. Though her Amazonian paradise seems impenetrable, World War I is raging on, and our heroine believes she can make a positive difference in this escalating conflict. The feature co-stars Robin Wright, Connie Nielsen, and David Thewlis.
Having a woman be front and center of a comic books franchise is simply rare, and Gadot seems to be up for this monumental and gratifying task. Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think!

Opening in theaters today, the harrowing drama THE IMPOSSIBLE is, ultimately, a story of hope and triumph of the human spirit. Based on the real-life events surrounding a vacationing family torn apart by the 2004 tsunami in Thailand, the film manages to terrify and uplift at the same time. Directed by J.A. BAYONA from a script by SERGIO G. SANCHEZ, the cast includes NAOMI WATTS, EWAN McGREGOR and TOM HOLLAND.
Sitting down with NAOMI WATTS a couple of weeks ago, she talked about taking the role and how unbelievable the story is even though she knows it’s completely true.
Very soon to be seen in THE IMPOSSIBLE as real-life tsunami disaster victim Maria Belon, Oscar nominated actress NAOMI WATTS has just finished her work on a highly anticipated biopic set against the last two years in the life of Britain’s cherished but beleaguered Princess Diana. We sat down with the actress not too long ago to talk about her upcoming films and she admitted that playing real-life characters can be problematic. In the case of Ms. Belon, it was a huge asset having her on-set to provide background and insight while, in the case of the late Princess, there was a plethora of information but no contact with the actual subject. That said, it was a challenging experience either way.
