True Detective season 3 cast

The third season of HBO’s True Detective has added another solid character actor to its ranks.

dave bautista blade runner 2049

Towering at 6′ 3″ and boasting a thickset neck and torso, Dave Bautista is already an unlikely Hollywood star. The former professional wrestler and mixed martial arts fighter shot to stardom in 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy as Drax, the gruff musclehead alien with a heart, and continues to shine in intriguing roles like that of the Replicant Sapper Morton in Blade Runner 2049.

blade runner 2049 blu-ray

(Welcome to Not Dead Yet, a feature dedicated to what’s new on Blu-ray and what special features you should be excited about. Because yes, some of us still like to own physical copies of our movies.)

And that’s not the only overlooked film hitting shelves! An unjustly ignored 1993 comedy from the director of Gremlins receives a special collector’s edition from Shout! Factory! In addition to that, there’s a star-studded Agatha Christie adaptation (no, not that one), and a John Ford classic from the Criterion Collection. Here are the new Blu-ray releases you should check out this week.
