Eli Roth‘s Death Wish is an ill-advised remake, but the film is essentially finished and ready to hit theaters sooner rather than later. In a new tongue-in-cheek attempt to sell the film to a new audience, a Grindhouse-inspired Death Wish trailer attempts to highlight the lighter side of shooting a bunch of people.

new blu-ray releases

(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.)

Welcome back, physical media fiends. As we close out January 2018, here’s a round-up of some new Blu-ray releases you’re going to want to check out. First and foremost is one of the most underrated films of 2017, Professor Marston and the Wonder Women. Beyond that, there’s Sam Raimi’s return to over-the-top horror following the Spider-Man series; a glorious B-movie about killer robots who are also school teachers; a surreal dramatization about the writing of Frankenstein; Gerard Butler fighting the weather; a reboot of the Saw franchise; and an Ethan Hawke action movie.

Here are the new Blu-ray releases you should check out this week.

James Bond Rights

The rights to the next big screen adventure of James Bond have been up in the air ever since Sony Pictures’ deal with 007 owners Eon Productions and MGM expired following the release of Spectre in 2015. Since then, we’ve been wondering which studio would pick up the rights to James Bond, and it looks like we might finally have an answer.

Back in April, Sony Pictures wasn’t going to give up the rights without a fight, but Warner Bros., Universal Pictures, 20th Century Fox and Annapurna Pictures were also said to be in the running. More recently, Apple and Amazon emerged as possible contenders, but it turns out one of the possible distributors from last spring may be coming out on top after all, and if the deal is finalized this week, it will be Annapurna Pictures distributing James Bond 25 in the United States.

Detroit re-release trailer

Detroit was Kathryn Bigelow‘s first feature film since 2012’s acclaimed Zero Dark Thirty, but the harrowing historical drama didn’t seem to have nearly as big an impact as Annapurna Pictures had hoped. The film garnered middling box office and mixed reviews and seemed to have faded from everyone’s memory after it left theaters. Now, sensing that this year’s Oscar race is slightly underwhelming, Annapurna is giving Bigelow’s film another chance with a re-release, and a new Detroit trailer has arrived to signal the new awards season push.

Tyler Perry Colin Powell

Adam McKay is best known for directing comedies like Anchorman and Step Brothers, but he’s also proven to be one of the most politically-conscious mainstream filmmakers working today. His next project is a biopic about former Vice President Dick Cheney that stars Christian Bale in the lead role, but McKay has just hired a surprising choice to play one of the key cabinet members of the Bush administration: Tyler Perry (Boo 2! A Madea Halloween) will play former Secretary of State Colin Powell. Yes, seriously.
