New Blu-ray Releases a star is born

This week’s Blu-ray round-up features not one, but two highly underrated films from 2018 – a heist flick and a Western. You’ll also find a big Hollywood musical, two very different Disney films, and yet another reboot of Robin Hood. These are the new Blu-ray releases and their special features you should check out this week and beyond.

Paul Schrader's next film

When last we spoke of Paul Schrader‘s next film, Nine Men from Now, Schrader was hoping that his First Reformed star Ethan Hawke would star alongside Willem Dafoe. Now, Schrader has an update. The film is still happening, but sadly, Hawke is out. But Schrader does have a fun new description of the film: a Western that plays out as if Terrence Malick and David Lynch came in and took a shit on the script. Who wouldn’t want to see that?

deadwood movie plot

After years of waiting, the Deadwood movie is almost here. I still can’t believe it myself, and I probably won’t fully accept it until I’ve actually sat down to watch it. For now, though, I can take solace in some new plot details from Al Swearengen himself, Ian McShane. McShane reaffirmed some things we’ve heard already: that the movie is all about the passage of time, and how much the surviving characters have changed since we last saw them. Get the Deadwood movie plot details below.

Deadwood Movie Release Date

Fans have been waiting a long time to see a Deadwood movie bring David Milch‘s western world back to HBO. The series ended in 2006, but chatter about a movie kept emerging on and off over the past few years. Amazingly, production actually began last fall, and fans won’t have to wait very long before they get to see what’s happening 10 years following the events of the series finale in Deadwood, South Dakota.

news of the world

Paul Greengrass and Tom Hanks worked together on the harrowing Captain Phillips, and now they’re hoping to get the band back together for News of the Worldbased on the novel by Paulette Jiles – a Western set in the aftermath of the Civil War. This would be a bit of a departure for Greengrass, who has spent the last few years helming either films based on real-life events and tragedies, or Bourne sequels.

the sisters brothers clip

The Sisters Brothers is the best movie you didn’t see in 2018 – a strange, melancholy postmodern Western starring John C. Reilly, Joaquin Phoenix, Riz Ahmed and Jake Gyllenhaal. If you missed the film in theaters (and there’s a good chance you did), The Sisters Brothers is hitting digital this week, and Blu-ray next month, and you should really make an effort to see it. In honor of the digital release, we have an exclusive The Sisters Brothers clip focusing on the film’s director, Jacques Audiard.

(Welcome to Now Stream This, a column dedicated to the best movies streaming on Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and every other streaming service out there.)

Hello there, streamers. As usual, I’ve gathered together a smorgasbord of movies you can stream right now. The goal of Now Stream This is to offer variety.

Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. These are the best movies streaming right now. Let’s get streaming!

the devil all the time cast

It’s no exaggeration to call the cast of The Devil All the Time the “Avengers of casts” because, well, it’s got two Avengers and it’s just plain impressive. Netflix’s newest original film is a gothic drama directed by Antonio Campos (The Sinner, Christine) that boasts a ridiculously good cast including Tom Holland, Chris Evans, Mia Wasikowska, Robert Pattinson, and Bill Skarsgard.

deadwood movie photos

When it comes to the Deadwood movie, I’ve always maintained a “I’ll believe it when I see it” mentality. The film follow-up to David Milch‘s Shakespearian Western has been talked about for so long, that I started to think it would never happen – even when everyone involved said that it definitely was. Now I think I can finally start to accept reality, because the first Deadwood movie photos have surfaced, proving that yes, it’s really happening.
