New Blu-ray Releases Glass

Physical media will live forever! That’s what I keep telling myself every night as I cry myself to sleep. For now, at least, physical media is sticking around, and that’s where this column comes in – rounding up the Blu-ray releases you might want to check out, while Blu-rays still exist. This week, we have the confusing conclusion to M. Night Shyamalan’s superhero trilogy; a charming Amblin-esque throwback from the director of Attack the Block; Keanu Reeves playing God; a crime-thriller guaranteed to piss some people off; and some wicked witchcraft. In addition to all that, her about the outrageously complicated “Escape Room in a Box” I was sent to promote the upcoming Blu-ray release of Escape Room. These are the new Blu-ray releases and their special features you should check out this week and beyond.

Glass Honest Trailer

Earlier this year, Glass hit theaters, bringing together M. Night Shyamalan‘s 19-year old grounded superhero drama Unbreakable and his kidnapping thriller Split into one single universe where a superhero finally faces off with two powerful super villains. And by face off, we meet quietly and calmly sit next to each other while a conniving doctor tries to convince them that they’re not characters from a real life comic book. It’s…something else, and the Glass Honest Trailer is just as perplexed as we are after watching this movie. Beware of spoilers! Read More »

Glass Blu-ray Contest

M. Night Shyamalan‘s Unbreakable trilogy (unofficially dubbed the Eastrail 177 Trilogy by some) has come to a close.

The LEGO Movie 2 Box Office

The weekend box office numbers are in, and even though the animated sequel The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part took the top spot, it performed well below expectations.

The LEGO Movie 2 was expected to open with at least $50 million last weekend, but it only ended up with a haul of $34.4 million. That’s roughly half of what The LEGO Movie earned in its opening weekend back in 2014. Is this a case of franchise fatigue for the building brick property? Or did the marketing for the sequel just not appeal to audiences this time around? Read More »
