Warner Home Video
The Matrix trilogy directors The Wachowskis have teamed up with Run Lola Run director Tom Tywker for what may be the most ambitious movie spectacle in years. Based on the complex David Mitchell novel, Cloud Atlas tells six stories, each set in a different time and place -- from the 19th century South Pacific to a post-apocalyptic world -- which become intricately related to each other. Tom Hanks, Halle Berry and Hugh Grant each play six roles in the saga that also features Susan Sarandon, Jim Broadbent and Hugo Weaving.
Dexter: The Seventh Season
America's favorite serial killer is back for a seventh season, which explores Dexter's (Michael C. Hall) even-more-complicated relationship with his cop sister Debra (Jennifer Carpenter), who has witnessed his ritualistic slaying of another serial killer. Will she turn him in, or will she be able to channel his Dark Passenger into a force of self-control rather than an impulsive vigilante?

A Glimpse Inside the Mind Of Charles Swan III
Charlie Sheen pokes more fun at his persona as a graphic designer and ladies' man whose life spirals out of control after he's dumped by his girlfriend. Accused of being everything from a "big fake liar" and "incredibly irresponsible" to "crazy and selfish," Charles retreats into a fantasy world to help cure his heartbreak. Jason Schwarzman and Bill Murray are his cohorts who help him through his anxieties. Also starring Aubrey Plaza, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Dermot Mulroney and Patricia Arquette, the film is written and directed by Roman Coppola -- the son of Francis Ford Coppola and a regular collaborator with Wes Anderson -- whose last directorial effort was 2001's Barbarella-inspired CQ.

Stevie Nicks: 'In Your Dreams'
Virgil Films & Entertainment
Legendary Grammy winner and Fleetwood Mac songstress Stevie Nicks taps into her roots and songwriting inspiration in her intimate new documentary In Your Dreams, available exclusively on iTunes. Featuring many great candid moments and as treasure trove of photos from Stevie's youth, the film chronicles the musical journey in making the critically acclaimed album In Your Dreams with former Eurythmics star Dave Stewart, which Stevie called "the greatest year of my life" and a joyful experience like "the day the circus came to town." The normally semi-reclusive Stevie allowed cameras inside her magical old mansion high atop the hills of L.A. for the doc with a wild cast of musicians and friends, including Mick Fleetwood and Reese Witherspoon.
The pulse-pounding horror sequel arrives on 3D/2D Blu-ray disc and continues the legendary story of the homicidal Sawyer family, picking up where Tobe Hooper's 1974 horror classic left off. In Newt, Texas, people have been going missing without a trace for decades. Years later and hundreds of miles away from the original massacre, a young girl, Heather (Alexandra Daddario), discovers that she has inherited a sprawling Texas estate from an unknown grandmother. To claim her estate, Heather goes on a road trip with her friends to Newt, but learns that wealth comes at a price when she discovers the horror that waits in the cellar of her new mansion.
Frankie Go Boom
Sibling rivalry sinks to a hilarious new low as a humiliating video goes viral in the outrageous and edgy Frankie Go Boom. For decades, amateur filmmaker Bruce (Chris O'Dowd) has tortured his awkward brother Frank (Charlie Hunnam) with a series of embarrassing videos posted on the Internet. Bruce finally goes too far when he uploads a video of a disastrous one-night stand involving the inebriated daughter of a loose-cannon ex-movie star. To try to undo the damage, the brothers enlist the help of Bruce’s transsexual computer-hacker buddy (played by none other than Ron Perlman). Lizzy Caplan, Nora Dunn, Sam Anderson and Chris Noth also star.
