20th Century Fox Home Entertainment
Joseph Gordon-Levitt's much-talked-about writer-directorial debut follows JGL as the title character whose passions in life are his body, his pad, his ride, his family, his church, his pals, his women – and his adult film-watching hobby. When he meets Scarlet Johansson's character Barbara at a bar, what follows is a perfect romance derailed by her socially accepted escape fantasies vs. his socially maligned ones. Can the two meet in the middle, or will his X-rated addiction tear them apart? Featuring a fun cameo by Channing Tatum and Anne Hathaway, Don Jon also stars Julianne Moore, Rob Brown, Brie Larson and Tony Danza. Includes behind-the-scenes featurettes and more.

Enough Said casts Gandolfini as Albert, who starts dating Julia's massage therapist, Eva, a single and divorced parent whose daughter is headed to college. Eva also unwittingly befriends Albert's ex-wife, Marianne (Catherine Keener), and slowly begins to learn all of his vices -- prompting her to doubt their relationship. Can Albert and Eva possibly make it work without having the past spoil the present? Also starring Toni Collette, Ben Falcone, Eve Hewson, Tavi Gevinson and Tracey Fairaway.

The legendary, down-and-dirty New York club that became the launchpad for the American Punk movement in the '70s finally gets its due… Alan Rickman plays Hilly Krystal, the infamous owner of the fabled Bowery dive -- originally intended to be a country, blues and bluegrass establishment, CBGB's transformed into a music mecca for up-and-coming rockers ranging from The Ramones, Dead Boys and Iggy Pop to The Police, Talking Heads and Blondie. Directed by Randall Miller (Nobel Son, Bottle Shock), CBGB co-stars Ashley Greene, Johnny Galecki, Rupert Grint, Donal Logue, Malin Akerman, Justin Bartha, Stana Katic, Taylor Hawkins, Joel David Moore, Mickey Sumner, Freddy Rodriguez, Ryan Hurst and Bradley Whitford.
The Way Way Back
Steve Carell reunites with his Little Miss Sunshine co-star Toni Collette for this poignant and fun coming-of-age comedy co-starring Maya Rudolph, Sam Rockwell, Allison Janney, AnnaSophia Robb and relative newcomer Liam James. The Way Way Back follows introverted 14-year-old Duncan's (played by James) summer vacation from hell with his mother (Collette), her overbearing boyfriend (Carell) and his daughter (Zoe Levin). The awkward Duncan has a tough time fitting in until he finds an unexpected friend in Owen (Rockwell), the manager of the Water Wizz water park. As he begins to find his place, Duncan begins to slowly open up and enjoy a summer he will never forget. Also starring Amanda Peet and Rob Corddry, The Way Way Back is directed by Nat Faxon and Jim Rash (writers of The Descendants).
Insidious: Chapter 2
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment
Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne endure a whole new set of thrills and chills in Insidious: Chapter 2. Lin Shaye, Barbara Hershey, Ty Simpkins and co-writer Leigh Whannell also return along with James Wan at the helm for the sequel, which follows the haunted Lambert family as they seek to uncover the mysterious childhood secret that has left them dangerously connected to the spirit world.
The new comedy from the people who "conceived" Reno: 911! finds Rob Corddry and Leslie Bibb as Jack and Vanessa, a happy but nervous expectant couple that moves into the most haunted fixer-upper in New Orleans, complete with a deadly demonic curse. Things soon spiral out of control for the couple, as well as their-not-so-helpful neighbor F'Resnel (Keegan-Michael Key), Vanessa's friendly psychiatrist (Michael Ian Black), Vanessa's Wiccan sister Marjorie (Riki Lindhome) and the detectives assigned to look into the rising body count (Rob Huebel and Paul Scheer). With the Hell Baby causing havoc, can the Vatican's elite exorcism team (Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon) save the day?
