Well Go USA
Late Glee star Cory Monteith's breakout film role as a convict and street hustler was sadly to be his last. In this gritty crime drama, David Morse plays the title role, narcotics detective Eugene "Mack" McCanick, who discovers that Monteith's seemingly harmless young criminal, Simon Weeks, has been released from prison. Mack instigates a brutal manhunt, without permission from the Chief of Police (Ciarán Hinds), to protect a secret from his past - one that only Weeks can expose. Bonus materials include a behind-the-scenes featurette, as well as deleted and extended scenes.
About Last Night
Kevin Hart, Michael Ealy, Joy Bryant and Regina Hall trade quips, beds and barbs in their new romantic comedy. Back in 1986, Brat Packers Demi Moore and Rob Lowe showed skin and sin along with James Belushi, Megan Mullally and Elizabeth Perkins in the big-screen adaptation of David Mamet's play Sexual Perversity in Chicago, retitled About Last Night. Now, a whole new cast is putting a modern spin on the story in Los Angeles, with Kevin, Michael, Joy and Regina playing two couples that journey from the bar to the bedroom -- and are eventually put to the test in the real world. Will they embrace -- or fall prey to -- the typical trappings of love and monogamy? Also starring Christopher McDonald and Paula Patton.
The Monuments Men
Taking a cue from his Ocean's Eleven movies, George Clooney assembles the ultimate cast for his World War II saga, including Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin, Hugh Bonneville and Bob Balaban. Based on the true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history, The Monuments Men follows an unlikely World War II platoon, tasked by FDR with going into Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners. With the art trapped behind enemy lines and the German army ordered to destroy everything as the Reich fell, seven museum directors, curators, and art historians find themselves risking their lives in a race against time to defend mankind’s greatest achievements. Special features include George Clooney’s Mission and Marshaling the Cast, while Blu-ray exclusives include deleted scenes and the featurettes The Real Monuments Men and A Woman Amongst the Monuments Men.
