by | December 7, 2015 | Comments

This week on home video, we’ve got the final chapter of Phase Two in Marvel’s cinematic universe, an animated spinoff, and a popular television series that met an untimely early demise. Then we’ve got a thriller starring Keanu Reeves, a rebooted action hero, and a couple of choices from Criterion. Read on for the full list:

Ant-Man (2015) 83%

Paul Rudd stars as Scott Lang, an ex-con who’s recruited by brilliant scientist Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) to execute a daring heist. Donning a suit that allows him to change size, Lang must infiltrate Pym’s old lab in order to ensure that a revolutionary technology doesn’t fall into the wrong hands. Included are a few making-of featurettes, deleted and extended scenes, and a gag reel. Also available this week is the Marvel Phase 2 Collection, which includes every Marvel movie from Iron Man 3 to Ant-Man and a full disc of bonus features.
