Two of 2017’s biggest early hits arrive this week — namely Jordan Peele’s near universally acclaimed horror debut and Hugh Jackman’s final outing as Wolverine — but we’ve also got an Oscar-nominated animated film and a couple of well-received indie horror flicks, among other things. Read on for the full list.
Daniel Kaluuya and Allison Williams star in Jordan Peele’s smash hit directorial debut, a thriller about a black man who’s invited to his white girlfriend’s hometown for a weekend and discovers some disturbing secrets about her family. It comes with deleted scenes, an alternate ending, a Q&A with Peele and the cast (hosted by Chance the Rapper), and more.
Hugh Jackman’s swan song as Wolverine catches up with him as an aging, broken man who takes to the road with Professor X (Patrick Stewart) and a young mutant (Dafne Keen) in hopes of delivering her to freedom. Bonus features include a commentary track featuring director James Mangold, a black-and-white version of the film, deleted scenes, and a behind-the-scenes featurette.
Luke Wilson and Eddie Izzard provide voices for this animated tale about a Tibetan mastiff who moves to the city to pursue his rock ‘n’ roll dreams. Extras include a making-of featurette, behind-the-scenes footage of the voice cast, a look at the animation process, and more.
Matt Damon and Willem Dafoe star in Zhang Yimou’s fantastical action epic about a group of elite soldiers in ancient China whose sole job is to defend against the invasion of vicious monsters. Special features include deleted and extended scenes, a featurette on Damon’s experiences in China, a profile of Yimou, a look at the visual effects, and more.
This week from Criterion, we have Jacques Audiard’s harrowing drama about a Tamil soldier who flees war-torn Sri Lanka but finds himself in an equally volatile Paris neighborhood in the midst of a drug war. It comes with a commentary track, new interviews with Audiard and star Antonythasan Jesuthasan, deleted scenes, and more.
