There isn’t a whole lot to report on the DVD front this week, presumably because folks are probably mostly done with their Christmas shopping for the season. That said, we’ve still got a few choices, including a new take on Peter Pan, a gangster biopic starring Johnny Depp, and more. Read on for details:
Joe Wright’s take on the origin story of Peter Pan stars Levi Miller as the titular hero, who is kidnapped from London by a pirate ship destined for Neverland. Once there, he befriends the future Captain Hook (Garrett Hedlund) and Tiger Lily (Rooney Mara) in a battle against the evil pirate Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman). Extras include featurettes on Blackbeard’s pirates, a look at the Peter Pan legend, a profile of Levi Miller, and more.
Tobey Maguire stars as chess prodigy Bobby Fischer in a based-on-true-events story about Fischer’s face-off against world champion Boris Spassky (Liev Schreiber) during the Cold War. The one special feature included is a look at the real story that inspired the film.
This faith-based drama centers around a struggling married couple who take advice from a friend and agree to a dramatic solution in order to save their relationship. The Blu-ray comes with a number of extras, including several featurettes on the making of the film, deleted scenes, bloopers, and more.
SyFy’s action drama imagines a future Earth where aliens called Votans have arrived, seeking shelter and finding the planet’s humans hostile to their cause. Following a battle between the species, they must now work together to survive the ravaged planet. No information on bonus features is currently available.
