This week on home video, we’ve got a Clint Eastwood drama based on true events, a western remake, and an animated feature, plus a couple of Certified Fresh documentaries, a horror flick, and a holiday family film. Read on for the full list.
This documentary takes a look back at the meeting and conversation between the two legendary directors that led to the eponymous book, which covers all of Hitchcock’s films and his influential techniques. Special features include an appreciation of Hitchcock’s film Notorious, Peter Bogdonavich musing on Hitchcock, Richard Linklater musing on Truffaut, and more.
Tom Hanks stars in Clint Eastwood’s drama about the real-life US Airways pilot who saved all 155 people aboard his plane when he was forced to attempt an emergency landing in the Hudson river. Bonus features include a profile of the incident and a look at the real life Chesley Sullenberger, a look at filming the central set piece, and more.
Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt star in this remake of the classic western (itself a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai) about a ragtag band of gunslingers who are hired to protect a small town from ruthless bandits. Extras include deleted scenes, interviews with the cast and crew, a look at the actors’ preparation process, a profile of the music, and more.
A sequel to Dolly Parton’s holiday film Coat of Many Colors, this family drama based on Parton’s own life tells the story of a small town family who make sacrifices to bring holiday cheer during a particularly difficult Christmas. No information on special features is currently available.
