This week on home video, we’ve got Amy Schumer’s breakout comedy, the first season of an Emmy-nominated Breaking Bad spinoff, and the latest in the Terminator franchise. Then, we’ve also got a unique take on Sherlock Holmes starring Ian McKellen, an acclaimed indie dramedy, a sci-fi thriller, and a new Criterion release. Read on for the full list:

Special features include deleted scenes, gag reel, and, exclusive to the Blu-ray, extended scenes and a trio of making-of featurettes.
