New Releases for January 1--Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, everyone! We have a modest but mighty batch of New Releases to start off 2013, including some notable UK imports, an eclectic mix of catalog titles from the Warner and Fox Archives, and several 3D Blu-rays to test out any new televisions and/or players you may have acquired over the holidays. Here’s the list:

 

BLU = Also available to rent on Blu-ray disc

3D BLU = Available for rent on lovely 3D Blu-ray, though you must have a 3D TV to experience the full glory.

@ = Available for sale in the store (but we can special order anything, see us for details.)

SALE = Click this link to purchase select titles from our online store

 

LOOPER—An entertaining sci-fi/time travel tale from Brick writer director Rian Johnson, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as an assassin and Bruce Willis as his future self. Note Gordon-Levitt’s Willis-ized nose.  BLU  SALE

 

JUSTIFIED: SEASON 3—Timothy Olyphant is back as Deputy U.S. Marshall Raylan Givens in this Elmore Leonard-inspired series. Our colleague Bryan mentioned in City Arts that the show keeps on getting better and that new villain Robert Quarles (Neal McDonough), “a smarmy carpetbagger with a gun literally up his sleeve and a young man chained in his basement," is the best yet.  BLU  SALE

 

COSMOPOLIS—David Cronenberg’s new film stars Robert Pattinson as a hot shot asset manager whose life comfortable life cracks and crumbles around him while he’s stuck in traffic.  BLU  SALE

 

THE WORDS—Bradley Cooper stars as a struggling writer who enters a suspenseful world of stories within stories when he finds a brilliant manuscript and publishes it under his own name.  BLU  SALE

 

TRAILER WAR—A collection of crazy coming attractions from the good folks at Drafthouse Films. As Grand Illusion Cinema put it when it played there recently, "it's a crippling overdose of towering flames, mechanized destruction, lurking fear, poor sexual choices and spiritual devastation on an apocalyptic scale." The trailer is far too NSFW for us to post here, but you can watch it via YouTube.    BLU  SALE
