December 4, 2018: This Week on DVD, Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to track down Mission: Impossible – Fallout on DVD, Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD. Not only is “Fallout” one of the best movies of the year, it just so happens to be the focus of our third issue of Moviebill. You can get the new film either by itself or as part of the the Mission: Impossible Collection, a box set that includes all six franchise entries with the best possible picture and sound.
Other new releases hitting store shelves this week include the R-rated puppet murder mystery The Happytime Murders, the Conjuring spinoff The Nun, the post-World War II thriller Operation Finale and the charming comedy drama Support the Girls, starring Regina Hall as the manager of a Hooters-like restaurant.
Over on the indie side of things, the week has even more to offer. See “Looper” star Noah Segan in the comedy drama The California No. Then, experience the weirdest adventure German cinema has to offer with the unusual fantasy thriller Snowflake. Finally, What Keeps You Alive? delivers a dark woods horror tale from writer and director Colin Minihan.
On 4K Ultra HD, there’s a pair of iconic stories about growing up a hero in the shadow of a powerful father figure. Richard Donner’s Superman celebrates its 40th anniversary while the animated classic The Lion King gets the 4K treatment as part of Disney’s ongoing Signature Collection.
It’s a very busy for small screen releases. Netflix’s hit animated video game adaptation Castlevania gets a first season release. A new Doctor Who set upgrades to Blu-ray the first season of Peter Davison’s tenure as the fifth doctor (the show’s 19th season overall). Two modern science fiction hits, A Handmaid’s Tale and Westworld both get second season releases and Kevin Costner headlines the first season of the Paramount Network’s Yellowstone.
