Midnight Special Shines A Light On This Week’s DVD & Blu-ray New Releases

This week’s home video debuts include a Starman-esque sci-fi adventure, a sequel to one of the most popular romantic comedies ever made, a classic from the Warner archives, and more. Take a look:
Midnight Special

A father (Michael Shannon) goes on the run to protect his young son, Alton (Jaeden Lieberher), and uncover the truth behind the boy’s special powers. What starts as a race from religious extremists and local law enforcement quickly escalates to a nationwide manhunt involving the highest levels of the Federal Government. Ultimately his father risks everything to protect Alton and help fulfill a destiny that could change the world forever, in this genre-defying film as supernatural as it is intimately human.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2

The Portokalos Family is back as the original cast of the 2002 blockbuster hit reunite in this hilarious sequel. This time, Nia Vardalos (Toula) and John Corbett (Ian) are joined by new cast members, Rita Wilson and John Stamos. After spending most of their time focusing on their troubling teenage daughter, Toula and Ian are facing marital problems while also having to deal with yet another Greek wedding – this time, even bigger and fatter.

The Brothers Grimsby

Worthless, welfare-cheating, small-town British soccer hooligan Nobby Grimsby (Sacha Baron Cohen) moved through life with just one regret: his boyhood separation from his kid brother Sebastian (Mark Strong). The good news is that a joyous Nobby has finally tracked him down. The bad news is that Sebastian is now an elite operative for MI6, and is forced by circumstances to drag his cement-headed sibling along on a mission with the world’s fate in the balance! Improper action-comedy co-stars Rebel Wilson, Isla Fisher, Penélope Cruz.

The Unsinkable Molly Brown

Debbie Reynolds is Molly Brown, the irrepressible backwoods gal who proves herself to be the ultimate survivor. At first rejected by Denver’s high society crowd, Molly goes on to live through the famous shipwreck of the Titanic and emerge as a leader of the gold rush-era elite. This vibrant musical by Meredith Willson co-stars Ed Begley, Hermione Baddeley, and Harve Presnell; songs include “I Ain’t Down Yet” and “Belly Up to the Bar, Boys.”
