January 3 also marks the return of the Blair Witch as The Guest and You’re Next helmer Adam Wingard reinvents the late ’90s “found footage” classic, expanding the franchise fauxlore with a sequel tale set in Maryland’s Black Hills.
Other recent big screen releases hitting Blu-ray include the historical courtroom drama Denial and, on DVD only, both the Taylor Lautner actioner Run the Tide and, a cousin perhaps of the Blair Witch, the faux documentary Operation Avalanche, which posits that America faked the moon landing.
Small screen releases hitting January 3 begin with the complete fifth season of HBO‘s Girls. That’s just in time to catch up before the Lena Dunham series begins its final episodes next month. Likewise, Bones season eleven hits (on DVD only) just as the long-running series’ final episodes begin tonight on FOX.
Arriving on Digital HD this week is Universal Pictures‘ thriller The Girl on the Train, the superhero family adventure Max Steel, and the stand-up comedy feature Kevin Hart: What Now? Additionally, there’s the digital release of HBO’s Issa Rae series Insecure and, hitting Friday, the Jake LaMotta biopic The Bronx Bull.
