New on DVD and Blu-ray: The Host, Spring Breakers, The Jerk

thehost_032813_1600

Movies on DVD and Blu-ray July 9th include ‘The Host,’ ‘Tyler Perry’s Temptation,’ ‘Spring Breakers,’ ‘Admission,’ ‘The Gatekeepers,’ ‘Dead Man Down,’ ‘The Tower,’ ‘Street Trash,’ ‘Hands of the Ripper,’ ‘The Jerk,’ and much more!

 

After a week of pretty much nothing on home video due to the holiday, the week of July 9th has some interesting new releases. The biggest title of the week is the film that everyone thought was going to be the next Twilight franchise … and failed to generate much in the way of box office or critical praise: Stephanie Meyer’s The Host. With the failure of another film based on a series of YA novels (Beautiful Creatures), it seems that Twilight was able to capture something that these other films have not. But was The Host unfairly maligned? Now is your chance to find out!

Also this week, Spring Breakers comes to home video (our own Jeremy Fogelman reviewed the film during its theatrical run), Colin Farrell in Dead Man Down, Tyler Perry’s Temptation, Tina Fey and Paul Rudd in Admission, and the well-regarded documentary The Gatekeepers. One title that got very little release in the US (if any) but has a spectacular trailer, The Tower looks like a new spin on the disaster movie classic The Towering Inferno. And making its long-awaited Blu-ray debut this week, Steve Martin’s The Jerk finally gets some high-def love from Universal (can we please have Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid too?). In fact, Universal has a collection of films repackaged and categorized by decade, so if you’ve always wanted a particular film in your collection, now is your change to grab it! Have a look at our shopper’s guide to see all of the releases for July 9th, and click on a link to make a purchase or to get more information about a title.
