While checking out what is new on Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, or Hulu seems to be a daily part of our routine in this day in age, there are still plenty of people buying physical copies of movies, as well as shopping for them digitally. This week, there are a few new movies to check out from digital sellers like Google Play and iTunes, and a couple new DVD/Blu-ray releases of note.
It’s a pretty light week for releases, but there is one worth picking up, and that’s Escape Room. It wasn’t a huge hit and critics felt lukewarm about it, but the movie ended up being a ton of fun. The movie follows a group of people who are trying to win a cash prize by beating an escape room that can kill you. It’s like Cube meets Saw, but they took out all the gore. It’s very much a “turn off your brain and enjoy the ride” type of movie, which is a nice refresher between movies where superheroes are punching people through walls. GameSpot recently spoke with Escape Room star Deborah Ann Woll about her role in the film: “Generally in my career, I get cast as the sort of strong willed person with their heart on their sleeve. And it was really nice to play a physical person [this time].” You can check out an exclusive clip from the film above.
Additionally, What Men Want hits digital markets today. In the 2019 comedy, Taraji P. Henson stars as a sports agent in a male-dominated profession who gains the ability to hear men’s thoughts. Also available is Under The Silver Lake, a thriller starring Andrew Garfield. He plays Sam, who meets a mysterious woman at his apartment complex’s swimming pool. The woman disappears and Sam goes on an adventure to find her, only learning there’s a conspiracy behind her absence. Under The Silver Lake is also available to rent for $5.
Below, you’ll find a listing of the most notable digital and physical releases for this week. If you plan on shopping digitally, make sure to check multiple retailers (Google Plays, iTunes, Vudu, Movies Anywhere, etc) as prices and availability may vary.
