Trailer DVD Blu-ray by Mars

 Hey everyone! I hope everyone is having a great week. There's a ton of movies releasing today onto DVD! So here are the one's I decided to highlight and then I will give ya a link to the rest cause there's literally 32 of them. I hope you all like the one's I did choose to highlight however!

  

Kick-Ass

Inspired by his love of comic books, high school student Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson) decides to transform himself into a masked crime fighter -- a decision that eventually thrusts the teenager into Internet stardom. Soon, Dave's antics inspire a wave of would-be heroes to don costumes and live out their superhero fantasies. Nicolas Cage, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Chloe Moretz also star in this comic book adaptation from director Matthew Vaughn.

Starring: Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz
Director: Matthew Vaughn

Loved it! Hit-Girl is the best part!

 

Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Middle school isn't all it's cracked up to be for self-described "wimpy kid" Greg Heffley, who discovers a frightening new world teeming with boys who are taller, tougher and hairier than he is -- and decides to document it all in his diary. Directed by Thor Freudenthal, this kid-friendly comedy based on Jeff Kinney's illustrated novel cast its star by asking kids to submit their auditions online.

Starring: Zachary Gordon, Robert Capron
Director: Thor Freudenthal

Heard from co-workers that it's a really good family movie.

 

To Save a Life

After tragedy strikes a childhood friend, Jake Taylor (Randy Wayne) reevaluates his life. By reaching out to lonely outsider Jonny (Sean Michael), Jake risks losing everything that matters most to him, including a college scholarship and his friends. A poignant look at doing what's right and the power of unconditional love, this Christian drama also stars Deja Kreutzberg, Joshua Weigel and Steven Crowder.

Starring: Randy Wayne, Deja Kreutzberg
Director: Brian Baugh

Didn't have time to watch it. Co-workers said it was good though.

 

The Ghost Writer

A writer (Ewan McGregor) stumbles upon a long-hidden secret when he agrees to help former British Prime Minister Adam Lang (Pierce Brosnan) complete his memoirs on a remote island after the politician's assistant drowns in a mysterious accident. In director Roman Polanski's tense drama, the author realizes that his discovery threatens some very powerful people who will do anything to ensure that certain episodes from Lang's past remain buried.

Starring: Ewan McGregor, Jon Bernthal
Director: Roman Polanski

Great actors in this but I for a lot of the movie I was bored. I think it needed to be 90 mins instead of 128 mins.

 

After.Life

As the life of young Anna Taylor (Christina Ricci) hangs precariously in the balance, funeral director Eliot Deacon (Liam Neeson), who has a mysterious ability to help the dead transition to the afterlife, has complete control over her fate. Though it's possible she isn't dead after all, it's equally possible that she's already in hell. Agnieszka Wojtowicz-Vosloo directs and co-writes this macabre thriller; Justin Long co-stars.

Starring: Liam Neeson, Christina Ricci
Director: Agnieszka Wojtowicz-Vosloo

This had a horror movie feel and I don't watch those!
