Here are this week's hottest home video releases. Find them on disc, or streaming services such as iTunes, Vudu, Amazon and Google Play.

Wes Anderson's quirky 2014 comedy gets the Criterion treatment, with a fresh 2K digital transfer and loads of extras. Ralph Fiennes, Saoirse Ronan, Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton and Adrien Brody head up the impressive cast in a picaresque tale of a stolen painting caper that goes down at a revered hotel. Extras include filmmaker commentary, cast and crew interviews and behind-the-scenes footage.

While live-action adaptations of the "Mortal Kombat" video game franchise have been subpar, this animated effort handles the subject material with better care and more satisfying results. Joel McHale and Jennifer Carpenter lead the voice cast of this dark tale of a martial arts master's quest for vengeance through a deadly hand-to-hand fighting tournament. A Extras include filmmaker commentary, character breakdowns and a look at the animation process.

Studios provided review screeners.
