Liam Neeson takes on yet another revenge-obsessed protagonist role, this time as a snowplow driver who hunts down a drug lord who murdered his son. Neeson's steely persona carries the otherwise run-of-the-mill thriller. The snowbound setting makes for a visually striking counterpoint to the explosive set pieces. Extras include deleted scenes, interviews with Neeson and director Hans Petter Moland, and a making-of featurette.


Writer/director Stephen Merchant adapts the true story of WWE star Paige (Florence Pugh), who comes of age in a family obsessed with pro wrestling. Conflict arises when her brother, Zak (Jack Lowden) struggles to get his career going as her star rises. Lena Headey, Nick Frost, Vince Vaughn and Dwayne Johnson co-star in this offbeat, often amusing comedy, which is rough around the edges in the right ways and emotionally disarming at times. Extras include an extended director's cut, deleted and extended scenes, a gag reel and Merchant's commentary.


Hayao Miyazaki's 1999 anime classic gets a collector's edition rerelease, which includes a 40-page tribute booklet, storyboards, original TV commercials and making-of featurettes. The story follows a young warrior who is afflicted with a curse and seeks out a cure. He befriends the title character, a naturalist who defends the environment against humanity's cruelty, and helps settle a dispute between a working-class town and a megalomaniacal aristrocrat.
