'Dumbo' underwhelms, 'Us' crosses $100 million at box office

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

CINDERELLA (1950)

In celebration of the animated classic's upcoming 70th anniversary, Disney rereleased the film on digital and Blu-ray in a Walt Disney Signature Collection. You can watch in "enhanced edition," with pop-up trivia and storyboards, and there's also a trivia Q&A with the stars of the Disney Channel's "Sydney to the Max" stars. The gorgeous rags-to-riches tale, which set the bar for princess fairy tales, holds up in timeless brilliance. Other extras include concept art and making-of featurettes.

DUMBO (2019)

A meandering story and oddball performances weigh down this remake of the groundbreaking 1941 animated Disney classic, but gorgeous art direction goes miles toward redeeming director Tim Burton's uneven production. For my full review, click here. Danny DeVito, Michael Keaton, Eva Green and Colin Farrell star. Extras include eight deleted scenes, cast interviews, scene breakdowns and background featurettes.

WAR AND PEACE (1967)

A lavish 1967 epic from acclaimed Soviet director Sergey Bondarchuk, this adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's classic novel set a standard for production value, performances and writing, easily bringing home the best foreign language film Oscar. The film shines in a lavish Criterion Collection 2K restoration. Extras include a tribute booklet, an interview with Bondarchuk's son, Fedor Bondarchuk and two making-of documentaries.

Studios provided review screeners.
