Dirty Rotten Scoundrels

Steve Martin and Michael Caine, both in peak form, team for this riotous 1987 comedy about rival con men who target wealthy women in France on a wager. A fresh 2K scan has the film looking better than ever. Extras include a new interview with screenwriter Dale Launer, a making-of featurette and commentary with filmmaker Frank Oz.

FIrst Man

Director Damien Chazelle ("Whiplash," "La La Land") digs deep into the background of pioneering astronaut Neil Armstrong in this biopic, detailing his family and professional struggles as he prepared to be the first man to land on the moon. Slow-moving at times, the drama is a handsome, visually stunning, but sometimes arduous effort. For my full review, click here. Extras include deleted scenes, exhaustive scene breakdowns, a spotlight on NASA and filmmaker commentary.

Johnny English Strikes Again

Rowan Atkinson reprises his role as a bumbling secret ageny who tends to accidentally come through heroically. Following a cyber attack that exposes all the identities of British agents, Johnny leaps back into action, struggling to deal with technology. Extras include a featurette on Atkinson's comedic technique, a look at the gadgets, cars and the series' past. Filmmaker David Kerr provides commentary/

Studios provided review screeners.
