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

BlacKK Klansman

Iconoclast filmmaker Spike Lee tells the real-life story of Ron Stallworth (John David Washington), a black cop who infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan in the 1970s. Adam Driver and Alec Baldwin co-star in the tense story, which tells a gripping story while making poignant observations about race relations in the 70s, as well as today. Extras include filmmaker commentary.

Christopher Robin

Ewan McGregor plays the grown-up version of the boy immortalized in his father A.A. Milne's Winnie the Pooh tales. While dealing with crises in his career and family life, he is stunned to see his childhood doll friends return to help him with his problems. Excellent animation that replicates the ragdoll design of the original Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo, Rabbit and Owl meshes with Ewan's affable performance in a charming, funny family film. Extras include a slew of featurettes, including a look at the original dolls, the voice performances and Walt Disney's past with the Pooh franchise.

The Incredibles 2

The long-awaited Pixar blockbuster delivered the action and humor that fans had been clamoring for in the 14-year wait after the original. Rounding up most of the original voice cast (Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter and Craig T. Nelson), the film juxtaposes Mr. Incredible's struggles with domestic life -- particularly dealing with his superpowered baby, Jack-Jack -- as his wife, Elastigirl, does the heavy-lifting superhero work, infiltrating sinister forces of a nefarious conglomeration. For my full review, click here. A stacked slate of extras include scene breakdowns, animator commentary, short films, deleted scenes and a documentary on Jack-Jack's development.

Studios provided review screeners.
