June 19th 2018
Our favorite day of the week returns once more! This week is a bit lighter on releases, but there's something for everyone being released today. First up is psychological thriller Unsane hitting both on Bluray and 4K today. I enjoyed this film in theaters, it's definitely one I'd recommend checking out. Scream Factory releases two films I haven't heard of but that seem pretty interesting, Alien Predators and Night of the Lepus. Both are released for the first time on Bluray. Pacific Rim was great and I had anticipated a sequel for some time. The sequel was finally released in theaters but the trailer didn't sell me on it, so I decided to wait for the Bluray. Pacific Rim: Uprising now hits shelves today with a few retailer exclusives. Target will carry a steelbook packaging and Best Buy will carry a 4K/3D combo pack if you want to own all discs in one set. Bella Thorne lead remake Midnight Sun is also released today if you are in the mood for a dramatic romance film. So what will you buy, rent or skip this week? Let us know in the comments. Until next week!
