Blu-ray and DVD Buy From Amazon

With all the subtlety, restraint, and complexity he is known for, director Michael Bay chronicles the secret ex-military security team that responded to the Benghazi attacks that resulted in American Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens’ death. The adaptation of Mitchell Zuckoff's book 13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened In Benghazi stars James Badge Dale, John Krasinski, Toby Stephens, Pablo Schreiber, Max Martini, David Denman, Dominic Fumusa, and Freddie Stroma.

Blu-ray and DVD Buy From Amazon

The winner of last year's Grand Jury Prize in Venice was partially financed through Kickstarter, originally performed as a experimental play for composer Carter Burwell’s Theater of the New Ear project, took two years to make, and features the most explicit puppet sex since Team America: World Police. Anomalisa is another bizarre but soulful contribution to cinema from Charlie Kaufman, the writer of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Adaptation. and writer-director of Synecdoche, New York. Co-directed with animator Duke Johnson (Community), the film follows Michael Stone (voiced by David Thewlis), the author of customer service book How May I Help You to Help Them?, as he travels to Cincinnati to give a speech. For Stone, every person in his world sounds like the actor Tom Noonan, until he meets Lisa (voiced by Jennifer Jason Leigh).

Joel and Ethan Coen's madcap film industry/kidnap comedy set during Hollywood's Golden Age stars George Clooney, Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton, Josh Brolin, Ralph Fiennes, Frances McDormand, and Jonah Hill. It may not rank with the brothers' best work, but critics found it agreeably silly.

Blu-ray and DVD Buy From Amazon

Walt Disney Animation's 55th feature is set in a metropolis where animals from every environment live together. The story focuses on Officer Judy Hopps, voiced by Ginnifer Goodwin. She’s the first bunny on the police force, and she’s determined to crack a case, but to do so she has to team up with a fox, Nick Wilde, voiced by Jason Bateman. Directed by Byron Howard (Tangled), Rich Moore (Wreck-It Ralph) and Jared Bush, the film plays well with children and adults thanks to its well-timed message of tolerance, clever humor, and attention to detail.

Blu-ray and DVD Buy From Amazon

Producer J.J. Abrams described his latest thriller as a “blood relative" of the 2008 monster movie Cloverfield, though it isn't a direct sequel. Director Dan Trachtenberg enlists stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead, John Goodman and John Gallagher Jr., for a claustrophobic, small-scale story about a young woman (Winstead) who wakes up from a car accident in the basement of a man (Goodman) who claims to have saved her life—and also claims that she cannot go outside, because the world has been rendered uninhabitable by a chemical attack.

Blu-ray and DVD Buy From Amazon

Stars Charlotte Rampling and Tom Courtenay took the top acting awards at the Berlin International Film Festival for their work in this British drama about a marriage threatened by long-held secrets from Weekend director Andrew Haigh. One of the best-reviewed films of 2015, 45 Years also landed on dozens of critic top-10 lists at year's end.

Blu-ray and DVD Buy From Amazon

Sally Field stars as Doris, who takes a liking to her company’s new art director, John (New Girl’s Max Greenfield). As she begins hanging out with John and his friends, Doris finds herself renewed, but her best friend, Roz (Tyne Daly), believes Doris is making a fool of herself. Michael Showalter’s film earned good reviews (and the Audience Award) when it premiered at SXSW last year.

Blu-ray and DVD Buy From Amazon

MI6’s most dangerous spy (Mark Strong) is reunited with his English football hooligan brother (Sacha Baron Cohen) in a spy spoof co-written by Cohen and directed by Louis Leterrier (Now You See Me). Also starring are Rebel Wilson, Ian McShane, Annabelle Wallis, Isla Fisher, Penélope Cruz, Scott Adkins, Rory Keenan, Gabourey Sidibe, and Tamsin Egerton. Critics were largely underwhelmed upon the film's release in March.

Ciro Guerra’s third feature was an Oscar nominee for best foreign language film, and also collected awards at Sundance and Cannes. The black-and-white drama centers on the Amazonian shaman Karamakate—the last of his tribe—and two scientists who visit him: Theodor Koch-Grünberg in 1909, and Richard Evans Schultes over 30 years later.

poster . Knight of Cups Trailers

Blu-ray and DVD Buy From Amazon

As 2013’s To the Wonder showed, even an "average" Terrence Malick effort has something to offer fans of the iconoclastic director. This long-in-development follow-up centers on Christian Bale’s Rick, a writer, as he indulges in a life of excess, has relationships with six different women (Cate Blanchett, Imogen Poots, Freida Pinto, Natalie Portman, Teresa Palmer and Isabel Lucas) and struggles with his feelings toward his brother (Wes Bentley) and father (Brian Dennehy). At least one additional Malick film (Voyage of Time) will follow later this year.

poster . Midnight Special Trailers

Blu-ray and DVD Buy From Amazon

Writer-director Jeff Nichols (Take Shelter, Mud) described his fourth feature as a “sci-fi chase film” inspired by Close Encounters of the Third Kind, E.T., and Starman. Critics were impressed with this emotional and imaginative tale of a father (Michael Shannon) who hopes to uncover the truth behind his young son’s (Jaeden Lieberher) special powers as they flee religious extremists (led by Sam Shepard) and are pursued by the Federal Government (in the form of Adam Driver).

poster . The Wave Trailers

Blu-ray and DVD Buy From Amazon

This classic Hollywood disaster picture just happens to be Norwegian. The village of Geiranger, one of Norway’s major tourist draws, is constantly threatened by the possibility that nearby mountain Åkerneset could erode into the fjord and cause a tsunami. Geologist Kristian (Kristoffer Joner) has monitored the town’s warning centers for years, but on the day he plans to drive his family to their new life in the city, Kristian senses something isn't right. Director Roar Uthaug’s skill with the film’s suspenseful action scenes has earned (if that's the right term) him the job of rebooting the Tomb Raider franchise.

The latest from Thai writer-director Apichatpong "Joe" Weerasethakul already landed on some year-end top 10 lists (last year) thanks to an excellent debut at Cannes. This story of a housewife who volunteers to look after soldiers suffering from a a mysterious sleeping sickness also impressed critics when it belatedly reached American theaters in March.

Gavin Hood (Ender’s Game) directs Helen Mirren, Alan Rickman, Aaron Paul and Barkhad Abdi in this drone strike thriller that received a positive reception from critics last fall (at TIFF) and this spring (when it screened in theaters). The film follows Colonel Katherine Powell (Mirren) in London as she tries to get clearance for an American drone pilot (Paul) to fire on terrorists in Kenya.

While Kung Fu Panda 2 was less successful critically and financially (at least in U.S. box office) than Kung Fu Panda, it was still good enough for DreamWorks to greenlight a third film—a sound decision, given that KFP3 had little drop-off in either category. Jack Black returns to voice Po, who meets his father (voiced by Bryan Cranston) and travels to a panda paradise, where he must train his clumsy brethren to defend themselves against the supernatural villain Kai.

Icelandic director Grímur Hákonarson’s critically-acclaimed drama collected the top prize in the Un Certain Regard section of the Cannes Film Festival last May. This tale of aging, sheep-farming brothers (and rivals) Gummi and Kiddi is an eccentric work that offers a unique story and two excellent central performances.

One of spring's bigger disappointments was this comedic adaptation of Kim Barker's book Taliban Shuffle that stars Tina Fey as Barker while she was working as a reporter in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (Focus, Crazy Stupid Love) from a script by 30 Rock and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt writer Robert Carlock, the film also stars Margot Robbie, Martin Freeman, Billy Bob Thornton, Sheila Vand, and Alfred Molina.
