Another slow week on the Blu-ray and DVD front. New Blu-ray and DVD movies include Runner Runner (Justin Timberlake, Ben Affleck) and Closed Circuit (Eric Bana, Rebecca Hall). I have not seen either films yet, but they do look interesting. BTW, I’m giving away Runner Runner Blu-ray combo pack on my movie blog soon. Read on for a summary of the new DVD releases.
Blu-ray and DVD movie coming out the week of January 7, 2014
- Runner Runner (giveaway coming soon)
Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck star in this high-stakes crime thriller where the lure of easy money is the riskiest bet of all. When Princeton grad student Richie Furst (Timberlake) believes he’s been swindled by an online poker site, he heads to Costa Rica to confront gambling tycoon Ivan Block (Affleck), the man he thinks is responsible. But Richie will soon face the ultimate power play as he finds himself caught between Block’s promises of unlimited wealth and the zealous FBI agent (Anthony Mackie) trying to bring him down.
- Closed Circuit
From the producers of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy comes a riveting and suspenseful mystery starring Eric Bana and Rebecca Hall. A high-profile terrorism case unexpectedly brings two exceptional lawyers (Bana and Hall) with a romantic past together on the defense team. They soon realize they’ve stepped into a dangerous web of cover-ups and lies, and their knowledge of the government’s top-secret classified evidence has put their reputations and lives at stake. The film co-stars Ciar n Hinds, Julia Stiles and Jim Broadbent.
