Looks like there are three new DVD and Blu-ray movies this week. New releases include Taken 3 (review | Liam Neeson), Cake (review | Jennifer Aniston, Sam Worthington, Anna Kendric), and Marine 4: Moving Target (giveaway | Mike “The Miz” Mizanin). I watched the first two Taken movies, so I’m going to watch the third one too. Cake also looks interesting and might be worth watching.

DVDs coming out the week of April 21, 2015
Taken 3 (review)
Liam Neeson returns as ex-covert operative Bryan Mills, whose reconciliation with his ex-wife is tragically cut short when she is brutally murdered. Consumed with rage, and framed for the crime, he goes on the run to evade the relentless pursuit of the CIA, FBI and the police. For one last time, Mills must use his “particular set of skills,” to track down the real killers, exact his unique brand of justice, and protect the only thing that matters to him now — his daughter.
Cake takes us into the darkly funny world of Claire Bennett (Jennifer Aniston) who initiates a dubious relationship with a widower (Sam Worthington) while confronting fantastical hallucinations of his dead wife (Anna Kendrick). With her feisty housekeeper-cum-caretaker (Adriana Barraza) ever at her side, Claire searches for human connection and self-forgiveness in this tale of personal redemption.
Marine 4: Moving Target (giveaway)
WWE Superstar Mike “The Miz” Mizanin is back as American hero Jake Carter in an all-new thrill-packed Marine adventure. Now in the private sector, Carter is assigned to protect a “high-value package” — a beautiful whistle blower trying to expose a corrupt military defense contractor. But a heavily armed team of mercenaries has been hired to kill her, along with anyone who gets in their way, and it’s going to take a fearless one-man fighting machine to stop them. Co-starring WWE Diva Summer Rae in her feature film debut, The Marine 4: Moving Target is locked and loaded with explosive action from start to finish.
