Bones and All (Drama, Horror, Romance)

Luca Guadagnino’s Venice Film Festival Award-winning “Bones and All” debuts on Blu-ray Tuesday, Jan. 31, from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.

From Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and United Artists Releasing, “Bones and All” is a story of first love between Maren (Taylor Russell, “Lost in Space”), a young woman learning how to survive on the margins of society, and Lee (Timothée Chalamet, “Call me By Your Name”), an intense and disenfranchised drifter; a liberating road odyssey of two young people coming into their own, searching for identity and chasing beauty in a perilous world that cannot abide who they are.

Directed by Guadagnino from a screenplay by David Kajganich, the film is based on the novel of the same name by Camille DeAngelis. The movie also stars Mark Rylance (“Bridge of Spies”), André Holland (“Moonlight”), Michael Stuhlbarg (“The Shape of Water”), Jessica Harper (“Minority Report”) and Chloë Sevigny (“Boys Don’t Cry”). Special features on the Blu-ray release include the behind-the-scenes featurettes “A Look Inside,” “Meet Lee,” “Meet Maren,” “Outsiders in Love” and “Luca Guadagnino: The Vision of ‘Bones and All.’”

The Fabelmans (Drama)

Director Steven Spielberg shares a deeply personal portrait of a 20th century American childhood in the semi-autobiographical film “The Fabelmans,” now available to own on Digital from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Nominated for seven Academy Awards, the film also debuts on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD Feb. 14.

Rediscover the magic of movies in “The Fabelmans,” a coming-of-age story about a young man uncovering a shattering family secret and the power of film and imagination to help us see the truth about ourselves and each other. With a star-studded cast featuring Michelle Williams (“Manchester by the Sea,” “My Week with Marilyn”), Paul Dano (“The Batman,” “There Will Be Blood”), Seth Rogen (“Steve Jobs,” “Superbad”), Gabriel LaBelle (“The Predator,” “American Gigolo”) and Judd Hirsch (“Uncut Gems,” “Ordinary People”), “The Fabelmans” tells a timeless tale of heartbreak, healing and hope for the dreamer inside all of us.

“The Fabelmans” comes with exclusive bonus content that takes viewers behind the scenes as Spielberg reflects on how the movie was inspired by his own personal story and family in “‘The Fabelmans’: A Personal Journey.” The Blu-ray and Digital releases also include two featurettes that show how the filmmakers and the movie’s all-star cast brought Spielberg’s story to life. In “Family Dynamics,” viewers will discover how Williams, Dano, Rogen and other cast members built a bridge between their on-screen personalities and true-life counterparts, while in “Crafting the World of ‘The Fabelmans,’” viewers will learn how the filmmakers created movie magic while capturing the film’s unique look.

The Grandmaster of Kung Fu (Action)

Former World Wushu Champion Du Yuhang (a.k.a. Dennis To, “Ip Man”) stars in the action-packed martial arts extravaganza “The Grandmaster of Kung Fu,” debuting on Digital, Blu-ray and DVD Tuesday, Jan. 31, from Well Go USA Entertainment.
