Alex Gibney’s “Zero Days” arrives on DVD Tuesday Jan. 17. The documentary thriller delves into the type of warfare in a world without rules—cyber war. Gibney explores Stuxnet, self-replicating computer malware (known as a “worm” for its ability to burrow from computer to computer on its own) that the U.S. and Israel unleashed to destroy a key part of an Iranian nuclear facility, and which ultimately spread beyond its intended target. It’s the most comprehensive accounting to date of how a clandestine mission hatched by two allies with clashing agendas opened forever the Pandora’s Box of cyber warfare.

This timely film serves as a cautionary tale of technology, power, unintended consequences, morality and the dangers of secrecy. The DVD includes an interview with the director as well as the theatrical trailer.

Angie Harmon (“Law & Order”) and Sasha Alexander (“NCIS”) reprise their roles as the title characters in the seventh and final series of the TNT police dramedy “Rizzoli & Isles.” The often at-odds duo solve some of Boston’s most complex cases on this final season, available Tuesday Jan. 17 on DVD, from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. “Rizzoli & Isles: The Complete Seventh & Final Season” features all 13 episodes from the series’ last season, plus a gag reel comprised of material from all seven seasons of the cable series.  “Rizzoli & Isles: The Complete Seventh & Final Season” will retail for a suggested retail price (SRP) of $29.98 SRP. All seven seasons will be available the same day in a box set and will retail for $169.99 SRP.

Based on Tess Gerritsen’s best-selling crime thriller books, “Rizzoli & Isles” focuses on tough-as-nails Boston police detective Jane Rizzoli (Harmon), who has an uncompromisingly brash and beautiful bull-in-a-china-shop approach to both cases and life, and the brilliant medical examiner from a privileged background, Dr. Maura Isles (Alexander), who may be the best-dressed science nerd in New England. Together, they are close friends and complete opposites who solve some of Boston’s most notorious crimes. For Jane and Maura, the final season of “Rizzoli & Isles,” is the most thrilling and dangerous one yet. The first episode picks up right where season six left off, during the aftermath of the shooting at Korsak’s wedding reception. The team must use every tool at their disposal to find the elusive Alice Sands, whom they’ve been trying to hunt down and bring to justice before she destroys Jane’s life. Season seven also brings some of the most challenging mysteries to date, as well as the return of friends and family members.  Wills are tested, love blossoms and everyone looks ahead into the future as their lives move forward.

Fans of the series also can now own all seven seasons of “Rizzoli & Isles” in a complete set. “Rizzoli & Isles: The Complete Series” is a comprehensive DVD box set that features every episode from every season of the popular series. It is available for $169.99 SRP. In addition to Harmon and Alexander, the series stars Jordan Bridges (“Mona Lisa Smile”) as Frankie Rizzoli Jr., Jane’s younger brother who is now following in her footsteps as a detective; with Bruce McGill (“Law Abiding Citizen”) as the seasoned and lovable Detective Vince Korsak, Rizzoli’s former partner; and Lorraine Bracco (“The Sopranos”) as Jane’s nosy but warm-hearted mother, Angela Rizzoli, who moved into Maura’s guesthouse after her recent divorce and works at the coffee shop inside the Boston Police Department.  Idara Victor (“Turn: Washington’s Spies”) stars as crime scene analyst Nina Holiday. Adam Sinclair (“24: Live Another Day”) who stars as Kent Drake, the quirky assistant medical examiner in Maura’s office, becomes a series regular.

Aaron Paul (“Breaking Bad”) gets caught in the dangerous criminal underworld as he searches for his missing girlfriend in the gritty crime thriller “Come and Find Me,” arriving on Blu-ray (plus Digital HD), DVD and Digital HD Tuesday Jan. 17 from Lionsgate. The crime drama is currently available On Demand.
