Thanksgiving (Horror, Mystery, Thriller)

Experience Eli Roth’s new horror classic at home, as “Thanksgiving” debuts on Blu-ray and DVD Tuesday, Jan. 30, from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The film is also now available to own on Digital.

After a Black Friday riot ends in tragedy, a mysterious Thanksgiving-inspired killer terrorizes Plymouth, Massachusetts — the birthplace of the holiday. Picking off residents one by one, what begins as random revenge killings are soon revealed to be part of a larger, sinister holiday plan. Will the town uncover the killer and survive the holidays…or become guests at his twisted holiday dinner table?

The DVD and Blu-ray releases of “Thanksgiving” include a commentary by director/writer Eli Roth (“Cabin Fever,” “Hostel”) and writer Jeff Rendell as well as the featurettes “Gore Galore” and “Behind the Screams.” The Blu-ray release adds to the extras exclusive outtakes, deleted and extended scenes and “Massachusetts Movies: Eli & Jeff’s Early Films.”

Wish (Animation, Adventure, Comedy)

A heartfelt celebration of the magic of Disney, and a joyful new entry to the studio’s animated film legacy, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Wish” is now available to own on Digital. The film also releases on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD Tuesday, March 12.

In the animated musical-comedy, Asha (Academy Award winner Ariana DeBose, “West Side Story”), a sharp-witted idealist in the kingdom of Rosas, makes a powerful wish that’s answered by Star, a ball of boundless energy. Soon, Asha and Star must face a formidable foe — the ruler of Rosas — to save her community and prove that when one brave human connects with the magic of the stars, wondrous things happen.

In addition to including a sing-along version of the movie, fans who purchase a Digital copy of “Wish” will be able to access several exciting extras, including outtakes, the “Once Upon a Studio” animated short, five deleted scenes with introductions by head of story Mark Kennedy (“Magnifico’s Secret,” “The Wishing Tree,” “To Rosas,” “Finding Flazino” and “Valentino is a Star”), the deleted song “A Wish Worth Making” and six song selections — “At All Costs,” “This Wish,” “I’m a Star,” “This is the Thanks I Get?!,” “Knowing What I Know Now” and “This Wish (Reprise)” — that let viewers jump to their favorite musical moments, with on-screen lyrics. Additionally, the release includes a nine-part inside look at the making of the film, “100 Years in the Making: The Story of ‘Wish,’” and a “Wish D-Classified” featurette that highlights some of the many references and nods “Wish” makes to other Disney films from the studio’s 100-year legacy. Bonus features may vary on physical formats.
