Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2
The final Harry Potter installment was a riveting, righteous way to close out the iconic series. The epic conclusion will not disappoint — in fact, it will inspire, which is why it ruled this year’s People’s Choice noms. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 hit DVD/Blu-ray on Friday, Nov. 11, which means you can also pick up the full collection as an early holiday gift. It is also available for rental via Amazon, Blockbuster and some On Demand cable systems, but doesn’t arrive at Redbox, Netflix and Blockbuster Express until Dec. 6.
The Change Up
Real life pals Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds team up for this gross, funny and heartwarming take on the classic body swap tale. In this R-rated raunch-com, an irresponsible bachelor (Reynolds) and a successful family man (Bateman) share one drunken night, and then accidentally switch bodies. Isn’t that always the way? The Change Up is available via Amazon, Blockbuster and some On Demand systems, but doesn’t arrive at Redbox, Netflix and Blockbuster Express until Dec. 6.
This thriller starring Jason Statham, Alexander Skarsgard, Mickey Rourke and 50 Cent is about a naive young man who assumes a dead man’s identity and quickly becomes embroiled in an underground world of power, violence and chance, where men gamble on the lives of other men. 13 is available for rental just about everywhere. (Not to be confused with Thirteen, the 2003 coming of age tale starring Evan Rachel Wood and Holly Hunter.)
Life in a Day
Created entirely from footage uploaded by YouTube users all over the world, this documentary serves as a time capsule to show future generations what it was like to be alive on the July 24, 2010. Life in a Day is available via Amazon, Blockbuster and some On Demand systems, but hasn’t yet arrived at Redbox, Netflix and Blockbuster Express.
Horrible Bosses, Green Lantern and more hit expanded release
SheKnows gave you the scoop on the DVD/Blu-ray releases of Green Lantern, Horrible Bosses, The Tree of Life, Terri and Judy Moody and the NOT Bummer Summer back in October. Now, they have hit expanded release along with Wiggles: It’s Always Christmas With You, which means they’re available for rental just about anywhere.
At the Box Office
If you’re looking for a movie night out, SheKnows also has the scoop on this weekend’s hot big screen releases, J. Edgar, Jack and Jill and Immortals. Can one of these films take down last weekend’s top three movies — Puss in Boots, Tower Heist and A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas?
