FINALLY, AN EXTRA
HOUR OF HOT NEW DVDs
Pick ’em online, gram ’em at Redbox
This week kicks off with a movie whose name you heard plenty around, oh say, Oscar Night. (Which will happen when youâ€™re up for 5 of them.) Blood DiamondÂ— with critically acclaimed performances by Leonard DiCaprio, Djimon Hounsou and Jennifer ConnellyÂ— goes inside the African diamond trade where farmers and businessmen fight over precious rocks. Youâ€™ll surely think twice about the bling.
Also new this week, enjoy all the flying and the fantasy of Eragon. Itâ€™s the story of a young man who, after finding a dragonâ€™s egg, goes on a journey that leads him to discover his hidden power to protect his home from an evil king. (Brave kid. Redbox usually just leaves the dragonâ€™s egg alone.) Ed Speleers, Jeremy Irons and Robert Carlyle star.
An icon returns! Sylvester Stallone enters the ring one last time (or so heâ€™d have you believe) in Rocky Balboa. The Italian Stallion comes out of retirement to fight the reigning heavyweight champion, taking his son (Milo Ventimiglia) and favorite cousin (Burt Young) on one emotional ride. The Rocky movies always inspire redbox to hit the gym. Luckily, theyâ€™re only every 15 years.
Nativity Story follows the journey of Mary and Joseph from Bethlehem, leading up to the very first Christmas. Keisha Castle-Hughes and Oscar Isaac star as the holy couple. This tale of the birth of Christ is most often told around the holidays, but redbox thinks itâ€™ll hold up year-round.
Just in time for baseball season, Everyoneâ€™s Hero rounds out this weekâ€™s new releases. Itâ€™s the animated story of a boy who travels across the country to help Babe Ruth and the New York Yankees win the World Series. Inspired by the movieâ€™s original producer, Christopher Reeve, an unmatched cast lent their voices. William H. Macy, Rob Reiner, Raven-Symone, Richard Kind, Robert Wagner and Forest Whitaker are just a few.
Donâ€™t forget about one of last weekâ€™s huge redbox releases: Casino Royale, starring Daniel Craig as the latest 007. Showing an edgier side than fans are used to, Bond tries to prevent a terrorist (Mads Mikkelson) from winning a high stakes poker game in Montenegro.
