Her father senselessly gunned down by notorious outlaw Tom Chaney (Josh Brolin), 14-year-old Mattie Ross (Hailee Steinfeld) seeks out trigger-happy U.S. marshal Rueben J. “Rooster” Cogburn (Jeff Bridges) to follow Chaney into hostile territory and ensure that justice is served. Though initially rejected by the marshal when she states that she will be joining the hunt for her father’s killer, the headstrong Mattie proves she has the makings of a true trail-hand when she purchases a horse and stubbornly follows Rooster and Texas ranger LaBoeuf (Matt Damon) along for the ride. But the closer the trio gets to their target, the more treacherous the journey becomes.
The Coen Brothers stick closely to the source material by going back to the Charles Portis novel for inspiration, rather than the 1969 feature adaptation starring Western icon John Wayne. Enlisting Carter Burwell to compose a score that recalls the golden era of the once-proud genre, and paying close attention to every detail, the critically lauded duo offer up what may be the most satisfying traditional Western since the genre was muddled by spaghetti and revisionism in the late ’50s. Josh Brolin and Barry Pepper co-star.

One of Konami’s flagship titles makes its return to consoles in this more cinematic addition to the long-running Castlevania series.
Castlevania has enjoyed a varied lifetime in gaming since first arriving on consoles in the mid-80s. In recent years the series has stayed true to its side-scrolling roots with handheld releases, but Castlevania – Lords of Shadow moves the action into the 3D realm with a more epic storyline and cinematic feel. When Earth’s alliance with the heavens is shattered by the Lords of Shadow, darkness drapes the world and the souls of the dead are free to roam at will. As a member of Brotherhood of Light, players must travel the world as Gabriel and lay waste to the undead threat.
The painstaking platforming and puzzles Castlevania is known for remain intact, but Lords of Shadow places greater emphasis on action and storytelling, giving players access to a range of fast-paced moves more in line with God of War or Devil May Cry. Lord of Shadow’s more cinematic style has been overseen by cut scene king and creator of Metal Gear Solid, Hideo Kojima.
Castlevania – Lords of Shadow adds a much-needed sense of cinematic style back into the beloved Konami series, creating more action-heavy gameplay for its new console debut.

One of the most magical, intensely spectacular epic adventures in film history comes alive with these extended editions of The Lord of the Rings trilogy on Blu-ray boasting unsurpassed high definition picture and sound. Sound + Vision magazine ranked the 2010 release in their top five Blu-rays of the Year noting that it was one of only two releases to earn five stars for sound and calling it “breathtaking.” Now see and hear the extended trilogy at home the way it was meant to be seen, on Blu-ray Hi-Def.
Based on the length of each extended edition feature film and in order to present each film in the highest possible picture quality, each film is presented on two Blu-ray discs.
The set boasts more than 26 hours of additional content, highlighted by the rare behind-the-scenes documentaries created by Costa Botes, the filmmaker given unprecedented access to the set of each production by Peter Jackson. Costa Botes was able to capture raw and riveting behind-the-scenes film footage. His unique approach to storytelling–allowing the footage to speak for itself–results in an intimate and candid backstage pass to the challenges, preparations and camaraderie that went into shooting the timeless trilogy.
The feature-length documentaries, with more than four and a half hours of footage, focus on a number of complexities and circumstances that tested the filmmakers, cast and crew during the shoot, as well as a look at some of the comical antics and personal moments on the set. The Costa Botes documentaries accompany acclaimed special features by Michael Pellerin from the original extended cut releases to make this the most comprehensive The Lord of the Rings compilation ever.
The Lord of the Rings Trilogy – The Extended Edition includes a new transfer of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, which was remastered from the original 2k digital files, and it all comes in multi-disc elite packaging inside a premium rigid slipcase.
