Voyagers“[In Voyagers], with the future of the human race at stake, a group of young men and women, bred for intelligence and obedience, embark on an expedition to colonize a distant planet. But when they uncover disturbing secrets about the mission, they defy their training and begin to explore their most primitive natures. As life on the ship descends into chaos, they’re consumed by fear, lust, and the insatiable hunger for power.” — from Lionsgate

After a rocky path to theatrical release (originally scheduled for November 2020 and bumped to this April due to the pandemic), Voyagers will be out on June 15th on 4K UHD / Blu-ray combo packs and on DVD. The sets include four featurettes (“Born for This: The Cast of Voyagers”, “Against Type: Unlearning Human Nature”, “Survival of the Fittest: The Physicality of Voyagers”, “On the Surface: The Visual Style of Voyagers”, and “Hidden Chambers: Tour the Humanitas”) by way of bonus content. You can pre-order the 4K and Blu-ray sets or the DVD on Amazon for $30.99, $21.99, and $22.99, respectively.

Lara Croft Tomb Raider“Exploring lost empires, finding priceless treasures, punishing villains in mortal combat… it’s all in a day’s work for adventurer Lara Croft. But a secret from her father’s past is about to lead Lara to her greatest challenge: a legendary artifact with the power to alter space and time.” — from Paramount (Lara Croft: Tomb Raider)

“Lara Croft is back in action and faces her most perilous mission: to recover what ancient civilization believed to be the essence of all evil, Pandora’s Box. She must travel the globe, from Greece to Hong Kong to Kenya and beyond to get to the box before it’s found by a maniacal scientist whose plan is to use it for mass annihilation.” — from Paramount (Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life)

Out now are two releases for Lara Croft fans — a blu-ray of the original film to celebrate the 20th anniversary of its 2001 release and a 2-film combo pack with the original and sequel movies. The 20th anniversary Blu-ray is not only a remastered presentation of the film, but also features nearly 90 minutes of extras, including commentary from director Simon West, featurettes on the film’s visual effects, story, stunts, etc., deleted scenes, a music video of U2’s “Elevation”, and more. (It’s important to note that the extras on this release are all previously released bonus content, so take that into account when considering purchase).

Tomb Raider 2 movie collectionThe 2-film combo pack is decidedly lighter extras-wise, with only commentary from each film’s director on offer. It’s good to note that there are previous releases of each film on 4K out there as combo packs which include more features on the Blu-ray that comes with those sets, but going that route would be about double the cost of the current 4K combo set which essentially just has the films themselves (so before purchasing either way, decide how important extras are to you). Fans can grab the 20th anniversary Blu-ray on Amazon for $14.99 and the 4K 2-movie collection for $25.99.

MacGyver Season 4“In this action-packed fourth season [of MacGyver], ex-MI6 agent Russ Taylor recruits former Phoenix Foundation members Mac, Riley, Bozer, Matty, and Desi to hunt down a bioweapon that’s planned to be used by a mysterious organization for a devastating attack on a major U.S. city.” — from CBS

Out now on DVD, MacGyver: Season Four includes the thirteen episodes that made it to production, which (as with many other shows) was halted due to the pandemic. (The season was originally slated to have twenty-two episodes, some of which have reportedly shifted to Season Five). No bonus features are included on this one (a shame since the show has so much action that they could draw from for featurettes), but this might at least in part be due to the fact that it’s basically a half-season… maybe Season Five will knock it out of the park with extras(?) For those who want to make sure they can get these episodes on the shelf, the Season Four DVD is available on Amazon for $22.20.

Indiana Jones 4 Movie 4K“Spanning the globe on death-defying archaeological endeavors, if adventure has a name, it’s Indiana Jones.” — from Paramount

In celebration of the 40th anniversary of the release of Raiders of the Lost Ark, all four Indiana Jones films are now out for the first time together in 4K Ultra HD with Dolby Vision and HDR-10 for ultra-vivid picture quality and state-of-the-art Dolby Atmos audio. Each film has been remastered from 4K scans of the original negatives and all picture work was approved by director Steven Spielberg.

Bonus features for the set include seven hours of bonus content, including a 1981 documentary about Raiders, making-of featurettes for all four films, behind-the-scenes looks at the stunts, music, special effects, characters, etc., and more. The set also includes a collectible booklet with behind-the-scenes images from all four films. It’s important to note that all of these bonus features appeared on previous releases of the films, so take that as you will. If you’ve been waiting for an Indiana Jones set that combines optimal video and audio quality with a healthy list of extras, though, there’s a good chance this is the set for you — if so, you can grab the Indiana Jones: 4-Movie Collection in 4K now on Amazon for $69.95.

Your Honor DVD“The limited series legal thriller Your Honor stars 2021 Golden Globe Nominee Bryan Cranston as Michael Desiato, a respected New Orleans judge whose teenage son, Adam (Hunter Doohan), is involved in a hit-and-run that leads to a high-stakes game of lies, deceit and impossible choices. SAG Award winner Michael Stuhlbarg (Call Me By Your Name) stars as Jimmy Baxter, the much-feared head of a crime family opposite Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Hope Davis (For the People) as his wife, Gina, who might be even more dangerous than her husband. The series also stars Carmen Ejogo (Selma), Isiah Whitlock Jr. (The Wire), and Sofia Black-D’Elia (The Night Of ). Emmy nominee and Golden Globe winner Maura Tierney of The Affair guest stars as Fiona McKee, a fearless prosecutor trying a major case in Desiato’s courtroom.” — from CBS

Your Honor will be out on June 15th on DVD, which includes all ten episodes of the limited series. Special features on the DVD are limited to deleted scenes (which is rather disappointing considering how awesome it would have been to have commentary or at least a little featurette with Bryan Cranston), but there you have it. If you’ve been waiting to get your hands on a hard copy you can pre-order yours on Amazon for $22.99.
