Get over here and check out some of the Blu-rays that are set to hit shelves this week!

This week features two action-heavy standouts with Mortal Kombat and Guy Ritchie's Wrath of Man starring Jason Statham. Despite arriving alongside a series of mixed reviews, Simon McQuoid's Mortal Kombat reboot is undoubtedly one of the biggest films of 2021. Starring a stellar and diverse cast of modern-day martial arts masters, Mortal Kombat reimagines the classic video game franchise for a new generation, fatalities and all! While some fans still prefer Paul W.S. Anderson's 1995 classic, the new version offers some interesting changes that could set the property up for many sequels and even a spin-off or two.

Guy Ritchie's Wath of Man also hits Blu-ray this week. The plot follows H (Jason Statham), a cold and mysterious character working at a cash truck company responsible for moving hundreds of millions of dollars around Los Angeles each week. After his life gets turned upside down, H goes on a rampage for revenge against those who wronged him. It's a classic formula for action, but with Ritchie at the helm. What could go wrong?

Other notable releases include The Spongebob Movie: Sponge on the Run, Pennyworth: Season 2, Conor Allyn's No Man's Land, as well as the Criterion Collection releases of Bill Duke's Deep Cover, and Lizzie Borden's Working Girls.
