What's new on Blu-ray and DVD this month? (February 2017)

A new month brings a wealth of new Blu-ray and DVD releases, so now's a great time to prepare and see what we have ahead of us in the month of February! You can always head to our BLU-RAY AND DVD RELEASE DATES section for a more complete list, but in this column we'll go over some of the more popular titles hitting shelves over the next 4 weeks!

February 7

We kick off February with Jeff Nichols' (MIDNIGHT SPECIAL, MUD) latest film, LOVING, starring Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga. Also worth looking into is Ewan McGregor's directorial debut, AMERICAN PASTORAL. If you're looking to a get a comic book fix, DC's latest animated venture, JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK, hits this week. Regardless of which you chose, you can follow it up nicely with the 30th Anniversary Edition of DIRTY DANCING, which nowadays is just called, "dancing."

February 14

Ang Lee's experimental wartime drama, BILLY LYNN'S LONG HALFTIME WALK arrives this week, and it's worth noting that you'll need the 4K edition to check that puppy out in 60 frames per second (as intended). There's also the coming of age drama, THE EDGE OF SEVENTEEN, that garnered some decent buzz thanks to the combined efforts of Hailee Steinfeld and Woody Harrelson. You can get your nostalgia on with some classic fantasy in the form of ONE MILLION YEARS B.C. and IT CAME FROM OUTER SPACE.

February 21

Welcome to what's arguably the month's most exciting release week! Feb. 21st boasts the releases of 3 of the best films from 2016; HACKSAW RIDGE, MANCHESTER BY THE SEA and NOCTURNAL ANIMALS. All 3 are great for their own reasons, and depending on your taste in film, you'd be hard-pressed to go wrong with any of them. On the other hand, there's BAD SANTA 2 if you just want to punish yourself.

February 28

February ends with a bang with Marvel's latest, DOCTOR STRANGE. You can get it in 3D or in a standard Blu-ray, but both are jam-packed with special features. Not to be overlooked is Robert Zemeckis' war-thriller, ALLIED. If you're in the mood for the greatest love story ever captured on film, Richard Linklater's Before trilogy (BEFORE SUNRISE, BEFORE SUNSET, BEFORE MIDNIGHT) is being released in a spiffy Criterion box set!. Those are just some of this month's biggest titles, but you can check out a more complete selection by hitting the link below. Let us know what you plan to pick on Blu-ray/DVD in the comments!
