Marvel Comics' web-slinging, wall-crawling superhero swings into action in an all-new big screen adventure. Andrew Garfield stars as teenage social outcast Peter Parker, who spends his days trying to unravel the mystery of his own past and win the heart of his classmate crush, Gwen Stacy. A mysterious briefcase leads Peter to his father's former research partner, Dr. Curt Connors, and a secret that will ultimately shape his destiny -- becoming Spider-Man. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors' alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter must make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.

Hollywood Noir

Sunset Boulevard Box Art

Sunset Boulevard

"All right, Mr. DeMille... I'm ready for my close-up." Director Billy Wilder's 1950 cinematic masterpiece, newly restored for the first time in high definition, celebrates its Blu-ray debut as part of Paramount Pictures' centennial celebration. Gloria Swanson stars as aging silent film queen Norma Desmond, and William Holden as the down-on-his-luck young screenwriter who is held in thrall by her madness. Nominated for eleven Academy Awards, including Best Picture, the bizarre, tragic tale is a definitive statement on the dark and desperate side of Hollywood.

See Gloria Swanson and William Holden in bonus feature clips from 'Sunset Boulevard,' available for the first time on Blu-ray:

Blu-ray Special Features:

  • Audio Commentary
  • Sunset Boulevard: The Beginning
  • Sunset Boulevard: A Look Back

Your Sister's Sister Box Art

Your Sister's Sister

A year after his brother's death, Jack is still emotionally fragile. When he makes a scene at a memorial party, his best friend Iris intervenes and gets him to spend a week of solitude at her family's country cabin. The problem is, Iris' sister Hannah arrives at the cabin with the same idea, nursing a broken heart and a bottle of tequila. After throwing back a few drinks, these two end up getting to know each other a little more intimately. Things only get more muddled when Iris suddenly shows up the next morning, laying the groundwork for a more emotionally complicated few days than anyone had planned, but perhaps they all needed.

See Emily Blunt, Rosemarie DeWitt and Mark Duplass in the theatrical trailer for 'Your Sister's Sister' available on Blu-ray, DVD, On Demand and Digital Download:
