Super 8
Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy ($44.99)

Director Steven Spielberg and director J.J. Abram's nostalgic, monster-mash homage to their own movie-obsessed childhoods, "Super 8" tells the story of a gaggle of '70s kids who accidentally capture something much more unnerving—and deadly—on their Super 8 film than the homegrown zombie movie they've set out to shoot. A fresh young cast fleshes out the story's sci-fi scares with a generous sprinkling of humor and a strong dose of heart, and generous bonus features include commentary and several featurettes, including a detailed look at the special effects behind the movie's spectacular, beast-unleashing train crash.
