New to Disc:

Paramount:

Collateral (2004) Michael Mann’s Oscar nominated action film gets a nice 4K upgrade with this release, which also imports all of the extras from previous editions. Jamie Foxx is a cab driver taken hostage by a hit man (Tom Cruise) with a big to-do list in the very satisfying film.

Yellowstone Season 3 (2020) Kevin Costner returns in the third season following the life and times of a family of ranchers. In this season the family is threatened by a Wall Street takeover. The set contains over four hours of extras, which include multiple featurettes.

The Godfather Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone (1990/2020) The third, and hotly debated, final film in the Godfather series has been reedited by its director, Francis Ford Coppola. No new footage has been added and the only difference is that some scenes have been shortened or appear in different places in the film giving the film a running time ten minutes shorter than its previous incarnation. The only extra is a director intro.
