For the new home video releases of Feb. 16, the most notable exclusive was another Best Buy Steelbook edition.
This week it’s the first season of HBO’s “Lovecraft Country” from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. The $32.99 Steelbook includes all 10 episodes on three Blu-ray discs.
Based on the 2016 novel of the same name by Matt Ruff, the supernatural drama series follows Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors) as he joins up with his friend Leti (Jurnee Smollett) and his Uncle George (Courtney B. Vance) to embark on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America in search of his missing father, Montrose Freeman (Michael Kenneth Williams). This begins a struggle to survive and overcome both the racist terrors of white America and the terrifying monsters described in an H.P. Lovecraft paperback.
Walmart stocked an exclusive $19.96 Stephen King 6-Film Collection DVD, from Sony Pictures, containing the movies Apt Pupil, Bag of Bones, Christine, The Dark Tower, Secret Widow and Stand By Me.
