A failure at the box office looks to recoup its losses on DVD in this week’s FOXLight.  Taylor Kitsch is the title character in Disney’s John Carter, which took years and hundreds of millions of dollars to bring to the big screen.  Unfortunately, the story of the war Captain shipped to Mars to help fight a civil war landed with a THX-approved thud…

Ryan Reynolds and Denzel Washington are, respectively, good and possibly evil CIA ops on the run from South African mercenaries in Safe House.  Together they must decide if their attackers might have come from within…

Dwayne Johnson takes over for Brendan Fraser in Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, setting off with stepson Josh Hutcherson to track down the lone inhabitant of a remote island…

Real Navy SEALs star as fictional ones in a story based on true events, lending credibility and authenticity to Act of Valor.  We get to follow the SEALs as they’re sent across the world to defuse terror plots before they make it to these shores…

Gerard Butler is Sam Childers, the real-life former criminal who transforms and becomes the savior to thousands of kidnapped and orphaned East African children in Machine Gun Preacher, also starring Michelle Monaghan and Kathy Baker.
