From The Theater To Your Own Couch

There's one movie out on video today that everyone will be ordering, and one that, well, maybe the stars of the film will.

  • Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the tale of how the Rebel Alliance got the plans for the Death Star that Luke Skywalker destroyed in A New Hope. Felicity Jones is Jyn Erso, a drifter who actually has strong family ties to the rebels and who becomes the leader of a ragtag group plotting to obtain the plans. Diego Luna is Cassian Andor, a rebel spy who partners with her. The film ends with the plans being handed to a CGI Princess Leia.
  • The R-rated comedy Office Christmas Party stars Jason Bateman, TJ Miller, Jennifer Aniston and Olivia Munn. The plan is to throw a rager to impress a client and save an office branch from being shuttered.

TV that's new to video includes the fifth season of the classic Diff'rent Strokes, season 18 of Silent Witness and season five of the English DCI Banks.
