The Departed (Release date: April 23)

Director Martin Scorsese’s remake of Internal Affairs is a tightly constructed crime-thriller, one that’ll keep you guessing right to the very end. With an all-star cast including Leonardo DiCaprio, Jack Nicholson, and Matt Damon, this is a 4K remaster loaded with a variety of bonus features and deleted scenes.

Madame Web (Release date: April 30)

Sure, Madame Web is a bad movie, but at least it falls into the category of being so bad that it’s actually kind of good. Films like these are fun for when you need a laugh, and with plenty of cringey dialogue and baffling scenes thrown into the mix, you’ll be having a good chuckle. Besides, if you pride yourself on watching everything related to Marvel, you need to watch Madame Web (even though it was made by Sony). The steelbook case that comes with this limited-edition release looks pretty cool, too.

Ocean’s 11, 12, 13 (Release date: April 30)

Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’s trilogy is arguably one of the best heist series around, and at long last, they’ll be available on 4K Blu-ray for the first time ever. Ocean’s Eleven, Ocean’s Twelve and Ocean’s Thirteen all feature ensemble casts led by George Clooney and Brad Pitt, and you can expect to see how these capers came together with bonus featurettes on each disc.

Godzilla x Kong: the New Empire (Release Date: TBA)

If the Monsterverse is coming to an end, then it’s going out with a bang in Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire. A sequel to Godzilla vs. Kong, this new film pits the titans against gigantic new threats and goes all-out on its monster mash themes. If you’re looking to watch the entire saga in one sitting, you can pick up all the films in one collection and watch several hundred million dollars worth of pixels reduce humanity’s greatest cities to dust in their various tussles.

Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire (Release date: TBA)

If there’s something strange in your neighborhood, who ya gonna call? Things don’t get weirder than a New York summer season where you have to dress in layers, and with a global cooling catastrophe threatening to bring an endless winter to the Big Apple, it’ll be up to several generations of Ghostbusters to save the day. If you haven’t added this film or the previous movie, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, to your collection yet, you can pick up both of them in a special edition which comes with a limited-edition ice mold.

Star Trek III: Search for Spock 40th Anniversary (Release date: May 28)

Star Trek films are peak sci-fi, and if you have a threequel-shaped gap in your trekkie library, then you can fill it with this 40th anniversary release of Star Trek 3: The Search for Spock. This version updates the film with a 4K visual presentation and comes with a galaxy-class spaceship worth of special features to enjoy once you’re done watching the movie.

  • Preorder Star Trek III: Search for Spock 40th Anniversary Steelbook 4K Blu-ray on Amazon

The Crow (Now available)

A remake of The Crow is out later this year, but you can never go wrong with the first film based on the cult-classic film starring the late Brandon Lee. This 4K restoration of The Crow , released 30 years after the original movie, comes with several old and new special features, but the big draw here is the restoration process itself. Cinematographer Dariusz Wolski–who worked on the original movie as director of photography–supervised this Blu-ray release to help it retain the striking and moody visuals of the original movie.

Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths Parts 1 + 2 (Part 1 now available, Part 2 releases April 23)

Arguably the biggest DC Comics crossover event of all time, Crisis on Infinite Earths saw hundreds of heroes die, trillions of worlds erased, and entire realities bit the bullet by the time the story was over. This project consists of three parts, and after Part One released in January, Part Two is almost here. The first part was a mostly introspective look at the life of The Flash as the Crisis began to gather steam, and Part Two will see the Anti-Monitor’s plan for multiversal genocide kick off in horrific fashion. Both films are available as standard Blu-rays, or if you want to chip in a little bit extra, you can get 4K versions with fancy steelbook covers.

Aliens, The Abyss, and True Lies

James Cameron’s filmography might be smaller than you’d expect from a director who has been in the industry for so long, but few directors have had as much of an impact on cinemas as he has. Three of his excellent movies, action-packed spy-thriller True Lies, underwater sci-fi mystery The Abyss, and the atmospheric terror of Aliens–are now on 4K Blu-ray and have noticeably improved visuals. Each film comes with a slew of extras, making these the definitive versions of some of Cameron’s greatest hits.

Saw 10-Film Collection (Now available)

Across 10 films, the Saw franchise has left a gruesome bodycount and has used enough fake blood to fill an Olympic-sized swimming pool. If you’re looking to revisit the film and its gnarly deathtraps, the entire series is available in one convenient Blu-ray package. Rewind to the beginning, when John Kramer AKA Jigsaw first unleashed diabolically ingenious traps on the morally wayward and finish up with Saw X. A bucket is not included, in case you’re queasy.

The Running Man Steelbook (Now available)

A classic Stephen King novel (written under the pseudonym Richard Bachman) adapted into a fantastic, and admittedly cheesy in the best way, action movie, the Running Man is a must-watch for all fans of ’80s cinema and its poster child, Arnold Schwarzenegger. Set in a dark future where the masses are distracted from their dystopian nightmare by watching unwilling contestants fight to survive in a gladiatorial reality show, the movie still holds up pretty well today. While just about every film on this list has a good-looking steelbook, The Running Man’s 4K special edition arguably has the best of the lot with its amazing cover design.

Event Horizon Steelbook (Now available)

Space and horror, a perfect pairing that puts bacon and eggs to shame. While this isn’t the director’s cut of the film fans have been longing for–sadly, most of the cut content has been lost, according to director Paul Anderson–you’re still getting the original film in all its spooky glory, a creepy steelbook case, and an additional disc full of terrifying extras.

The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes (Now available)

In this prequel to The Hunger Games, a young Coriolanus Snow has to manage his instincts between good and evil as he mentors a young contender. Set decades before the original films, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes charts the rise of Snow in the years before he became the tyrannical President of Panem.
