Now Available to Own Draft Day, Person of Interest, The Sims 4, and More

Prepare your bank accounts, it’s time to see what’s Now Available to Own for the week of September 2, 2014.

On shelves this week, you can find titles such as Draft Day, Person of Interest, New Girl, The Sims 4, and more. Check out the complete list of new releases after the jump.

Movies on Blu-Ray

Draft Day (Ivan Reitman) At the NFL Draft, general manager Sonny Weaver has the opportunity to rebuild his team when he trades for the number one pick. He must decide what he’s willing to sacrifice on a life-changing day for a few hundred young men with NFL dreams. Starring Kevin Costner, Chadwick Boseman, Jennifer Garner, and Frank Langella

Didn’t catch this one in theaters, but I heard it was pretty underrated. I would give this a rent, especially with football season going on. Special features included are:

  • On the Clock: The Making of Draft Day
  • Welcome to Primetime
  • Audio Commentary with Writers Rajiv Joseph and Scott Rothman
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Theatrical Trailer

Moms’ Night Out (Andrew Erwin and Jon Erwin) All Allyson and her friends want is a peaceful, grown-up evening of dinner and fun – a long-needed moms’ night out. But in order to enjoy high heels, adult conversation, and food not served in a bag, they need their husbands to watch the kids for a few hours … what could go wrong? Starring Sarah Drew, Sean Astin, Patricia Heaton, and Trace Adkins

I wouldn’t touch this with a 39 and a half foot pole. Special features included are:

  • Bloopers
  • Deleted scenes
  • The heart of Moms’ Night Out
  • Casting Moms’ Night Out
  • The art of improv
  • The art of action
  • Filmmakers’ commentary

They Came Together (David Wain) When Joel and Molly meet, it’s hate at first sight: his big Corporate Candy Company threatens to shut down her quirky indie shop. Plus, Joel is hung up on his sexy ex. But amazingly, they fall in love, until they break up about two thirds of the way through, and Molly starts dating her accountant. But then right at the end…well you’ll just have to see. (Hint: Joel makes a big speech and they get back together.) Starring Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Bill Hader, and Cobie Smulders

This looks witty, but almost too witty to the point that it’s trying to hard. I’d wait for this one to come on Netflix. Special features includes:

  • Audio Commentary with Director and Co-Writer David Wain and Producer and Co-Writer Michael Showalter
  • They All Came Together Featurette
  • San Francisco Sketchfest Table Read
  • Theatrical Trailer
  • Deleted Scenes

Cabin Fever: Patient Zero (Kaare Andrews) When a group of friends enjoying a bachelor cruise in the Caribbean stumble upon a research facility on a remote island, a deadly virus is unleashed. The group must find a way to survive before the flesh eating virus consumes them all. Starring Sean Astin, Currie Graham, and Ryan Donowho

I rather enjoy the first Cabin Fever, but I hated the second one. I would be interested to see how they try to tell the origin story of the virus. I would give this a watch on Netflix if it comes available. There are no special features on this disc.
