Two big releases are coming to the home box-office over the next few weeks. FOX will release ‘Independence Day: Resurgence’ in October, and The Huntsman: Winter’s War will release later this week. Both new releases will be available in Blu-Ray, 4K and VOD, as well as older formats like DVD.

Independence Day Resurgence took place twenty-years after the original events. Using recovered alien technology, the nations of Earth developed a vast defense program to protect the planet, and with the aliens returning, they will have to put it to the test. Jeff Goldblum returned to the series to play scientist David Levinson.

But nothing could prepare us for a new invasion of unprecedented scale—and only the ingenuity of a few brave men and women can save our world from extinction. Co-starring Liam Hemsworth and Jesse T. Usher alongside returning fan favorites Bill Pullman and Brent Spiner, the film will be available on October 18, 2016. The special features include eight deleted scenes, and a featurette on “The War of 1996″. You can watch the film early if you choose the Digital HD version, that will release on September 27, 2016.

Along with the deleted scenes there is also a gag reel, special commentary, a making-of documentary,the morning show parody “It’s Early, ABQ” featuring Jeff Goldblum, Judd Hirsch and Liam Hemsworth, audio commentary by Roland Emmerich and special trailers, tv spots and concept art. You can checkout the many editions of the film on authorized retailers like Amazon.com.

The prequel to Snow White, called The Huntsman: Winter’s War, will also release on Digital HD and 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand this month. The film will be available starting on August 23, 2016.

The fantasy-epic is from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, and The Huntsman: Winter’s War on Blu-ray and DVD includes an all-new extended edition of the epic action-adventure, plus exclusive bonus features that reveal the movie’s behind-the-scenes secrets.

The Huntsman: Winter’s War stars Charlize Theron (Mad Max: Fury Road, Monster) as the evil Queen Ravenna, who betrays her good sister Freya (Emily Blunt: Sicario, Edge of Tomorrow) with an unforgivable act, freezing Freya’s heart to love and unleashing in her an icy power she never knew she possessed. Retreating to a kingdom far to the north, Freya raises an army of Huntsmen as her protectors, with the only rule that no two of them should ever fall in love. As a war for domination escalates between the two queens, the hero standing between good and evil is Freya’s most elite Huntsman, Eric (Chris Hemsworth: Thor, Star Trek Into Darkness). Alongside fellow warrior Sara (Jessica Chastain: The Martian, The Help) – the only woman who has ever captured his heart – Eric must help Freya vanquish her sister or Ravenna’s wickedness will rule for eternity.
