June 2023 brings with it the most anticipated Blu-ray release of the year: Avatar: The Way of Water in both standard Blu-ray and 4K UHD. The release includes over a dozen featurettes and screen tests for actors cast as the Na’vi. We’re also excited to see the behind-the-scenes short dedicated to the creation of the film’s digital water. Interestingly, 20th Century is also releasing a rare 3D Blu-ray edition of the film for fans who still own a 3D TV.
But don’t let the excitement of James Cameron’s blockbuster stop you from also enjoying a parade of weird and overlooked gems from the past 30 years. From peak Tom Cruise doing handsprings on public streets to a cult classic once maligned but now adored, there’s a lot to look forward to.
