Avail­able to down­load since May but only now ar­riv­ing on shiny disc, FaHreN­HeIt 451 (1 Oc­to­ber, DVD) – an HBO movie of Ray Brad­bury’s dystopian clas­sic – stars Black Pan­ther’s Michael B Jor­dan as fire­man Guy Mon­tag, who in this so­cial me­dia-satiris­ing update, torches servers as well as books. We said: “Slick and stylish, but can be a lit­tle corny… and it’s a strug­gle to buy into the no­tion that Guy is a man of height­ened sen­si­tiv­ity.” The ti­tle of IN­CI­deNt IN a GHOSt­laNd (out now, Blu-ray/DVD) sug­gests su­per­nat­u­ral go­ings-on, but Mar­tyrs di­rec­tor Pas­cal Laugier’s lat­est is ac­tu­ally a home-in­va­sion hor­ror, al­beit one which plays with what’s re­al­ity and what’s fan­tasy to dis­ori­en­tat­ing ef­fect. Cen­tring on two teenage sis­ters who are bru­tally tor­tured, it’s one for those who de­rive sat­is­fac­tion from get­ting through an en­durance test. Reel­time Pic­tures’ lat­est col­lec­tion of their long-run­ning Myth Mak­ers se­ries, blaKe’S SeVeN (out now, DVD), brings to­gether in­ter­views with six key cast mem­bers of the ‘70s show, plus ef­fects man Mat Irvine. Most were shot be­tween 2000 and 2005, many at lo­ca­tions used in the se­ries. Fi­nally, a quick run­down of the lat­est slew of TV box sets. Out now: Ar­row Sea­son Six, Colony Sea­son Two, The Good Place Sea­son One, Gotham Sea­son Four and Lu­cifer Sea­son Three. Su­per­girl Sea­son Three fol­lows on 17 Septem­ber. Ar­riv­ing on 24 Septem­ber: The Flash Sea­son Four, Leg­ends Of To­mor­row Sea­son Three, Lucky Man Sea­son Three and The Walk­ing Dead Sea­son Eight. Phew!
