Need for Speed, Californication

New DVD/VOD releases Tuesday, Aug. 5


Need for Speed (DreamWorks)
  • Need for Speed (DreamWorks)

Need for Speed
Mechanic/street racer Tobey (Aaron Paul) is out of jail and out for revenge against the bastard who framed him for street-race manslaughter (Dominic Cooper), and this score can only be settled with ... a street race! Lesson ... learned? (DreamWorks)

Californication: The Final Season
In the series' third Final Season, Hank (David Duchovny) slums it as a TV screenwriter, learns he has a son with an old fling (Heather Graham), and makes one last play for the Love of His Life (drugs, er, Natascha McElhone). Go Hank! (Paramount)

Childrens Hospital: Season 5
The hot medical action moves to an Army base in Japan and the CH team faces the challenges of "old-fashioned day," the loss of an Imaginary Friends ward, the return of Blake from the dead and more. Important, important television. (Warner Bros.)

Community: Season 5
Showrunner Dan Harmon returns and Community gets back to the business of being weird—which, naturally, led to NBC finally canceling it. So enjoy MeowMeowBeenz, G.I. Jeff, Pile of Bullets and the rest until Season 6 premieres on Yahoo! (Sony)

Ping Pong Summer
In 1985, outcast teen Rad Miracle's (Marcello Conte) obsession with pingpong and hip-hop lands him in trouble with local bullies, but also an unlikely mentor (Susan Sarandon). The best '80s homage since the last '80s homage. (Millennium)
