New on DVD: ‘Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs in 3D’ ‘Green Zone,’ ‘She’s Out of My League,’ More

'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 3D' on DVDCloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 3D This animated blockbuster marks Sony’s first-ever 3D Blu-ray title in the U.S. Bill Hader voices a scientist whose big invention goes haywire and causes giant food to rain from the skies. Not so bad for the town’s hungry folks, but when they start getting greedy for more and more pizza and spaghetti and ice cream, the machine goes crazy and the supersized meals threaten the world! Extras: “Raining Sunshine” music video and the making-of, “A Recipe for Success” behind the scenes; the voices; extended scenes and 3D sneak previews of Open Season and Monster House 3D BDs.

Green Zone Yes, it got slammed pretty hard when it came out for being a lesser version of the Bourne movies complete with Paul Greengrass’s really irritating and wholly unnecessary shaky-cam, but give it a chance at home and you might have a darn good time. Matt Damon plays a soldier caught in Iraq War subterfuge on the hunt for WMDs that—surprise!—were never there in the first place. Extras: Matt Damon, on his exhaustive training, behind the scenes, feature commentary, deleted scenes, digital copy (DVD/BD)
 
She’s Out of My League “It” boy Jay Baruchel is a sweet, smart underachiever who finally gets the gorgeous blonde—which is great, except where his ego-deflating, relationship-dooming family and friends are concerned. 'Shes' Out of My League'Extras: Deleted scenes, extended ending, blooper real, “do’s and don’ts of dating” for guys, director commentary (DVD/BD)
 
The Last Station Extremely well-received drama stars the Christopher Plummer as Leo Tolstoy and Helen Mirren as his wife, who were famously involved in one of history’s most turbulent relationships. Both were Oscar nominated this year for their roles. Extras: “A Tribute to Christopher Plummer,” actors/director commentary, deleted scenes, outtakes (DVD/BD)
 
Remember Me Robert Pattinson takes a bite out of this drama not as a vampire this time, but as a young man estranged from his father who thinks he finds a kindred spirit in his new love (Lost’s Emilie de Ravin)—until, inevitably, tragedy strikes. Extras: Cast and director commentary, making-of.
 
New on Blu
 
Death Race 2000 One of the greatest B-movies ever made stars Sylvester Stallone and David Carradine as two star drivers in a gory, yearly coast-to-coast race where points are scored by number of innocent pedestrians hit. Directed by Roger Corman protégé Paul Bartel in 1975, it’s not only gratuitously violent (watch Sly drive over someone’s head like it was a cantaloupe); it can also be bitingly funny. The Jason Statham remake didn’t do it justice. Extras: New audio commentary, “Playing the Game: Looking Back at “Death Race 2000” featurette, interviews with the composer and costume designer, collectible booklet and more.
