New on DVD: 'The Mechanic,' 'The Rite,' 'The Roommate'

The Mechanic Jason Statham stars as Arthur Bishop, an elite, cold-as-ice hit man who is the best in his business of eliminating targets and making their deaths look accidental (or suicide, or what have you). When Bishop’s boss and good friend Harry (Donald Sutherland) becomes a target, this assassin becomes anything but detached—he’s hell bent on revenge. Things get more complicated when Harry’s son (Ben Foster) wants in on the action, and what should have been a clean, quick mission becomes messier than anyone thought possible. Extras: Deleted scenes, “Tools of the Trade” featurette on the action and stunts (BD/DVD).

The Rite While studying at exorcism school at the Vatican, skeptical seminary student Michael (Colin O'Donoghue) meets creepy Father Lucas (Anthony Hopkins), who seems to be the local go-to guy when it comes to flushing the Devil out of one’s body.   Michael’s not buying any of this, until he visits Father Lucas one day and finds the priest possessed by the spirit of a young girl he’d just freed from Satan’s clutches. This one’s rated PG-13, in case you are worried about it being too scary for younger audiences. Extras: Deleted scenes (DVD/BD), alternate ending and featurette on the priest who inspired the film (BD only). Check out this exclusive clip from the Blu-ray.
The Roommate Minka Kelly plays pretty co-ed Sara, who unwittingly becomes the object of her righ-girl roommate Rebecca’s (Leighton Meester) obsessions—whether it’s eliminating the pet kitty, having phone sex with Sara’s ex or getting in the way of her current relationship with Stephen (Cam Gigandet). If this all sounds Single White Female with some hot girls and a PG-13 rating, you’re right. Extras: Commentary, deleted scenes (DVD/BD); BD offers two making-of featurettes and a piece on "The Next Generation of Stars."
