Girls: The Complete 5th Season – Blu-Ray/DVD release – 16th January

Before the final season of the much-loved HBO show comes to our screens, why not delve back into Season 5 when it is released to Blu-Ray and DVD on the 16th January? Both Blu-Ray and DVD include a digital download of all 10 episodes, so you can take Lena Dunham and friends on the move wherever you’re going.

‘Man Down’ is the new post-apocalyptic thriller starring Shia Labeouf and Gary Oldman. The film see’s Shia Labeouf searching for his wife (played by Kata Mara) through post-apocalyptic America.
