No real big releases this week, I don't think I remember these being in the theaters. Anyway The Call and The Incredible Burt Wonderstone look like they may be decent and I do want to see A Place at the Table.

These are some of the new DVDs released this week, the ones I find interesting or of note.

Jordan's clever instructions allow Leah to evade the intruder, but when the call is disconnected Jordan calls Leah back which gives away Leah's hiding spot to the intruder.
