Paul Conroy (Ryan Reynolds) is not ready to die. But when he wakes up six feet underground with no idea of who put him there or why, life for the truck driver and family man instantly becomes a hellish struggle for survival. Buried with only a cell phone and a lighter, his contact with the outside world and ability to piece together clues that could help him discover his location are maddeningly limited. Poor reception, a rapidly draining battery, and a dwindling oxygen supply become his worst enemies in a tightly confined race against time; fighting panic, despair and delirium, Paul has only ninety minutes to be rescued before his worst nightmare comes true. (R, 1:35)

Stone (2010) Stone on DVDStone on Blu-ray Disc

The lives of a seasoned corrections official and a scheming inmate become dangerously intertwined when Jack Mabry (Robert De Niro), a parole officer days away from retirement, is asked to review the case of Gerald “Stone” Creeson (Edward Norton), in prison for arson. Now eligible for early release, Stone needs to convince Jack he has reformed, but his attempts to influence the older man’s decision with his wife Lucetta (Milla Jovovich) have profound and unexpected effects on them both. This tale of passion, betrayal and corruption skillfully weaves together the parallel journeys of two men grappling with dark impulses, as the line between lawman and lawbreaker becomes precariously thin. (R, 2:21)
