This week Trolls World Tour comes home for the second time. It was one of the first major movies to make a video on-demand debut instead of being released in theaters, but now the Dance Party Edition will be available on Blu-ray with 4K and 3D versions.

Netflix has a number of new series lined up, including the Japan Sinks: 2020 anime, but its biggest release for the week is director Gina Prince-Bythewood’s next flick, The Old Guard. It’s based on a graphic novel with stars including Charlize Theron and Chiwetel Ejiofor, telling the story of unkillable warriors who protect the mortal world or something. I’m expecting some decent action.

Also this week Spaced Invaders is getting a Blu-ray re-release, while Criterion puts out a newly-restored version of War of the Worlds ($28). Otherwise, sports are coming back in the COVID-19 era, as MLS starts a tournament this week and F1 has a second race scheduled at the Red Bull Ring in Austria.

Look below to check out each day's highlights, including trailers and let us know what you think (or what we missed).
