Woody Harrelson goes bad in "Rampart", playing a renegade LA cop who asserts his own brand of justice. The 1999 cult classic "Being John Malkovich" is returning to DVD on Blu-ray. “The Devil Inside” should satisfy horror fans, following a woman involved in a series of unauthorized exorcisms. And Ken Burn's PBS documentary "The War" arrives on Blu-ray, 6-years in the making, combining its 7-part film on a 6-disc set.
New in music, Idol season 8 runner-up Adam Lambert releases his sophomore album "Trespassing".
