As the summer movie season magically changes to fall although it is still technically summer, summer films like Now You See Me 2 are now making their way to DVD/Blu-ray. Now You See Me 2 was one of many sequels in the last few months, making it a little easy to get lost in the shuffle.

At the least, it is the only sequel out on DVD and Blu-ray on Sept. 6, but it is far from the only movie. The week's new releases also includes money monsters, intense darkness, meddlers, equals and more.
