If the summer doldrums have you slumped on the couch, cowering from the heat, at least you’ll have plenty to entertain yourself with as you plant your couch potato roots. There are tons of intriguing new games and movies coming out this week, with the latest downloadable episode of The Walking Dead game and Johnny Depp’s Transcendence leading the charge. If you want to watch people being athletic while remaining immobile yourself, you can take in American Ninja Warrior or a Giants-Phillies game, and erase all memories of everything you’ve played and watched Thursday by getting wasted on National Tequila Day.

All Cheerleaders Die on Blu-ray/DVD
It’s cheerleaders against football players in this zombie horror comedy. The skirt-wearing ladies, who perish while trying to one-up the cocky football players, come back one by one as undead bringers of destruction in the rematch. Check out the trailer here. There’s a 20-minute featurette with cast interviews on the disc.
Dom Hemingway on Blu-ray/DVD
Jude Law steps out of his pretty boy comfort zone to play the title character, a hardscrabble safe cracker who gets out of prison to collect the payday he’s waited 12 years to score. Emilia Clarke, Daenerys from Games of Thrones, plays his hot daughter whose heart he tries to win back. Filmmaker commentary and a making-of featurette pad out the disc.
Oddworld: Abe’s Odysee New ‘n’ Tasty
Originally released on 1997 for the PlayStation, the side-scrolling platformer is back as a PS4 download, remade with better graphics, smoothed-out controls and new levels. You play as a slave warrior whose mouth has been sewn shut and is out for revenge against his oppressors. We’ll see how well the zany 90s humor holds up.
Transcendence on Blu-ray/DVD
In this mind-blowing cyberpunk head trip,, Johnny Depp plays a mad computer scientist who manages to meld his consciousness into artificial intelligence, turning him into an immortal megalomaniac who also happens to be a jerk of a boyfriend to Rebecca Hall. The Blu-ray/DVD/digital copy combo includes filmmaker commentary, a look at how the clever visual effects were created and viral shorts used to promote the film.
