Answer to Trivia

What do they say about hindsight being 20/20? Many actors and actresses turn down projects that they later regret. For instance, it was reported that Emma Watson and Miles Teller originally turned down the leads from this year's awards season darling La La Land

Back in 2010, before Sondra Bullock signed on to play Leigh Anne Touhy in The Blind Side, Julia Roberts was offered the role. She turned it down to take a role in Valentine's Day. She reportedly earned a $3 million paycheck for the 251 words that she says in the film.

Sondra Bullock, on the other hand, earned an Oscar for Best Actress for her work in The Blind Side. There's not a lot of love in the air this week at the store, but check out Arrival and The Edge of Seventeen, which are new to DVD and Blu-ray.
