THE POOP SCOOP: "Killer" Edition

Warner Bros’ THE LITTLE THINGS on PVOD 3/19, Digital 4/20 and Blu-ray/DVD 5/4 
Uncover the disturbing secrets in the search for a killer terrorizing the city when “The Little Things” arrives on Premium Video on Demand (PVOD), Blu-ray, DVD and Digital. The film is directed by John Lee Hancock (“The Blind Side,” “Saving Mr. Banks,” “The Founder”) and stars Academy Award winners Denzel Washington (“Training Day,” “Glory”), Rami Malek (“Bohemian Rhapsody”) and Jared Leto (“Dallas Buyers Club”). Kern County Deputy Sheriff Joe “Deke” Deacon (Washington) is sent to Los Angeles for what should have been a quick evidence-gathering assignment. Instead, he becomes embroiled in the search for a killer who is terrorizing the city. Leading the hunt, L.A. Sheriff Department Sergeant Jim Baxter (Malek), impressed with Deke’s cop instincts, unofficially engages his help. But as they track the killer, Baxter is unaware that the investigation is dredging up echoes of Deke’s past, uncovering disturbing secrets that could threaten more than his case.
