Coming off of winning the coveted Best Picture Academy Award, period drama "12 Years a Slave" heads onto DVD and Blu-ray this week hoping to find a wider overall audience than it was able to reach in theaters. Later in the week, "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" will get a rare Friday release following up the biggest domestic box office run of 2013.
After a couple slow weeks for new releases, this week will bring a wide variety of new titles to DVD and Blu-ray, including director Alfonso Cuaron's smash hit "Gravity," sequel "Thor: The Dark World" and Alexander Payne's critically acclaimed satire "Nebraska." Also hitting stores and digital download will be art house favorite "Blue is the Warmest Color."
After not having the type of box office run many anticipated, "Ender's Game" looks to do a little better with action audiences as it leads a busy week for new Blu-ray releases. Also hitting stores will be "All is Lost," Robert Redford's acclaimed drama about a veteran sailor lost at sea, and star-studded thriller "The Counselor."
