DVD Releases


dvds-072314.jpg After very weak showings at the box office, action-thrillers "Sabotage" and "Transcendence" hope to find a few audiences this week in the home market, highlighting another fairly slow week for DVD and Blu-ray releases. Other new titles hitting the home market this week include inspirational drama "Heaven is for Real" and Tyler Perry's "The Single Moms Club."

Rio2-071515.jpg After a decent stint in theaters, "Rio 2" looks to again find family audiences this week as it heads to DVD and Blu-ray, where it will look to continue the positive momentum of the popular animated franchise from Fox. Also getting launched this week will be the latest seasons of popular TV shows like "Orphan Black" and "Hell on Wheels."

TheRaid2-070814.jpg Though it's another week lacking in blockbuster home market releases, there are still a few interesting titles that should find their target audiences, with acclaimed Indonesian martial arts flick "The Raid 2" leading the way. Also hitting stores this week will be documentary "Jodorowsky's Dune," Lars Von Trier's latest films "Nymphomaniac: Vol. 1 & 2" as well as "Le Week-End."

DVDrelated-070114.jpg In a historically slow portion of the DVD and Blu-ray release schedule, there aren't many prominent new titles hitting stores this week, though there are a few smaller releases and critically acclaimed art house films that should find an audience. Near the top of the list are documentary "The Unknown Known," Japanese import "Like Father Like Son" and horror-thriller "Afflicted."
