Coming off of an enormous box office run around the world, "Despicable Me 2" heads to DVD and Blu-ray this week in great position to do very well with holiday shoppers. Also with plenty of appeal should be action-thriller "Fast & Furious 6," the blockbuster release starring the late Paul Walker opposite Vin Diesel.
As the holiday shopping season ramps up, franchise reboot "The Wolverine" is easily the most prominent new title headed to stores, with "The Smurfs 2" and "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" also looking to find mainstream audiences starting this week. Other new releases include comedy "Drinking Buddies" and special edition sets of both "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy" and "Argo."
Following up one of the most highly anticipated finales in cable history, the final season of "Breaking Bad" makes its way onto DVD and Blu-ray starting this week, which should make it a hot item heading into the holiday shopping season. Also getting launched is action-thriller "Red 2," Ashton Kutcher-starring biopic "Jobs" and Ethan Hawke-starring thriller "Getaway."
Following up a fairly spectacular box office run, "We're the Millers" makes its way onto DVD and Blu-ray in great position to once again find mainstream audiences, even with some direct competition from "The World's End." Aiming at a different crowd will be "Planes," another commercially successful Disney spin-off that shouldn't have much of a problem finding family audiences in the home market.
Following up a very strong box office run, "Man of Steel" is easily the most prominent new title hitting the home market in a fairly slow overall week for new releases. Also getting launched this week is documentary "Blackfish," animated film "Turbo" and the final season of "Dexter," which just wrapped up after being one of the flagships for Showtime since it first aired back in 2006.
