DVD Releases


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."

300-riseofempire-062514.jpg Following up a fairly impressive box office run, "300: Rise of an Empire" will be looking to once again find action-seeking crowds starting this week on Blu-ray, which shouldn't be too hard considering its fairly light overall competition. Also getting launched into the home market this week will be Jake Gyllenhaal-starring indie "Enemy" and crime-thriller "Blood Ties."
