Disney's Maleficent Blu-ray

One of the best-known Disney villains dominated the big screen earlier this year, and she's poised to do the same to the small screen as 2014 comes to a close, as Disney's Maleficent flies onto Blu-ray Nov. 4. The timing of the Maleficent release date will pose a quandary for many would-be owners, as it comes weeks before the Black Friday shopping weekend. To watch or not to watch early, that will be the question. Those with a weak willpower will surely succumb to Angelina Jolie's villainous appeal. After grossing … [Read more...]

Blu-ray

Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore have traditionally fared well in theaters. Their latest outing, Blended, was an exception to that rule, which perhaps explains why Warner Bros. has accelerated the Blended Blu-ray street date. The Blended Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and Digital HD versions will all release on Aug. 26, just three months after the film debuted in theaters on May 23. That's a pretty quick turn, but it's probably an attempt to maximize earnings for a film that didn't do as well as expected on the big … [Read more...]
