New DVD and Blu-ray Releases for August 27, 2013
(KUTV) This weeks DVD and Blu-ray releases include Baz Lurhmanns spectacle driven adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgeralds celebrated novel The Great Gatsby, Michael Bays fact-based Pain & Gain, a film about a trio of clueless bodybuilders and a kidnapping that goes wrong, the third season of AMCs celebrated, and surprisingly cerebral, zombie drama The Walking Dead and the fifth season of FXs primal motorcycle drama Sons of Anarchy.
Those looking for something a little more family friendly have Disney's Super Buddies, the newest installment in the talking-dog series, as well as the Blu-ray release of 1977s classic cartoon The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.
Fans of independent cinema have Mira Nair's (The Namesake) adaptation of Mohsin Hamid's novel The Reluctant Fundamentalist starring Riz Ahmed, Live Schreiber and Kiefer Sutherland, the surreal French animated feature The Painting, the BBC collection Damian Lewis Double Feature featuring Lewis in a modern update of Much Ado About Nothing and Stephen Poliakoff's Friends and Crocodiles or Scatter My Ashes At Bergdorf's, a fashion documentary that pays tribute to one of New Yorks iconic stores.
