New DVD and Blu-ray Releases For April 29, 2014
(KUTV) It's another fairly slow week for new releases led by Jason Reitman's adaptation of Joyce Maynard's acclaimed novel Labor Day starring Josh Brolin and Kate Winslet. Considering the cast and Reitman's recent work it's hard not to be disappointed in the resulting film as it feels more like a soap opera than an engaging drama.
This week also sees the release of the cinematic debacle known as The Legend of Hercules starring Kellan Lutz (Twilight) as the mythical Greek hero, the slow-moving horrors of Devil's Due, which finds a pair of newlyweds dealing with a very unexpected pregnancy and the over hyped Sundance sci-fi sleeper Escape from Tomorrow.
Elsewhere the Criterion Collection debuts Dino Risi's 1962 comedy Il Sorpasso, Funimation launches the anime classic Space Battleship Yamato and in preparation for the upcoming release of Godzilla comes Godzilla: The Complete Animated Series and a pair of Blu-ray collections for Godzilla's box office foe Gameria, the giant turtle Kaiju, Gameria: Ultimate Collection Volume 1 and Volume 2.
