We’ve got a couple of new Blu-ray Disc reviews for you today...

The good Dr. Jahnke has given Thomas Vinterberg’s The Hunt a look. The film stars Mads Mikkelsen and is available now from Magnolia. Meanwhile, Tim has given Taika Waititi’s Boy a spin. The indie release hails from New Zealand and is available now on BD from Kino Lorber.

Also today, our own Mario Boucher has turned in a new Inside Cinema column today, in which he goes behind the scenes at Digital Domain on the making of Gavin Hood’s Ender’s Game, which is newly-available on Blu-ray from Lionsgate. Watch for our review of the disc in the next couple of days. Enjoy! [Read on here...]

In announcement news this afternoon, Twilight Time is now taking pre-orders on the Blu-ray release of All the King’s Men (1949), Equus (1977), Fever Pitch (1997), Conrack (1974) and Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia (1974). SRP is $29.95 each except for Fever Pitch which is $24.95.

Lionsgate has set Gimmie Shelter for Blu-ray and DVD on 4/29, followed by Orange Is the New Black: Season One on Blu-ray and DVD on 5/13.

Paramount will release Labor Day on Blu-ray and DVD on 4/29.

Universal seems to be re-issuing just about every action, sci-fi and comedy film they have on Blu-ray in new “comic book” Steelbook packaging on 5/6.

Anchor Bay Films and Stars has set At Middleton for Blu-ray and DVD release on 4/1.

And in other news today, there’s a new trailer out for the upcoming Jodorowsky’s Dune documentary. It opens in New York and L.A. on 3/21 and we have it on good authority that there will be a Blu-ray and DVD release from Sony later this year. Can’t wait! Here’s a link to the official website and here’s the trailer...

We’ll leave you with a look at the Blu-ray cover artwork for Lionsgate’s Orange Is the New Black: Season One, Paramount’s Labor Day, and HBO’s Eastbound & Down: Season Four (due 5/13)...

Labor Day (Blu-ray Disc)    Orange Is the New Black: Season One (Blu-ray Disc)    Eastbound and Down: Season Four (Blu-ray Disc)

Stay tuned...
