We’ve got a smattering of new release news for you today...

First up, Warner Home Video has announced the Blu-ray release of Point Blank (the Lee Marvin film) and the original George Pal The Time Machine on 7/8 (SRP $19.98 each).

Warner has also set Afterlife: Series 1 for DVD release on 5/13.

Paramount will release Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones on Blu-ray and DVD on 4/8.

Lionsgate has set Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Neighbors from Hell on DVD only on 4/22.

Image Entertainment will release individual seasons of The Dick Van Dyke Show on Blu-ray on 5/20, along with Way of the Wicked on Blu-ray and DVD that same day. Following on 5/27 on Blu-ray and DVD is Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries: Series 2.

Meanwhile, if you stopped by your local Best Buy yesterday and picked up a copy of Charles de Lauzirika’s Crave on Blu-ray, here’s a list of the extras you found: 25 minutes of deleted and alternate scenes (7 total), feature-length audio commentary with director Charles de Lauzirika and actor Josh Lawson, a 13-part/52-minute behind-the-scenes Director’s Video Journal (includes Prologue, Shatterbrain, Wrong Side of the Tracks, Night at the Races, A Trail of Blood, Style Under Pressure, Kidavers and Nighthawks, Bullets in the Face, Aquarium of Actors, Aiden’s World, Eight Months Later, and Epilogue), 2 additional video features (Crave at Fantasia: World Premiere Interviews and One Nation Under God: The Complete Stage Play – a portion of which appears in the film), The Art of Crave image galleries (includes Storyboards and Products), and 2 trailers for the film. Some additional info: The set is a Blu-ray/DVD Combo that’s only available at Best Buy (here in the States) until 6/9. Best of all, Best Buy has it for just $12.99. That’s a lot of value for your money, so be sure to pick yourself up a copy.

Finally, don’t forget that if you’re interested in Disney’s Frozen in Blu-ray 3D format, it’s available in the U.K. and it’s region free so it will play on U.S. players. Also available as region free BDs in the U.K. are Disney’s Aladdin (yet to be released here in the States) and other out of print Disney titles.

Here’s a look at the cover artwork for Warner’s Point Blank, as well as the region free U.K. BD editions of Disney’s Frozen 3D and Aladdin...

Point Blank (Blu-ray Disc)    Frozen (U.K. region free Blu-ray 3D)    Aladdin (U.K. region free Blu-ray Disc)

Stay tuned...
