We’ve got a couple more great new Blu-ray Disc reviews for you guys today.  First up, Joe Marchese has dropped in with his analysis of Jacques Audiard’s recent Rust and Bone (De rouille et d’os), now available on Blu-ray from Sony Pictures Classics.  Also this morning, Tim has given Paramount’s Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters (Unrated Cut) a spin.  The disc arrived in stores on Tuesday.

Not to be outdone, Mario Boucher has a new Inside Cinema column for you looking at the history of the Fast & Furious franchise.  Do give it a look.

And in news from around the Net today, here’s something interesting:  According to new data from the NPD Group, the two largest non-gaming activities surveyed PS3 users regularly engage in are watching a DVD (34%) and watching a Blu-ray (34%).  Streaming movies over the Internet from Netflix and other services came in third.  More here.  Thanks to Bits reader Tony M. for the heads-up!

Here’s a look at the Blu-ray Disc cover artwork for Image’s Prime Suspect: Complete Collection (due 8/27), and their catalog reissues of Sony’s 88 Minutes (8/20) and The Tailor of Panama (also 8/20)...

Prime Suspect: Complete Collection (Blu-ray Disc)    88 Minutes (Blu-ray Disc)    The Tailor of Panama (Blu-ray Disc)
