First up is one of the big ones, sure to be a hot renter and seller. You guessed it, GAME OF THRONES: SEASON 3 (@ BLU SALE). Covering just the first half of the third book, "A Storm of Swords", in George R. R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" series. This season ends with a big event that those of you who haven't read the books are probably sick of trying to avoid hearing about! Well now's your chance to finally see what all the fuss is.

The Heroes at The Criterion Collection have released two fantastic films this week. The first is Alfred Hitchcock's classic suspense thriller FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT (@ BLU SALE), about an American reporter trying to expose German agents in London just before the outbreak of World War II. Hitch made this film in America partially as an attempt to urge the United States to enter the war. Criterion has of course produced a typically beautiful package for it, something any fan or film lover will want to check out.

Also from Criterion is one of our most anticipated releases of the new year, Wes Anderson's FANTASTIC MR. FOX (@ BLU SALE), a stop-motion animated version of Roald Dahl's children's novel. This is an absolutely, unforgettably gorgeous film for all ages that belongs in any collection. Criterion has put out another amazing set, jammed with extras that really highlight the painstaking work that went into animating this movie. You don't want to miss it.

 

As for the rest, don't forget to check out: Quirky indie sex comedy AFTERNOON DELIGHT (@ BLU SALE). A lovely Blu-ray/DVD combo of Orson Welles' THE LADY FROM SHANGHAI (@ BLU SALE). French erotic horror abounds in new box set THE CINEMA OF JEAN ROLLIN (@ BLU SALE). We've got signed copies of new locally-made horror film THE INVOKING (@ SALE). And a new documentary about cinema from Slavoj Zizek, THE PERVERT'S GUIDE TO IDEOLOGY (@ SALE). On the rental tip: Frederick Wiseman's latest opus AT BERKELEY. Dolph Lundgren teams up with robots to fight zombies in BATTLE OF THE DAMNED. A new season of NURSE JACKIE. Scroll down for a bunch of new Manufacture On Demand (MOD) tiltes from Warner Archive and Fox, and at the bottom of this page you'll find another fresh batch of British Television Imports!

And don't forget to check out Shout! Factory's new Blu-ray release of Sam Raimi's cult classic DARKMAN (@ BLU SALE)! It's basically a superhero film that's not actually based on a comic book. Liam Neeson stars as a scientist who uses a synthetic skin he invented to exact revenge on the criminals who horribly disfigured him and left him for dead. This is a somehow-still-unheralded blast from the guy who brought you THE EVIL DEAD and SPIDER-MAN movies.
