SALE Click this link to purchase select titles from our online store.


First up is the second entry in Peter Jackson's three part LORD OF THE RINGS prequel adaptation, THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG (@ BLU 3D SALE). This one adds a lot of new material to Tolkien's book, including an appearance by Legolas the Elf and a potential romantic interest for him. Oh, and it also has Benedict Cumberbatch as a dragon!

Next we've got a film adaptatin of Tracy Letts' award-winning play AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY (BLU), about multiple generations of women returning home for a family funeral where a lot of built up unpleasantness (to put it mildly) gets dredged up. It's got an incredible cast, with Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Chris Cooper, Sam Shepard, Juliette Lewis, Benedict Cumberbatch, Abigail Breslin and Ewan McGregor. If you want to see all these folks yell at each other for a couple hours, this is the movie for you.

Finally there's Ben Wheatley's latest film. The director of cult hit KILL LIST returns with A FIELD IN ENGLAND (@ BLU SALE), a psychedelic thriller set during a battle of the English Civil War. Maybe when you're trying to escape from a certain doom on the battlefield it's not a great idea to eat some magic mushrooms, but hey, we're not judging.

As for the rest, don't forget to check out the following: We got Claire Denis' latest film BASTARDS (SALE). An expanded documentary about Miami's 1980s cocaine traffickers, COCAINE COWBOYS RELOADED (@ BLU SALE). Paz de la Huerta gets nasty in NURSE (BLU 3D). Chinese filmmaker Jia Zhangke's black comedy A TOUCH OF SIN (@ BLU SALE). Jude Law is a gangster in DOM HEMINGWAY. Stallone and De Niro play aging rival boxers in GRUDGE MATCH (BLU). The Heroes at The Criterion Collection have rereleased both Francois Truffaut's debut feature THE 400 BLOWS (@ BLU SALE) and the all-time classic NIGHT OF THE HUNTER (@ BLU SALE). Another PARANORMAL ACTIVITY movie, THE MARKED ONES (BLU). There's Ken Loach's forgotten period adventure BLACK JACK (@ BLU SALE), a big influence on MOONRISE KINGDOM. Perhaps the best movie about nerds ever made, ZERO CHARISMA. From Olive Films we have three new Blu-rays, classic noir CRY DANGER (@ BLU SALE), and two spy films, THE BAMBOO SAUCER (@ BLU SALE) and BANG! BANG! YOU'RE DEAD! (@ BLU SALE). SABRINA (@ BLU SALE) and FUNNY FACE (@ BLU SALE) with Audrey Hepburn arrive on Blu-ray, along with 1954's YOUNG AT HEART (@ BLU SALE).
