Blu-ray Releases 5/12/13 – 5/18/13
This week on Blu-ray: both America and Australia net two releases each, but which one has the better titles? Let’s find out.
Gangster Squad comes to Blu-ray this week. The Ryan Gosling starring Crime Drama is still in theaters around the world with over $105.2 million in the bank which isn’t too high above its $60 million budget. We have a review of Gangster Squad here on the site, which you can read right here. The Blu-ray comes with an Ultraviolet copy.
This is 40 comes to Blu-ray this week. Judd Apatow’s latest Comedy is still in theaters worldwide with over $88 million and counting which is pretty good considering it had a $35 million budget. This is 40 comes with an Ultraviolet copy.
Cloud Atlas comes to Blu-ray this week. The Tom Hanks and Halle Berry Sci-Fi had an unknown budget and currently has $130.4 million worldwide. It might have made its money back but we’re not sure. If you buy the film at Wal-Mart, you get a free VUDU copy along with the DVD and Ultraviolet copy that also comes with the regular version.
Texas Chainsaw 3D comes to Blu-ray this week. There’s no special 3D bundle and 2D bundle, there’s just one disc that has both the 3D and 2D copies on it. Anyway, Texas Chainsaw 3D is still in theaters worldwide with over $34.3 million in the bank on an unknown budget. There are no retailer exclusives but the Blu-ray comes with an Ultraviolet copy.
That’s it for this week. Both territories received two films although if you average the films into review aggregator website, Rotten Tomatoes, Australia has a 42% rating while America has 42.5%. America wins by a hair.
