This Week on DVD and Blu-ray: The Amazing Spider-Man, REC 3: Genesis, They Live: Collector’s Edition
Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man is the main release swinging into stores this week, but it won’t actually arrive until Friday. In the meantime, you’ll have to settle for some catalog releases and a handful of holiday flicks. Aardman’s well-reviewed animated movie Arthur Christmas debuts on DVD and Blu-ray along with the Kung Fu Panda Holiday Special and a Blu-ray release of The Muppet Christmas Carol starring Michael Caine. Some noteworthy indie releases include [REC] 3: Genesis, Fernando Meirelles’ 360, and Michael Winterbottom’s Trishna, and Universal also unveils their 25-movie 100th Anniversary Collection today. If that’s not enough, Criterion is re-issuing Kurosawa’s classic Rashomon while Shout! Factory offers up a high-definition version of John Carpenter’s They Live. Will you be buying anything this week or are you all out of bubblegum? Check out the full list of new releases after the jump.
