Each week here at Bloody Disgusting we like to highlight some of the new Blu-ray releases hitting shelves across the world. Please note that this isn’t every release for the week, just a few of the ones that jumped out at us.
Very, very light weak for Blu-ray releases but still some good stuff to add to your collection! Nicolas Cage has a new movie out where he does battle with sharks which sounds pretty amazing. And as much as I love Nicolas Cage that’s only my third favorite release of the week. The real big ones are Arrow Video’s release of The Black Society Trilogy and the Lionsgate release of The Man Who Fell To Earth. You’re going to want to make sure you get both of those!
