Much like when it opened in theaters, studios backed away from releasing high profile theatrical releases on home video this week, allowing the second biggest grossing domestic film of all time, The Avengers, to have this week all to itself. If you happen to be one of the remaining 19 or so people still on the planet who have yet to see The Avengers, the time is now. Other than a couple of impressive box set releases, this is a relatively light week for new home video discoveries.
Our Movie of the Week is naturally The Avengers, but check out the films which opted for counter-programming this week, plus a whole lot more, in this week’s edition of Spins and Streams!
More than just another column about new home video releases, we will link to reviews, summarize the film, drop in some factual tidbits, and (naturally) offer you a chance to purchase the film (clicking the images and/or links and purchasing the film of interest helps keep the lights on!).
Consider it your weekly trip through the video store, both virtual and physical, scouring the shelves and combing the racks to find something you can enjoy at home, no matter what your personal preferences…
See what else arrives in stores and via streaming services…after the cut!
