After weeks of speculation regarding its inevitable home video bow, Lucasfilm and Walt Disney Home Entertainment have officially announced that Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be coming to Blu-ray and DVD next month. In addition to a full list of special features we can expect, cover art for the individual editions were also unveiled today. There will also be some retailer exclusive editions featuring extra bonus content and special packaging.

Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment will release their smash superhero sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier on multiple home viewing formats early next month. As a preview of what fans and potential buyers can expect from the extras that will be included, the studios have released two deleted scenes from the film.
You can check them out here below.
The scenes are brief and their deletion from the final cut is understandable, but they do offer some fine additional moments with some of the film’s supporting cast and a small bit of action. Between the dual critical and commercial success of this and Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel has had one hell of a year.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier comes to Blu-ray, DVD, and Blu-ray 3D combo pack on September 9, 2014. Right now Amazon is only offering the film for sale on Digital HD for those who pre-order (the other formats are not up for pre-order yet).
Robin Hood finally shoots its way onto Blu-ray, but sadly the titular character does not steal the screen in the best way. It’s no Disney classic, at least for those of us who did not grow up with Maid Marian and friends, but the 1973 movie deserves a viewing if you go into it with reasonable expectations.
Fair warning. I did not have any sentimental feelings in watching Robin Hood, namely because I did not watch this film repeatedly during childhood. Thus I found it harder to connect with the oddball assortment of characters and collection of ideas that somehow never seem cohesive. The personalities are cute. The forceful underdog story moves even the most cynical. The humor recalls the tongue-in-cheek intelligence found in many of Disney’s finest. Yet Robin Hood appears to try too hard in representing something remarkable when at its core the film is straightforward minimalism.
