Other film releases include Sleepless, The Founder, Donnie Darko (2001) Limited Edition, the Japanese anime film Ocean Waves (1993), a Collector’s Edition of Tales from the Hood (1995) and the animated DC Comics title Teen Titans: Judas Contract.
For TV shows, Killjoys: Season Two is now available, as well as the Japanese anime series Undefeated Bahamut Chronicles and Is It Wrong to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon.
