It’s a week dominated by animated films with Disney/Pixar’s The Incredibles getting a full blown release in a four disc edition with Blu-ray, DVD, and digital copies. Cars, previously released on Blu-ray in ’07 and as a Combo Pack with DVD in ’09, is now available as a two-disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo (in Blu-ray packaging) with plenty of extras and deleted scenes.
The animated Ga Rei Zero: Complete Series is available in a limited edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack. The four-disc set from Funimation includes 300 minutes of content, location specials, promotional videos & trailers, textless songs, and the series’ premiere episode.
Two Criterion Collection movies have also hit the shelves on Blu-ray Disc. White Material (2010) is about a white family from France living in Africa among civil unrest and racial tension. Le Cercle Rouge (1970) is a French crime thriller in which a thief and escaped prisoner meet and plan a large jewelry heist. Criterion added back 40 minutes of the film which was cut for American theater release.
