Nominated for Best Picture as well as nine other categories, Gravity is available in both 2D and 3D editions, both of which include a DVD copy and Digital HD copy via UltraViolet. Also nominated for Best Picture, Nebraska starring Bruce Dern is available in a 2-Disc Blu-ray edition that comes with DVD and Digital HD copy.
Not nominated, but a good adventure film nonetheless, Thor: The Dark World is out on Blu-ray this week, available in 2D or 3D editions with DVD and Digital HD copy. And, Criterion Collection has released the French film Blue Is the Warmest Color (La Vie d’Adèle) to high-definition Blu-ray Disc.
