This week on Blu-ray Kristen Stewart’s summer fairy tale hits home video, James Cameron’s epic love story gets a multi-disc upgrade, and Vampires of a different sort come home.  Briefly:

Hit the jump for more details.

The Devil Inside [Blu-ray]


This low-budget horror film wasn’t exactly a hit with critics, but it made a box office splash on opening weekend.  That said, it also netted an insane drop in revenue on its second weekend.  The Blu-ray disc is bare bones, with literally zero special features included.

Snow White and the Huntsman (Two-Disc Combo Pack: Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy + UltraViolet)


Though the Kristen Stewart-fronted gritty take on a fairy tale classic is a bit tainted by certain goings-on behind-the-scenes, Snow White and the Huntsman is now headed to home video complete with an extended cut of director Rupert Sanders’ solemn actioner.  The Blu-ray disc comes with the 127-minute theatrical cut as well as a 131-minute extended cut of the film, along with a commentary by Sanders, visual effects supervisor Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, and co-editor Neil Smith.  The pack also comes with a “second screen” feature in which viewers can access extra content on tablet at home, a photographic tour of the soundstages and sets, a 21-minute principal featurette on the film and a few other featurettes that cover the visual effects, fairy tale elements, and specific characters.

Titanic (Four-Disc Combo: Blu-ray 3D / Blu-ray / Digital Copy)


To celebrate the 3D re-release of James Cameron’s epic period piece, the film is now hitting Blu-ray in grand fashion.  Fans can pick up the insanely loaded 3D/2D Blu-ray combo pack that also includes a digital copy.  The regular set is packed with special features including three different commentaries from 2005 (Cameron, cast & crew, and historians), two hour-plus long documentaries (Reflections on Titanic which is a four-part making-of featurette and The Final Word with James Cameron which examines what really happened to the RMS Titanic), deleted and extended scenes, and a bounty of mini featurettes, videomatics, and diving videos.

The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Fifth Season


The fifth season of the geek-friendly (or not, depending on your view of the series) comedy The Big Bang Theory is hitting home video just in time for the new season.  All 24-episodes are included on this set, along with a featurette centering on hitting the 100-episode milestone, a 15-minute featurette taking views on a tour of the series’ many production facilities that put each episode together, and a featurette that involves the actors reflecting on season five memories.  As always, a lengthy gag reel is also included.

The Vampire Diaries: The Complete Third Season [Blu-ray]


The combo pack for The CW’s vampire soap comes complete with Blu-ray, DVD, and Ultraviolet digital copies of each episode.  The 22 season three episodes are supplemented with four new featurettes: one looking into the creative process behind each episode (writing, fx, score, etc.), one looking back on the series’ “favorite scenes”, another centering on Stefan’s Descent into Darkness, and finally a featurette that allows fans to trace the timeline, family tree, and mythological roots of the show’s vampires.  A batch of deleted scenes and a gag reel are also thrown in for good measure.
