New to Blu-ray: WRECK-IT RALPH, RED DAWN, SCHINDLER’S LIST 20th Anniversary Limited Edition, and More

     March 6, 2013


Here’s a brief look at new Blu-rays hitting shelves this week:

Hit the jump for special features details for the aforementioned new releases.

The Intouchables [Blu-ray]


This French film was a massive hit overseas, but the domestic Blu-ray release is incredibly light on extras.  The only bonus features included here are five deleted scenes.

Lay the Favorite [Blu-ray]


Director Stephen Frears’ comedy was critically derided upon its release, and thus the Blu-ray is pretty bare bones with a collection of deleted scenes standing as the only extras.

Playing for Keeps (+UltraViolet Digital Copy) [Blu-ray]


The romantic comedy’s Blu-ray release comes with 10-minutes of deleted scenes, a short 8-minute featurette on the making of the film, and an even shorter featurette’s on the pic’s cast.

Red Dawn (Blu-ray/DVD Combo + Digital Copy)


This remake takes the cake as far as thin extras goes.  There are literally zero supplements included on the disc.

Schindler’s List 20th Anniversary Limited Edition (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy + UltraViolet)


Those looking for any kind of retrospective or new documentary on this anniversary Blu-ray release of the Steven Spielberg classic will be disappointed, but the disc does include some supplements from the previous DVD release including the 80-minute documentary “Voices from the List” which features heartbreaking first-hand testimony from Holocaust survivors.  The other two extras are a five-minute featurette on Spielberg’s Shoah Foundation and a promo for the online app IWitness.

Wreck-It Ralph (Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD + Digital Copy)

Wreck-It Ralph (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo)



Disney’s video game-inspired animated film comes with quite a few fascinating extras, including a 17-minute featurette that covers the making of the film, 14 minutes of alternate and deleted scenes, commercials for the film’s video games, and a neat feature in which any time the movie is paused, Chris Hardwick pops up to discuss the various in-jokes and references to vintage video games that are found in the movie.  Also included is the incredible short film Paperman in full.
