There’s a pattern to how the studios approach things; a rhythm. Warner Home Video has announced a blend of collectibles, Kidvid and TV releases, which is almost always a signal that some major New Theatrical announcements are on the way. They clear the decks with a one-two punch!
Topping the list is the Mar. 26 Blu-ray collection titled The Terminator Anthology, which features all four films in The Terminator series in a collectible five-disc box set. The fan-pleasing array comes loaded with extras, including film commentaries, deleted scenes, featurettes and a director’s cut of Terminator Salvation.
Also on the collectible list are two new classic theatrical cartoon collections debuting on DVD. The First is Looney Tunes Super Stars: Sylvester & Hippety Hopper – Marsupial, which streets on Apr. 23 and includes a dozen animated shorts from the 1940s and ‘50s, including Hop, Look and Listen from 1948 and Hoppy-Go Lucky from 1952.
The second is the Mar. 12 DVD collection titled Tom & Jerry's Musical Mayhem, a package that showcases seven classic Tom & Jerry theatrical cartoons … and is priced to own at just $9.98.
On the TV series front, Blu-ray and DVD sets of Fringe: The Complete Fifth Season will be available for genre fans to own on May 7 and from the vaults look for Maverick: The Complete Second Season (a six-disc set) on Apr. 23 and Rizzoli & Isles: The Complete Third Season (a three-disc collection) on May 14.
For the Kidvid market, LEGO: Batman Movie streets on May 21 as both a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack (with UltraViolet Digital Copy) and as a stand alone DVD SKU, plus there will be DVD product offerings of LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu - Season Two (Mar. 5), What's New Scooby-Doo: The Complete Second Season (a double-disc set on Mar. 19), Tom & Jerry Kids Show: The Complete Season One (also a double-disc set, Apr. 30) and The Best of Warner Bros.
