Best damn series on TV (cable or otherwise) these days. Of course that’s Breaking Bad, teaming Bryan Cranston with Aaron Paul as unlikely “big time” meth dealers who have managed to survive four full seasons without getting killed (or is that whacked?).
On June 4, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will be releasing DVD & Blu-ray editions of Breaking Bad: The Fifth Season … is this the end, or will Walt and Jesse somehow survive international cartels, a snoopy relative and their new “partner,” Mike (Jonathan Banks).
As to bonus goodies, both the DVD (a three-disc set) and the Blu-ray (two discs) include commentary on all ten episodes, deleted scenes, outtakes and three featurettes — “Nothing Stops This Train,” “The Cleaner: Jonathan Banks as Mike” and “Chicks ‘N’ Guns: Behind-the-Scenes.” Exclusive to the Blu-ray are two additional featurettes.
Also getting a street date assignment this week from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is director Taylor Hackford’s Parker, starring Jason Statham in the title role — a double-crossed thief who sets out for revenge.
The release date for both DVD and Blu-ray editions is May 21, which yields and ARR of 116 days — the box office take was $17.6 million.
