Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has selected June 13 as the street date for a three-SKU helping of director Chris McKay’s The LEGO Batman Movie.

The ARR works out to 123 days and the domestic box office count currently stands at $173.8 million.

As to bonus goodies, filmmaker Chris McKay will be providing commentary, plus there are deleted scenes, the Comic Con Panel video session, four animated short films —  Dark Hoser, Batman is Just Not That Into You, Cooking with Alfred and Movie Sound Effects: How Do They Do That? — and five featurettes: “One Brick at a Time: Making the Lego Batman Movie,” “Inside Wayne Manor,” “Brick by Brick: Making of the LEGO Batman,” “Behind the Brick” and “Me and My Mini Fig.”

Also announced by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment this past week were four new Blu-ray releases that will be available during the month of May.  

First up is director John Frankenheimer’s 1964 political thriller, Seven Days in May, pitting Burt Lancaster as General James Mattoon Scott against the weak-willed President Jordan Lyman (Fredric March), with Kirk Douglas (Colonel “Jiggs” Casey), Martin Balsam (presidential advisor Paul Girard) and Edmond O’Brien as the heavy-drinking Senator Raymond Clark as his only allies in stopping a military coup.

The Blu-ray for this double-Oscar nominee (Edmond O’Brien for Best Supporting Actor and Best Art Direction) will be available on May 2.

The following week, Tuesday, May 9, look for director Lawrence Kasdan’s 1988 Best Picture nominee, The Accidental Tourist, starring William Hurt, Kathleen Turner and Geena Davis (she won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress) and director Tony Richardson’s 1965 film adaptation of the 1948 Evelyn Waugh novel, The Loved One, which is noted for its all-star cast that includes Jonathan Winters, Robert Morse, Anjanette Comer and Rod Steiger in leading roles and so-called “guest” appearances by none other than John Gielgud, Roddy McDowall, James Coburn, Liberace and “Uncle Miltie,” Milton Berle.

And last, but not least, May 16 brings director Harold Becker’s 1985 film adaptation of the Terry Davis novel, Vision Quest, to Blu-ray.   Matthew Modine, Linda Florentino and Ronny Cox star, with Madonna appearing as a bar singer belting out “Crazy For You” and “Gambler.”
