05.30.2017 - Batman and Harley Quinn on Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital HD August 29th

BATMAN LEADS AN UNLIKELY TRIO TO SAVE HUMANITY AS WARNER BROS. HOME ENTERTAINMENT AND DC ENTERTAINMENT RELEASE THE ALL-NEW ANIMATED DC UNIVERSE ORIGINAL MOVIE: BATMAN AND HARLEY QUINN ARRIVES ON Ultra HD BLU-RAY™, BLU-RAY™ DELUXE GIFTSET, BLU-RAY™ AND DVD AUGUST 29th!

A New Original Story From Animation Icon Bruce Timm


A looming global catastrophe forces Batman and Nightwing to partner with an unlikely hero in Batman and Harley Quinn, the next entry in the popular series of DC Universe Original Movies. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment, the all-new, feature-length animated film arrives August 15 on Digital and August 29 on Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-ray Deluxe Giftset, Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD.



Spawned from an original story by animation icon Bruce Timm, Batman and Harley Quinn will be available in several popular formats as the first Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack ($44.98 SRP) release of a DC Universe Original Movie; Blu-ray Deluxe Giftset ($39.99 SRP), featuring an exclusive Harley Quinn figurine; Blu-ray Combo Pack ($24.98 SRP); DVD ($19.98 SRP); and Digital ($19.99 HD, $14.99 SD). The Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack features an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc in 4K with HDR and a Blu-ray disc featuring the film; the Blu-ray Combo Pack features the film in hi-definition; and the DVD features the movie in standard definition. The Ultra HD Blu-ray and Blu-ray Combo Pack include a digital version of the film.


In Batman and Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy and Jason Woodrue (a.k.a. The Floronic Man) embark on an ecological quest to save the planet – and, unfortunately, eliminate most of humankind along the way. To save humanity, Batman and Nightwing are forced to enlist Harley Quinn to catch Poison Ivy, Harley’s BFF and frequent partner-in-crime. But Batman’s patience is put to the test by the unpredictable and untrustworthy Harley during the twists and turns the reluctant companions face during their bumpy road trip. The result is a thrill ride of action, adventure and comedy no Batman fan has seen before.

The latest DC animated film features a stellar voice cast led by Kevin Conroy (Batman: The Animated Series) reprising his role as the Dark Knight, alongside Melissa Rauch (The Big Bang Theory) making her debut as the irrepressible Harley Quinn. Loren Lester, the voice of Robin in Batman: The Animated Series, returns as Nightwing. Paget Brewster (Criminal Minds) and Kevin Michael Richardson (The Cleveland Show) provide the voices of the villainous duo Poison Ivy & Jason Woodrue, respectively.

Sam Liu (Batman: The Killing Joke) directed from an original story by Bruce Timm (Batman: The Dark Knight Returns) with a teleplay written by Timm & Jim Krieg (Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox). Co-Producer is Alan Burnett (The Batman). Executive Producers are Sam Register and Bruce Timm. Benjamin Melniker and Michael Uslan are Executive Producers.

“In this all-new movie, we give Harley Quinn the starring role she deserves as she partners with Batman and Nightwing to save the day,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Vice President, Family & Animation Marketing. “We are thrilled to showcase the latest story from the remarkable mind of Bruce Timm for all fans to enjoy.”

Batman and Harley Quinn boasts enhanced content including multiple featurettes and sneak peeks into what is next for the DC Universe.

Own It On DVD August 15, 2017
Riverdale coming to Blu-ray via Warner Archive Collection



Unlock the mystery and dive into small town secrets as Warner Bros. Home Entertainment releases Riverdale: The Complete First Season on DVD on August 15, 2017. Premiering with 2.4 million viewers, The CW’s top new show across all major demos* is created by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Glee, Big Love), produced by Greg Berlanti (The Flash, Supergirl, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Blindspot), and stars KJ Apa (Shortland Street), Lili Reinhart (The Kings of Summer), Camila Mendes (Randy Doe), Cole Sprouse (The Suite Life of Zack and Cody), Marisol Nichols (Big Momma’s House 2), Madelaine Petsch (The Curse of Sleeping Beauty), Ashleigh Murray (Deidra & Laney Rob a Train), M├Ądchen Amick (Twin Peaks), and Luke Perry (Beverly Hills 90210). Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is also an executive producer, along with Sarah Schechter (Arrow, Blindspot, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow), and Jon Goldwater (Publisher/CEO, Archie Comics). The release contains all 13 gripping episodes from the first season, and includes new bonus content, and never-before-seen deleted scenes, and a gag reel. Riverdale: The Complete First Season is priced to own at $39.99 SRP. Riverdale: The Complete First Season is also available to own on Digital HD via purchase from digital retailers.

*Source: Nielsen National TV View Live + 7 Day Ratings, excluding repeats, specials; 16-17 Season To-Date = 9/19/16-1/29/17

Riverdale: The Complete First Season will also be available on Blu-rayTM courtesy of Warner Archive Collection. The Blu-rayTM release includes all bonus features on the DVD and is also arriving August 15, 2017. Warner Archive Blu-ray releases are found at Amazon.com and all online retailers.

Based on the characters from Archie Comics, Riverdale gives a subversive take on small-town life. Things aren’t always what you expect in Riverdale. As a new school year begins, the town is reeling from the tragic death of high school golden boy Jason Blossom. The summer’s events made all-American teen Archie Andrews realize that he wants to pursue a career in music, but his fractured friendship with Jughead Jones, and Josie McCoy’s focus on her own band leaves Archie without a mentor. Meanwhile, girl-next-door Betty Cooper is not ready to reveal her true feelings for Archie, and new student, Veronica Lodge, has an undeniable spark with Betty’s crush. And then there’s Cheryl Blossom, Riverdale’s queen bee, who stirs up trouble amongst Archie, Betty and Veronica. But is Cheryl hiding something about the mysterious death of her twin brother, Jason? Riverdale may look like a quiet, sleepy town, but there’s so much more to the story.

“Riverdale is full of nostalgic Archie elements, but this all-new series brings viewers mystery, seduction, and corruption; and would probably make the original gang blush," said Rosemary Markson, WBHE Senior Vice President, Television Marketing. "We’re thrilled to offer fans this dark, subversive pleasure – along with exclusive DVD and Blu-ray bonus content - just in time for the second season premiere on The CW."

05.19.2017 - The Jedi’s Greatest Warrior Charges Into Battle – Marvel Comics Announces STAR WARS: JEDI OF THE REPUBLIC – MACE WINDU #1!

Matt Owens and Denys Cowan bring you an all-new tale about Mace Windu
                                                                                                              
New York, NY—May 18, 2017—The Jedi have always been the galaxy’s peacekeepers…but with the Clone Wars on the horizon, all that is about to change. This August, writer Matt Owens (Elektra) will team with artist Denys Cowan (NighthawkCaptain America/Black Panther: Flags of Our Fathers) to unveil the exciting story of one of the Jedi’s greatest warriors in STAR WARS: JEDI OF THE REPUBLIC – MACE WINDU #1!

One of the most accomplished and storied members of the Jedi High Council, his wisdom and combat prowess are legendary. Now, in this new story, readers will get to see Mace Windu lead his Jedi into battle…and face the ultimate test of leadership!

“No matter how well trained for battle the Jedi are, having to actually put those skills to use is another thing entirely. The preferred tools of the Jedi are diplomacy, harmony, education, peace. Now they find themselves leading troops on battlefields across the galaxy,” said series writer Matt Owens. “They’re going to have a lot of thoughts about this. Is this really the way to peace? Is this the position I should be taking? Is this really the path the Jedi should be walking down. Doubt is understandable, but what each individual does with that doubt is very telling of who they are and where they will end up.”

Don’t be surprised if you see familiar faces of fan favorites, which Owens promises “will feel like an organic part of the tapestry of the Star Wars universe.” This August, May the Force Be With You when Marvel releases STAR WARS: JEDI OF THE REPUBLIC – MACE WINDU #1, available wherever comics are sold!

05.19.2017 - It’s all out Mutant Mayhem as Marvel’s WEAPONS OF MUTANT DESTRUCTION Begins this June -- Your First Look at the New Crossover!

WEAPONS OF MUTANT DESTRUCTION: ALPHA #1 – In Stores June 21st!

New York, NY—May 18, 2017 —The Weapon X program is back! From writer Greg Pak (Weapon X, Totally Awesome Hulk) comes an all-new crossover between WEAPON Xand TOTALLY AWESOME HULK, kicking off this June with WEAPONS OF MUTANT DESTRUCTION: ALPHA #1!

For years, the Weapon X Program has engineered the deadliest mutant killers on planet Earth, it was thought to be decommissioned. Now, the Weapon X program is deadlier than ever and under the leadership of its mysterious new director, has a new mission – exterminate all mutants! On their hit-list some of the deadliest mutants the Marvel Universe has ever known.  However, the key to achieving their master plan of new mutant massacre is missing one vital target -- Amadeus Cho, the Totally Awesome Hulk!

“The heroes and villains who have come together to battle the new Weapon X include some of Marvel's most ruthless killers, trackers, and hand-to-hand combatants with Logan, Sabretooth, Domino, Warpath, and Lady Deathstrike,” said series writer Greg Pak. “But to stop Weapon X, our team needs the brains and brawn of Amadeus Cho, a.k.a. the Totally Awesome Hulk. The trick is that Amadeus's cocky optimism might put him on a collision course with his own ruthless teammates. The sheer visceral fun comes from the massive mayhem of the world's most lethal X-Men cutting loose alongside the Hulk with the fate of all mutantkind in the balance."

Amide the already growing body count and the devastating trail of devastation, another mystery is growing, that of Weapon X’s mysterious new “Batch H” experiment.

“Batch H is the final step, the big, terrifying climax of everything that Weapon X has been working towards since our series began,” continues Pak.  “And if they succeed, mutants will never face a more perfect predator or more implacable enemy!”

Be there on June 21st when WEAPONS OF MUTANT DESTRUCTION: ALPHA #1 kicks off and continues all summer long and be sure to pick up TOTALLY AWESOME HULK #19 and WEAPON X #4 for the prelude chapters in comic shops everywhere and don’t miss any part of this thrilling crossover!
