Welcome to the first installment of Watch This Now!, our weekly look at what's new on DVD, Blu-ray, and VOD.
The Wachowski/Twyker joint/flop/masterpiece "Cloud Atlas" finally comes home along with a Criterion disc for the classic Western "3:10 to Yuma"; meanwhile, with "Liz & Dick," Lindsay Lohan continues to prove that people will pay her to be in things (even if it's just for the spectacle of the actress waiting out a scene so she can do something else with her time).
Digging up more Manasume Shirow clasics, "Section23" plans to rerelease "New Dominion: Tank Police" in the middle of the hottest month while also giving the latest from Makoto Shinkai, creator of "5 Centimeters Per Second."
Want to see a high school boy be dragged into a web of blackmail, manipulation, and eeeevil? Then you might want to check out the animated psychological drama "Flowers of Evil," based on the manga from Shuzo Oshimi out later this year from Sentai Filmworks.
Director Steven Kostanski's green screen epic is hitting DVD on April 30 from Dark Sky Films and for those of you who haven't had a chance to see this post-apocalyptic action/comedy/adventure homage to the 80's featuring cyborgs, mutants, martial artists, and demons, here's all of those things.
No, not that one, the Matt Salinger Cap. You haven't heard of him? Salinger was the star of the 1990 "Captain America" from director Albert Pyun ("Cyborg," "The Sword and the Sorcerer") and the second time the Star-Spangled Avenger was in a feature. Well, in May, Shout! Factory is releasing Pyun's "Captain America" to Blu-ray for the first time with a new high-definition transfer and a new look back at the film with star Matt Salinger and director Albert Pyun--and you can get a sample of the movie in the exclusive clip up top!
South Korean director Choi Dong-Hoon might not have a name here in the States, but his last few blockbuster releases on his home turf have made him a big budget director to watch. If you're thinking about picking up Shout! Factory's disc of his martial arts comedy fantasy "Woochi: The Demon Slayer" this week, you should really check out a pair of the writer-director's hit crime films "The Thieves" and "Tazza: The High Rollers" and see his varying takes on shady and shiftless types trying to make a bad buck (and the people that want to kill them).
