Up first is the mythical action adventure remake Clash of the Titans. The release comes loaded with extras, including deleted scenes, an alternate ending and behind-the-scenes stunt work. Also in the action genre this week is Repo Men starring Jude Law and Forest Whitaker as childhood friends and former soldiers who have violent tendencies.
If you're looking for a little Al Pacino action, the 2002 thriller Insomnia is out now on Blu-ray. The seasoned actor plays a cop investigating a murder in a small Alaskan town when he's plagued by, you guessed it, the inability to sleep. If you want to sink your teeth into a full series, try the first season of the BBC show Being Human. The series proves vampires and werewolves can entice a wider audience than just teenage girls, and revolves around a trio of supernatural roommates living in Bristol, England.
Lastly, there are two new releases that fall into the animation category, but they're very different. First is Animating Reality: A Collection of Short Documentaries, which consists of 11 animated documentary shorts that come from all over the world. The second is sure to interest comic book fans, as Batman: Under the Red Hood is a darker interpretation of the well-known superhero, presented in a style that combines anime with film noir/art deco.
