New Release Tuesday: What’s New on Blu-Ray

Tuesdays are always pretty exciting, because as you may know, new Blu-Ray releases hit the shelves of your local retail store as well as the virtual shelves of online retailers like Amazon.com. Sorting out what’s hot and what’s not, that’s a bit of a chore so I’ve put together a brief synopsis of the notable releases for Tuesday, March 1st.

Available on Blu-Ray Today:

127 Hours Starring James Franco and Kate Mara
Love and Other Drugs Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway, Judy Greer and Oliver Platt
Burlesque Starring Cher and Christina Aguilera
Faster Starring Dwayne Johnson and Billy Bob Thornton
Pirates of the Caribbean Trilogy (7-disc set) Starring Johnny Depp, Kiera Knightly
Out of Sight Starring George Clooney and Jennifer Lopez
Cannes Man Starring Seymore Cassel, Francesco Quinn, Johnny Depp

Wondering what’s releasing next week? Hit the jump for more of my picks for flicks hitting Blu-Ray on Tuesday, March 8th as well as some special deals and promos on this week’s new releases available only through Best Buy retail locations.

The Walking Dead Season 1 Starring Andrew Lincoln, Jon Bernthal, Laurie Holden
The Next Three Days Starring Liam Neeson and Russell Crowe
Excalibur Starring Liam Neeson, Patrick Stewart, Gabriel Byrne and Nigel Terry
Inside Job Starring Matt Damon
Exit Through the Gift Shop Starring Banksy, Thierry Guetta and Shepard Fairey

Some notable deals on 3/1 releases can be had at Best Buy starting today. Here’s a quick run-down:

• Walt Disney’s Diamond Edition of Bambi on Blu-Ray is $10 off  ($12.99 vs. $22.99) with a special coupon located here.
• You can also get a collectible Bambi lunchbox for $4.99 with your Blu-Ray purchase.
• Buy the Pirates of the Caribbean Trilogy and get a free movie ticket with purchase.
• Buy both 127 Hours and Love and Other Drugs on Blu-Ray and get $10 off your purchase.
• And finally, one of the uh, stranger promos I’ve seen lately: buy Burlesque on Blu-Ray and get a free corset. Probably not very useful for the gentlemen out there, but perhaps this is more about the ladies? I wouldn’t know.

And there you have it.  As for myself? ‘127 Hours’ and that kick-ass Pirates trilogy are must-own films. Be sure to let us know in the comments section what flicks you plan on picking up this week.
