With four times the resolution of Full HD and High Dynamic Range (HDR) that delivers the brightest, most vivid and realistic color and greatest contrast, “The Hunger Games,” “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” and “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1” 4K Ultra HD Combo Packs will each be available for the suggested retail price of $22.99 and “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2” 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack will be available for the suggested retail price of $42.99.
One day, a street’s residents all receive an anonymous postcard through their front doors bearing a simple message: “We want what you have.” Who is behind the anonymous hate campaign? And what do they want? As the mystery of the postcards deepens, interweaving stories reveal lives filled with love and loss, fear and greed, fortune and envy, and at its heart, family and home. “Capital” is available on DVD Tuesday Nov. 8, and is based on John Lanchester’s best-selling novel. The British TV series stars Toby Jones (“Detectorists,” “The Hunger Games”), Gemma Jones (“Harry Potter” films), and Rachael Stirling (“Detectorists,” “The Bletchley Circle”). The DVD includes all four episodes plus behind-the-scenes featurettes. The SRP is $34.99. It also is available on Acorn TV.
Set in a world centuries from now, AMC’s “Into the Badlands: The Complete First Season” focuses on the spiritual journey of Sunny (Wu) and M.K. (Aramis Knight), a teenage boy who harbors a unique ability, and their growing relationship as teacher and student. Both discover their true purpose and decide to explore what lies beyond the borders of the Badlands, but as their Baron Quinn continues to battle against his own family as well as his rival Baron The Widow, Sunny and M.K.’s journey to a more peaceful existence seems further out of reach.
Available on Blu-ray and DVD Tuesday Nov. 8, “Into the Badlands” includes featurettes delving deeper into the world of the Badlands, the making of the fight scenes, the characters of the series, the digital comic and more. The Blu-ray and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $49.99 and $39.98, respectively.
In addition to Wu and Knight, “Into the Badlands” stars Marton Csokas (“The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King”) as Quinn, Oliver Stark (“Luther”) as Ryder; Emily Beecham (“28 Weeks Later”) as Widow, Orla Brady (“Dr. Who”) as Lydia, Sarah Bolger (“Once Upon a Time”) as Jade, Ally Ioannides (“Parenthood”) as Tilda and Madeleine Mantock (“Edge of Tomorrow”) as Veil. “Into the Badlands” Season 2 is scheduled to return to AMC in 2017.
