Planet 51 on Blu-ray and DVD, Plus More
From Troy Duffy, writer and director of The Boondock Saints, comes the much anticipated sequel to the tough, stylized cutting edge saga of the MacManus brothers (Norman Reedus, Sean Patrick Flanery). The two have been in deep hiding with their father, Il Duce (Billy Connolly), in the quiet valleys of Ireland, far removed from their former vigilante lives. When word comes that a beloved priest has been killed by sinister forces from deep within the mob, the brothers return to Boston to mount a violent and bloody crusade to bring justice to those responsible. With a new partner in crime (Clifton Collins Jr., Star Trek) and a sexy FBI operative (Julie Benz, TV's “Dexter”) hot on their trail…the Saints are back!
The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day was written and directed by Troy Duffy from a story by Troy Duffy & Taylor Duffy. Chris Brinker and Don Carmody produced with Lloyd Segan and Rob Fried serving as executive producers.

NARUTO: SHIPPUDEN, VOL. 7 on DVD
From VIZ Media:
Today marks the release of Naruto Shippuden DVD volume 7! This set includes episodes 27-30, and as always, can be viewed in uncut dubbed and subtitled versions. This particular collection concludes the epic battle between Sasori, Granny Chiyo and Sakura (only fitting since we're celebrating Sakura's birthday this month), followed by a showdown between Kakashi and Deidara.
In their battle with Sasori, Granny Chiyo and Sakura must make life-or-death choices to bring the puppet master down. Outside the Akatsuki hideout, Team Guy have fought the copies of themselves to the point of exhaustion, but Rock Lee's plan sets fire to their fighting spirits. Meanwhile, Naruto and Kakashi have caught up to Deidara, and Kakashi prepares to unleash his newest jutsu--the Mangekyo Sharingan!
