DVD and Blu-ray Releases for August 2nd, 2011

August 2nd, 2011

Featured Blu-ray review: Spy Kids Trilogy

July 30th, 2011

With the theatrical release of Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World just around the corner, there's no better time to release the original Spy Kids Trilogy on Blu-ray.

The shaded area represents the expected performance range for a film, based on its opening weekend box office. 95% of films fall within the shaded area. If a film trends towards the top end of the shaded area, it has good legs compared to the average film; if it trends towards the bottom end of the shaded area, it has poor legs. The predictive area is based on movies from the past 5 years.
