Bluray Tuesday returns! Some interesting releases are out for today. Scream Factory is releasing Evolution, which I missed on its limited run in theaters but it looks very interesting. I'll check it out really soon for sure. Robocop 2 and Robocop 3 get a new re-scan from Scream Factory and are being released as apart of their collector's edition line, which means all new bonus material. If you like psychological thrillers and murder mysteries there is a new one hitting shelves starring Patrick Wilson and Jessica Beil called A Kind of Murder. I just saw trailer for this recently and it looked really good. I actually had to skip past it so I didn't spoil anything. Trailers these days show the whole film including the twists. As for the bigger releases, this week we get Assassin's Creed starring Michael Fassbender. This film is based on the popular video game series. I've heard mixed reviews on this one and will probably check out in the near future. If you are into steelbook releases, the Assassin's Creed steelbook will be a Best Buy exclusive this week. Best Buy is also releasing an exclusive steelbook for family film Sing which also hits stores today. So what will you be buying, renting or just skipping this week? let us know in the comments. Until next week!
