Bluray Tuesday is back for week three of 2016. Lighter week this time compared to the first two weeks. Shout Factory releases The Guardian for the first time on Bluray, loaded with new bonus features. 1986's Nightmare Weekend is also out for the first time on Bluray, this is one I'm interesting in checking out. Main films released today are Everest and Straight Outta Compton. Target will have an exclusive steelbook packaging for Straight Outta Compton that I will definitely add to my collection. Last but not least sees the release of Syfy channel's new series 12 Monkeys season one on Bluray, so you can get caught up before its second season, which airs soon.
