Hello, movie fan. Have you started assembling a holiday wish list for the year 2015? Well, you can start right now because a Blu-ray box set assembling the collected works of legendary animation director Hayao Miyazaki is on the way and you’re definitely going to want this one. In addition to every feature film he has directed, the set will also include various special features as well as Miyazaki’s early television work.
DVD and Blu-ray
Avengers: Age of Ultron is arriving on Blu-ray and DVD this fall and while the full list of special features hasn’t been revealed, the first look at what will be included on the disc has been revealed. More importantly, we also know what the disc will not include: a director’s cut and a new One-Shot short film.
There’s plenty of great stuff to see at the theater next month, but if you’re looking to stay in (and avoid the dreadful heat), there are also a bunch of great titles hitting DVD and Blu-ray. A handful of major releases you may have missed, as well as acclaimed indies, comedies and a couple of horror flicks are hitting shelves in August, giving you plenty to choose from. Read on for our guide to August’s new DVD and Blu-ray releases.
If you’re a huge MCU fan or you have one in your life, and you’re looking for holiday gift ideas, then Marvel’s got you covered.

What could it be?
Everyone knows that 2015 is the year that Marty McFly and Doc Brown journey to in Back to the Future Part II. While we may not have hoverboards or Jaws 19, we are getting a new 30th anniversary Blu-ray and DVD release of the Back to the Future trilogy, which isn’t a bad consolation prize. In fact, the slightly more obsessive fans have even more reason to celebrate, as the Back to the Future animated series from the early ‘90s is coming to DVD for the first time.
Back in April, Amazon sent an e-mail to customers claiming that Avengers: Age of Ultron was available for pre-order on DVD and Blu-ray and would include an “extended edition”. The online retailer quickly retracted that statement saying that nothing had been officially confirmed by Disney and/or Marvel. Now, director Joss Whedon has had his say on the upcoming Avengers 2 DVD and can confirm that there will be no extended or director’s cut of the film, mostly because he’s “super f---king lazy”.
Here’s some good news for your friends and #family: Universal has officially announced a special extended edition of Furious 7, which will arrive in stores this September. Along with a longer version of the film, you’ll also get over 90 minutes of bonus materials. That’s enough time to drink at least three Coronas. The studio has also released a trailer to get you properly revved up for the home release.
Both Arrow Season 3 and The Flash set up quite a few Legends to live up to this fall, but even with Comic-Con 2015 ahead to give us a sense of the DC dramas’ future, hungry fans await an opportunity to catch up with Oliver Queen and the Scarlet Speedster’s most recent CW capers. Enter the full description and artwork of the September Blu-ray / DVD releases for both Arrow Season 3 and The Flash’s first run!

Jurassic World just opened to a record-breaking $209 million opening weekend, but Universal Pictures doesn’t want you forgetting how much you (seemingly) loved the movie. Just five days after it hit theaters, they’ve already announced a Limited Edition Gift Set that includes a 3D Blu-ray, standard Blu-ray, DVD, Digital HD and a collectible bust that’s...actually kinda of a spoiler.
