Robocop, True Blood

New DVD/VOD Tuesday, June 3


Robocop - SONY
  • Sony
  • Robocop

In the remake of the ’80s classic, a future Detroit policeman (Joel Kinnaman) gets shot up on the job and then reassembled by OmniCorp as the half-man/half-machine Robocop. Likewise, the dark humor has been replaced with better effects. (Sony)

True Blood: Season 6
Louisiana declares war on vampires, Billith (Stephen Moyer) rises and Sookie (Anna Paquin) faces off against her parents’ killer as Tru Blood and our patience with this nonsense begin to run low. Only one more season and it’s over! (HBO)

The day before his wedding, a retired criminal finds himself on the hook for 20 kilos of stolen mob cocaine. No sooner than you can say “one last job,” he has 24 hours to save his fiancee. Or not—there’s plenty of coke-loving fish in the sea. (Music Box)

In the Blood
When her husband is kidnapped on their Caribbean honeymoon, a woman with mad MMA skills (Gina Carano) investigates the conspiracy and then beats the living hell out of those responsible (which inevitably includes Danny Trejo). (Anchor Bay)

Super Duper Alice Cooper
The combination documentary/rock opera (doc opera?) that tells the true-ish story of Alice Cooper through archival footage, animation, general depravity and chaos—like there’s any other way to tell an Alice Cooper story. (Universal)
