From a RWBY / Justice League crossover to Jackie Chan, this week offers a variety of titles that should satiate most movie buffs, and that's just the 4K category. Troubled waters ahead though, it's blu-ray's turn to assault our wallets.
Welcome to Volume 3 Episode 47 of our weekly release guide. A look at the highlights of what's coming to disc the week of April 23rd - April 29th, as well as a look at announcements from last week.
New release first, from Warner Bros and DC Animation, Justice League x RWBY: Super Heroes & Huntsmen, Part One. Quite surprised to not see a Best Buy SteelBook on this one.
Severin Films has the general release for Accion Mutante this week.
A little Jackie Chan action with Police Story 3: Supercop from 88 Films. If you want all three films in 4K at this time you will need to import them from Eureka UK.
There's a pair of vampire releases from Indicator Series this week, The Shiver of the Vampires and Two Orphan Vampires.
Making a 4K debut, as a Best Buy Exclusive SteelBook, The Man Who Fell to Earth (1976) comes to us via LionsGate.
Criterion Collection this week offers some fresh (2022) comedy with Triangle of Sadness.
Mentioned last week as a new titles announcement, Turbine Media has got three different editions of Naked Lunch for purchase. Check out the article to see the links.
Next week, Second Sight's Picnic at Hanging Rock, Paramount makes a Deep Impact, Star Wars Steels, Wings of Desire hits domestic markets because I bought the import, and more.
Blu-ray wallet assault engages fist first with a lot of blu-ray counterparts. Justice League x RWBY: Super Heroes & Huntsmen, Part One comes via Warner Bros, Accion Mutante comes via Severin, Police Story 3: Supercop comes via 88 Films, Powerhouse/Indicator brings us The Shiver of the Vampires and Two Orphan Vampires, and Criterion Collection offers up Triangle of Sadness. Wow, that literally was every title above, minus one.
New drama from LionsGate with Jesus Revolution.
TV on disc fan? Throw some more cash at these! Cheers: The Complete Series via Paramount and CBS Television, The Green Hornet (1940), His Dark Materials: The Complete Third Season, Primal: The Complete Second Season and Star Trek: Lower Decks - Season Three.

There were no major announcements last week. Imprint Films announced their July slate which includes a peculiar release, a 4K among a blu-ray box collection, Paramount announced Mission Impossible SteelBooks, Warner Archive announced their May releases. Everything else is onesie twosie. No Avatar or Abyss announcement, just a slow week in general.
