Call it the "Circle of Life." At least that's what it seems like for some movies and franchises.
After topping the box office for a couple of weeks, Disney is releasing The Lion King on Blu-ray ($39.99 retail) for the first time and on Blu-ray 3D ($49.99), so you can enjoy Simba's adventures and the Oscar-winning music of the 1994 animated classic in all its digital glory.
The studio also has a Blu-ray 3D version of its 1991 feature Beauty and the Beast ($49.99), and the Blu-ray release of Disneynature: African Cats ($39.99), a documentary about two families of African lions.
More to 'Scream' about
Eleven years after Scream 3, writer Kevin Williamson and director Wes Craven have brought together the core of the cast — Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette — for Scream 4, another go-round at the horror franchise featuring Ghostface, the killer in the Edvard Munch- inspired mask.
Apart from a few good stabs at the foibles of our dependence on modern technology and an amusing opening — a film- within-a film bit with some famous names — 4 goes forth in pretty much the same way as its predecessors, taking out its victims slice by slice.
Scream 4 retails for $29.98 or $39.99 Blu-ray.
