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
Never miss a local story.
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.
