It looks like a slow week for movies. New DVD and Blu-ray movies this week include The Veronica Mars Movie (Kristen Bell) and Son of Batman (animated). I’m looking forward to watching Son of Batman. I’ve read the comics about Damian, who is the son of Batman. He’s has an attitude problem, but eventually becomes the new Robin even though he’s very different from the previous Robins. Read on for a summary of the new Blu-ray and DVD releases.
Blu-ray and DVD movie coming out the week of May 6, 2014
- Son of Batman
Hidden atop a secret mountain stronghold lies the League of Shadows and its fearless leader, Ra’s al Ghul. Together with his equally dangerous daughter Talia, he oversees a trained army of assassins with plans for global domination. But an uprising from within the league now threatens to shift the balance of power and sends Talia and her young son, Damian, fleeing to Gotham City. With assassins on their trail, Talia seeks the protection of Batman, who, unbeknownst to him, is the boy’s father. With his son in tow, Batman wages war against the villain Deathstroke and the League of Shadows, all while teaching his headstrong boy that one can’t fight crime by becoming a criminal. With help from Gotham’s finest, including Commissioner Gordon and Nightwing, Batman will soon discover that his son and most trusted ally are one and the same.
- The Veronica Mars Movie
On the eve of graduating law school, Veronica Mars has put Neptune and her amateur sleuthing days behind her. While interviewing at high-end New York law firms, Veronica Mars gets a call from her ex-boyfriend Logan who has been accused of murder. Veronica heads back to Neptune just to help Logan find an attorney, but when things don’t seem right with how Logan’s case is perceived and handled, Veronica finds herself being pulled back into a life she thought she had left behind.
