Looks like another slow week for DVDs this week. New DVD and Blu-ray movies out this week include Little Boy (Emily Watson, Kevin James) and Batman Unlimited: Monster Mayhem (animated).

DVDs coming out the week of August 18, 2015
Little Boy is a powerful and moving film about a little boy who is willing to do whatever it takes to bring his dad home from World War II alive. The heartwarming story will capture your heart and lift your spirits as it reveals the indescribable love a little boy has for his father and the love a father has for his son. Set in the 1940s, Little Boy is an instant cinematic classic that captures the wonder of life through the eyes of a 7-year-old little boy. Written and directed by Smithsonian Institute Award winning director Alejandro Monteverde, Little Boy highlights themes of faith, hope and love in the face of adversity.
Batman Unlimited: Monster Mayhem
It’s Halloween in Gotham. To celebrate, the city’s spookiest villains (Scarecrow, Clayface, Solomon Grundy and Silver Banshee) have all joined forces and gone on a crime spree. Batman swings into action to stop them, joined by Green Arrow, Cyborg, Nightwing and Red Robin. But it seems that the fiends are working for the clown prince of crime himself: the Joker, who has a surprise of his own – a computer virus that makes all technology laugh and obey his every command! Can the heroes stop the virus before it turns all of Gotham into Jokertown? Will Batman find a way to beat the Joker now that his trusty gadgets and vehicles have succumbed to “digital Laughter?”
