'The Fines Hours' on Blu-rayWalt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has announced that The Finest Hours will be available to own on Digital HD, Disney Movies Anywhere and Blu-ray/DVD on May 24, 2016 (now available for pre-order).

In 1952, a massive winter storm strikes off the coast of Cape Cod, ripping a T-2 oil tanker in half and trapping more than 30 sailors inside its rapidly sinking stern. When word of the disaster reaches the U.S. Coast Guard, four men led by Captain Bernie Webber (Chris Pine) set out in a 12-seat boat on a daring mission to rescue the stranded men, braving freezing cold, 60-foot waves and hurricane-force winds, and guided by Webber’s vow that ‘We all live, or we all die.’ Packed with thrilling, larger-than-life action and anchored in a belief in the strength of the human spirit, The Finest Hours is a triumph.

‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Blu-ray Art Materializes as Pre-Order Vanishes


'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Blu-raySeveral days ago, we noted on Twitter that Walmart had begun accepting pre-orders for Star Wars: The Force Awakens with a dummy release date of 12/31/16. While we accept that Walmart may do this type of pre-order often, we rarely see them do so with Disney titles without a semi-solid release date. Apparently their system can’t handle the ability to accept pre-orders without a release date like Amazon does and given that the title is such a hot seller, we can’t argue the temptation.
