Tuesday's New DVD Releases

Here are the DVD releases for next Tuesday, 1 November 2011:

The 2012 Anthology
Examines the many theories about the end of the world and looks for the possible truths behind the myths. It also reveals the many modern day methods of destruction and disaster theories from very real (nuclear arsenals) to controversial (global warming) to futuristic (nanotechnology, cyborgs, and robots).

A mysterious drifter and a young Japanese warrior arrive in a town that has been terrorized by outrageous and virulent criminals. Each is obsessed with his separate mission, and both will be guided by the wisdom of the Bartender at the Horseless Horseman Saloon. The two eventually join forces to bring down the corrupt and contemptuous reign of Nicola, the awesomely evil 'woodcutter' and his lady Alexandra, a femme fatale with a secret past.

Cars 2
Star racecar Lightning McQueen and the incomparable tow truck Mater take their friendship on the road from Radiator Springs to exciting new places when they head overseas to compete in the first-ever World Grand Prix to determine the world's fastest car. But the road to the championship is filled with plenty of potholes, detours, and hilarious surprises when Mater gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own: international espionage!

Crazy Stupid Love
Fortysomething Cal Weaver is living the dream: good job, nice house, great kids, and marriage to his high school sweetheart. So when Cal learns that she has cheated on him and wants a divorce, his 'perfect' life quickly unravels. Cal, who hasn't dated in decades, stands out as the epitome of un-smooth, so handsome player Jacob Palmer takes him on as wingman and protege.

The Great Explorers
Reveals the true stories behind some of history's most famous adventurers. Journey alongside Christopher Columbus, Marco Polo, Magellan, Lewis & Clark, Stanley & Livingstone, and many, many more. Contains beautiful on-location photography, exciting re-enactments, making-of-featurettes, additional footage, and photo galleries. These are expeditions that viewers will never forget.

How the States Got their Shape - Season 1
Why don't people from New England pronounce their 'R's? How come some Pennsylvania Amish use cell phones? How did Northern Californians get so liberal? The clues are right on the map. Brian Unger hits the road, makes irreverent observations about how people think, speak, and act, and discovers their surprising connections to geography. With its crooked lines and odd breaks, the outline of America is a puzzle to be solved. Includes the acclaimed special that inspired the series.

Rulers of the Ancient World - Tyrants
Reveals the real story behind some of the greatest (and worst) rulers that ever lived. From Caesar's legacy to the destruction of Genghis Khan, take an in-depth and varied look at the many men who helped shape the future of the world, both for the better and worst. Contains 24 programs including the Ancients Behaving Badly; and Rome: Rise and Fall of an Empire.

Snow Flower and the Secret Fan
Centuries ago, two 'sworn sisters' are isolated by their families, but stay connected through a secret language written in the folds of a white silk fan. Now, in modern-day Shanghai, their descendents must draw inspiration from the past as they struggle to maintain their own eternal bond in the face of life's complications. What unfolds are two stories, generations apart, but everlasting in their universal notion of love, hope and friendship.

In the late 1970s, Miss Wyoming Joyce McKinney became a tabloid staple when she kidnapped her former beau, a Mormon missionary, and tied him to a bed to 'deprogram' his religious beliefs - by having nonstop sex with him. Director Errol Morris follows the salacious adventures of this beauty queen with an IQ of 168, whose single-minded devotion to the man of her dreams led her across the globe, into jail, and onto the front page.

A husband and wife are kidnapped by extornionists and held for ransom. As the situation gets worse and the pressure gets higher, they begin to uncover a web of deceit and betrayal.

Water for Elephants
Against all odds, a veterinary student and a beautiful circus performer from a bygone era meet and fall in love through their shared compassion for a special elephant. But their secret romance incurs the wrath of her dangerously volatile husband.

WWE Hell in a Cell 2011
Its demonic structure can make a career-or end it. Some of the most iconic moments of the last decade have happened in Hell in a Cell-and now it's a WWE pay-per-view event!
