New Movie Tuesday

Here are the DVD releases for next Tuesday, 7 July 2015:

'71
A British soldier is caught behind enemy lines in Belfast 1971. Unable to tell friend from foe, and increasingly wary of his own comrades, he must survive the night alone and find his way to safety through a disorientating, alien and deadly landscape.
Bitten - The Complete Second Season
Elena Michaels, the world's only female werewolf, and the Pack team up with a coven of witches to fight against a mysterious foe determined to claim dominion over the Otherworld.
Dawn of Humanity
Nova and National Geographic present exclusive access to an astounding discovery of ancient fossil human ancestors. Deep in a South African cave, a special team of experts has brought to light an unprecedented wealth of fossils belonging to a crucial gap in the record of our origins that spans the transition between the ape-like australopithecines (such as the famous Lucy) and the earliest members of the human family.
Dick Cavett's Vietnam
Reexamines the Vietnam War and its impact on America through the prism of interviews conducted by the iconic host of The Dick Cavett Show from 1968-75. Those interviews, combined with archival footage, network news broadcasts, and newly filmed interviews with Cavett and other experts, provide fresh insight and perspective on this controversial chapter of American history.
First Peoples
200,000 years ago we took our first steps in Africa. Today there are seven billion of us living across the planet. How did our ancestors spread from continent to continent? This is a global detective story, featuring the latest archaeological discoveries and genetic research. On each continent, we track down the earliest members of our species, Homo sapiens. Who were these First Peoples? What drove them to the ends of the earth?
For the Emperor
Yi-Hwan is a former professional baseball player. He was involved in fixing games and lost everything. Gang boss Sang-Ha runs a money lending business and a gambling location. He makes Yi-Hwan work for him. Meanwhile, Yi-Hwan falls for bar owner Yeon-Soo.
The Jinx - The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst
A groundbreaking documentary series sheds new light on real-estate icon, Robert Durst, while unraveling one of the most notorious unsolved crimes in New York history.
Kill Me Three Times
A jaded, somewhat demented, hit-man intertwines three tales of murder, mayhem, blackmail, and revenge when the assassin realizes he isn't the only one with his target in the crosshairs.
The Killers
Ernest Hemingway's simple but gripping short tale is a model of economical storytelling. Two directors adapted it into unforgettably virile features: that was intended for television but deemed too violent for home audiences and released theatrically instead. The first is poetic and shadowy, the second direct and harsh as daylight, but both get at the heart of Hemingway's existential classic.
Poldark
Ross Poldark rides again in a swashbuckling new adaptation of the hit series that helped launch Masterpiece in the 1970s. Captain Poldark is a redcoat who returns to Cornwall after the American Revolution and finds that his fighting days are far from over.
Woman in Gold
Sixty years after she fled Vienna during World War II, an elderly Jewish woman, Maria Altmann, starts her journey to retrieve family possessions seized by the Nazis, among them Klimt's famous painting Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I. Together with her inexperienced but plucky young lawyer Randy Schoenberg, she embarks upon a major battle which takes them all the way to the heart of the Austrian establishment and the U.S. Supreme Court.
WWE Monday Night War Vol. 1 - Shots Fired
A twenty-episode documentary series that follows the stories in and out of the ring of both Vince McMahon's WWE and Ted Turner's WCW, as they battle head to head in a primetime power struggle that forever changed the face of sports entertainment. This first volume will cover the first ten episodes in this documentary, along with matches and moments from that era.
Yu-Gi-Oh!: Season 2
It's year two at Duel Academy, and this semester is more intense than ever! Jaden somehow passed his finals, so he's now back with his friends to continue his training at the world's most prestigious dueling school! But it's not all about classes and textbooks. This year is filled with one high-stakes battle after another as Jaden faces all new rivals like Pro League All-Star Aster Phoenix, dino duelist Tyranno Hassleberry and the sinister Sartorius!

Bleach Uncut Set 25
A year has passed since Ichigo lost his Soul Reaper powers and resumed the life of a normal teenager. But those ordinary days come to an end when Ichigo meets a mysterious man named Kugo Ginjo, who offers to help him get his Soul Reaper powers back-and gives him only a day to decide! Ichigo is dead set against it, until Uryu is injured by an unknown attacker. Ichigo, powerless to help, turns to Ginjo and is introduced to the group Xcution, whose Fullbring powers Ichigo must face in battle.
Caring for Mom & Dad
Americans are living longer than ever before. Seventy-five million baby boomers are entering their retirement years at a rate of 10,000 a day. The United States is not prepared for this unprecedented demographic shift, and the question we're now all facing is: who will care for this aging population when they can no longer care for themselves?
Children of Giant
Explore the dramatic story behind the making of the film and meet the surviving cast, crew, and locals who participated in the production, many of whose lives mirrored the film's controversial themes of racism and segregation, as they celebrate the film that remains as powerful and relevant today as when it was first released.
Deli Man
Jewish culture reflects the heart of a vital ethnic history. As that culture continues to shift and adapt alongside mainstream America, delicatessen food, as its name suggests, remains a beloved communal delicacy. In Houston, Texas, third-generation deli man Ziggy Gruber has built arguably the finest delicatessen restaurant in the U.S. His story augmented by the stories of iconic delis such as Katz's, 2nd Avenue Deli, Nate 'n Al, Carnegie, and the Stage, embodies a tradition indelibly linked to its savory, nostalgic foods.
The Great Math Mystery
Astrophysicist Mario Livio, along with a colorful cast of mathematicians, physicists, and engineers, follow math from Pythagoras to Einstein and beyond, all leading to the ultimate riddle: Is math an invention or a discovery? Humankind's clever trick, or the language of the universe? Join Nova for a mathematical mystery tour, a provocative exploration of math's astonishing power across the centuries.
If You Build It
Follows designer-activist Emily Pilloton and Matthew Miller to rural Bertie County, the poorest in North Carolina, where they work with local high school students to help transform both their community and their lives. Living on credit and grant money and fighting a change-resistant school board, Pilloton and Miller lead their students through a year-long, full-scale design and build project that does much more than just teach basic construction skills.
Mythbusters Collection 12
Fill three discs with twelve episodes of crazy science mayhem. Dump the two hosts, Adam and Jamie, on a deserted island, with nothing but duct tape to survive. Mix in a fire-and-ice showdown, complete with a homemade flamethrower. Add an eyebrow-raising Battle of the Sexes. Test some wacky theories, like 'Will super-gluing yourself to the seat work better than a seatbelt?' And 'Can bubble-wrap really break a multistory fall?'
Pound of Flesh
In China to donate his kidney to his dying niece, former black-ops agent Deacon awakes the day before the operation to find he is the latest victim of organ theft. Stitched up and pissed-off, Deacon descends from his opulent hotel in search of his stolen kidney and carves a blood-soaked path through the darkest corners of the city. The clock is ticking for his niece and with each step he loses blood.
Rebelde
The 'Elite Way School' is an exclusive, internationally recognized prep school where teenagers of the upper crust of society receive excellent schooling and can establish social connections that will ensure them a successful future.

In this inspiring 90-minute documentary, filmmaker David Grubin - the son of a general practitioner - takes his camera across America from Maine to Alaska to introduce us to a diverse group of doctors, nurses, and health care professionals who are transforming the way we receive our medical care: lowering costs by placing the patient at the center of their practice.
Seventh Son

Can Mack and Brady find the magic to get the kids home and get their own romance back on track before it's too late?

Each leg, teams have just 60 hours to make it from start to finish, surviving off the land with only the gear on their backs. No GPS. No phone. No mercy.

Esmeralda, whom everybody calls 'The Stray Cat,' grew up in a suburban slum under miserable conditions. Ever since she was a little girl she has lived with Dona Rita, who exploits her by sending her out on the streets to beg in order to earn her keep. As a child, she became friends with Pablo, a wealthy child who cares for her and tries to help her behind his mother's back.
The Lazarus Effect
The film follows a group of medical students who discover a way to bring dead patients back to life. After a successful, yet unsanctioned, trial on a newly deceased animal, the team is ready to unveil their breakthrough to the world. When the dean of their university learns of their underground experiments, their project is unexpectedly shut down and their materials confiscated.
The Newsroom
In the wake of the Genoa debacle, the team decides to use caution in reporting a major breaking story. Neal is contacted by an anonymous source in possession of stolen government documents; Sloan looks to solve a takeover puzzle. When the team attends the White House Correspondents' Dinner in Washington, Mac makes an unexpected acquaintance and Will gets a surprise.
Pantani: The Accidental Death of a Cyclist
One man had no limits. This is the epic story of the rise and fall of Marco Pantani, sporting hero. Less than five years after winning the Tour De France 'clean,' he was found dead in mysterious circumstances. This is the tragic tale of how a young cyclist became trapped in the organized crime of professional sport gone bad.
Run All Night
Brooklyn mobster and prolific hit man Jimmy Conlon, once known as The Gravedigger, has seen better days.

But when Jimmy's estranged son, Mike, becomes a target, Jimmy must make a choice between the crime family he chose and the real family he abandoned long ago.
Through the Wormhole - Season 5
Exploring topics from gravity to poverty, these ten episodes set out on scientific quests for the long-sought answers to man's most puzzling questions. Does the ocean think? Is a zombie apocalypse possible? Is there such thing as a shadow universe? And just when did time begin? Quantum physicists, biologists, statisticians, neuroscientists, and more of the world's greatest minds take a synergistic approach to provide practical answers and pose even more questions.
Two and a Half Men Complete Season 12
Walden Schmidt and Alan Harper have spent another year searching for the ideal life in their Malibu beach house. In the twelfthth and final season, Alan and Walden will continue their search for true love, contentment and the meaning of life. And they may actually find a couple of those things.

In this hilarious drink-like-a-fish-out-of-water comedy, a hard-working entrepreneur travels to Europe with his two associates to close the most important business deal of their lives.

In the end, these guys gone wild might just land the deal, if they can survive the trip. Bottoms up!
The Vaccine War
Now, in 2015, measles, mumps, and whooping cough are all making a comeback. Building on years of research, this updated documentary explores both the roots of the vaccine debate, and the latest chapter in the heated controversy: Are parents who choose not to vaccinate their children putting the health of our nation at risk? This is a compelling and timely report on an issue that remains highly emotional and deeply divisive.
Welcome to Me

Wild Tales
Vulnerable in the face of a reality that shifts and suddenly turns unpredictable, the characters cross the thin line that divides civilization and barbarism. A lover's betrayal, a return to the repressed past and the violence woven into everyday encounters drive the characters to madness as they cede to the undeniable pleasure of losing control.
The Wrecking Crew
Originally made in 2008 and never released until now the film tells the story of the unsung musicians that provided the backbeat, the bottom and the swinging melody that drove many of the number one hits of the 1960s. It didn't matter if it was Nat 'King' Cole, Frank Sinatra, Nancy Sinatra, The Monkees, The Byrds or The Beach Boys, these dedicated musicians brought the flair and musicianship that made the American 'west coast sound' a dominant cultural force around the world.
WWE Payback 2015
No deed, good or bad, goes unpunished in WWE. For every action, there is payback. WWE's top Superstars seek retribution for old scores. Plus, the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and other prestigious titles are up for grabs. Last year, The Shield upended Evolution. This year, several young Superstars are hungry to make a statement at this high stakes event.
