Back in December, DC Entertainment announced that our ongoing monthly themed variant cover program for March would showcase variants for ten of DC Comics’ most popular Batman and Superman titles. The variants are to be polybagged with a Batman v Superman theme, concealing stunning cover artwork by the comic industry’s most talented artists!Read more »
March’s Batman v Superman polybagged comics will follow a format similar to December’s Harley’s Little Black Book variant program, where three different versions of each variant were printed in equal quantity. All ten upcoming Batman v Superman comics will also have three versions, but this time they’ll be published in full color, fade and character spotlight.
What’s that look like? The first of these top-secret images is now ready—the art for Rafael Grampá's variant cover to DETECTIVE COMICS #50! Check it out!

Part singing. Part dancing. All COP.Read more »
Steven Bochco (Hill Street Blues, NYPD Blue) produces another bold take on the police procedural genre with the provocative Cop Rock. The short-lived cult TV series will finally be released on DVD from Shout! Factory on May 17, 2016, presenting all 11 episodes in order as originally aired. This release comes complete with new interviews with Steven Bochco and Anne Bobby.
Combining the gritty, character-driven drama Bochco fans expect with flourishes from musical theatre (including songs composed by Grammy, Emmy, and Oscar winner Randy Newman), Cop Rock followed the lives of detectives and officers who didn’t just walk the beat…but had the moves to keep a beat as well!
Academy Award winners Alan Arkin, Diane Keaton, and Marisa Tomei team up to rediscover the power of love across every generation in Love the Coopers. The heart-warming comedy that reminds audiences what family is all about also stars Golden Globe winner John Goodman, Ed Helms, Jake Lacy, Anthony Mackie, Amanda Seyfried, June Squibb, and Olivia Wilde.
When four generations of the Cooper clan gather for a reunion, a series of unexpected visitors and unlikely events turn the night upside down—leading the Coopers toward a joyful rediscovery of family bonds and the magic of love.

Anchor Bay Entertainment and The Weinstein Company are proud to announce the home entertainment release of CAROL—one of the most critically acclaimed films of 2015, from director Todd Haynes and starring Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett and Academy Award nominee Rooney Mara.
Adapted from Patricia Highsmith’s seminal novel The Price of Salt, CAROL follows two women from very different backgrounds who find themselves in an unexpected love affair in 1950s New York. As conventional norms of the time challenge their undeniable attraction, an honest story emerges to reveal the resilience of the heart in the face of change. A young woman in her 20s, Therese Belivet (Rooney Mara), is a clerk working in a Manhattan department store and dreaming of a more fulfilling life when she meets Carol (Cate Blanchett), an alluring woman trapped in a loveless, convenient marriage. As an immediate connection sparks between them, the innocence of their first encounter dims and their connection deepens. While Carol breaks free from the confines of marriage, her husband (Kyle Chandler) begins to question her competence as a mother as her involvement with Therese and close relationship with her best friend Abby (Sarah Paulson) come to light.
All relationships have issues, but Woo-jin's identity crisis is a new one - in fact, it's a new one every day.
Every morning, Woo-jin wakes up in a different body. His age, gender, and nationality may change, but the one constant in his life is E-soo - the woman he loves. She knows his secret, and loves him anyway. With every transformation, Woo-jin has to figure out how to return to his own body and reunite with Yi-soo.
The surprise sleeper hit of Cannes, THE BEAUTY INSIDE is a body-hopping romantic comedy that asks the question - where does love begin?
