This week’s new DVD releases: Batman v Superman, My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 and more!
We’ve got a bumper crop of new DVDs on the musicMagpie Store this week, from epic superhero battles to big fat Greek weddings. Oh, and Dolph Lundgren fighting a shark.
Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice
Although he saved the world from General Zod, a lot of people aren’t happy with Superman destroying half of Metropolis in the process – including billionaire Bruce Wayne, who moonlights as a crime-fighting bat.
With quirky billionaire Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) pulling strings behind the scenes and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) popping up too, the stage is set for Batfleck and SuperCavill to go mano-a-mano.
My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2
14 years after the original big fat Greek wedding, Toula’s marriage to Ian is on the rocks, their daughter is off to college and Toula’s parents discover they were never officially married after an admin error.
Fortunately, the pair has another big fat Greek wedding to look forward to. Will it help them get their marriage back on track?
Gotham: The Complete Second Season
The second series of the hit Batman prequel sees not-Commissioner Jim Gordon and his partner Harvey Bullock tackling some of Batman’s biggest villains, including Hugo Strange, Mr Freeze and The Penguin.
Also appearing is a young Bruce Wayne in the midst of those difficult teenage years, when you’re torn between girls and dressing up as a bat and punching people in the face.
Dolph Lundgren fights a shark. Do we need to say any more?
Just in case the prospect of Ivan Drago taking on a bull shark doesn’t immediately have you reaching for your wallet, here’s a quick synopsis: Dolph plays an ex-animal trafficker terrorised by a shark he abandoned before he was sent to prison.
Unfortunately, the shark isn’t just after Dolph and starts chowing his way through the entire town. When all hope looks lost, the town turns to Dolph because…well, he’s Dolph Lundgren. If anyone can take down a killer shark, it’s him.
Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of Death
Ashley Jensen plays PR executive Agatha in this comedic parody of the rural murder dramas popularised by Agatha Christie.
Agatha decides to move to the country after having her fill of city life. However, she soon discovers she’s moved into an episode of Midsomer Murders after a slaying at a quiche-making competition. To make matters worse, she’s the prime suspect.
The classic 1971 adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel of the same name (and half of its sequel, Catriona) gets a new DVD release.
In Kidnapped, a young Scottish heir is targeted for assassination but is saved by a rebel fighting for independence (played by Michael Caine).
A Kind of Loving
This brilliant kitchen sink drama, set in an industrial Lancashire town, receives a digital restoration on DVD and Blu-Ray.
A Kind of Loving follows an affair between draftsman Vic (Alan Bates) and typist Ingird (June Ritchie) that leads to an unexpected pregnancy and Vic grappling with new responsibilities and a relationship he isn’t totally invested in…
If you like watching aliens blow up stuff, you’ll love Interstellar Wars.
A group of aliens emerge from a giant portal behind the dark side of the moon and, as evil aliens usually do, make a beeline for Earth with an eye on enslaving us all. It’s down to a group of scientists in a secret base to stop them.
My Best Friend
If dogs are a man’s best friend, horses are a close second. My Best Friend follows a young girl called Kristen who moves from the city to her grandma’s ranch in the country. There, she meets a talking horse named Stanford who provides her with wise advice and a horsey shoulder to rely on.

Perfect for keeping the kids quiet for a couple of hours, and a nice change from endless Peppa Pig marathons too.

After some creepy occurrences, Tam calls two spiritual mediums to help – and promptly unleashes the full fury of some angry ghouls and ghosts.
