In announcement news today, 20th Century Fox has set The November Man for Blu-ray and DVD release on 11/15. The films stars Pierce Brosnan. That’s followed by the Fox Searchlight titles Calvary and I Origins on 12/9. The November Man seems to have no extras. Calvary will include 4 featurettes (Behind the Scenes, The Role of a Good Priest, A Matter of Faith, and A Father & His Daughter).

And finally, Cinedigm has set the anime title Welcome to the Space Show for release on Blu-ray and DVD on 11/11. I’m kind of looking forward to this one. I’ve heard it described as ‘Ghibli-esque.’
Speaking of Studio Ghibli, the studio’s latest animated feature film, The Tale of The Princess Kaguya, is going to start its limited run in theaters in the U.S. on Friday (10/17). It’s supposedly director Isao Takahata last film and has been getting very strong reviews thus far.
All right, here’s a whole bunch of cover artwork (with Amazon pre-order links if available) for the titles mentioned above, along with the just released final artwork for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles...
