New Release Tuesday: Rio, Soul Surfer, The Beaver and more!

This week sees the release of 15 new titles available to view from the comfort of your own home!



Rio – RIO is an animated feature from the makers of the Ice Age films. Set in the magnificent city of Rio de Janeiro and the lush rain forest of Brazil, this comedy-adventure centers on Blu, a rare macaw who thinks he is the last of his kind. When Blu discovers there’s another – and that she’s a she – he leaves the comforts of his cage in small town Minnesota and heads to Rio. But it’s far from love at first sight between the domesticated and flight-challenged Blu and the fiercely independent, high-flying female, Jewel. Available beginning August 2 to own in SD!


Soul Surfer – Bethany Hamilton, a champion surfer, has a tragic shark attack which leads to her having her left arm amputated. She fights through this tragedy and eventually gets back to surfing. Available beginning August 2 to rent and own in SD, HD, and HDX!


The Beaver – Walter, once a successful and happy family man, has hit rock bottom. But, in his darkest hour, he finds a rather unusual savior: a beaver hand-puppet that takes over Walter’s life in an attempt to change things for the better. Jodie Foster directs and co-stars with Mel Gibson in a film critics call “bold,” “complex” and “funny.” Available beginning August 5 to rent and own in SD, HD, and HDX!

    I would have liked to get Rio for purchase in HDX……animated films like this should only be seen in HD…..I did buy the Beaver in HDX, though…..Studios that allow purchases in HDX will get my $$$….
