Veronica Mars – DVD released on May 12th


Veronica Mars is a film which started life as a TV series from 2004-2007, with Kristen Bell as a high-school student, then going to college, all the while moonlighting as a private investigator. The series picked up a cult following, so when Bell and creator Rob Thomas launched a Kickstarter project last March to raise $2m to fund a movie, they achieved that in ten hours and raised $5.7m in total.

The DVD is released on May 12th, and oddly, there’s no Blu-ray release, although this low-budget film already did the rounds on March 14th on iTunes, Google Play, Sky Store, Virgin Media, BT TV, Blinkbox, Xbox Video, Playstation Store, Dixons KnowHow Movies, Wuaki and UPC in Ireland, so maybe there’s not many people left to buy it who are going to?

The DVD does feature an exclusive extra, however: By The Fans: The Making of the Veronica Mars Movie – Rob Thomas, Kristen Bell and the entire Veronica Mars cast take you from its record-breaking Kickstarter launch to the first day on set and beyond!

Also released on the same day is a DVD Complete Boxset of the entire 64-episode TV series.

Veronica Mars (Kristen Bell) has put Neptune and her amateur sleuthing days behind her on the eve of graduating law school. While interviewing at high-end law firms, Veronica gets a call from her ex-boyfriend Logan (Jason Dohring) who has been accused of murder. Veronica heads back to Neptune just to help Logan find an attorney, but when things don’t seem right with how Logan’s case is perceived and handled, Veronica finds herself being pulled back into a life she thought she had left behind.

Written and directed by series creator Rob Thomas, Veronica Mars stars original show cast members Kristen Bell (House of Lies, Forgetting Sarah Marshall), Jason Dohring (The Ringer), Read more »

Written and directed by A.D. Calvo, the cast features Inbar Lavi, Steven Grayhm, Eddie Hassell, Holland Roden and John Lee Ames, so there’s no-one famous in there, but it looks like a film that’s well worth watching.

House of Dust hasn’t yet got a UK release date, but it seems only to be coming out for the home market in the US, so the same will most likely follow in the UK.

Octodad Dadliest Catch – PS4 Launch Trailer

Octodad Dadliest Catch is a bizarre new game from Young Horses, Inc, and a sequel to 2010′s freeware game, Octodad. You control Octodad in completing chores typical of the mundane suburban father, but complicated by the fact that he is an octopus in disguise.

Same as the first game, Dadliest Catch requires the player to control the protagonist, Octodad, as he maneuvers his way through increasingly complex challenges all while attempting to hide the fact that he is a cephalopod in human clothing. The player can control one of two sets of tentacles, mimicking arms and legs, switching between the two with a single button.

A multiplayer co-op mode is also available where up to four players control four limbs. Most of the game’s humour derives from the slapstick stumbling that results from attempting to move around in a normal fashion and complete mundane activities without knocking people over.

I had absolutely no idea what was going on in Octodad Dadliest Catch, but if it’s your bag, then it’s available from this Wednesday.
