Walt Disney Pictures presents Tangled, one of the most hilarious, hair-raising tales ever told. When the kingdom’s most wanted–and most charming–bandit Flynn Rider (voiced by Zachary Levi) hides out in a mysterious tower, he’s taken hostage by Rapunzel (voiced by Mandy Moore), a beautiful and feisty tower-bound teen with 70 feet of magical, golden hair.

Flynn’s curious captor, in search of a ticket out of the tower in which she’s been locked for many years, strikes a deal with the handsome thief. The unlikely duo sets off on an action-packed escapade, complete with a super-cop horse, an over-protective chameleon and a gruff gang of pub thugs. Tangled is a story of adventure, heart, humor and hair–lots of hair.

Tangled is released on Blu-ray (£15.93), 3D Blu-ray (£17.99) and DVD (£11.97).

True Blood Season 3

In Bon Temps, everyone has something to hide. But when new threats emerge, no one can conceal the secrets of their past.

After Sookie discovers that Bill has been kidnapped, she heads to Mississippi where she becomes entangled in a world ruled by a pack of vicious werewolves and the powerful Vampire King, Russell Edgington. There, her powers resurface and she learns that Bill may not be trusted. Eric is also drawn to the King’s domain to settle an old score; Tara dives deep into turmoil; Jason falls for a mysterious woman; Lafayette can’t avoid love or demons; Jessica sharpens her vampire skills; and Sam uncovers the truth about his birth family.

It all leads up to the revelation of the series… Sookie’s true identity.
