NEW YORK, NY (FOX44) – "The Muppets" take the lead on the week's new DVD’s. The family friendly 3-disc value pack includes a full digital movie soundtrack with a sing-a-long version of the Academy Award winning "Man or Muppet" song. Plus bonus features with Jason Segel, Kermit, Miss Piggy and the longest blooper reel ever made (in Muppet history, we think).
Just in time for Easter, the Russell Brand voiced "Hop” follows one little cotton-tailed drummer as he chases his rock star dreams all the way to Los Angeles. Extras on this holiday Blu-ray/DVD combo gift include a never-before-seen music-filled mini-movie.
A less kid-friendly flick, Jonah Hill is hired as "The Sitter" playing an unorthodox role model in the R-rated comedy. The gritty Hollywood retelling of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" starring Academy Award nominee Rooney Mara heads to DVD with director commentary.
Long-overdue Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman brings the spy thriller "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" along with deleted scenes. While Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet, Christoph Waltz, and John C. Reilly square off in a Roman Polanski comedy adapted from the Tony-winning Broadway play "Carnage".
And in new music, American Idol alum Casey James is releasing his self-titled debut album. Mixing blues, country, and rock, and rounding out the new releases list.
