RT on DVD & Blu-Ray: Bridesmaids Arrives on Home Video
Well, after a couple of decent weeks of home video releases, it looks like we've hit another speed bump this week. The biggest release is the hit comedy Bridesmaids, but beyond that, there isn't much to report in terms of brand new releases. We did decide to include on direct-to-video movie, just because the idea of Bruce Willis and 50 Cent doing a film together was sort of amusing. Aside from that, we've got another big Disney classic moving to Blu-ray, an iconic Audrey Hepburn movie, and a couple of films by French New Wave pioneer Claude Chabrol that are getting the Criterion Collection treatment. This week is a bit better for those interested in TV (season collections for shows like Modern Family, both the new and old series of Hawaii Five-O, the miniseries The Kennedys, Law & Order, etc), but overall, there just wasn't a whole lot to choose from.

Box Office Wrapup: Thor Finishes On Top Of Bridesmaids
The super hero adventure Thor held firmly to the number one spot in its second weekend with a solid hold while the raunchy comedy Bridesmaids scored an impressive debut in second place. April's Brazil-set blockbusters Fast Five and Rio both remained in the top five thanks to good legs while the new 3D thriller Priest debuted in fourth with moderate results. Overall ticket sales were only slightly off from last year's red hot frame.

Critics Consensus: Priest is Without a Prayer
This week at the movies, we?ve got a vampire slayer (Priest, starring Paul Bettany and Karl Urban) and nuptial nuttiness (Bridesmaids, starring Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph). What do the critics have to say? When the armies of evil are on the march, who you gonna call? A priest should do the trick, especially if his name is Priest, and is more adept at dishing out pain than serving communion. Too bad the critics find Priest to be less than heavenly. Kristen Wiig is a funny lady. Unfortunately for moviegoers, the Saturday Night Live star has largely been limited to a series of sharp cameos on the big screen. Well, now she?s got a vehicle for her comedic chops with Bridesmaids.
