Coming home on 3D Blu-Ray and DVD on 1st July 2013 is Oz The Great and Powerful. Based on the books of Frank L Baum author of ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’ and directed by Sam Raimi ‘Oz The Great and Powerful’ is certainly one of this years brightest fantasy adventures, for all of the family.
The story may lack the brains, heart and courage of the 1939 ‘The Wizard of Oz’, but it is still an enjoyable adventure none the less. Featuring James Franco as Oscar Diggs, a small-time magician who is swept away to an enchanted land and is forced into a power struggle between three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams) he is reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz, and must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late.

When his Angel of Vengeance fueled mission does not go his way Jenna begins a ferocious attempt to set things straight.
The Impossible is an incredible true story focusing on one family’s struggle for survival in the 2004 Tsunami. Strong acting and fantastic practical effects make this film a hard-hitting, sometimes difficult watch. The drama is portrayed with brutal but beautiful realism on the big screen without glorifying or belittling this tragic event. Won’t be many dry eyes left for this one.
