DVD Release Update - 2 August

More titles for October from IFC (including one of their theatrical releases!: Fear(s) of the Dark), Il divo on DVD and Blu-ray from Music Box Films, some Blu-ray releases and date changes all below. Note: I have a pretty strong feeling that Fox's Blu-ray release of James Toback's Two Girls and a Guy will be the R-rated edit, not the NC-17 version with Robert Downey Jr. giving more explicit oral sex to Heather Graham. If I'm wrong, I'll be sure to let you know.

If anyone hasn't seen (or heard of) Barry Jenkins' "Medicine for Melancholy," do check it out when it releases on DVD... truly a really great film.

I read good things about that film, Chazz; I'll definitely check it out come October.
