New this week on DVD

December 04, 2008

'Wanted'



The story, such as it is, involves Wesley (James McAvoy) as the long-lost son of a prodigal assassin who has broken off from this ancient order of weavers turned killers. Is that silly and preposterous? Of course, it is. But who cares. The movie contains a number of innovative visual ideas that offer a significant "wow" factor. Single DVD, $29.98; Blu-ray DVD, $39.98; two-disc special edition, $34.98. (Universal Studios)

'The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian'



Director Andrew Adamson has scored another triumph, taking on the lesser-known second book in C.S. Lewis' series and digging deep into a more spiritually challenging direction. It may prove a bit long and dark for the younger ones, but fun is there, too, with a wealth of new, fantastical characters. Single-disc DVD release, or a three-disc collector's edition comes with a digital copy for portable video players. Single DVD, $29.99; three-disc collector's edition + digital copy and BD Live $40.99. (Disney/Pixar)
