Other June 16 Releases
The release of the Hell on Wheels: The Complete Second Season Blu-ray and DVD set means that fans are very near to seeing the show’s long-awaited Season 3 premiere on AMC. The series centers on a settlement that developed around the construction of the first transcontinental railroad and follows a railroad foreman named Cullen who is looking into a murder mystery. The series was delayed after losing its original showrunner, but will return to AMC’s schedule on August 3. If you aren’t caught up on the series, the Season 1 and Season 2 sets are a good place to start.
This week's other big release is Bullet to the Head, the new Sylvestor Stallone film that follows the actor as a New Orleans resident and hit man who teams up with a cop (Sung Kang) to wreak havoc and revenge on a set of killers that took the lives of their respective partners. That flicks i s available on Blu-ray and DVD today, as well as via digital outlets like iTunes, Xbox, PlayStation, Amazon and more. While many of the movies in this column offer better picture quality and better bonus features when purchasing Blu-ray copies, the Stallone flick only comes with one special feature looking at the action and choreography and quite frankly, if you want to give this one a shot the picture quality isn't particularly preferable on the Blu-ray copy. Check out some of the rest of this week's releases, below.
Unless otherwise noted, releases are available on both DVD and Blu-ray.
