Memorial Day Weekend - the traditional start of the Hollywood "summer" season - is only a few days away, with a plethora of action adventure, sci-fi, romantic comedies, and traditional dramas waiting in the wings at the box office.
In the meantime, movie buffs and Blu-ray collectors have plenty of new releases from various genres to choose from starting on Tuesday, May 20. Many of the new titles, including the four on this list, were releasedtheatrically earlier this year. Some were moderately successful at the box office, while "Vampire Academy" flopped. Starz and Anchor Bay, which co-produced the dark comedy/horror hybrid by "Mean Girls" director Mark Waters, hope that home video release will give "Vampire Academy" a new lease on life and help find an audience.
