Flick Picks 12/3

New This Week!
ENTERTAINMENT: The second highest grossing film of the year comes to DVD this week and it's also the second highest grossing superhero movie of the year! In The Dark Knight Rises, Bruce Wayne once again dons the bat outfit to protect Gotham from Bane. Batgirl is also along for the ride. It's a superhero flick but it's not for the kids as Christopher Nolan gives us a dark vision of a bleak society. It stars Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman and Morgan Freeman and we've got it on DVD and Blu-ray.

Adults who are looking for something a little milder will want to pick up Hope Springs, starring Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones as a couple who try to spice up their marriage. The Odd Life of Timothy Green is the story of a couple wanting to start a family who find an unusual child on their doorstep one night. It stars Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton. Beasts of the Southern Wild was the surprise hit of the summer, with an unknown cast in the story of a young Louisiana girl's quest to find her mother.

SERIES: The eight-hour epic miniseries adaptation of Ken Follett's World Without End, which follows the story of four siblings in medieval England, arrives this week. Also out this week, is the third season of Eastbound and Down with loudmouth baseball pitcher Kenny Powers back from Mexico and headed to a Florida minor league team.

SUBTITLED: Unforgivable is a moody French thriller, set in Venice, in which a crime writer hires a detective to look into his new wife's past.
