The New World - £14.99 - Review by Gary Couzens
The New World is not your typical historical epic romance, as the presence of Terrence Malick as the director will indicate. However, this visually-stunning film puts up a good show on its Region 1 release from New Line, with an hour-long featurette as the main extra.

The final review of a Bruckheimer release arrives with Jerry and director Tony Scott feeling concerned over their loss of privacy.
