» Wallace & Gromit fans have something to look forward to in September. Wallace & Gromit: The Complete Collection will be released September 22 on DVD and Blu-Ray


» The Cleveland Scene interviews Nevin Martell, the author of the upcoming book on Bill Watterson. Not a lot of new information.

One thought on “News Briefs for July 29, 2009

  1. I am an absolute fan of Wallace and Gromit and I consider it my favorite franchise, but seriously, how many times can they release the shorts and movie?

    I have at least four different releases in my collection right now. I understand the upgrade to Blu-ray, but another DVD collection? (rolleyes)…

    Aardman is becoming another George Lucas.
