New arrivals for the week of April 3, 2012
Being Elmo
Double Hour
War Horse
We Bought a Zoo

Greetings everyone,

There were only a handful of new releases this week: "Being Elmo: A Pupeteer's Journey" (w/Emo creator Kevin Clash), "The Double Hour" (w/ Ksenia Rappoport and Filippo Timi), "War Horse" (director Steven Spielberg) and "We Bought a Zoo" (w/Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson). Two more Doctor Who episodes also arrived (#83 and 89, there are at least two more coming in this week as well). On BluRay we got the complete Farscape series -- that's 20 discs worth of Jim Henson Sci-Fi awesomeness!

We now have well over 3,000 BluRay discs and more than 10% of all rentals are BluRays. There's still some disagreement as to whether or not BluRay will be around forever, will be replaced by a newer later-and-greater format, or will vanish into the intertubes, but for now it seems to be growing in popularity -- at least around here. That said, here are the Top 10 rentals in our BluRay department:
1) HARRY POTTER: DEATHLY HALLOWS PT 1
2) HELP, THE
3) MONEYBALL
4) TRUE BLOOD: SEASON 3
5) COWBOYS & ALIENS
6) BRIDESMAIDS
7) DEBT, THE
8) HUGO
9) SUPER 8
10) GAME OF THRONES: SEASON 01
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
