New arrivals for the week of May 12, 2015
Blackhat
Fifty Shades of Grey
Mortdecai
Still Alice

Greetings everyone,

CU Bike to Work Day is Thursday,May 14 -- and, it looks like it's going to be a beautiful day to ride bikes! There will be stations set up throughout Urbana-Champaign for cyclists to stop for snacks, drinks and information about cycling in the Urbana-Champaign area. If you can't make it to one of the stations, stop by Rentertainment and grab the new "Champaign-Urbana-Savoy Bicycle Guide and Map" -- there's tons of useful information on there. You can find everything you need to know about CU Bike to Work Day right here: www.cubike.org

This week's biggest new releases are: "Blackhat" (w/Chris Hemsworth, Viola Davis and Tang Wei), "Fifty Shades of Grey" (w/Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan), "Mortdecai" (w/Johnny Depp, Gwyneth Paltrow and Ewan McGregor) and "Still Alice" (w/Julianne Moore, Kristen Stewart, Kate Bosworth and Alec Baldwin). Also of interest: "The Dance Goodbye" (a documentary on New York City Ballet's Merrill Ashley's career), "Magical Universe" (about Al Carbee, an 88-year-old reclusive outsider artist whose palette is the Barbie doll) and "A Year in Champagne" (the story of Champagne). Some new TV stuff, too: Father Brown S2, Murder in the First S1, Power S1, Transporter S1, Unforgettable S3 and three more seasons of Law & Order (18, 19 and 20). As promised, we added a few new titles to the International Mystery Series section: Blood of the Vine S3 (France), Blood on the Docks V1 (France), The Bridge (Bron/Broen) S2 (Sweden) and Unni Lindell S2 (Norway). Also as promised, some new Criterion titles: Rainer Werner Fassbinder's "The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant" (1972), Lucrecia Martel's "La Ciénaga" (2001), Jean Renoir's "A Day in the Country" (1936), Federico Fellini's "Fellini Satyricon" (1969), Guy Maddin's "My Winnipeg" (2007), Preston Sturges' "The Palm Beach Story" (1942) and Eclipse Series 41: "Kinoshita and World War II". You can check out all of this week's new arrivals below.

By the way, our somewhat shorter Summer hours will start on Monday, May 18th. They will be:
Monday - Thursday (11:00-8:00), Friday (11:00 - 9:00), Saturday (noon-9:00) and Sunday (noon - 8:00)

We have almost 100 titles in our newly formed International Mysteries Series section -- most released by MHz Networks and Acorn Media. The Swedish series, "The Bridge" (which the FX series, "The Bridge", is based on) is the #1 renter (and you can find Series 2 on the New Release Wall). The Danish political drama, "Borgen" is #2 followed by the Australian "Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries" in 3rd -- very international indeed! This new section seems to be hugely popular. Have a look through it the next time you're in. Remember, the British Mysteries have their own section so they are not showing up on this list. Here are the Top Renting International Mysteries Series at That's Rentertainment...
1 BRIDGE, THE (BRON/BROEN):SERIES 01
2 BORGEN: SEASON 01
3 MISS FISHER'S MURDER MYSTERIES: SERIES 2
4 HINTERLAND: SEASON 01

(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Have a great week...
