Gerry Anderson created – or co-created with his then wife Sylvia Anderson – a series of beloved TV shows like Mike Mercury: Supercar, Fireball XL-5, Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet. Not to mention live-action shows like Space: 1999, UFO and Space Precinct.
Now several rare Gerry Anderson productions – like his first never-before-seen puppet film Here Comes Kandy, The Investigator, and Space Police (which became the template for Space Precinct) have been collected for the MPI DVD release The Lost Worlds of Gerry Anderson.
The Lost Worlds of Gerry Anderson will be in stores on November 14th.

Alan Moore’s genuinely creepy/scary graphic novel, Batman: The Killing Joke, is one of the most devastating Batman/Joker tales ever told. In truth, the only way to adapt it for film or home video, is to accept that it’s a nasty piece of work and not try to soften it in any way.
Batman: The Killing Joke is WB Animation’s first R-rated movie, so it looks like they’ve done it right. Check out the deeply disturbing trailer after the jump.
If, like me, your appetite has been whetted by the fourth season premiere of BBC America’s Orphan Black and can’t wait to get the home video to find out what the creative was thinking as they put the season together, it will come as a pleasant surprise to learn that Orphan Black: Season Four will be available (in DVD and Blu-ray) on July 19th.
