For hardcore Superman fans, the Blu-ray 3D Limited Collector’s Edition, which comes in a metal case with stand (and downloadable UltraViolet version), includes nearly four hours of special features, among them a look at Henry Cavill’s training regimen for the film.
“Hunger Games: Catching Fire Soundtrack”
The last “Hunger Games” soundtrack topped the Billboard album chart on the way to racking up Oscar and Grammy noms, and the sequel song-set features a notably diverse array of artists, from Coldplay and
Christina Aguilera to Lorde, the National and Patti Smith.
“Foreverly” – Billie Joe Armstrong and Norah Jones
The pairing may seem like a Mad Lib for this Everly Brothers homage, but the duo’s “Songs Our Daddy Taught Us” is out this month on Reprise.
“Zabriskie Point” Soundtrack
The long out-of-print soundtrack for the 1970 film gets a special two-LP Record Store Day re-release, featuring tracks from Pink Floyd and Jerry Garcia not available on the original.
“Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook: How to Tell Your Story in a Noisy Social World” Gary Vaynerchuk (HarperBusiness)
The author of “Crush It!” freshens his social-media advice, explaining how to develop content that’s perfect for promoting a project or product on the likes of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
“Inside the Dream Palace” Sherill Tippins (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt)
Home to the inspired, depraved and creative for decades, Manhattan’s notorious Chelsea Hotel rates a biography as much as any of its famous residents, from Arthur Miller and Allen Ginsberg to Andy Warhol
and Sid Vicious.
“The Fat Lady Sang” Robert Evans (It Books)
After “The Kid Stays in the Picture,” it seems like the swinging producer would have run out of stories. Clearly, that’s not the case here. And the photo of Jack Nicholson after a debauched Paris all-nighter is priceless.
Super Mario 3D World (Nintendo)
Available for the Wii U, the latest entry in Nintendo’s Super Mario Bros. franchise combines the best elements in the previous installments and lets up to four players control Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach or Toad, all with different abilities.
Skylanders Swap Force (Activision)
The third game in the Skylanders series taps into better graphics on the new vidgame consoles from Sony and Microsoft, and allows the pile of figures you’ve already bought for your kids to be used to swap bodies to create new creatures.
Kids can interact with the stories of Princess Anna and Elsa from two different perspectives in this Storybook Deluxe app that also features original music.
