Out This Week: Primal, Son Of The White Mare, Appare-Ranman and More

This week our new release round-up covers last week's US titles as well (we're still playing catchup from missing a couple of weeks). Between the first two Tuesdays of June there are an impressive lineup of titles including the eagerly anticipated release of Genndy Tartakovsky's acclaimed action series Primal, Hungarian animated classic Son of the White Mare (from director Marcell Jankovics who died last week) and the usual mix of new and not-so-new Japanese animation. It's extremely quiet in the UK this week, with only the 4K boxset of Toy Story hitting shelves.
