Out This Week: Lightyear, Cool World, Gunbuster The Movie and More

This week's new home releases are led by the arrival on disc of Pixar's latest, Lightyear. Will it be able to find the audience at home that it seemed to fail to attract in cinemas? Also new on Blu-Ray this week is Ralph Bakshi's 1992 live-action/animation curio Cool World. Like Lightyear it was a box office flop, but in the years since it has developed something of a cult status. New in anime this week is Gunbuster :The Movie, the feature edit of Gainax and Hideaki Anno's classic sci-fi OVA series.
