We've got a few new announcements for upcoming blu-ray/DVD releases, featuring the likes of Peter Pan, zombies, and time travel, all of which would make for a hell of a fun ride if actually mashed-up in a feature.  One can hope.  Disney is releasing PETER PAN in their Diamond Edition format, Sony is releasing the super-cool time travel romp LOOPER, and the unfortunately still alive RESIDENT EVIL franchise unleashes its next shot in the dark for the series.  Likely, this is where most people will catch the film.  Scroll below to see the details and release dates.

RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION

Starring: Milla Jovovich, Sienna Guillory, and Michelle Rodriguez

Directed by: Paul W.S. Anderson

The Umbrella Corporation's deadly T-virus continues to ravage the Earth, transforming the global population into legions of the flesh eating Undead. The human race's last and only hope, Alice (Jovovich), awakens in the heart of Umbrella's most clandestine operations facility and unveils more of her mysterious past as she delves further into the complex. Without a safe haven, Alice continues to hunt those responsible for the outbreak; a chase that takes her from Tokyo to New York, Washington, D.C. and Moscow, culminating in a mind-blowing revelation that will force her to rethink everything that she once thought to be true. Aided by newfound allies and familiar friends, Alice must fight to survive long enough to escape a hostile world on the brink of oblivion. The countdown has begun.
