Aardman fans should mark September 22 on their calendars since that’s the date the new Wallace & Gromit: The Complete Collection Blu-ray comes out. According to the Blu-ray.com, the new disc from HIT Entertainment will include four of Nick Park’s award-winning shorts’A Grand Day Out, The Wrong Trousers, A Close Shave and the most recent project, A Matter of Loaf and Death, which won an Annie and a BAFTA award earlier this year.
A Matter of Loaf and Death made its U.S. debut on June 5 as part of the U-verse TV On Demand library as well as AT&T’s wireless devices through CV-Video. In this latest outing, which premiered last Christmas on the BBC, our heroes have opened up a new bakery business and have to track down a deadly ‘cereal’ killer who is murdering all the bakers in their charming town.
By the way, this is not really the ‘complete’ Wallace & Gromit collection, since it doesn’t include the movie The Curse of the Were-Rabbit nor the web collection Cracking Contraptions, but, hey, we’re happy HIT is offering this awesome release this fall anyway. The pre-order price on amazon is $19.99.
