2012 Round Up: Blu-Ray Releases – Midnight In Paris, To Rome With Love, A Documentary, Annie Hall, Manhattan, New York Stories, Casino Royale

2012 proved to be a significant year for Woody Allen on Blu-Ray. It saw the first major release of Woody Allen’s catalogue on Blu-Ray, starting with his two biggest films – Annie Hall and Manhattan.

Midnight In Paris



Once again sneaking out at the end of December 2011, ‘Midnight In Paris‘ was widely made available on Blu-Ray in 2012. It’s becoming standard for all new Woody Allen films to be released on BR (and indeed, across the industry). As usual, no special features.
