Several MVM Titles Receive Minor Release Date Alterations


Following on from monday’s release date alteration for From The New World – Part 2 it’s been confirmed that a handful of other MVM Entertainment releases have also been slightly delayed.

For starters the complete series release of Bodacious Space Pirates on DVD has been pushed back to the 29th September 2014 where as the Blu-ray version will still be released on it’s original release date of 22nd September 2014.

Moving into October the ‘Limited Edition’ DVD release of The Garden of Sinners Movie Collection has been moved from the 6th October 2014 all the way back to the 27th October 2014; which is a considerable gap.

Finally, as we previously mentioned yesterday the Blu-ray release of From The New World – Part 2 has been pushed back until the 6th October 2014, the DVD on the other hand ‘should’ be available although some retailers don’t have stock of it.

MVM Entertainment have yet to clarify the reasoning behind these delays but we can only assume it has something to do with the arrival of stock from suppliers and production companies.

Plot: Most families have a skeleton or two in the closet, but Marika is understandably shocked to learn that what her family has been hiding is a skull and crossbones! While the revelation that her late father was a space pirate would have been earthshaking enough for most teenage girls, discovering that he was the captain of the notorious pirate ship Benten Maru will change Marika’s life forever. You see, pirating is a family business, and she’s just inherited the position of captain – and her father’s former crew is quite intent on making sure Marika accepts the job!

What’s a girl to do? Well, if you’re a high school student whose prior total naval experience has been working at the space yacht club, there’s really only one moral dilemma that has to be resolved: are pirates allowed to wear really short mini-skirts?
