MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY (1962)

It’s a Blu-ray christening for Marlon Brando’s costly redo, frequently cited along with “Cleopatra’’ for the downfall of old Hollywood - but lush-looking nevertheless. (Warner, $19.98; available now)

MY FAIR LADY (1964)

Audrey Hepburn is scrutinized in even sharper detail by makeover artist Rex Harrison as George Cukor’s musical classic debuts on Blu-ray. Extras: retrospective and vintage featurettes; alternate, undubbed vocals by Hepburn. (Paramount, $32.99)

FANNY & ALEXANDER (1982)

Ingmar Bergman’s fond look back at growing up in turn-of-the-century Sweden gets a hi-def cineaste reissue, both in its feature form and a five-hour television version. Michelangelo Antonioni’s 1982 anti-romance “Identification of a Woman’’ receives similar treatment. Extras: feature production documentary by Bergman. (Criterion, $59.95; available now)

MAIN STREET (2011)

A notable cast and overall strong pedigree don’t do much for a stilted story about a North Carolina town’s response to a visiting businessman’s controversial revitalization plan. With Colin Firth and Orlando Bloom (doing Southern accents); written by late screenwriter Horton Foote (“To Kill a Mockingbird’’). (Magnolia, $26.98; Blu-ray, $29.98)

HOW THE STATES GOT THEIR SHAPES: SEASON ONE (2011)

Geography-themed trivia that can actually be fun for the whole family, particularly if you’ve got kids at that amusing informational-sponge age. (Also see Scholastic’s recent “The Scrambled States of America.’’) (A&E, $34.95; available now)

THANKSKILLING (2009)

“Grindhouse’’ imagined Thanksgiving-themed horror; this cheerily awful, microbudgeted schlock makes it a reality, with the turkey as the maniac. More conventional about your horror picks? “Evil Dead II’’ also hits Blu-ray. (MVD Visual, $16.95; available now)

Titles are in stores Tuesday unless specified.
