Beauty and the Beast The Iron Gi­ant, with April and Howard Love­craft. Franck Ek­inci, adapted from the ac­claimed graphic novel by Jac­ques Tardi.

In 1941 Paris, a fam­ily of sci­en­tists is on the brink of dis­cov­er­ing a pow­er­ful longevity serum when they are mys­te­ri­ously ab­ducted, leav­ing young April alone. Ten years later, April (Mar­ion Cotil­lard) carries on the re­search with only her cat Dar­win for com­pany, but soon finds her­self at the cen­ter of a shad­owy con­spir­acy, on the run from sin­is­ter agents, ped- inated for the Best Pic­ture Os­car, and nabbed two Academy Awards as well as a Golden Globe.

The Dig­i­tal HD and Disney Movies Any­where ver­sion out Sept. 6 and the Blu-ray/ DVD/ Dig­i­tal re­lease both boast four ver­sions of the film: orig­i­nal the­atri­cal, “Hu­man Again” branched ver­sion, the­atri­cal sin­ga­long and Work-In-Progress/ PIP.

Shared bonuses also in­clude “Alan Menken & Friends: A Trib­ute,” “Al­ways Belle” imag­ines a young H.P. Love­craft liv­ing out his rich imag­i­na­tions.

The oth­er­worldly ad­ven­ture kicks off when young Howard Love­craft re­ceives the leg­endary Ne­cro­nomi­con from his un­wit­ting mother, and is trans­ported to a dan­ger­ous, frozen world pop­u­lated by hor­ri­fy­ing crea­tures. Af­ter sav­ing and be­friend­ing a mon­ster he calls Spot, the boy sets out on a per­ilous new scenes that shouldn’t be missed.

Pro­duced un­der the old Warner Bros. Fea­ture An­i­ma­tion shin­gle and based on poet Ted Hughes’ book, The Iron Gi­ant is a heartwrench­ing sci fi tale of an un­likely friend­ship be­tween a re­bel­lious young boy named Hog­a­rth (voiced by Eli Mari­en­thal) and a gi­ant robot (Vin Diesel), ex­plor­ing themes of fear and self-de­ter­mi­na­tion. This Blu-ray re­lease has both the orig­i­nal and sig­na­ture ver­sions of the film, plus new mak­ing-of doc­u­men­tary The Gi-
