New on DVD and Blu-ray

Rise of the Planet of the Apes; The Lady Vanishes; Looney Tunes Platinum Collection: Volume 1

Rise of the Planet of the Apes
(20th Century Fox, $30)
This “violent and disquieting” recent addition to the Planet of the Apes franchise is “better than it has any right to be,” said the Orlando Sentinel. An origins story, it tracks the uprising unleashed when a chimp spreads an intelligence-boosting serum to primates in an animal sanctuary.

The Lady Vanishes
(Criterion, $40)
Alfred Hitchcock’s “1938 classic of espionage adventure” is now available on high-def DVD, said The New York Times. When an elderly lady goes missing on a train, a passenger (Margaret Lockwood) tries to solve the mystery herself. Also included is Crook’s Tour, a 1941 comedy spin-off.

Looney Tunes Platinum Collection: Volume 1
(Warner, $48)
Bugs, Daffy, and the rest of Warner Bros.’s “biggest stars” get Blu-ray treatment here in 25 well-known cartoons, said the New York Post. But the three-disc set also spotlights such secondary characters as Marvin the Martian, in shorts that never hit DVD.
