Not exactly a huge amount of flicks being released on disc this week but hey, who would be crazy enough to go up against the biggest movie of all time, The Dark Knight, anyway? Well, a zombie fighting Japanese swim team for one. Yep, Switchblade Sisters' Attack Girls' Swim Team vs. The Undead drops on DVD today and even though it got the thumbs down from quietearth, I'll probably still give it a spin.
Henry Miller's crime thriller Anamorph is also out on DVD today along with Lars Von. Trier's Europa from Criterion. On the boxed set front, we've got a nice I am Legend: Ultimate Collector's Box, Deadwood: The Complete Series and of course Lost: Season 4.
Trailers and links for all after the break.

Poor Aki's having the worst first day ever at her new school. As if »
NEW YORK -- IFC Films has acquired North American rights to the serial killer thriller Anamorph, starring Willem Dafoe and Scott Speedman, and the heist drama How to Rob a Bank, starring Nick Stahl and Erika Christensen.
Anamorph stars Dafoe and Speedman as detectives tracking a killer who re-creates the perspective-distorting painting technique "anamorphosis" in a bizarre series of murders. Peter Stormare and Clea DuVall also star. Marissa McMahon's Kamala Films produced.
In Andrews Jenkins' Bank, a bored teller (Christensen) and her slacker customer (Stahl) get caught in the middle of a bank heist and are forced to arbitrate between crooks and cops. David Carradine, Leo Fitzpatrick and former Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale round out the cast of the Rick Lashbrook Films feature.
IFC's theatrical/VOD day-and-date First Take program will handle both releases. Bank hits theaters next month, and Anamorph will be released in November.
IFC's Arianna Bocco negotiated the Anamorph deal with Endeavor and the Bank deal with Shaun Redick of the Collective. »
