We’ve got just one quick final news post for you here at The Bits this week to report that Arrow Video has officially announced their April Blu-ray and 4K slate, and there are some real gems in the mix as well as a pair of great new Ultra HD releases.

On Blu-ray in the US and Canada only, look for The Eight Diagram Pole Fighter (1984) in two different cover art SKUs (original theatrical art and new artwork) on 4/5.

In the UK only, look for Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer (1986) on both Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD on 4/18.

And in all three regions, look for Terry Gilliam’s 12 Monkeys (1995) on 4K Ultra HD on 4/26, as well as Twisting the Knife: Four Films by Claude Chabrol—which will include The Swindle (1997), The Color of Lies (1999), Nightcap (2002), and The Flower of Evil (2003)—also on 4/26 on Blu-ray only, and Rogue Cops and Racketeers: Two Crime Thrillers by Enzo G. Castellari on Blu-ray only—which includes the films The Big Racket (1976) and The Heroin Busters (1977)—on 4/19. [Read on here...]

For those who may be wondering, 12 Monkeys will include a new restoration from a 4K scan of the original negative by Arrow Films, approved by director Terry Gilliam, and presented with both Dolby Vision and HDR10 high dynamic range.

You can read more about all of these titles here on the Arrow Video website. Here’s a look at the full slate with cover artwork...

One other note today: We’ve mentioned in recent days here at The Bits that David Fincher’s Panic Room is finally coming to 4K Ultra HD—and hopefully remastered Blu-ray too—in 2022. Retail sources had originally suggested a late March street date, but our industry sources are now telling us to expect the title sometime later in the year, probably more likely this summer. So adjust your plans accordingly. You can certainly expect that Sony will make a big deal with their official announcement of the title in the months ahead.

Also, Kino Lorber Studio Classics has set Alain Jessua’s Armageddon (1976) for release on Blu-ray on 4/5.

That’s all for now. Have a great weekend and we’ll see you back here on Monday!
