Pre-orders are also now being taken on Amazon for the Blu-ray and DVD release of Peter Chelsom’s The Space Between Us from Universal. Street date is also TBA.
Meanwhile, Lionsgate has set War on Everyone for Blu-ray and DVD release on 4/11.
BBC Home Entertainment has set Doctor Who: Series 10, Part 1 for Blu-ray and DVD release on 6/6.
Cinedigm is releasing American Violence on Blu-ray and DVD on 3/14.
Kino Lorber has announced that their Studio Classics line will soon include John Mackenzie’s The Last of the Finest (1990). The company has also set Tristan & Isolde (2006) for Blu-ray release on 4/18.
Scream Factory has just announced a new batch of Blu-ray B-listers for release this summer, including The Man from Planet X (1951), The Four Skulls of Jonathan Drake (1959), The Bat People (1974), Vicious Lips (1986), and Alienator (1990). Scream has also announced that they’re working on a Blu-ray release of Gordon Willis’s Windows (1980). Street dates are all TBA.
Paul Golding’s Pulse (1988) is coming to Blu-ray from Mill Creek Entertainment on 3/7.
And we’ve mentioned this before, but a number of online retailers are still showing FUNimation’s Speed Racer: The Complete Series for Blu-ray release on 5/30 (SRP $22.99). Presumably, the more elaborate version that includes Speed Racer packaged on Blu-ray with the original Japanese version, Mach Go Go Go, is still to be revealed. And keep in mind neither has been officially announced yet by FUNimation, though they did confirm last year that they’re coming in 2017.
Okay, that’s it for the time being. Check back tomorrow for new Blu-ray reviews from Tim, and just maybe my thoughts on Ang Lee’s Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk from Sony, which comes to the 4K UHD format in native 60 fps. It’s pretty fascinating.
