Also, we’re exactly TEN days away from the kick-off of this year’s Star Wars Celebration convention, which will also be in Anaheim. The first full trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens will be unveiled there ahead of its wide public release attached to Avengers: Age of Ultron on 5/1. So there’s that to look forward to.
Little bit of announcement news… we broke a little bit of news out of WonderCon by posting these pictures from the show floor, which confirm that the official street date for Fox’s Lost in Space: The Complete Series Blu-ray set is 9/15.
Also, Lionsgate is re-issuing Miramax’s The Shipping News on Blu-ray on 6/17.
Well Go USA will release Tsui Hark’s The Taking of Tiger Mountain on Blu-ray and DVD on 6/2.
Kino Lorber has set a double feature of Mario Bava’s Evil Eye and The Girl Who Knew Too Much for release on both formats on 5/19.
And Universal Studios has officially set Sergei Bodrov’s Seventh Son for Blu-ray and DVD release on 5/26. The film stars Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore.
Finally this morning, in the wake of WonderCon, let me just say that the films I’m most looking forward to in the months ahead are (in no particular order) Max Mad: Fury Road, The Martian, SPECTRE and Star Wars: Episode VII. What are your picks? Feel free to share them here on our Facebook page.
Here’s a look at a little bit of new Blu-ray cover artwork…
We’ll be back this afternoon with more, including a new review of Scream Factory’s new Blu-ray of John Carpenter’s Escape from New York: Collector’s Edition.
