Also today, Shout! Factory and Scream have just revealed their full July release slate, which includes some titles we’ve been expecting for a while, a fun surprise or two, and no less than six 4K Ultra HD titles!
Let’s start with that fun surprise: Shout! will release The Six Million Dollar Man: The Complete Series on Blu-ray on 7/12 (SRP $189.98). The set will include all 99 episode, 3 pilot films, 3 reunion films, and the bonus crossover episodes of The Bionic Woman.
Also coming on 7/12 is the anime Pompo the Cinephile (2021) on Blu-ray and DVD (for GKids), a Shout! Select Blu-ray of Garry Marshall’s Georgia Rule (2007), and a DVD only release of Patrick Gilles’ I’m Charlie Walker (2022).
Following on 7/19 are Moustapha Akkad’s The Message (1976) and Lion of the Desert (1980) on 4K Ultra HD, which we’ve been expecting for a while now here at The Bits, along with Oliver Stone’s JFK Revisited: The Complete Collection on Blu-ray (which includes the documentaries JFK Revisited: Through the Looking Glass and JFK: Destiny Betrayed—a signed poster is also available exclusively through the Shout! website), and Paul Schrader’s Cat People: Collector’s Edition (1982) in 4K Ultra HD (a release that was delayed from its originally scheduled 6/28 street date).
Then on 7/26, look for Starhunter ReduX: The Complete Series on Blu-ray (a 10-disc set with all 44 episodes featuring expanded footage, updated VFX, and the originally intended 16x9 aspect ratio), along with that Species: Collector’s Edition in 4K Ultra HD we mentioned the other day, as well as Collector’s Editions of Dog Soldiers and The Funhouse in 4K Ultra HD (both delayed from their originally scheduled 6/14 ad 6/21 street dates).
You can see the cover artwork for many of these titles below and our 4K Ultra HD Release List here at The Bits has been updated accordingly.
