Lionsgate has just issued its press release for the Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD release of Saban’s Power Rangers (2017). Look for the discs on 6/27, as we mentioned yesterday, with the Digital HD release expected on 6/13. Extras on the Blu-ray versions will include audio commentary with director Dean Israelite and writer John Gatins, the 9-part The Power of the Present documentary (includes Rangers Then to Now, Building the Team, Beyond the Rangers, Suiting Up, Rangers, Welcome to Training, Rangers in the Wild, It’s Morphin Time, Power Ballad: Music and Sound, and This is Your Destiny), deleted, alternate, and extended scenes, outtakes, and the film’s theatrical trailer also with optional commentary by Israelite. The 4K disc will include Dolby Atmos audio and will feature Dolby Vision HDR. Note that the Blu-ray will also feature Dolby Atmos. You can see the Blu-ray and 4K cover artwork to the left and also below. [Read on here…]

Speaking of 4K, retail sources are suggesting that Paramount’s Terminator: Genisys is coming to the format overseas, which likely means a 4K UHD release is in the offing here in the States as well.

On the standard Blu-ray front today, our friends at Twilight Time have announced details on their May slate of titles, which now includes Year of the Comet (isolated music track, original theatrical trailer), in addition to Who’ll Stop the Rain (isolated music track, Supervising Editor John Bloom Talks About Who’ll Stop the Rain, original theatrical trailer), The Stone Killer (isolated music track, audio commentary with Bronson biographer Paul Talbot, original theatrical trailer), The Man in the Moon (isolated music track, original theatrical trailer), Inferno (1953 – 3D/2D – isolated music track, audio commentary with film historian Alan K. Rode and Robert Ryan’s daughter Lisa Ryan, A New Dimension of Noir: Filming Inferno in 3D, and the original theatrical trailer), and Brutal Tales of Chivalry (aka Shôwa zankyô-denBrutal Tales of Filmmaking: Toei Producer Toru Yoshida). All are expected to ship on 5/16, with pre-orders open now on Screen Archives Entertainment and Twilight Time Movies.

And Scream Factory has just announced that they’re working on new Blu-ray editions of The Manster (1959) and Timebomb (1991) for release on 5/89.
