Meanwhile, packaging artwork has leaked online for a physical 4K release of Cameron Crowe’s Almost Famous, and multiple retail sources are suggesting that this title is indeed coming here in the States on 7/13. So stay tuned for an official announcement on that one soon.
In actual announcement news today, Paramount has set Carlos Gutierrez’s Locked In for DVD only release on 7/6.
RLJE Films will release Hunted on Blu-ray and DVD release on 5/18. They also have Anything for Jackson coming to Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital on 6/15. And AMC and RLJE will release Shoplifters of the World on DVD and Blu-ray on 6/1.
Well Go USA will release the martial arts action/comedy The Paper Tigers on Blu-ray on 6/22.
And we’ve gotten word from Best Buy and Target sources that Disney’s animated Raya and the Last Dragon is coming shortly on Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD. We’ve had 5/18 as the anticipated street date for a while now, but Target and Best Buy have only just added the title to their pre-order listings. Target (as of the time of this writing) still indicates “No release date yet,” but Best Buy did just add the title with a street date of 5/18. We know for a fact that many Best Buy stores are already receiving their shipments of discs. And we just got our review copy of the 4K here at The Bits (watch for our review later this week). So we can only guess that maybe there was some uncertainty regarding replication capacity or shipping on this one that’s prevented a proper announcement in advance by the studio. In any case, its release does appear to be due imminently.
Back tomorrow with more. Stay tuned...
