We’ve got just a few quick news items to report today to close out the week...

First, Warner Bros. Discovery Home Entertainment has set the animated Mortal Kombat Legends: Cage Match for Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD release on 10/17.

Also, it looks like Warner is tentatively planning to drop the newly-released Barbie movie on at least Blu-ray and DVD on 10/3, based on the date Target briefly showed on their listing for the Blu-ray this morning.

Meanwhile, Universal has officially set the animated Shrek the Third for 4K UHD release on 9/12.

And for your Trek fans, we’ve now officially confirmed that CBS Studios will release Star Trek: Prodigy: Season 1, Episodes 11-20 on Blu-ray and DVD on 9/26. And we have a look at the final cover artwork at left and also below the break. [Read on here...]

Here’s what the opening packaging looks like (click here or on the image to visit the pre-order page for the title)...

Star Trek: Prodigy: Season 1, Episodes 11-20 (Blu-ray Disc)

Note that this title is available for purchase via Digital as of today.

In other release news, MVD Entertainment will release Duran Duran: A Hollywood High – Live in Los Angeles on Blu-ray on 8/4.

PBS Home Video will release American Buffalo: A Film by Ken Burns on Blu-ray and DVD on 11/7.

And since a lot of you have asked us about this: We’ve checked in with our friends at Kino Lorber Studio Classics and have confirmed that the street date for their 4K Ultra HD release of William Friedkin’s To Live and Die in L.A. (1985) is officially unchanged. It happened on 7/18, as originally planned. We suspect demand for this title is very high, so everyone involved is struggling to replicate and ship enough copies to meet demand. (Some Bits readers are seeing their Amazon and other online retailer ship dates pushed into early August.) Rest assured, the discs are on the way and should be available to everyone very soon.

Finally today, iam8bit has just announced that they’ll be releasing a two-LP vinyl soundtrack for Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal from Adult Swim. Pre-orders begin Saturday, July 22, at 9 a.m. PDT (tomorrow) here on their website. The LP is expected to ship in Q4.

That’s all for this week. Have a great weekend and for all those of you down at San Diego Comic-Con, enjoy the rest of the Con!
