All right, we’re working to smooth out some server issues here at The Bits, so today’s post will be brief. But we do have a couple of quick things to report for you today...

First, we’ve gotten a ton of requests over the years from readers wondering when DreamWorks’ Prince of Egypt and Antz were going to be released on Blu-ray. And the answer, finally, is October 16.

You can pre-order them here and here on Amazon and you can see the cover artwork for Prince of Egypt on the left there (and also below).

Each will feature 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio and it appears that the previous DVD extras will carry over. Thanks to Bits reader Chris C. for the heads-up on this. [Read on here...]

One other things: Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has begun to re-solicit all of their DC live action superhero films for re-issue Blu-ray/4K on 10/2. It seems likely that this is part of the studio’s effort to gear up for the yet-to-be-announced release of Superman: The Movie in 4K Ultra HD. So we would expect the street date for that to be 10/2 or sometime in the week or two thereafter. We’ll let you know when we hear anything official.

By the way, our information is that the Superman: The Movie Ultra HD release will include only the theatrical cut restored in 4K, though the other cuts could obviously be included in 1080p HD on an accompanying Blu-ray Disc.

Here’s that DreamWorks cover art along with Shout!’s 3-disc Dances with Wolves Blu-ray Steelbook Limited Edition (due on 11/13, extras are TBA)…

Prince of Egypt (Blu-ray Disc) Antz (Blu-ray Disc) Dances with Wolves: Collector's Edition (Steelbook Blu-ray Disc)

And that’s all for this week. Have a great weekend and we’ll see you back here on Monday.

Stay tuned...
