Well... we’re kicking off a new week here today and this is a big one: The first full trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII is going to be unveiled at Star Wars Celebration on Thursday, ahead of its public debut attached to Avengers: Age of Ultron later this month. We don’t know if the trailer will be released online before then, but we’ll have to wait and see.

Here at The Bits today, we’ve got a new Blu-ray review for you. Todd Doogan has given Grindhouse Releasing’s new 3-disc Blu-ray edition of Lucio Fulci’s The Beyond (1981) a look for you. Sounds like the set is absolutely loaded with great content. Also, our own Joe Marchese turned in a look at Twilight Time’s new BD of Stormy Weather (1943) on Friday, in case you missed it. We’re working on more BD reviews over the next few days, so be sure to check back.  [Read on here…]

We’ve got a pair of new Blu-ray reviews for you to enjoy today. First up, Todd Doogan has given Grindhouse Releasing’s new 3-disc Blu-ray edition of Lucio Fulci’s The Beyond (1981) an epic look. Also our own Joe Marchese has taken turned in his thoughts on Andrew Stone’s 1943 musical Stormy Weather, which was one of the early Hollywood films to feature an all-black cast. Both BD sets (and the films they contain) are well worth a look, so enjoy the reviews!
