A funny thing happened on the way to yesterday’s My Two Cents post! For some reason, I lost track of a day this week, so I thought yesterday was Friday. Then I wake up and here’s Friday again, much to my surprise. LOL. So anyway, while a bit of yesterday’s post still applies this afternoon, we’ve got some great breaking release news to share with you all today...

First up, the fine Imprint Films (down in Australia) has just announced their March 2022 Blu-ray slate, which is due to street on 3/30/22. It will include Sam Peckinpah’s The Osterman Weekend (1983 – mastered from new 2K scans of the director’s cut negative and the theatrical cut, so it will include both versions), Buzz Kulik’s The Hunter (1980 – starring Steve McQueen), Samuel Fuller’s China Gate (1957), Byron Haskin’s Conquest of Space (1955 – produced by George Pal), John Sturges’ Marooned (1969), Robert Wise’s Audrey Rose (1977), and Dalton Trumbo’s Johnny Got His Gun (1971). Not bad at all!

As usual, all of these Blu-rays should be region free. You’ll find them available here on the Imprint website.

But here’s the whopper today... Arrow Video has just announced its March 2022 slate as well, which includes no less than three new 4K UHD catalog titles! [Read on here...]

We’ve got some great announcement news for you catalog fans today, but first we also have another new Blu-ray review for you to check out...

Our own Tim Salmons has just turned in his thoughts on the 4-disc Laurel & Hardy: The Definitive Restorations BD set from Kit Parker Films and MVD Visual, which includes 21 shorts, 2 feature films, and a bevy of extras. Sounds like it’s a pretty nice set, so if you’re a fan of the comedy duo, you should definitely check it out.

Now then, the big news today is that Paramount Home Entertainment has just revealed that its next Paramount Presents Blu-ray title is none other than William Wyler’s Roman Holiday (1953), starring Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck. Look for it to street on 9/15 (SRP $29.98). You can see the cover artwork at left and also below.

The film was digitally restored in 2015 in a process took roughly six months, following an exhaustive worldwide search for the best available elements. [Read on here...]
