Let’s kick off the new week with a quick round-up of new Blu-ray release announcements...

Our friends at the Warner Archive will release 42nd Street (1933) on Blu-ray on 4/21. The Blu-ray is mastered from the new 2015 restoration, with DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 mono audio. Extras will include the From Book to Screen to Stage 2006 retrospective documentary, 3 vintage WB short subjects (Hollywood Newsreel, A Trip Thru a Hollywood Studio, and Harry Warren: America’s Foremost Composer), the vintage promotional newsreel The 42nd Street Special, 2 vintage 1933 WB cartoons (Young and Healthy and Shuffle Off to Buffalo), and the original theatrical trailer.  [Read on here…]

All right, as I work to catch up on release news here at the site, we’ve got no less than four Blu-ray Disc reviews for you today.

First up, Tim has taken a look at Disney’s new 101 Dalmatians: Diamond Edition and Scream’s New Year’s Evil on Blu-ray. Both titles are now available.

Also, Doogan has also weighed in this afternoon with his thoughts on Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, which streets on Blu-ray tomorrow in a departure from the usual Tuesday release date. Unfortunately, as Amazon is currently engaged in another of its irritating pissing matches with a Hollywood studio, in this case Lionsgate, the title is not available for pre-order on Amazon. (More on that in a minute.) But you should be able to find it at your local Best Buy, Target or Walmart tomorrow morning.  [Read on here…]
