Okay, first things first: You may have noticed that we’ve added a new Amazon graphic to The Bits homepage (above right, in the sidebar column). What that widget allows you to do is to see the best of the day’s Blu-ray and DVD deals on Amazon. You can scroll through them and new ones are added all the time. Shopping through that widget helps support The Bits. We’ll be adding more such widgets gradually, as we see what you find useful, so please e-mail us or message us on Facebook and let us know what you think. We really do appreciate it.  [Read on here…]

Comic-Con 2015 is a wrap and there’s plenty of good geek news to report for you today!

First though, our own Mario Boucher posted a new Inside Cinema column back on Thursday (in case you missed it) looking back at The Terminator films. Do check it out.

Now then... our Digital Bits Comic-Con panel went very well on Thursday afternoon! We had a packed room with lots of Bits readers asking great questions about Blu-ray. Our friend Charles de Lauzirika revealed that he’s officially working on the forthcoming Blu-ray of Ridley Scott’s The Martian. Cliff Stephenson is busy working on the Hannibal: Season Three Blu-ray for Lionsgate. And of course Robert Meyer Burnett has just completed the Prelude to Axanar Blu-ray for backers of that project on Kickstarter. Rob is also working with executive producer Alec Peters and myself on the full Star Trek: Axanar feature film – Rob is going to direct the film and I’m co-writing it with Alec. (As it happens, Charles de Lauzirika is helping to produce the film, and Cliff is going to produce the forthcoming Blu-ray special features, so quite literally everyone on our Bits panel is involved in the Axanar project.) You can view the project’s IndieGoGo page here (it launched during Comic-Con). More on that in a moment. As the panel wound on, we discussed the future of Blu-ray and indie studio releases on the format, we talked a little about Ultra HD Blu-ray (we’ll have more on that later this month), and we took questions from the audience. [Read on here…]
