All right, big release news today...

As we first reported was coming a few weeks ago here on The Bits, HBO has just officially announced the 4K Ultra HD release of Game of Thrones: The Complete First Season on 6/5. The discs will include Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos object-based audio. You can see the cover artwork at the left and below. The package will include all 10 episodes in Ultra HD with the previous BD bonus features in their original HD, plus a Digital copy code.

That bonus content includes: Animated Histories, Anatomy of an Episode, Cast Auditions, Making of Game of Thrones, Characters Profiles, Creating the Show Open, From the Book to the Screen, The Night’s Watch, Creating the Dothraki Language, and 7 episode Audio Commentaries with the cast and crew.

We’ve updated our 4K Ultra HD Release List here at The Digital Bits accordingly. We’ll add the pre-order link as soon as it goes live (both to the list and the cover art below).

Also today, Scream Factory has just announced that they’re going to be bringing a trio of classic John Carpenter titles to Blu-ray on 6/24, including an In the Mouth of Madness: Collector’s Edition, Someone’s Watching Over Me, and Memoirs of an Invisible Man. SRP for each is $29.99 and extras are still to be announced.

Scream Factory is also going to be releasing the first film ever directed by James Cameron, Piranha II: The Spawning, on Blu-ray on 7/17. Again, extras are TBA. You can see the cover artwork below.

And in other news here at the site, we’ve just posted the latest update of our Release Dates & Artwork section featuring all the latest Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD cover artwork and pre-order links. As always, anytime you order through our links it helps us to continue our work here at The Bits and we appreciate it.

Finally today, I wanted to mention something important. There’s an amazing young woman named Stacey Locke who’s a dear friend ours of here at The Digital Bits. She’s a talented web designer, who was a huge part of our own website redesign here at The Bits back in 2010-11 – helping us get the look right and making it all work. Unfortunately, Stacey is now fighting an aggressive form of cancer. Her friends have established a Go Fund Me page (you’ll find it here) to help Stacey and her family in this difficult time. So to all our readers: If any of you are able, we’d sure appreciate it if you made a donation to help them – literally whatever you can will make a difference. From all of us at The Bits, we thank you!

We’ll leave you with a look at the cover artwork for Game of Thrones, the new Carpenter Scream titles, and more (Amazon links will be added as they go live)...
