Afternoon, folks!

Today’s post is a quick one, but we’ve got a couple good things for you. First, a couple title announcements...

Universal has announced a direct-to-video sequel to American Pie for release on DVD and Digital on 10/6: American Pie Presents: Girls’ Rules. Apparently, it’s on its way to Netflix as well.

Also, MVD Entertainment Group has set Seniors, A Documentary for DVD and VOD on 9/29.

Powerhouse Films and Indicator in the UK have their Samuel Fuller at Columbia: 1937-1961 Limited Edition box set on sale right now for just £34.50 in honor of Fuller’s birthday. It includes the films It Happened in Hollywood (1937), Adventure in Sahara (1938), Power of the Press (1943), Shockproof (1949), Scandal Sheet (1952), The Crimson Kimono (1959), and Underworlds USA (1961).

Meanwhile Indicator has I, Monster (1971), Sweet Charity (1969), and Eve (1962) coming on September 28.

And following on October 19 is The Fu Manchu Cycle: 1965-1969 Limited Edition box set, which includes The Face of Fu Manchu (1965), The Brides of Fu Manchu (1966), The Vengeance of Fu Manchu (1967), The Blood of Fu Manchu (1968), and The Castle of Fu Manchu (1969).

Now then, our friends at Sony Pictures Home Entertainment would like your opinion on the titles they should include for their forthcoming Columbia Classics 4K Ultra HD Collection: Volume 2 box set (TBA). They’ve created an online poll for you all to weigh in, so we recommend that you all do. You can find that here. (I couldn’t resist writing in GATTACA, a film that deserves a 4K release if ever there was one.)

Finally today, our friends at Zavvi US and Canada are offering Bits readers in the US a nice discount on top of their already good prices. Which is helpful, given that they have a number of exclusives (4K, Steelbooks, etc) and also will ship European BD and 4K product to the States (which isn’t doing right now). So for your first order with Zavvi, use code TDB10 when checking out to get an extra 10% off. After that, you can use code TDB when spending over £100 (roughly $130 US dollars at today’s exchange rate) to save £10 (roughly $13). Currently, Zavvi has a number of interesting titles available, including these. [Be sure to note that for U.K. 4K Ultra HD titles, the 4K disc is always ALL REGION. Any Blu-rays in the package may be coded for Region B.]...
