I’m working on some major new 4K Ultra HD reviews here at The Bits this afternoon, the first of which may get posted tonight. So I only have time for another very quick news update today. BUT... there’s a bit of breaking catalog release news that’s well worth mentioning here.

First, our friends at Arrow Video have just revealed their November Blu-ray and 4K slate, which includes a few gems...

It starts with Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street on 11/17 in both Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD (a UK only title, but it’s already been released here in the States on both formats by Paramount). Also coming that day are Quentin Dupieux’s Incredible But True (2022) and Robert Wise’s Audrey Rose (1977), each on Blu-ray only. The former is a UK only title, while the latter will be released in the US, UK, and Canada.

Next up is their previously-announced Shawscope: Volume Two – Limited Edition Blu-ray box set on 11/21, which will also debut in the US, UK, and Canada. The 10-disc set will include The 36th Chamber of Shaolin, Return to the 36th Chamber, Disciples of the 36th Chamber, Mad Monkey Kung Fu, Five Superfighters, Invincible Shaolin, The Kid with the Golden Arm, Magnificent Ruffians, Ten Tigers of Kwangtung, My Young Auntie, Mercenaries from Hong Kong, The Boxer’s Omen, Martial Arts of Shaolin, and The Bare-footed Kid. Two of the set’s discs will also be CDs with music from the films. There’s a 60-page book of essays and liner notes on each film as well. [Read on here...]

Finally, look for Kevin Reynolds’ Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991) on 11/28 in Blu-ray and 4K Limited Editions, as well as Blu-ray and 4K Steelbook Limited Editions. Unfortunately, these will all be UK only titles (Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves is available for pre-order here on now).

Here’s a look at the cover artwork for the complete slate (click here or on the image to visit the Arrow website)...

Not to be outdone, our friends down under at Via Vision Entertainment have unveiled their Imprint Films slate for November as well, each all-region Blu-ray titles...

They include Rick Rosenthal’s Distant Thunder (1998), Fernando Meirelles and Kátia Lund’s City of God (2002), Lou Adler’s Ladies and Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains (1982), Robert Mandel’s School Ties (1992), the Directed by Roland Joffee (1984-1992) box set—which includes The Killing Fields (1984), The Mission (1986), Fat Man and Little Boy (1988), and City of Joy (1992)—and the After Dark: Neo-Noir Cinema: Collection Two (1990-2002) box set—which includes Blue Steel (1990), Internal Affairs (1990), Crimson Rivers (2000), The Way of the Gun (2000), The Yards (2000), and Narc (2002). It should be noted that MANY of these titles are making their first-ever appearance on the Blu-ray format here.

Once again, here’s a look at the cover artwork for the complete slate (click here or on the image to visit the Imprint Films website)...

And one last bit of release news: We’ve officially confirmed that the Universal Classic Monsters: Icons of Horror Collection – Volume 2 4K box set is coming to the US on 10/11, along with Ultra HD/Blu-ray combo singles of the previous Volume 1 titles... Dracula (1931), Frankenstein (1931), The Wolf Man (1941), and The Invisible Man (1932). Pre-orders should begin to appear over the weekend and we’ll share the cover art and Amazon pre-order links when they go live.

Now then... be sure to check back here later today and throughout the weekend, as I expect to start posting reviews of some out-of-this-world 4K Ultra HD catalog titles that many of you have been waiting a long time for. Watch my Twitter feed for the individual review links as I get them posted here at the site.

Stay tuned!
