Morning, folks!

After Friday’s web issues (which continued yesterday), we’re back with a normal daily news post here at The Bits and also some new disc reviews. But we’re going to be doing some additional work all this week to try and make some improvements to the server. So updates over the next few days may be a little spotty. However, we’re working on lots of new disc reviews, including Independence Day: Resurgence and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon on 4K Ultra HD which we hope to post later this week.  [Read on here…]

Speaking of which, I have a review of Paramount’s Star Trek Beyond on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray format for you this morning, which streets on 11/1. The film is pretty good. The disc is a little bit of a different story. Read on for the details.

Tim has also just completed new reviews of Cat’s Eye and Stephen King’s It in his latest Pick-Ups column here. So be sure to check those out.

In announcement news this morning, Starz and Anchor Bay have set Hands of Stone for release on Blu-ray and DVD on 11/22. The film stars Robert De Niro, Edgar Ramirez, and Ellen Barkin.

The Warner Archive has set Stanley Donen’s It’s Always Fair Weather (1955), which stars Gene Kelly, for Blu-ray release on 11/22.

This is interesting: It appears that 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment is finally going back and releasing the early seasons of Prison Break on Blu-ray on 12/6 (specifically 1, 2, 3, and 4 - click the links to pre-order).

Well Go USA has set Phantasm: Ravager for release on Blu-ray and DVD on 12/6.

And Paramount’s Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is now available for pre-order on Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray format. Street date is TBA.

Bits #4K Review – Our in-depth review of @DisneyStudios & @Lucasfilm_Ltd’s complete 27-disc @StarWars: The Skywalker Saga box set is here—every film, every disc, every extra! #UltraHD #Bluray thedigitalbits.com/item/star-wars…
The Digital Bits
Heads-up #4K #UltraHD and #Bluray fans: It looks like Warner's The Goonies is now due on 6/2, with Birds of Prey due on 5/12.

Heads-up re #StarWars: It appears the new Last Jedi #4K (w/score-only track, Meet the Porgs, no Dolby Vision) is only in the Skywalker Saga box for now. Disney says it IS coming separately (Solo too) in the new packaging—just not tomorrow. When I have the date, I'll let you know.
