Before we get to today’s brief bit of release news, we have two more new disc reviews for you...

Dennis has turned in his thoughts on Ol Parker’s Ticket to Paradise (2022), which is new on Blu-ray from Universal. The film stars Julia Roberts and George Clooney.

And Stephen has delivered a look at Ted Kotcheff’s North Dallas Forty (1979) on Blu-ray from our friends down under at Imprint and Via Vision.

Dragonslayer (4K Ultra HD Steelbook)

And finally today, here’s a title I’m personally thrilled to see arrive on 4K Ultra HD, but that’s taken me completely by surprise: Curzon Film in the UK has just dropped (on December 12) a new 4K UHD Steelbook edition of Wim Wenders’ Wings of Desire (1987)! And the packaging is gorgeous. Here’s a look at that...

Wings of Desire (UK) (4K Ultra HD Steelbook)

This is a brand new restoration overseen by Wenders, which includes a new In Conversation with Wim Wenders at the BFI featurette, along with deleted scenes, the previous commentary with Wenders and Peter Falk, and more legacy extras. Click here or on the artwork above to order the title from We’ve also added it to our 4K Ultra HD Release List here at The Bits accordingly.

How that one slipped by us, I can’t imagine. But what a great Christmas surprise! Wings of Desire is one of my all-time favorite films, so I can’t wait to get my hands on it. (And rest assured, we will be reviewing the title here at The Bits when it arrives.)

That’s all for now. Stay tuned!
