Displaying items by tag: Paths of Glory 4K

I’m about to dive back into disc reviewing here this afternoon, but before I do we have two new reviews for you this morning and a major piece of release news as well. First those reviews...

Stephen has checked in with his thoughts on a fascinating Russian fantasy film from 1956, Aleksandr Ptushko’s Ilya Muromets, which also happens to be the first Russian film in both anamorphic widescreen and color. Russian cinema is fascinating, and this film is no exception, so it’s definitely worth a look on Blu-ray from Vinegar Syndrome.

Stephen has also given Cy Endfield, Roger Corman, and Gordon Hessler’s De Sade (1969) a look on Blu-ray from Kino Lorber, also a fascinating film from American International Pictures.

Now for that news... Marvel and Disney have just officially set Sam Raimi’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness for release on Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD release on 7/26, with the Digital release anticipated for 6/22. [Read on here...]

Today’s update is a quick one, as we’re doing a lot behind-the-scenes work here at the site today. (I’m personally digging into some interesting upcoming title rumors.) But we do have some good updates for you on forthcoming 4K Ultra HD titles, and there’s a bunch of new 4K titles available for pre-order.

First up... a great piece of announcement news: Our friends at Kino Lorber Studio Classics have just revealed that they’re going to be releasing Stanley Kubrick’s B&W war classic Paths of Glory (1957) on 4K Ultra HD sometime early in 2022. Street date is listed as “coming soon.” As many of you will already know, the film stars Kirk Douglas as a French army commander in World War I. It’s a brilliant piece of work, and should look great in 4K.

While we’re talking Kino Lorber Studio Classics, the company has also provided updates on other classic catalog titles that are coming soon to 4K. Out of Sight (1998) is currently due in Spring 2022. To Live and Die in L.A. (1985) is awaiting the attention of director William Friedkin to grade and approve the Dolby Vision HDR master. And Orson Welles’ Touch of Evil (1958) is now set to arrive on 4K UHD in February. [Read on here...]
