Now it’s time to run down some of the major announcement news that’s broken over the past few days, and we have some real gems to report for you. Let’s start with 4K Ultra HD catalog news...

First up, our friends at Shout! and Scream Factory have just unveiled a great batch of new 4K Ultra HD titles for August release, including John Milius’ Red Dawn (1984) as a Shout Select 4K UHD release (a Collector’s Edition box with exclusive pins and a poster will also be available directly from the Shout! website) and new 4K UHD Collector’s Editions of Child’s Play, Child’s Play 2, and Child’s Play 3 on 8/16, followed by Mamoru Hosoda’s BELLE on 4K Ultra HD on 8/30. You can see the cover artwork for these at left and below the break. Note that the release of Scream’s 4Ks of Cat People and The Funhouse have also been pushed back to 8/2 and 8/9 respectively (from 7/19 and 7/26).

Kino Lorber Studio Classics has now teased new 4K UHD releases of George P. Cosmatos’ Leviathan (1989) and Ben Stiller’s Tropic Thunder (2008). Both are listed as “coming soon.” That last one is particularly interesting, as it’s part of a new content distribution deal the company has signed with Paramount Home Entertainment. The deal apparently includes some 65 titles in all on Blu-ray (8 of which are being released on disc for the first time), including 16 on 4K Ultra HD. Among these are old Republic titles, though reportedly none released previously by Olive Films. Given KLSC’s recent focus on Sergio Leone westerns, we think it’s a good bet that Leone’s Once Upon a Time in the West (1968) will be among the 4K titles. [Read on here...]

We’re wrapping things up here at The Bits this week with three more new disc reviews, all of them from Tim Salmons...

First up is Tim’s take on Jorge Grau’s The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue (1974), which is coming on Blu-ray on 6/7 from Synapse Films in regular Amaray, and is already available in Steelbook packaging. Tim has reviewed both versions here and here.

Tim has also given a look at Genndy Tartakovsky’s Hotel Transylvania 2 on Blu-ray 3D, a throw-back animated title released back in 2016 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

In terms of release news today, Synapse Films has announced that a new 4K Ultra HD edition of Dario Argento’s Tenebrae (1982) is coming on 7/26. Two versions will be available, a 3-Disc 4K UHD Limited Edition (of 6,000 units) and a 3-Disc 4K UHD “Variant Cover” Limited Edition (of just 2,000 units that’s exclusive to DiabolikDVD).

Morning, everyone!

Tim kicks off the new week here at The Bits by checking out David Cronenberg’s Eastern Promises in 4K Ultra HD from Kino Lorber Studio Classics. Tim has also updated our old friend Jim Hemphill’s review of Guy Hamilton’s Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins to include the new Kino Lorber Studio Classics Blu-ray release.

Stephen has taken a look at Dwien Baltazar’s Ode to Nothing and Henry Levin and George Pal’s The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm on Blu-ray from Vinegar Syndrome and the Warner Archive Collection respectively.

Dennis has turned in his thoughts on Sam Peckinpah’s The Osterman Weekend on Blu-ray from Via Vision.

And finally, I’ve taken a look at Shout! and GKids’ new wide-release standard edition of Weathering with You in 4K Ultra HD.

As always, more reviews are on the way this week so be sure to stay tuned for them. [Read on here...]
