We’re closing out the week with a bunch more interesting bits of announcement and release news, and a little bit of detail on some already announced upcoming titles. And just to let you know… if you come back here on Monday, you’ll find Dr. Adam Jahnke’s epic Blu-ray review of CBS’s Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery box set! So don’t miss it.

Now then… let’s get to some good announcement news. Are any of you fans of Sergio Leone and/or Spaghetti Westerns? If so, you’ll be pleased to hear that MGM is finally releasing Leone’s Duck, You Sucker (a.k.a. A Fistful of Dynamite, a.k.a. Once Upon a Time in the Revolution) on Blu-ray Disc on 10/7 (SRP $19.99). You can pre-order it here on Amazon. Now if we could just get The Colossus of Rhodes from WHV, we’d have nearly all of the key Leone classics. [Read on here…]

We’ve got more announcement news for you today. Not a whole lot, but a few things. And in particular, something interesting for you Stanley Kubrick fans. All as our very own Dr. Jahnke is knee-deep in working on his epic-lenth review of CBS’s Twin Peaks new Blu-ray set (watch for that very soon).

So let’s start with that, shall we? Warner Home Video has just solicited on Amazon.com a new Stanley Kubrick: The Masterpiece Collection Blu-ray box set as an Amazon.com exclusive release. Due on 11/14 (SRP $199.99 but Amazon has it for $139.99), the 10-disc box set will come in the studio’s usual Ultimate Collector’s Edition style packaging with 8 films – Lolita, Dr. Strangelove, 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, Barry Lyndon, The Shining, Full Metal Jacket, and Eyes Wide Shut. Disc 9 will include the Stanley Kubrick: A Life in Pictures and O’ Lucky Malcolm documentaries, while Disc 10 will include the all-new Kubrick Remembered documentary, the new-to-Blu-ray Stanley Kubrick in Focus documentary and the new-to-the U.S. Once Upon a Time… A Clockwork Orange documentary. The set will also include a 78-page hardcover photo book. Here’s what the open contents looks like. [Read on here…]
