Also today, our own Michael Coate has just posted a new History, Legacy & Showmanship column celebrating the 50th anniversary of John Boorman’s Point Blank with historian Dwayne Epstein. It’s a fun interview, so be sure to check it out.

And here’s something exciting: Umbrella Entertainment is bringing back its Drive-In Delirium series on Blu-ray with the newly-announced April release of Drive-In Delirium: The New Batch. This third volume in the series will include “6 hours of non-stop sex, violence, vehicle destruction, cockamamie cosmic carnage (not to mention an overload of Bronson badassness)” in the form of fully remastered film trailers. You can watch the promo for the release here:

Also today, it appears that Disney’s official announcement for Star Wars: The Last Jedi will happen on 2/20, based on retail solicitation artwork we’ve seen over the weekend.

And speaking of Star Wars, you’ve probably now seen the full trailer for Disney and Lucasfilm’s Solo: A Star Wars Story, but if you haven’t, here’s a look...

That’s all for now. Back tomorrow. Stay tuned...
