Blu-ray & DVD News – Minions, Christmas Vacation: 25th, Jimmy's Hall & lots more indie news http://t.co/k8FbXmRDce
We’re closing out the week here at the site with a quick 3D Dimension column update from Jeff Kleist. It seems some of the online natives are a bit restless regarding the color timing of the new Top Gun 3D Blu-ray master, so Jeff did a little digging on the subject and presents his findings. Do check it out.
In announcement news today, Warner Home Video has set TNT’s Major Crimes: The Complete First Season for DVD only release on 6/4 (SRP $39.98).
20th Century Fox Home Entertainment will release Cheech & Chong’s Animated Movie on Blu-ray and DVD on 4/23. Extras will include “Joint” commentary featuring Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong, a second commentary with Branden Chambers, Eric D. Chambers and Lou Adler, a third commentary with Tommy Chong and Paris Chong, a Low Maintenance Listening Mode, video of Blind Mellon’s recording session for Medical Marijuana Blues and a Cheech and Chong gallery.
And that’s pretty much it, except to say that Home Media magazine has opened up the voting for their 2013 Home Media Awards. Click here and you can vote for your picks, which will be combined with the official judges selections to select the final winners. Voting is open until 4/14. (In the interests of full disclosure, Bits editor Bill Hunt - yours truly - is part of the panel of judges.)
We’ll leave you with a look at the Blu-ray cover artwork for Fox’s Cheech & Chong’s Animated Movie and The Bible (due 4/2), as well as Universal’s In the Name of the Father (5/7)...
Have a great weekend!
