My Two Cents: Blu-ray/DVD News Catch-up – Universal to restore 15 silent films, plus Olive's July Slate & more http://t.co/ic656p7DFE
Speaking of Warner, in addition to the newly-remastered Rankin/Bass The Return of the King DVD we mentioned yesterday, it looks like the studio is also releasing remastered DVD editions of the Rankin/Bass animated The Hobbit and Ralph Bakshi’s animated The Lord of the Rings on 7/22 as well, along with a DVD box set of all three titles in the same package. But so far it still looks like they’re DVD only. Of the three, only the Bakshi The Lord of the Rings is currently available on Blu-ray.
And that’s really pretty much it for today, other than to remind you that Game of Thrones returns this weekend to start its fourth season on HBO. Oh, and the new Captain America: Winter Soldier movie opens this weekend too. So enjoy that.
We do have some random BD cover art for you, so here’s that (including the aforementioned Veronica Mars)...
Have a great weekend!
