Now then… the big release news today is that Universal Studios Home Entertainment has set Steven S. DeKnight’s Pacific Rim Uprising for release on Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD on 6/19, with the Digital release expected on 6/5. Extras on the Blu-ray versions will include audio commentary with DeKnight and 10 behind-the-scenes featurettes (Hall of Heroes, Bridge to Uprising, The Underworld of Uprising, Becoming Cadets, Unexpected Villain, Next Level Jaegers, I Am Scrapper, Going Mega, Secrets of Shao, and Mako Returns).
Also, Best Buy is now taking pre-orders for the 4K Ultra HD release of the original Jack Reacher, a title we first noted was coming from Paramount a couple weeks ago. Street date is 6/26.
Finally today, based on retailer information, it appears that 7/24 will be the street date for Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One in Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD. We’ve updated our 4K Ultra HD Release List here at The Bits accordingly.
Back tomorrow. Stay tuned…
