All right, as predicted Trek Into Darkness spoilers are starting to trickle out in the wake of today’s premiere screening in Australia, so if you’re hoping to stay spoiler free, be advised you’d better be on your guard pretty much everywhere online.
Here at the site today, our own Russell Hammond has posted the weekly update of the Release Dates & Artwork section with all the latest Blu-ray, DVD and video game cover artwork and Amazon.com pre-order links. As always, a portion of anything you purchase from the online retailer after clicking through to them from our links goes to help support our work here at The Bits and we sure do appreciate it!
In announcement news today, Warner Home Video is diving into more Paramount catalog titles on 8/13, including some that haven’t been released on Blu-ray before. Look for Presidio, Shaft (2000) and Flashdance.
Warner has also set Action Jackson and Passenger 57 for Blu-ray release on 8/6.
Meanwhile, Funimation will release Lupin the Third: Woman Called Fukiko on Blu-ray on 7/30.
Indomina will release Filly Brown on BD and DVD on 7/30.
Fox’s Hell on Wheels: The Complete Second Season has been set for BD and DVD on 7/16.
Here’s something cool on the classic film front: Flicker Alley has set Cinerama Holiday and Cinerama: South Seas Adventure for release on Blu-ray/DVD Combo on 10/22 (SRP $39.95 each but you can pre-order them for just $29.96 on the Flicker Alley website). Thanks to Bits reader Anders O. for the heads-up!
And for you music fans, Eagle Rock Entertainment has set Paul McCartney and Wings: Rockshow for release on Blu-ray Disc and DVD on 7/11 (SRP $34.98 and $29.98). The 1980 concert film has been one of Dr. Jahnke’s Most Wanted titles, so it’s nice to finally see it on disc, restored, remastered and with a new 5.1 sound mix to boot!
Here’s a look at the BD cover art for Rockshow, as well as the two Cinerama titles…
