All right, we’ll start the new week with a smattering of additional Blu-ray and DVD release news...

First up, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has set The Lunch Box for Blu-ray release on 7/1. Extras will include an audio commentary with writer/director Ritesh Batra.

Cinedigm will release Godfrey Reggio’s Visitors on Blu-ray Combo and digital on 6/10. Composer Philip Glass produced the film’s score. [Read on here…]

Shout! Factory has announced that Walter Hill’s Southern Comfort (1981) will arrive on Blu-ray/DVD Combo on 7/8. Extras will include The Making of Southern Comfort documentary, a gallery, and the film’s theatrical trailer.

XLrator Media has set the Blade Runner-ish sci-fi thriller The Machine for Blu-ray and DVD release on 6/17 (SRP $20.99 and $14.99). Among the films stars is actor Denis Lawson. Remember him? He played Wedge Antilles in the original Star Wars films. You’ll find the cover artwork below.

Lionsgate has set the crime thriller Blood Ties for Blu-ray and DVD release on 6/24. Lionsgate has also set The Trip to Bountiful for DVD only release on 8/5.

Gorgon Video has set Death Spa for Blu-ray release sometime in early Summer. Stay tuned for additional details.

And Severin Films has announced the 3-disc DVD release of Video Nasties: The Ultimate Collection on 6/3. It includes trailers for 72 exploitation films that were banned by British prime minister Margaret Thatcher in the 80s. They’re also releasing new DVD special editions of a pair of Italian ‘nazisploitation’ films – Deported Women of the SS and Gestapo’s Last Orgy. Not my thing, but fascinating.

We’ll leave you with a look at the Blu-ray Disc cover artwork for Cinedigm’s Visitors and Klondike (6/10), Shout!’s Southern Comfort, XLrator’s The Machine, and Olive Film’s Arch of Triumph and The Lost Moment (both due 7/8)...
