We have one more new review for you to close out the week: Tim has taken a look at Kazuhiko Yamaguchi’s Wolf Guy on Blu-ray from Arrow Video, featuring the great Sonny Chiba. Do give it a look.

In announcement news today, WB Home Entertainment has just set Shameless: The Complete Seventh Season for Blu-ray and DVD release on 9/26. The studio has also confirmed the 9/19 Blu-ray and DVD release of Arrow: The Complete Fifth Season.

Meanwhile, BBC Home Entertainment has set Ripper Street: Season Five for Blu-ray and DVD release on 8/29.

Universal will release JD Dillard’s Slight on Blu-ray and DVD on 8/1. Also coming that day from the studio on both formats is Joseph Ruben’s The Ottoman Lieutenant. [Read on here…]

Kino Lorber has revealed that they’re working on a new Blu-ray and DVD release of William Dieterle’s I’ll Be Seeing You (1944), starring Ginger Rogers, Joseph Cotten, and Shirley Temple. No street date is yet available.

A distributor called Altered Innocence has set Kuba Czekaj’s Baby Bump for release on Blu-ray on 9/5.

For anime fans, Bayview Entertainment will release the Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin – Chronicle of Char and Sayla Collection on Blu-ray on 8/1. There will be a DVD version as well that same day.

Mill Creek Entertainment has set Blackbeard: The Complete Miniseries for Blu-ray release on 8/1. The series stars Angus Macfadyen and Jessica Chastain.

And Scream Factory has just kicked off a 50% sale on nearly all of their currently available Blu-ray and DVD titles in celebration of their 5th anniversary. The sale will run until 6/19. Act fast, as certain popular titles are selling out quickly.

Finally this week, we wanted to leave you with this… last night in Los Angeles, thousands of fans gathered Downtown to experience a special ceremony honoring the late Adam West. L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti and Police Chief Charlie Beck, joined by actors Burt Ward and Lee Meriwether, lit the Bat Signal on the side of City Hall. We simply can’t think of a more fitting way to honor West and his legacy. Here’s a photo taken by our old friend Ed Peters at the event (thanks Ed!)…

That’s all for this week. See you Monday!
