The main piece of announcement news today is that Disney has officially confirmed the release of Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier on Blu-ray 3D Combo, Blu-ray Combo and DVD on 9/9. But for some reason Amazon isn’t taking pre-orders yet. Go figure.
Meanwhile, as we’ve mentioned before, Synapse Films has a Prom Night: Special Edition coming on 9/9 as well. You can see the cover artwork on the left.
And Olive Films has announced their September Blu-ray and DVD slate, which is set to include The Big Operator (1959) on 9/16, Distant Drums (1951) and South of St. Louis (1949) on 9/23, and TT: Closer to the Edge (Blu-ray 3D) and Betty Boop: The Essential Collection – Volume 4 (1932-38) on 9/30. On DVD only they also have Shame the Devil due on 9/9, followed by Honour on 9/16, and Daisy: A Hen Into the Wild on 9/23.
