Criterion Pan’s Labyrinth coming, plus new pre-orders & early 4K UHD sales stronger than early Blu https://t.co/9Xr1LFF8g0
Meanwhile, Sony has set This Is the End… for Blu-ray/DVD Combo release on 10/1 (SRP $30.99). Extras will include audio commentary with directors Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg, 7 This Is The Marketing featurettes (including Directing Your Friends, Marketing Outtakes, Aziz Haunts Craig, James and Danny Confessional, Jonah Confessional, Seth and Jay Confessional and The Cast) and the film’s redband Sizzle trailer.
And here’s something amusing… Syfy is brining Sharknado to digital theater screenings around the country on 8/2. I know Syfy looks at the film’s ratings success as a feather in their cap, but I watched about five minutes of the thing. Ugh. Anyway, the film is coming to Blu-ray and DVD on 9/3.
Finally today, we’ve got a gallery of photos from last week’s Comic-Con International 2013 convention in San Diego – took a while to get them all formatted and sort out the good from the bad, but here you go. Enjoy!
Finally, today appears to have been the official last day of shooting on The Hobbit trilogy down in New Zealand. As it happens, director Peter Jackson essentially live-blogged the whole thing on his Facebook page, starting and ending the day with his cat Mr. Smudge. My favorite thing about all this: Peter Jackson’s got a cat named Mr. Smudge. Man after my own heart.
Have a great weekend, everyone! Stay tuned…
