Afternoon, folks!  Let’s run down some today’s announcement news...

Lionsgate has officially announced the Blu-ray and DVD release of Mad Men: Season Six on 11/5 (SRP $49.97 and $49.98).  Extras will include 6 featurettes (Design of a Decade, Recreating an Era, Gay Power!, Gay Pride!, Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out and Summer of Love Archives) and more TBA.  Love the cover artwork – you can see it below.

Also CBS has announced that they’ll release Star Trek: The Next Generation – Season Five on Blu-ray Disc on 11/19 (SRP $129.99).  It will include all 26 episodes, audio commentary, deleted scenes, episode promos and all the previous DVD features, another multi-part documentary (Requiem: A Remembrance of Star Trek: The Next Generation) and the In Conversation: The Klingons and What He Left Behind: The Roddenberry Legacy featurettes.

Also coming from CBS on 11/19 is Star Trek: The Next Generation – Unification (SRP $28.28), which (as was the case with The Best of Both Worlds and Redemption) will feature the 2-part episode edited into a movie version along with a new exclusive documentary called From One Generation to the Next.  You’ll find the cover art for both of these titles below as well.  [...]

Meanwhile, Universal has just set Notting Hill for Blu-ray release on 10/15, which makes sense – that’s the same day that their Love Actually: 15th Anniversary Edition hits stores.  Extras on Notting Hill will include commentary with director Roger Michell, producer Duncan Kenworthy and writer Richard Curtis, 3 featurettes (Seasonal Walk on Portobello Road, Hugh Grant’s Movie Tips and Spotlight on Location), Elvis Costello and Shania Twain music videos, a photo montage and a pair of trailers for the film.

20th Century Fox has announced the direct to Blu-ray and DVD release of Fright Night 2: New Blood – Unrated on 10/1.  Also coming to DVD only on 10/1 is New Girl: Season TwoBones: Season Eight follows on both Blu-ray and DVD on 10/8, along with White Collar: Season Four on DVD only.

Shout! Factory has announced that they’re releasing a Clive Barker’s Nightbreed: Extended Director’s Cut on Blu-ray and DVD in 2014.  Additional details will be announced in the weeks and months ahead.

HBO will release Clear History on Blu-ray and DVD on 11/5 via Warner (SRP $24.99 and $19.97).

Sony is reissuing The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day – Director’s Cut on Blu-ray and DVD on 10/1 (SRP $19.99), featuring the 138-minute version of the film.

And finally, Disney and Pixar have set Cars 3D for Blu-ray 3D release on 10/19 (SRP $49.99).  All the previous extras will carry over.

Here’s a look at the Blu-ray cover artwork for Liongate’s Mad Men: Season Six and CBS’s Star Trek: The Next Generation – Season Five and Star Trek: The Next Generation – Unification.  All three are now available for pre-order on Amazon.com by clicking on the covers...
