My Two Cents: Blu-ray News – Fox reveals its first wave of 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray titles with HDR, due Q1 2016 http://t.co/cPfKXAUdQa
Level 33 Entertainment has set The Mole Man of Belmont Avenue for DVD and digital release on 9/10. The horror comedy features Robert Englund.
Entertainment One will release the Dolph Lundgren action film Blood of Redemption on Blu-ray Combo and DVD on 9/24 (SRP $29.98 and $19.98).
Disney’s Nashville: The Complete First Season comes to DVD on 9/17.

Universal will release The Best Man on Blu-ray and DVD on 11/5.

I know you’ve all been sitting on pins and needles waiting for this one, but MTV’s Teen Mom: The Complete First Season is headed to DVD on 10/1... exclusively at Walmart (which somehow seems oddly appropriate).
Here’s something interesting: Arrow Films has released a new remastered special edition Blu-ray of Terry Gilliam’s Time Bandits in the U.K. We hear it’s pretty great, but sadly it’s region coded and will not play on U.S. BD players. We’ve asked Image Entertainment (which has the U.S. rights) if there’s any chance of an updated U.S. release and we’ll let you know if and when we hear back from them. Meanwhile, Gilliam has given a good interview with the BFI about the film and the restored release and it’s worth watching here if you’re a fan of the film.
Finally, you can now pre-order Universal’s Kick Ass 2, Sony’s Elysium, Warner’s We’re the Millers, Summit Entertainment’s Red 2, Disney’s Planes and the 20th Century Fox comedy The Heat on Blu-ray and DVD on Amazon.com. Street dates for all are TBA. And MGM’s terrific Bond 50 Blu-ray box set is on sale on Amazon.com right now for 57% off – it’s just $130.
Here’s a look at the Blu-ray cover art for Universal’s High Plains Drifter (due 10/15), temp art for Warner’s Pacific Rim (TBA) and Scream’s Body Bags...
