All right, we’ve got just a quick batch of announcements to catch up on this morning...
First of all, just as we first reported here at The Bits many weeks ago, Paramount has officially set Christopher McQuarrie’s Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One for Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD release on 10/31, with the Digital version due on 10/10. Expect Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos audio on the 4K.
Extras on the disc will include audio commentary by McQuarrie and editor Eddie Hamilton, plus a Deleted Scenes Montage, and 7 featurettes (Rome, Venice, Freefall, Speed Flying, Train, and Editorial Featurette: The Sevastopol). Look for 2 4K SKUs... a regular Amaray version and a Steelbook version. You can see the cover artwork at left and also below.
Also today, Lionsgate has set Talk to Me for physical media release on 10/3. It appears that there will be multiple versions: 4K + Blu-ray + Digital, Blu-ray + DVD + Digital, Amazon-exclusive 4K + Blu-ray + Digital, and Walmart Blu-ray + DVD + Digital. [Read on here...]
All will include audio commentary with directors Danny Philippou and Michael Philippou, the In the Grip of Terror featurette, deleted scenes, and the theatrical trailer. The 4K will include HDR10 and Dolby Atmos audio. The Amazon-exclusive 4K will also include video of a Q&A with the Filmmakers. Again, you can see some of the cover art below.
And we’ve got one more new announcement for you: Disney has just officially set the live-action Disney’s Haunted Mansion for Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD release on 10/17, with the Digital version expected on 10/4. Extras will include 2 featurettes (Making Haunted Mansion and 999 Happy Haunts), 7 deleted scenes, and a gag reel. Again, you can see the cover art below. Note that Disney Movie Club will have exclusive packaging, and it appears that Best Buy will have an exclusive 4K Steelbook, while Walmart’s 4K will include an exclusive enamel pin. It may also be that the 4K version is retailer and DMC exclusive. (We will attempt to confirm that.)
Here’s a look at some of that cover artwork...
