Also, a couple quick follow-ups from yesterday

First, it looks like Eagle Rock’s Queen: A Night at the Odeon (due 11/20) is an SD Blu-ray. Their press release was a little unclear, but we’ve confirmed that’s what it is.

And the individual Blu-ray SKUs for Fox’s The X-Files are slowly being added to Amazon’s pre-order database, but only some of them are in so far. We’ll update our links and post final cover artwork as soon as we have it.

Here’s a little more new Blu-ray cover artwork for you, with Amazon pre-order links if available, including final artwork for Warner’s The Man from Uncle...

The Man from Uncle (Blu-ray Disc)    Mr. Robot: Season One (Blu-ray Disc)    Deep in My Heart (Blu-ray Disc)

Infinitely Polar Bear (Blu-ray Disc)    The Girl on the Train (Blu-ray Disc)    Eight Men Out (Blu-ray Disc)

Stay tuned...
