In announcement news today, Scream Factory has set Wes Craven’s The Serpent and the Rainbow for Collector’s Edition Blu-ray release on 1/26/2016 (SRP $34.93).
Warner Bros. seems to be planning to re-issue The Flash: The Complete First Season on Blu-ray and DVD on 12/1, packed with an exclusive action figure. The listing on Amazon says Blu-ray, but the picture shows DVD.
Speaking of Amazon, it seems that 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment and the online retailer are engaged in yet another pissing match again, the upshot of which is that Amazon suddenly doesn’t know when lots of their titles will be available for pre-order again. That includes The X-Files. Go figure. This is what happens when a company like Amazon get so big they utterly dominate their market. They start acting out like an 800-pound gorilla, simply because they can.
Meanwhile, we also have a couple good Amazon details to report: They’re selling the BBC’s Sherlock: Limited Edition Gift Set on Blu-ray for just $99 (49% off the regular price). They also have That 70s Show: The Complete Series up for pre-order on Blu-ray for just $59.99. Thanks to Bits reader John W. for the head-up.
Here’s a look at some new cover artwork...
