Election Day... FINALLY! (with White Zombie, Cujo, The Quiet Man, Peter Pan & more)

All right, today is of course Election Day here in the States. In honor of the joyous occasion/apocalypse (depending on the outcome and your own particular political leanings) we thought we’d review an appropriate and recently released title on Blu-ray – Warner’s new HD upgrade of The American President. Enjoy!

Note that we’ll have the regular weekly update of the Release Dates & Artwork section posted later this afternoon, so be sure to check back for it.

In the meantime, Amazon is now taking pre-orders on Disney’s Peter Pan: Diamond Edition on Blu-ray. Street date is 2/5/2013 as expected (SRP $44.99).

Kino Lorber has set a White Zombie: Kino Classics Remastered Edition for Blu-ray and DVD release on 1/29/2013. This 1932 gem stars Bela Lugosi.

Olive Films will release a Cujo: 30th Anniversary Edition on Blu-ray on 1/22/2013, along with King of the Pecos (1936), Frontier Horizon (1939) and The Quiet Man (1952). SRP is $24.95 each.

And Magnolia has set Nobody Walks and Nature Calls for Blu-ray and DVD release on 1/22 as well.

Don’t forget... Fox’s remastered Patton Blu-ray streets today, along with Von Ryan’s Express. And the studio has Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure coming on Blu-ray next week (11/13). Here’s the cover art (click on each to pre-order from Amazon.com)...
