One quick bit of announcement news today: Well Go USA has officially announced Terry Gilliam’s The Zero Theorem for Blu-ray and DVD release on 1/20 (SRP $29.98 and $24.98). Extras will include 4 featurettes (Behind the Scenes, The Visual Effects, The Costumes, and The Sets).
Now then... the main reason for today’s early post on The Bits is unfortunately this: Legendary Hollywood TV producer Glen A. Larson has passed away. As sci-fi fans will no doubt be aware, Larson was the creator of the original Battlestar Galactica (which we recently confirmed with Universal is coming to Blu-ray in early 2015). But he also created, co-created and/or produced many other fan favorite TV series from the 70s and 80s, including Magnum P.I., Knight Rider, Quincy M.E., The Six Million Dollar Man, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, Galactica 1980, The Fall Guy, B.J. and the Bear, The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries, Switch, Alias Smith & Jones, Manimal, Automan, The Highwayman, and many more. Larson passed away on Friday after a battle with cancer. He was 77. We tip our caps today in his honor. You can read more here at The Hollywood Reporter.
We might be back later with more, pending any breaking news of consequence, but we’ll return tomorrow for sure reviews of the new Hayao Miyazaki Blu-rays from Disney and Touchstone, including The Wind Rises.
