We’re kicking things off with a trio of additional Blu-ray reviews, including Dennis’ take on Deadbeat at Dawn from Arrow, Tim’s look at Torso, also from Arrow, and David’s thoughts on The Last Hurrah from Twilight Time.

We’ve also got a bit of new announcement news for you...

First, Paramount has just officially announced the Blu-ray and DVD release of The Cloverfield Paradox on 2/5. This has, up until now, been a Netflix exclusive. The film will include Dolby Atmos audio and two featurettes, Things Are Not as They Appear: The Making of The Cloverfield Paradox and Shepard Team: The Cast.

20th Century Fox Home Entertainment has just set The Hate U Give for release on Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD on 1/22. Extras will include audio commentary (by George Tillman, Jr., Amandla Stenberg, Russell Hornsby, Angie Thomas, and Craig Hayes), 3 extended scenes, and 6 featurettes. Audio is 7.1 DTS-HD MA on the Blu-ray editions. [Read on here...]

Fox has also set The Old Man and the Gun for release on Blu-ray and DVD on 1/15, with the Digital release due 1/1. Extras will include audio commentary by writer/director David Lowery, a gallery, and 5 featurettes.

Meanwhile, HBO has set The Deuce: The Complete Second Season for release on Blu-ray and DVD on 2/5, with the Digital release set for 12/3. Extras will include a trio of featurettes.

Speaking of Arrow, the company has confirmed their December Blu-ray slate as follows: Look for The Serpent’s Egg on 12/4, the De Palma & De Niro: The Early Years – Limited Edition, The Apartment, and Django: Limited Edition (in both regular and Steelbook packaging) on 12/11, and Bloody Birthday on 12/18.

Kino Lorber Studio Classics has announced a couple more February titles, including Burt Lancaster’s The Midnight Man (1974) and George Cukor’s A Bill of Divorcement (1940) aka Never to Love. Look for both of them on Blu-ray and DVD on 2/26.

And GKids and Fathom Events are bringing the Never-Ending Man: Hayao Miyazaki documentary to theaters on 12/13 and 12/18 in select theaters. We certainly hope to see this on Blu-ray eventually too. Here’s the trailer for the film...

Speaking of trailers, we hear there’s a new Avengers trailer hitting the Interwebs tomorrow, so prepare yourselves for the meltdown.

Finally today, and on that note, we’re hearing from multiple industry and retail sources now that the next Marvel catalog titles to arrive on 4K Ultra HD early next year, tied to either Captain Marvel or the next Avengers film, will be Doctor Strange and Captain America: The First Avenger. As I mentioned yesterday, Doctor Strange actually has an Amazon listing with a street date of 1/15. The listing doesn’t specify the format, but the $34.99 SRP suggests 4K. Meanwhile, Captain America: The First Avenger recently popped up on with a February street date. We suspect the street dates are still fluid, but we also strong believe both titles are on the way to the format. We’ve updated our 4K Ultra HD Release List here at The Bits accordingly.

That’s all for now. Stay tuned...
