In other news today, Full Moon Pictures has announced an Ultimate Puppet Master Collectible Trunk Blu-ray box set on 3/13 (SRP $299.99) containing all 11 films in the series with special “Toulons Trunk” packaging and a mini Blade figure. Each disc will have significant extras including the original Videozones featurettes. The set is pricey, but if you’re a fan it’s pretty cool.
Also, Arrow Video is releasing Basket Case (1982) on Blu-ray on 2/27.
We first revealed this several weeks ago, but Universal has now confirmed it: F. Gary Gray’s Straight Outta Compton is coming to 4K Ultra HD on 2/6. We’ve updated our handy 4K Ultra HD Release List accordingly.
FYI, additional 4K Ultra HD titles we’ve learned are coming including Jigsaw (Lionsgate), Paddington 2 (not sure who the U.S. distributor will be yet but possibly Warner Bros), and Daddy’s Home 2 (Paramount). It also appears that Sony’s The Dark Crystal is coming in February. Again, the 4K Ultra HD Release List has been updated to include them.
Once again, here’s a look at the cover artwork for all three Blu-ray versions of Blade Runner: 2049 (with Amazon.com pre-order links if available – we’ll add the 3D link as soon as it’s up)...
And that’s all for this week. We’ll be back on Monday with new reviews, plus all the usual breaking release news.
Have a great weekend everyone. If you live in the L.A. area, please stay safe amid all these crazy wildfires. Cheers!
