Let’s close out the week here at The Bits with a couple of additional Blu-ray reviews, shall we?

I’ve offered my own thoughts on Warner’s recent The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Blu-ray, and Tim has posted a look at Anchor Bay’s Goodnight Mommy.

We’ll be back with more reviews next week, including my in-depth take of Fox’s new The X-Files: The Complete Series Blu-ray box set, which the little green men of UPS have just dropped off on my doorstep. So be sure to watch for that.  [Read on here…]

In terms of announcement news, there’s not much today, except that our friend Frosty over at Collider has managed to learn (in a video interview with J.J. Abrams) that the Force Awakens will probably have about 10-20 minutes worth of deleted scenes, some of which will almost certainly end of up on the eventual Blu-ray. You can check that out here.

Also today, Lionsgate has The Last Witch Hunter arriving on Blu-ray and DVD on 2/2. They’ve also set Man Up and Freeheld both for BD and DVD release on 2/2.

Arrow Video has set the Death Walks Twice: Two Films by Luciano Ercoli (includes Death Walks on High Heels and Death Walks at Midnight) Blu-ray/DVD Combo box set for release on 3/29 (SRP $69.95). The company has also set Black Mama, White Mama for Blu-ray release on 3/22 (SRP $29.95), as well as Rage of Honor on 3/15 (SRP $29.95).

And Mill Creek Entertainment is releasing Kevin Connor’s 2004 Frankenstein: The Miniseries on Blu-ray on 2/16 (SRP $14.98). It stars Alec Newman, Julie Delpy, Donald Sutherland, and William Hurt.

We’ll leave you today with a look at Blu-ray cover artwork for some of the titles we’ve just mentioned (with Amazon pre-order links if available)...

The Last Witch Hunter (Blu-ray Disc)    Black Mama, White Mama (Blu-ray Disc)    Death Walks Twice (Blu-ray Disc)

Freeheld (Blu-ray Disc)    Man Up (Blu-ray Disc)    Rage of Honor (Blu-ray Disc)

Have a great weekend. See you Monday!
