My Two Cents
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has just officially set IT for release on Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD on 1/9/2018 (SRP $35.99, $28.98, and $44.95, respectively). The Digital HD release is expected on 12/19. These SKUs will all include the theatrical version of the film. (Note that a Director’s Cut is rumored for release at a later date in 2018, but that is not yet confirmed.) The film is based on the book by Stephen King and is directed by Andy Muschietti. The Blu-ray versions will include deleted scenes and 3 featurettes (Pennywise Lives!, The Losers’ Club, and Author of Fear). Both will include Dolby Atmos audio and the 4K disc will include Dolby Vision HDR. [Read on here…]

First though, we’ve posted a bunch of new reviews for you this morning (and last night), including Tim’s look at Scream Factory’s The Paul Naschy Collection II box set and also my thoughts on Paramount and Comedy Central’s new South Park: The Complete First Season, South Park: The Complete Second Season, South Park: The Complete Third Season, South Park: The Complete Fourth Season, and South Park: The Complete Fifth Season, all on Blu-ray Disc. New 4K Ultra HD reviews are in the works as we speak, so watch for those by this time tomorrow. [Read on here…]
All right, we’ve got some new reviews for you here at The Bits today...
Tim has taken a look at Lionsgate’s Slaughter High, part of their Vestron Video Collector’s Series on Blu-ray. I’ve also posted my thoughts on Luc Besson’s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets in 4K Ultra HD, also from Lionsgate, a title that includes both Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos. Both are worth a look. We’re also currently working on a review of HBO’s Westworld: The Complete First Season in 4K and other titles too, so do check back later and tomorrow for those.
In announcement news today, the big news is that Lionsgate has finally rescheduled their delayed Terminator 2: Judgment Day 4K Ultra HD release for 12/26. As many of you know, the title had originally been set for release on 10/3, but was delayed due to a problem with the master. Pre-orders should start up again soon on Amazon, so watch this link (and the cover link below). [Read on here…]
