All right, 300 and the Resident Evil 4K releases are now official with details, so we’ll get to those in a moment...

First, Tim has turned in his thoughts on Dwight H. Little’s Bloodstone (1988), now on Blu-ray from our friends at Arrow Video.

And Dennis has given a Something Weird/Kino Classics title a look on Blu-ray too, a double feature of Sam Newell’s She Should’a Said No! and W. Merle Connell’s The Devil’s Sleep, each released originally back in 1949.

They’re all a hoot, so do give them a look.

Now then, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has issued its press release, making Zack Snyder’s 300 official for 4K Ultra HD on 10/6. [Read on here...]


This is just a quick update to let you know that Zavvi has just dropped an exclusive 4K Ultra HD Steelbook edition of Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

It’s now available for pre-order here.

Zavvi has a number of these 4K Steelbook exclusives (you can see some currently available titles here) and they tend to sell out very quickly.

As in sometimes the same day they go on sale.

So we recommend that you act quickly if you want this one... [Read on here...]


All right, this is a quick early morning update here at The Bits to let you all know that Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is officially releasing Zack Snyder’s 300 on physical 4K Ultra HD on October 6 (SRP $27.99). You can see the cover artwork at left and also below.

Extras will include all of the features from the previous Blu-ray release, including audio commentary by Snyder, deleted scenes, webisodes, multiple behind-the-scenes featurettes and more. It appears that high dynamic range on the 4K disc will be standard HDR10, with Dolby Atmos audio. The package will also include the film on Blu-ray, as well as a digital copy.

But that’s just the first of two big 4K surprises this morning... [Read on here...]


We’ve got another quick update for you today with some good release news.

But first a new Blu-ray review...

Tim has just turned in his thoughts on Sergio Martino’s early giallo film The Strange Vice of Mrs. Wardh (1971), now available on Blu-ray from Severin Films. Do give it a look.

The big announcement news today is that Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has just officially set The Flintstones: The Complete Series for Blu-ray release on 10/13 (SRP $84.99).

It will also be made available on Digital on 10/6 (SRP $74.99). [Read on here...]


As you can imagine, things are a little busy here at The Bits this week, and for good reason. As I mentioned yesterday, I’m continuing to dig pretty deep with studio and industry sources on a number of significant home video rumors that have been circulating over the past few days.

I covered the status of the Star Trek: The Motion Picture – Director’s Edition remaster yesterday, so let’s move on to another title.

Today I have an update for you on another of the rumors you’ve probably read about online: Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s plans for The Middle Earth 4K Collection, the long-awaited release of Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films on physical 4K Ultra HD.

Here’s the latest from our sources... [Read on here...]
