We’ve got a few things for you all today…

First, you may have seen yesterday that our own Michael Coate has a brand new History, Legacy & Showmanship column up celebrating the 40th anniversary of Steven Spielberg’s groundbreaking Jaws. It includes all kinds of great information about the film’s initial theatrical release, as well as trivia and other production information. Best of all, it includes a great roundtable interview with film historians on the impact of the film. Don’t miss it. [Read on here…]

Sorry for the lack of an update yesterday. I apparently slept with my neck bent in a strange position on Tuesday morning, the result of which is that I woke up with a wicked case of vertigo. So I ended up spending most of the day in bed until it passed. Not much else to do. Everything’s fine now. Just let this be a lesson to you kids: A good quality pillow is very important. LOL.

Anyway, the big news today is that Sony has officially announced Justified: The Complete Final Season for Blu-ray and DVD release on 6/2. As fans will already know, the show’s finale aired last night on FX and I think it was pretty great. I’ve really enjoyed this series. Anyway, both the Blu-ray and DVD will include the Hollywood to Harlan featurette (featuring the show’s writers). To this, the Blu-ray will add Directing the Show: Adam Arkin, Dutch Speaks (a vintage interview with writer Elmore Leonard about his thoughts on the show), and deleted scenes.  [Read on here…]

Heads-up re #StarWars: It appears the new Last Jedi #4K (w/score-only track, Meet the Porgs, no Dolby Vision) is only in the Skywalker Saga box for now. Disney says it IS coming separately (Solo too) in the new packaging—just not tomorrow. When I have the date, I'll let you know.
