All right, we’ve got some new announcements to report today…
Warner Home Video is releasing a war film classic on Blu-ray and DVD on 10/1 – The Big Parade (1925). The Blu-ray will come in 64-page book packaging with audio commentary by historian Jeffery Vance with director King Vidor, as well as The Men Who Made the Movies: King Vidor documentary and a vintage 1925 Studio Tour short. See the cover art below.
Warner has also just made it official: The original House of Wax is coming to Blu-ray 3D on 10/1 (SRP $35.99). Extras will include audio commentary, 3 featurettes (House of Wax: Unlike Anything You’ve Seen Before!, Round-the-Clock Premiere: Coast Hails House of Wax and the 1933 Mystery of the Wax Museum) as well as the film’s theatrical trailer. For this new release, MPI scanned the film in 4K and fully restored and realigned both the “left eye and right eye” elements for optimal 3D image quality. The Blu-ray will also include a 2D version.
