All right, we’ve got a pair of new Blu-rays for you today and some mighty release news…

First, Tim has turned in a look at Robert Altman’s Images (1972) on Blu-ray from Arrow Academy for you all to check out.

And I’ve checked in with my thoughts on Fabulous Film’s new Region B Blu-ray box set of Northern Exposure: The Complete Series, which features all 110 episodes in HD with the original uncut music (at long last). Unfortunately, there seems to be no U.S. (Region A) release planned, so you’ll need an all-region capable Blu-ray player to take advantage of it.

I’ll also be checking back in later today with at least one more review of a 4K Ultra HD title, with more on the way soon. So be sure to watch for those. [Read on here...]

The big news today is that Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has set 12 Strong for release on Blu-ray Combo and DVD on 5/1, with the Digital release expected on 4/10. Extras on the Blu-ray will include a pair of featurettes (12 Strong: The Making of an Impossible Mission and Monumental Effort: Building America’s Response Monument).

Also good news: Universal Studios Home Entertainment and GKids are releasing the anime Mary and the Witch’s Flower on Blu-ray and DVD on 5/1. The film was directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi (The Secret World of Arrietty and When Marnie Was There), formerly of Studio Ghibli. Extras will include the Film Completion Press Conference, a Theatrical Promotional Movie, an interview with the filmmakers, the NTV special Creating Mary and the Witches Flower, and A Special Conversation...
