Well, it’s a bit of a slow news day today.  Except of course for this: Deadline Hollywood and others are reporting that Star Trek Into Darkness director J.J. Abrams is officially signing a deal with Disney and Lucasfilm to direct Star Wars: Episode VII.  Fascinating news, and of course it’s setting the geek world abuzz today online.  We’ll have to see how everyone feels about this after seeing Into Darkness.

In Blu-ray and DVD news (speaking of J.J. Abrams), Warner has just confirmed that Fringe: The Complete Fifth Season will arrive on both formats on 5/7, the same day as The Complete Series which was revealed yesterday.  SRP for is $49.99 for the Blu-ray and $39.98 for DVD.  No word yet on extras.

Warner has also set LEGO Batman: The Movie for Blu-ray and DVD release on 5/21 (SRP $24.98 and $19.98).

Anchor Bay Entertainment has set Escapee for Blu-ray and DVD release on 4/16.

PBS has set The Reagan Presidency and NOVA scienceNOW: How Smart Can We Get? for DVD only release on 2/26.

And Image Entertainment has set Fast Girls! coming on DVD on 2/26.

Stay tuned…
