my two cents 1000

Afternoon, folks!  We’re kicking off the new week today here at The Bits with a new Blu-ray review from our very own Tim Salmons… Disney’s Frankenweenie.  Enjoy!

In announcement news today, Lionsgate has set The Kick for DVD release on 4/2, followed by Sexy Evil Genius on DVD and Boss: Season Two on both Blu-ray and DVD on 4/9.

Warner Home Video has set To the Arctic: IMAX for Blu-ray 3D Combo, Blu-ray Combo and DVD release on 3/26.

Speaking of Warner, the studio is now taking pre-orders via Warner Shop.com for The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Sixth Season on Blu-ray and DVD with a street date of 9/10.  They also have The Vampire Diaries: The Complete Fourth Season listed as coming on both formats on 8/27.

Also, we’ve learned from Warner today that their Fringe: The Complete Fifth and Final Season on Blu-ray and DVD (due 5/7) will include the A Farewell to Fringe featurette, video of the Fringe panel at Comic-Con 2012, audio commentary by the producers (presumably at least on the finale) and a gag reel.

In other news today, Amazon.co.uk is reporting that CBS and Paramount have set Star Trek: The Next Generation – The Best of Both Worlds for Blu-ray release on 4/29.  This is the two-part episode edited together as a movie, complete with exclusive bonus content available only in this disc.  Check out the cover artwork below.

Sony has set Men at Work: The Complete First Season for release on DVD only on 3/26.

Artsploitation Films has set Russian director Alexander Vartanov’s Bullet Collector for release on DVD on 2/19.

PBS and the BBC have set Masterpiece Classic: Mr. Selfridge for release on Blu-ray and DVD on 4/23.

And Image Entertainment will release Ghost Hunters: Season 8, Part 1 on DVD on 3/19, followed by Frankenstein Theory! on DVD on 3/26.

Finally, we’ve got a quick follow-up on Friday’s Echo Bridge/Miramax catalog BD news.  The titles we mentioned are all due in stores widely on 3/26 and 5/7 in two separate release waves, but they’re going to be available as Best Buy exclusives before that time, and in fact the first wave (3/26 wide date) is now slowly starting to arrive in Best Buy locations.  Just FYI.

Here’s the BD cover art for CBS’ Star Trek: The Next Generation – The Best of Both Worlds (note that this link is to the Amazon.co.uk page until officially announced here in the States), plus the BBC’s Spies of Warsaw (due 4/16) and Warner’s Terminator Anthology (3/5)…

Stay tuned...

A Columbo/Rockford Files crossover episode would have been the greatest event in television history.
