Before we begin this afternoon, our own Tim Salmons has turned in another Pick-Ups Blu-ray review for you to check out, this time featuring a look at Synapse Films' Steelbook release of Dario Argento’s Tenebrae (1982). Do check that out here.

All right, the big news today is that Paramount has just officially announced the 6/7 release of the Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan – Director’s Edition on Blu-ray (as we first revealed here on The Digital Bits a few weeks ago). The film itself has been remastered from a new 4K scan, with the participation of director Nicholas Meyer, and will be included on the disc in 1080p in both the original theatrical cut and the slightly longer Director’s Cut, each with 7.1 Dolby TrueHD audio.  [Read on here…]

We’re closing out the week with just a quick update, but first things first...

Congratulations to Elon Musk and everyone Space-X today, for successfully launching a Dragon spacecraft to the International Space Station and safely landing the first stage of the Falcon 9 rocket back on Earth (on a platform out at sea)! That is some serious steely-eyed missile man magic right there.  [Read on here…]
