We have a quick President’s Day news update for you here at The Bits with some good title announcement news, both new and catalog. And of course, another new disc review.

Stephen has checked in with his in-depth thoughts on Chloe Zhao’s Eternals in 4K Ultra HD from Disney and Marvel, a somewhat polarizing entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We think you’ll find his take interesting, and you can find it right here.

In new announcement news today, 20th Century Studios has just put Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story (2021) up for pre-order on Amazon in Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD with a street date of 3/15.

The 4K disc will include English Dolby Atmos audio, with HDR10 high dynamic range. [Read on here...]

Extras haven’t been fully announced yet, but will include over 90 minutes of behind-the-scenes material. We expect an official press release any time now. But you can see the cover artwork above left and also below, where you’ll find it available for pre-order on Amazon.

Also today, our friends at Kino Lorber Studio Classics have just revealed that they’re bringing John Frankenheimer’s 1962 neo-noir political thriller The Manchurian Candidate to 4K Ultra HD later this year, complete with a new Dolby Vision HDR grade. The street date is currently listed as coming soon.

And that’s all for now, except to say that Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story, Guillermo del Toro’s Nightmare Alley, and Peter H. Hunt’s 1776: 50th Anniversary Director’s Cut are all now available for pre-order in 4K Ultra HD from Amazon by clicking on the cover art below. As always, whenever you order anything though one of our Amazon links, you’re helping to support our work here at the site and we truly appreciate it...

West Side Story (2021) (4K Ultra HD) Nightmare Alley (4K Ultra HD) 1776: 50th Anniversary Director's Cut (4K Ultra HD)
