All right, there’s not a whole lot going on today news-wise, so we’re busy working on new disc reviews.

But we did want to check in briefly with a new interesting odds and ends.

To start with, we have a sneak peek at temp cover artwork from our retail sources (in Europe in this case) for Universal’s Spartacus and Jaws on 4K Ultra HD, which are expected to street widely in June or July (street date TBA). You can see Jaws at left and both of them below. This should be close to final, but know that it’s not actually final until the studio officially announces the titles.

Also coming from Universal on 6/2 (only at Best Buy stores in the US) is a new 4K Ultra HD Steelbook version of Ron Howard’s Apollo 13. You also can see that below. [Read on here...]

Meanwhile, Lionsgate’s Requiem for a Dream is now set for 4K Ultra HD release on 5/12. We have leaked retail artwork for that one too.

Warner’s Justice League Dark: Apokolips War will arrive on 4K Ultra HD (along with Blu-ray and DVD) on 5/19. And you can see that cover artwork below as well (click to pre-order the title on Amazon.com).

And finally, we’ve learned that Blue Underground has another horror catalog title planned for release on 4K Ultra HD... William Lustig’s Maniac (1980).

Before we go, Via Vision Entertainment has created new trailer for their debut Blu-ray releases on the Imprint Films label. You can find that here on Facebook.

And here’s that cover artwork we mentioned...

Jaws (4K Ultra HD) Spartacus (4K Ultra HD) Requiem for a Dream (4K Ultra HD)

Justice League Dark: Apokolips War (4K Ultra HD) IP Man 4: The Finale (4K Ultra HD) 1917 (4K Ultra HD)

Apollo 13 Steelbook (4K Ultra HD)

That’s all for now. Have a great weekend and we’ll see you back here on Monday.

Stay tuned...
