The big release news this afternoon is that Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has just set Thomas Schlamme’s So I Married an Axe Murderer (1993) for release on 4K Ultra HD on 7/25. The Mike Myers comedy has been mastered from a 4K scan of the original camera negative for its 30th anniversary and will include a new Dolby Atmos sound mix, along with theatrical trailers and 30+ minutes of never-before-seen deleted scenes. You can see the cover artwork above left.
Also today, Kino Lorber Studio Classics has just revealed the 7/18 Blu-ray release of Henry Hathaway’s Nevada Smith (1966), followed by the 7/24 release of Anthony Mann’s A Dandy in Aspic (1968) on the format. Also coming on 7/18 is the Audie Murphy Collection II, which includes Alfred E. Green’s Sierra (1950), Ray Enright’s Kansas Raiders (1950), and George Marshall’s Destry (1954).
And we’re hearing from our retail sources that the new Fast X sequel to The Fast and the Furious will likely arrive on disc in August.
All right, it’s been a rather slow week here at the site news-wise, but I’ve personally been recording from a bout with COVID, so that’s worked just fine for me. I’m about 80% back to normal and expect to be fully recovered early next week. And that should also be good timing, because I expect the pace of new title announcements to pick up a little next week as well.
Be sure to check in here at The Bits early on Monday morning for more. In the meantime, have a great weekend!
