Here's a look at the open Steelbook packaging for Event Horizon...
Lionsgate has finally set a wide release of Emile Ardolino’s Dirty Dancing (1987) for release on 4K Ultra HD on 8/23. This will be the same disc that was previously a Best Buy exclusive (reviewed here on The Bits), simply in standard Amaray packaging rather than Steelbook. The title is now available for pre-order on Amazon and you can see the cover art above left and also below.
Lionsgate has also set Alex Garland’s latest horror film, Men, for release on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital on 8/9.
Scream Factory has confirmed the 8/16 4K Ultra HD release of Child’s Play 1-3. Each will include a new 4K scan of the original camera negative with Dolby Vision HDR, plus new Atmos mixes, and a TON of new and legacy special features (among them a host of retrospective interview featurettes). You can see the complete list of extras here.
Synapse Films (via the MVD Entertainment Group and in conjunction with Arrow Video) is releasing Dario Argento’s Tenebrae on 4K Ultra HD on 7/26 in honor of the film’s 40th anniversary. The 3-disc box set will include “hours of extras and, for the first time ever, the alternate U.S. theatrical cut, Unsane.” The title is strictly limited to 6000 copies only, so act fast if you want it.
VCI Entertainment has set a Children Shouldn’t Play with Dead Things: 50th Anniversary Edition for release on Blu-ray on 10/11. You can see the cover art below.
