You can see the cover artwork for the set below and read more here at EW. We’ll add the Amazon.com pre-order link as soon as it goes live.
Also today, Lionsgate has now officially set all four Hunger Games films – The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, Mockingjay, Part 1, and Mockingjay, Part 2 – for release on 4k Ultra HD Blu-ray format on 11/8. Each will feature High Dynamic Range and Dolby Atmos audio, and will include the Blu-ray version of the film as well (with such extras as were on the movie Blu-rays for each title). SRP is $22.99 each and you can see the cover artwork below (and pre-order them on Amazon by clicking on each)…
As you can see, we’ve also posted the final cover artwork for Sony’s 4K UHD releases of The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons, both of which are due on 10/11.
And finally today, I’ve just gotten my hands on Warner’s new Signature Edition Blu-ray edition of Brad Bird’s amazing animated film The Iron Giant, which is due in stores on 9/6, and let me tell you: It’s absolutely terrific. The film looks and sounds better than ever and the new extras are wonderful, personal, and even moving. Not only that, the disc has a featurette that takes you down into the hallowed “Salt Mine” in Kansas where Hollywood archives all of its rarest film assets – something I don’t think I’ve ever seen anywhere else before on disc. I’ll have a full review of the title here on The Bits tomorrow, but in the meantime: RUN, don’t walk, to order yourself a copy. You can do so here or by clicking on the cover art below. The Blu-ray is just $9.99 on Amazon and it’s a treasure. There’s also a swaggy UCE box set version available for $74.99 (but know that the disc-based content in each version is exactly the same – the box just gives you an art book and additional collectibles). Do not miss it!
That’s all for now. We’ll be back with more tomorrow, so see you then!
