In other news, Bits readers are reporting that Amazon’s pre-order listing for The Hobbit Trilogy: Extended Edition on Blu-ray and DVD seems to be popping in and out of existence today, so maybe the retailer is finally getting ready to put the full accurate listing up. It should include DVD, Blu-ray, and Blu-ray 3D options for the Trilogy, as well as a special retail-exclusive giftset option (including a WETA statue) for The Battle of the Five Armies – Extended Edition on Blu-ray. We’ll monitor and see what happens.
And in a bit of actual release news this afternoon, Kino has set Brian Trenchard-Smith’s The Siege of Firebase Gloria (1989) for release on Blu-ray on 12/8. They also have Sidney Salkow’s Twice Told Tales (1963) due on Blu-ray on 12/1.
Have a great weekend and we’ll see you back here on Monday!
