All right, sorry for the lack of an update yesterday. We’re dealing with a plumbing leak here at the house so real life occasionally finds a way to intrude on regular work. Nothing major though and well on the way to being repaired. Just an inconvenience.

We have some announcement news today and a bit of industry news as well.

First up, Universal Pictures Home Entertainment has made Paul Greengrass’ News of the World official for Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD release on 3/23, with the Digital release expected on 3/4. Looks like the 4K disc will include HDR10 high dynamic range and Dolby Atmos audio. Extras on will include deleted scenes, feature commentary with Greengrass, and 4 featurettes (Partners: Tom Hanks & Helena Zengel, Western Action, Paul Greengrass Makes News of the World, and The Kiowa). You can see the cover artwork at left and also below.

Meanwhile, Screen Media has set Skyfire for Blu-ray and DVD release on 4/6.

Screen Media is also expected to release The Outpost in Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD on 5/18. [Read on here...]

All right, sorry for the late post today. It’s been a little nuts here at The Bits home office this afternoon.

In any case, Dennis has a new review for you. He’s checked out Alan J. Pakula’s The Parallax View (1974) on Blu-ray from our friends at the Criterion Collection. You’ll find that here.

In announcement news today, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and DC have set the animated Justice Society: World War II for release on Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD on 5/11, with the Digital release expected on 4/27 (SRP $29.98 and $39.99). Extras will include the DC Showcase – Kamandi: The Last Boy on Earth! animated short, the Adventures in Storytelling – Justice Society: World War II featurette, a sneak peek of the next DCU film (Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One), two Look Back featurettes (Justice League vs. Teen Titans and Wonder Woman: Bloodlines), and two episodes From the DC Vault (Justice League: Legends, Part One and Justice League: Legends, Part Two).

Evening, folks. We’ve got a quick news update for you here today at the site.

But first, a new disc review: Tim has just posted his thoughts on William Lustig’s Vigilante (1982) on 4K Ultra HD from the good folks at Blue Underground. And it sounds like it’s a pretty terrific release if you like the film, which stars Robert Forster and Fred Williamson. Do check it out.

Also a reminder today: We posted a new History, Legacy & Showmanship column from our own Michael Coate on Friday—a piece that was delayed from the very end of 2020 due to all of the site maintenance we’ve been doing over the past several weeks. This one is a look back at the early 70mm cut of The Empire Strikes Back, featuring a new roundtable discussion with historian and soundtrack producer Mike Matessino along with director Saul Pincus. We think you’ll really enjoy it, so do give that a look here if you missed it.

Now then... there’s not a lot of release news to report today, but we do have a few things worth mentioning. [Read on here...]
