There are unconfirmed reports that Warner is also working on The Polar Express, Gravity, and The Matrix. Additional titles I’ve personally seen 4K Ultra HD tests of (in private meetings at CES) include The Godfather and Lawrence of Arabia, but whether they’ve been fully mastered and authored for released yet is unconfirmed.

Afternoon, everyone! I hope all those of you here in the States had a happy and safe Thanksgiving weekend with your family and friends. We’ve got a couple interesting things for you here today, so let’s get right to it...

First, we have a pair of new Blu-ray reviews for you to enjoy. Tim has checked out Twilight Time’s The Pirates of Blood River and also Arrow Video’s new Hellraiser: Limited Edition Steelbook. Both are worth your time, so please give them a read. And I’m working on more new reviews myself, so watch for those soon.

Now then, today is Cyber Monday so the various online deals continue, including this one: Warner Archive is having a sale featuring 4 titles for $44. Click here for that and act fact to take advantage. [Read on here…]

All right, we’ve got one more new 4K Ultra HD review for you today, and that’s my in-depth look at Warner’s new Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. My review of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in 4K has also now been fully updated to reflect the information I’ve heard back from Warner on its transfer.

Also, at some point in the next day or so (turkey coma permitting of course), I’ll have a review of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban in 4K up for you as well. [Read on here…]

All right, we’ve got one more review for you guys at the moment, which is Tim’s look at Shout! Factory’s Into the Night: Collector’s Edition – a new Shout Select title. I’m working on another Harry Potter 4K UHD review, which I hope to have up a bit later. And I’ve updated my Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone 4K UHD review to reflect corrected information, which is that the title was mastered from a new native 4K scan and not a 2K DI upsample as originally believed (and I’m double checking this with the studio just to make sure). The first two Potter films were released theatrically before the practice of using digital intermediates became common. Thanks to those Bits readers who spotted that.

Also, very quickly: Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy in 4K Ultra HD is now available for pre-order on Amazon from Warner Bros (click here or on the artwork below). It appears that The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises are going to be variable aspect ratio (for the IMAX footage) and that all three (and all of the films in the Nolan 4K Collection as well) will use the original theatrical audio mixes in lossless DTS-HD Master Audio format.

We’ve got more reviews for you to check out today here at The Bits, including my thoughts Warner’s Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone on 4K Ultra HD and also Tim’s take on Arrow Video’s Doberman Cop: Special Edition.

A quick heads-up: I’m aware that the Potter cover link goes to a broken page on Amazon – for some reason the order page for that title is MIA. We’ll add it as soon as it goes back live and we link to the Harry Potter 8-Film Collection 4K set in the review text. More reviews are coming this week, so keep checking back. [Read on here…]

Let’s get right down to business to start the new week…

First up, we’ve got a trio of new disc reviews for you to check out. I’ve offered my thoughts on Sony’s new A Few Good Men: 25th Anniversary Edition on 4K Ultra HD, which is one of the best film-based catalog titles I’ve seen yet on the format in terms of A/V quality. I’ve also posted a review of Netflix’s Target-exclusive Stranger Things: Season 1 on Ultra HD, which is native 4K but has no HDR and only lossy audio – a real disappointment, all things considered. Meanwhile, Tim has posted his review of Shout! Factory’s new Mystery Science Theater 3000: Volume XXXIX box set on DVD. Note that more Blu-ray and 4K reviews are on the way all this week, so keep checking back. [Read on here…]

All right, we’ve got a few things for you today...

First, our own Michael Coate posted a great new History, Legacy & Showmanship retrospective last night celebrating Steven Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind on the occasion of the film’s 40th anniversary. Michael’s column looks back at the film’s initial theatrical run and features another great roundtable discussion of film historians. It’s a good read, so be sure to give it a look.

Now then... a quick commentary. Almost every day, I get asked this question in some form via email or social media: “Why no 3D?” As in: My favorite film was available in 3D in the theater, but how come the studio didn’t release it on Blu-ray 3D for the home? [Read on here…]

We’ve got some great new announcements for you today. First up though, Tim has turned in a review of Dan O’Bannon’s The Resurrected on Blu-ray from our friends over at Scream Factory. It’s a fun disc, so do give it a look if you’re of a mind to. Now then...

In announcement news today, Monsieur David Lynch has, his very own bad self, announced the forthcoming Blu-ray and DVD release of Twin Peaks: The Third Season via Twitter today. Look for it on 12/5 from CBS Home Entertainment and Showtime. We expect that they’ll have cooked up some nice extras to go with that tasty slice pie, so watch for further details in the weeks ahead. You can see the cover artwork below. We’ll add the Amazon link as soon as it goes live.

Also on the TV front today, are there any Game of Thrones fans in the house? HBO has just officially set Game of Thrones: The Complete Seventh Season for release on Blu-ray and DVD on 12/12, with the Digital HD version due on 9/25. [Read on here…]

All right, this is just a quick update, as we have work happening on the server today.

But... we’ve got final details for you – and official cover artwork – on the Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD release of Luc Besson’s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets from Lionsgate. (We’d listed Sony as the distributor yesterday – that’s incorrect. Sorry. Loooooong day.)

In any case, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets will street on Blu-ray Combo, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD Combo on 11/21, as expected, with the Digital HD release due on 11/7. The 4K Ultra HD release will feature both Dolby Vision HDR – which should make it a real stunner – and also Dolby Atmos audio. [Read on here…]

We’ve got a bit of exclusive breaking news for you this morning here at The Bits, and as promised it’s a 4K Ultra HD announcement…

Sony Picture Home Entertainment is releasing Rob Reiner’s A Few Good Men on the 4K Ultra HD format on 11/7, only at Best Buy stores as a retail exclusive.

Nominated for 4 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, the film stars Tom Cruise, Jack Nicholson, Demi Moore, Kevin Bacon, Kiefer Sutherland, and Kevin Pollack. [Read on here…]
