Lionsgate has just issued its press release for the Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD release of Saban’s Power Rangers (2017). Look for the discs on 6/27, as we mentioned yesterday, with the Digital HD release expected on 6/13. Extras on the Blu-ray versions will include audio commentary with director Dean Israelite and writer John Gatins, the 9-part The Power of the Present documentary (includes Rangers Then to Now, Building the Team, Beyond the Rangers, Suiting Up, Rangers, Welcome to Training, Rangers in the Wild, It’s Morphin Time, Power Ballad: Music and Sound, and This is Your Destiny), deleted, alternate, and extended scenes, outtakes, and the film’s theatrical trailer also with optional commentary by Israelite. The 4K disc will include Dolby Atmos audio and will feature Dolby Vision HDR. Note that the Blu-ray will also feature Dolby Atmos.

All right, for those of you who might be interested, I’ve posted a review of the new Heat: Director’s Definitive Edition Blu-ray from 20th Century Fox. In a nutshell, the picture and sound are substantially upgraded, all the extras carry over from past BD and DVD editions, and there’s an hour of new content too. It’s well worth the $8 it’ll cost you to upgrade on Amazon right now, should you so choose (and you should).
Speaking of Fox, the studio has just officially set Logan for release on Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD release on 5/23. That’s only three weeks from now. We’re waiting on the official details from Fox, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, the release is expected to include the theatrical cut, Logan: Noir (a black and white version of the film), audio commentary by director James Mangold, deleted scenes with optional director’s commentary, and the Making Logan documentary. It also appears that Wal-Mart will get a retail exclusive version with commemorative posters. [Read on here…]
