Boy, no sooner did we file our early update today, then the good folks at Shout! Factory and Scream announced a few great new catalog Blu-ray release, including a pair of titles we’re very excited for!  [Read on here…]

On 5/3, the company is releasing Bruce Malmuth’s 1981 terrorism thriller Nighthawks, starring Sylvester Stallone, Billy Dee Williams, and Rutger Hauer. Extras are TBA.

Then on 5/24, the company is releasing Bad Influence (1990), Great Expectations (1974), and the 1986 serial killer classic Manhunter in a new Collector’s Edition! The latter will be a 2-disc set and director Michael Mann is personally involved in crafting new extras.

By the way, also coming on 5/24 is MST3K: Volume II re-issued on DVD for just $37.99, including Cave Dwellers, Pod People, Angels Revenge, and Shorts Vol. 1 (featuring The Home Economics Story, Junior Rodeo Daredevils, Body Care & Grooming, Cheating, A Date With Your Family, Why Study Industrial Arts?, and Chicken of Tomorrow).

One other thing today: Our very own Tim Salmons has launched his own YouTube channel featuring a regular audio Podcast Salmonella. Do give it a listen!

Here’s a look at the cover art for Nighthawks, the Manhunter: Collector’s Edition, and MST3K: Volume II. [ pre-order links added!]...
