Also today, I’ve completed three more Blu-ray reviews for you, including James Marsh’s Oscar-nominated The Theory of Everything from Universal, Errol Morris’ A Brief History of Time documentary from Criterion (a good match for The Theory of Everything for obvious reasons), and also Steven Spielberg’s long-awaited Munich, another Universal title now available exclusively at Best Buy. (It releases widely on Blu-ray on 5/5). Enjoy!
In announcement news today, Warner has FINALLY made The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies official on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD on 3/24 (SRP $44.95 for the Blu-rays and $28.98 for the DVD). We covered all the details and posted the artwork yesterday, but one additional note is that the discs will include a behind-the-scenes video on the making of The Last Goodbye music video. We expect the Extended Edition of the film to be released on Blu-ray and DVD in November.
In other release news today, Anchor Bay and Starz have set Tim Burton’s Big Eyes for Blu-ray and DVD release on 4/14, starring Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz. The disc will include The Making of Big Eyes featurette and Q&A Highlights.
Also, 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment has set Journey into the Pyramid for Blu-ray and DVD release on 5/5, with a digital version arriving on 4/17.
And Lionsgate will release the After Dark title Bedlam on DVD on 4/28, with a digital release due on 4/14.
Here’s a little bit more cover artwork…
We’ll be back tomorrow with no less than FOUR more new Blu-ray reviews, so be sure to check back in the morning. Stay tuned…
