All right, we’ve got a quick one for you today, but there’s good stuff ahead so do read on...

First up, we’ve got a trio of new Blu-ray reviews for you all to enjoy this afternoon. Jim has offered his thoughts on Twilight Time’s The Hawaiians (the 1970 sequel to Hawaii, which he’s also reviewed recently here at The Bits) and Delmer Daves’ 1958 Kings Go Forth. Both are worthy of your time and attention. Also, Tim finally got his hands on Disney’s new Star Wars: The Force Awakens Blu-ray and had a thing or two to say about it as well. Do give his review a look.  [Read on here…]

Now then... in announcement news today, here’s something awesome on the catalog front: Universal has just set Jaws 2, Jaws 3, and Jaws: The Revenge for Blu-ray Disc release on 6/14 (SRP $14.98). And yes, Jaws 3 includes a Blu-ray 3D viewing option! As for extras, Jaws 2 will include deleted scenes, storyboards, and 4 featurettes (The Making of Jaws 2, Jaws 2: A Portrait by Actor Keith Gordon, John Williams: The Music of Jaws 2, and The “French” Joke). Jaws 3 will include both 2D and 3D versions of the film. It doesn’t appear that Jaws: The Revenge includes any extras. Looks like audio on all three is DTS-HS Master Audio 2.0. SRP is $14.98 each. [Editor’s Note: I’m checking with the studio to see which version of the film is included on Jaws: The Revenge.] Here’s a look at the cover artwork (click the images to pre-order them on Amazon.com)...

Meanwhile, Sony’s 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray versions of Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters 2 are now available for pre-order on Amazon.com, as is Lionsgate’s Gods of Egypt on 4K UHD. Again, here’s a look at the cover artwork (click to pre-order them on Amazon.com)...

We’ll be back tomorrow morning with a new History, Legacy & Showmanship column from our own Michael Coate, featuring decidedly “Bad News,” if you take our meaning. So we’ll see you then!

Stay tuned...
