Bits BD Review – Bill takes a look at Universal's new Spartacus: Restored Edition http://t.co/Ms7prL0nTE
All right, we’ve got a little bit more release news for you today...
Warner Home Video has set Action Jackson for release on Blu-ray on 8/6. Also newly announced by WHV are Berserk: The Golden Age Arc II – The Battle for Doldrey on BD and DVD on 8/6, DCU: Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox on BD and DVD on 7/30, Bleach Uncut: Set 17 on DVD on 6/11 and Doctor Who: The Snowmen on BD and DVD on 5/28.
Also today, Magnolia Home Entertainment has set The ABCs of Death for Blu-ray and DVD release on 5/21, along with This Girl Is Badass on both formats.
Lionsgate has set the June Carter Cash biopic Ring of Fire on DVD only on 6/4 – the film stars Jewel.
And ARC Entertainment has set Marley Africa Road Trip for DVD release on 5/7, along with Mr. Hockey on both Blu-ray and DVD the same day. Following on DVD only on 5/21 is Picture Day. And on 5/28, ARC will release Dead Mine on both Blu-ray and DVD.
Finally, in news from around the Net today, the summer blockbuster trailer “arms race” is sure heating up big time this week. Late yesterday (probably timed to coincide with the CinemaCon convention), Paramount released the final trailer for J. J. Abrams’ Star Trek into Darkness online. The film hits theaters on 5/17, just one month from now. Not to be outdone, Warner Bros. rolled out its first big full trailer for Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, due in theaters on 6/14. I have to say, while I’m optimistic about both films, Man of Steel especially looks terrific. It’s easy to be fooled by a great trailer these days, but these are sure great trailers. Anyway, here they are for you to check out if you haven’t seen them yet. Be sure to watch ‘em big and in full 1080p...
All right, back tomorrow. Stay tuned!
