All right, we’ve got a couple more quick updates for you this afternoon, in addition to yesterday’s Star Trek Into Darkness Blu-ray pre-order post (which now includes UPDATED details about the exclusive QMx Phaser replica included in the Limited Edition Gift Set, so do check it out.)…

Universal has set The Office: Season Nine for release on Blu-ray and DVD on 8/13, along with The Mindy Project: Season One on DVD only.  Also coming on DVD only from Universal on 7/16 is Alphas: Season Two.

Disney has set a Peter Pan: Return to Neverland – Special Edition for Blu-ray Combo release on 8/20.

Sony has set Dead Man Down for Blu-ray and DVD on 7/9 (SRP $35.99 and $26.99).  Extras will include a trio of featurettes (Revenge and Redemption: Crafting Dead Man Down, Revenge Technique: The Cinematography and Staging the Action: The Firefights).

Also coming from Sony on Blu-ray and DVD on 6/25 is Pablo Larrain’s No.  And Flying Monkeys is coming on DVD only on 7/16.

Meanwhile, Image Entertainment and RLJ Entertainment have set a 7-disc Prime Suspect: Complete Collection for Blu-ray release on 8/27 (SRP $119.99).

The Tommy Lee Jones/General Douglas McArthur film Emperor is coming from Lionsgate to Blu-ray and DVD on 8/13.

Finally today, Home Media is reporting that Best Buy has now begun selling (as of yesterday) Sony 4K ultra HD displays in some 700 of its retail store locations around the country.  Sony has also apparently announced that it’s going to be making a 4K player – the FMP-X1 4K Media Player – available for $699 starting this summer.

Here’s a look at the Blu-ray Disc cover artwork for Dead Man Down, Peter Pan: Return to Neverland and final retail art for Universal’s Midway (due 6/4)…
