The big release news today is that Disney has officially set Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War for Blu-ray 3D Combo, Blu-ray Combo, and DVD release on 9/13, with the Digital HD, Digital 3D, and Disney Movies Anywhere release due in 9/2. Extras will include audio commentary with directors Anthony and Joe Russo and screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, deleted and extended scenes, a gag reel, the 2-part United We Stand, Divided We Fall – The Making of Captain America: Civil War documentary, and 2 featurettes (Captain America: The Road to Civil War and Iron Man: The Road to Civil War). There will also be the Open Your Mind: Marvel’s Doctor Strange exclusive sneak peek featurette. Note that Best Buy will have a retail-exclusive version of the Blu-ray 3D Combo in Steelbook packaging. [Read on here…]

Here’s a look at the Blu-ray cover artwork for both, along with Warner’s The Blacklist: The Complete Third Season (click the cover art to pre-order on Amazon.com and support The Bits)...

Also today, Mill Creek Entertainment has announced that it has licensed the rights to release Universal’s Knight Rider: The Complete Series and Miami Vice: The Complete Series on Blu-ray here in the States, using the same assets that were prepared for those series’ international release on the format. Knight Rider: The Complete Series is a 16-disc set officially due in stores on 10/4 (SRP $99.98). Miami Vice: The Complete Series will be a 20-disc also set to street on 10/4 (SRP $99.98). Here’s what those will look like (again, click to pre-order on Amazon.com and support The Bits)...

Finally today, you can see one more title there. Earlier this year, we heard that Warner and director George Miller planned to release a black and white version of Mad Max: Fury Road on Blu-ray. Now it looks like we’re getting the first peek at it. Warner Europe has just listed an Amazon Germany-exclusive Mad Max: High Octane Collection for Blu-ray release on 9/29. It’s set to include Mad Max, Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior, Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome, and Mad Max: Fury Road, along with the Mad Max: Fury Road “Black and Chrome” Edition in B&W. It also includes the Madness of Max documentary, existing extras and (apparently) 4 hours of new bonus features including Going Mad, Road War, and more. We expect that some variation of this set will be released here in the States as well, and we’re checking with Warner Bros Home Entertainment to see what they say. We’ll let you know when we hear back from them. We’ve included the Amazon Germany pre-order link on the artwork there, but we do not yet know if it will be fully compatible for non-European hardware, so caveat emptor applies. In the meantime, here’s a fan-made trailer for Fury Road in B&W to give you a taste of what’s to come...

That’s all for now. Stay tuned...
