In release news today, Scream Factory has just unveiled the final cover artwork for its awesome new Army of Darkness: Collector’s Edition Blu-ray, which is now officially due on 10/27 (SRP $26.97). The extras will be announced in the weeks ahead, but you can see the cover artwork on the left there. This is my Boomstick!
Also today, Twilight Time has launched their very own website here, where they’ll be posting new release news, cover artwork and other cool material related to their Blu-ray and DVD catalog (in addition to their Facebook page). It’s looking very nice.
Meanwhile, Barnes & Noble has just kicked off their regular 50% off Criterion Collection Blu-ray and DVD sale, so be sure to take advantage of the great prices if there are titles you need.
Elsewhere around the Net today, Wired has a nice feature story looking behind the scenes at the great film preservation and restoration work going on at The Library of Congress’ Packard Campus for Audio-Visual Conservation in Culpeper, Virginia. It’s a good read and is well worth your time, so check it out when you have a minute.
Also, we want to take a moment today to acknowledge the passing of film producer Jerry Weintraub (Nashville, Diner, The Karate Kid) and actor Amanda Peterson (Can’t Buy Me Love). You can read more via the links provided at Variety.
All right, we’ll be back with a few more new Blu-ray reviews tomorrow. Stay tuned!
