Also today, Paramount’s Mission: Impossible – Fallout is now available for pre-order on Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K on Amazon.com (click here for the 4K link) and our information is that the street date will be some time in November. Let me tell you... I went last night to an IMAX screening with friends, and it’s every bit as good Ghost Protocol and Rogue Nation, maybe even better. I haven’t been on the edge of my seat like that in a long time. It delivers incredible stunts, all shot for real, many in large format, with Cruise as his own stuntman. It’s a great continuation of the story of Rogue Nation, and even features some nice call backs to the earlier films. It’s really a beautiful piece of action/spy filmmaking. See it in IMAX or Dolby Cinema as soon as possible and absolutely don’t miss it.
And in other news this afternoon, Disney and Fox shareholders have just approved Disney’s purchase of Fox, making this a done deal. There’s a whole long process that still has to work it’s way to completion, but Disney will be the proud owner of the Fox studio catalog. You can read more here.
We’ll leave you with a look at the cover artwork for The Shield, temp art for Mission: Impossible – Fallout, and more. Click on each to pre-order the title on Amazon.com if available (links will be added as they come online)...
That’s all for now. We’ll be back next week with more news, reviews, and a new Michael Coate column as well. Have a great weekend!
