My Two Cents: Blu-ray News & More - So... how was YOUR Thursday? http://t.co/ak9bePZiMW
All right, here at The Bits today, our own Russell Hammond has just updated the Release Dates & Artwork section with all the latest Blu-ray, DVD and Video Game cover artwork and Amazon.com pre-order links. As always, a portion of anything you order from Amazon after clicking through to them from our links goes to help support our work here at The Bits and we really appreciate it. Don't forget as well that Amazon is continuing to run great deals on movies, hardware and other items right up through Christmas, so if there's something you're looking for there are probably deals to be had.
In announcement news today, we already mentioned that MGM and Fox are releasing Woody Allen's Sleeper and Hannah and Her Sisters on Blu-ray Disc on 1/15, but here's exciting news: They've officially set the recently-remastered The Terminator for Blu-ray release on 2/19, complete with 5.1 DTS-HD MA audio. It IS the confirmed remaster. Extras will include 7 deleted scenes and 2 featurettes (Creating The Terminator: Visual Effects & Music and Terminator: A Retrospective). And on 1/29, look for the Die Hard: 25th Anniversary Blu-ray Collection, featuring Die Hard, Die Hard 2: Die Harder, Die Hard with a Vengeance and Live Free or Die Hard, as well as an all-new bonus disc called Decoding Die Hard. The bonus disc will include 7 featurettes (Modern-Day Hero, Along for the Ride, Bad to the Bone, Punishing Blows, Explosive Effects, Reinventing the Action Genre and The Right Hero for the Right Time).
Meanwhile, Sony has set Robot and Frank for DVD only release on 2/12. Look for it to include audio commentary with director Jake Schreier and writer Christopher Ford and a poster campaign gallery. Sony has also set A Perfect Ending for DVD only release on 2/5, and Kill for Me for DVD only release on 2/12.
Anchor Bay Entertainment and The Weinstein Company have set the high school football documentary Undefeated for release on Blu-ray and DVD on 2/9.
Shout! Factory has set Rocko's Modern Life: The Complete Series for DVD release on 2/26.
And Warner Home Video has moved the street date for its Gossip Girl: The Complete Sixth and Final Season DVD release from 2/19 to 2/12. Adjust your plans accordingly.
Here's a look at the Blu-ray cover artwork for Fox and MGM's The Terminator (Remastered), Sleeper and the Die Hard: 25th Anniversary Blu-ray Collection. Sleeper is now available for pre-order on Amazon - we'll add links to the other two as they become available...
