Criterion Pan’s Labyrinth coming, plus new pre-orders & early 4K UHD sales stronger than early Blu https://t.co/9Xr1LFF8g0
Finally this morning, a quick bit of unofficial street date news: A number of our retail sources are telling us that Warner Home Video will likely release Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity on Blu-ray 3D Combo, Blu-ray Combo and DVD on 2/25. Given Warner’s recent trend towards retail exclusives with both Pacific Rim and Man of Steel, you can almost certainly (and unfortunately) expect that the bonus features will be split over different retailers. There will likely be exclusive retail packaging as well. We’ll have to watch for official announcements to be sure, but of course the studio’s official press releases seldom acknowledge retail exclusive SKUs. If you guys hate this practice as much as we do (and based on your e-mails over the last few months, we know you do), we suggest you take every opportunity to let the studio know about it in any way you can – Facebook, Twitter, etc. Meanwhile, the title is now available for pre-order on Amazon.com here and here.
Back with more later. Stay tuned...
