From all of us here at The Bits today: A Happy Friday to YOU, sir! (And/or madam.)
All right, couple things today…
First, I’ve got that Blu-ray review I promised yesterday: My thoughts on Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, coming in HD from Warner on 11/12. I know this film divided movie geeks over the summer, but I have no uncertainty in my feelings for it. I think it’s a great take on the mythos and a rare superhero film that I’m actually excited about. And the Blu-ray’s not half bad either. Do check it out. [Read on here…]
All right, we’ve got a quick rundown of new release news for you this morning, and then I’ll be back tomorrow morning with a major new Blu-ray review for you. First though, the news…
Sony has announced that Insidious: Chapter 2 will arrive on Blu-ray Combo and DVD on 12/24 (SRP $40.99 and $30.99). Extras will include 6 featurettes (Peripheral Vision: Behind the Scenes, Ghostly Transformation, Leigh Whannell’s Insidious Journal, The Haunting of Insidious 2, Work in Progress: On Set Q&A and Insidious: Spectral Sightings).

Well folks, we hope you all had a nice Halloween… and we sure hope you all enjoyed this year’s Hell Plaza Oktoberfest. Dr. Jahnke and the rest of The Bits team pulled out all the stops to make it a goodun for you all, so there you go. We sure appreciate your readership.
Now then, today’s update is going to be a quick news roundup from the last couple days, and then we expect to be back next week with more reviews, including a couple titles you guys have probably been waiting for, including Warner’s Man of Steel and New Line’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey – Extended Edition among others.

Okay, we’ll be back later today with our regular post, but this was too good not to jump in with it immediately. For about the next 13 hours, Amazon.com is running a “Gold Box Deal of the Day” on Fox’s complete Alien Anthology Blu-ray box set and also the 2-disc Prometheus on Blu-ray – just $20 for the box and $10 for Prometheus! The Alien Anthology box is one of the best special edition box sets ever produced, created by our old friend Charles de Lauzirika. So if you’ve been looking at it and haven’t picked it up yet, today’s the day. You’ll never get a better price than $20!
Back later! Stay tuned…

We’ve reached the end! The Hell Plaza Oktoberfest begins its final day here at The Digital Bits!
Dr. Jahnke’s final Oktoberfest review for you on this chilly Halloween morning is a true classic of horror cinema that’s yet to be surpassed: F.W. Murnau’s 1922 Nosferatu! It’s coming to Blu-ray and DVD on November 12th from our friend at Kino Lorber and it’s a beautiful new release. Check out Jahnke’s review and read all about it. [Read on here…]
