Afternoon, folks. We’re sure many of you are looking forward to the first weekend of the new year today, and we’re also gearing up for CES next week here at The Bits, so we’ll make this quick today.

First of all, in 4K release news, Paramount has set Daddy’s Home 2 for release on Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD on 2/20. They’ll have the original Daddy’s Home available on 4K that same day. [Read on here…]

Disney has announced a new Lady and the Tramp: Walt Disney Signature Collection Blu-ray for release on 2/27. In addition to previous special features the new edition will include Walt & His Dogs, Stories from Walt’s Office, and How to Make a Meatball and Other Fun Facts About Lady and the Tramp. You can see the cover artwork above left.

Meanwhile, Sony has now set LBJ for release on Blu-ray and DVD on 2/6.

Well Go USA will release the thriller Reset on Blu-ray on 2/6.

Kino Lorber has revealed that it’s working to bring Barry Sonnenfeld’s Big Trouble (2002) to Blu-ray and DVD (street date TBA). There’s a new 2K restoration of Joan of Arc (1948) coming from Kino to both formats on 2/27. And on 3/13, look for the W.C. Fields silent films It’s the Old Army Game (1926) and Running Wild (1927) on both formats.

And file this in The Rumor Mill, but a number of our retail sources have checked in with word that the tentative street date for Disney’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi on Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD is 3/27. That sounds about right, but the date could still shift a little bit until it’s officially announced. We do know that the Blu-rays will include about 20 minutes of deleted scenes and, one would imagine, a trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story as well.

All right, we hope you all have a great weekend. See you back here on Monday as we gear up for CES.

Stay tuned…
