All right, we’ve got a lot of content for you this evening here at The Bits.

First up, our own Michael Coate has just completed an exhaustive roundtable interview of Treksperts – some of whom are old friends of ours here – in honor of the 35th anniversary of Robert Wise’s Star Trek: The Motion Picture and he presents that now in his History, Legacy & Showmanship column for all of you to enjoy. So click the link for that and we hope you find it a great read!  [Read on here…]

Also today, I’ve completed three more Blu-ray reviews for you, including James Marsh’s Oscar-nominated The Theory of Everything from Universal, Errol Morris’ A Brief History of Time documentary from Criterion (a good match for The Theory of Everything for obvious reasons), and also Steven Spielberg’s long-awaited Munich, another Universal title now available exclusively at Best Buy. (It releases widely on Blu-ray on 5/5). Enjoy!

In announcement news today, Warner has FINALLY made The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies official on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD on 3/24 (SRP $44.95 for the Blu-rays and $28.98 for the DVD). We covered all the details and posted the artwork yesterday, but one additional note is that the discs will include a behind-the-scenes video on the making of The Last Goodbye music video. We expect the Extended Edition of the film to be released on Blu-ray and DVD in November.

In other release news today, Anchor Bay and Starz have set Tim Burton’s Big Eyes for Blu-ray and DVD release on 4/14, starring Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz. The disc will include The Making of Big Eyes featurette and Q&A Highlights.
