All right, we’ve got more reviews for you to enjoy today, including...

My take on James Wan’s Aquaman in 4K Ultra HD from Warner.

Dennis’ review of Dan Bush’s The Vault on Blu-ray from FilmRise.

And Chase’s look at Robert Zemeckis’ I Wanna Hold Your Hand on Blu-ray from Criterion.

More reviews are in the works for tomorrow and Friday, so be sure to check back for them.

Meanwhile, we have some new title news and announcements to report today as well...

We’ve now confirmed the 4/23 release of Captain America: Civil War and Captain America: The Winter Soldier on 4K Ultra HD from Disney. [Read on here...]

And Best Buy is now officially taking pre-orders on the title. Not only that, both titles will be available in Steelbook format exclusively at Best Buy as well. Amazon, as usual, is behind the curve. But here’s a look at the final cover artwork...

Captain America: Civil War (4K Ultra HD) Captain America: The Winter Soldier (4K Ultra HD) 13 Hours (4K Ultra HD)

While we’re talking 4K, we’ve just added Disney’s live action Dumbo (TBA August) and DC and Warner’s Shazam! (TBA August) to our 4K Ultra HD Release List. And, as you can see, Paramount is finally releasing 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi on 4K Ultra HD on 6/11.

Also, it looks like Best Buy is going to have a Matrix Trilogy 4K Ultra HD Steelbook release on 6/4.

Now then, on the Blu-ray front, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has set Isn’t It Romantic for release on Blu-ray and DVD on 5/21, with Digital due on 4/30. Extras will include a featurette and deleted scenes.

Each are limited editions of 3K units each and they’ll be available on Twilight Time Movies and Screen Archives.

If you’re a spaceflight buff (as I am), here’s something very exciting: PBS has already set their American Experience: Chasing the Moon documentary for release on Blu-ray and DVD on 7/9. You can pre-order it by clicking on the cover artwork below.
