All right, we’re closing out the week here at The Bits with a bit of fun…

First up, Tim has just posted a new Pick-Ups review of MGM’s 2009 Blu-ray release of The Silence of the Lambs. You can read that here.

Of course, we have a little more announcement news today too...

Shout! Factory has revealed the extras you’ll get on their Streets of Fire: Collector’s Edition on 5/16, the latest entry in their Shout Selects line of titles. Look for a new 2K scan of the interpositive on Disc One, and then on Disc Two you’ll get the all-new The Making of Streets of Fire documentary, along with Rumble on the Lot: Walter Hill’s Streets of Fire Revisited, 4 vintage featurettes (Rock and Roll Fable, Exaggerated Realism, Choreographing the Crowd, Creating the Costumes, and From the Ground Up), music videos, on-air promos, a still gallery, and the theatrical trailer. You can see the cover artwork below. [Read on here…]

Also, Universal has set Dragonheart: Battle for the Heartfire for release on Blu-ray and DVD on 6/13.

And Arrow Video’s The Bird With The Crystal Plumage: 2-Disc Limited Edition is now available for pre-order on Amazon.com with a street date of 6/20.

In other news from around the Internet today, there has obviously just been something of disturbance in the Force. Some of you may have seen this already, but Lucasfilm posted a pretty nice video tribute to the late Carrie Fisher at Star Wars Celebration yesterday. You can view that here...

Of course, we’d be remiss if we didn’t alert the three of you who may have missed it this morning to the fact that they’ve also just posted the first official teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. (That’s also the official teaser poster image you can see above left here as the thumbnail on the site today.) You can view the trailer here...

And if you wish, the full Rian Johnson director’s panel for The Last Jedi from Star Wars Celebration this morning can be viewed here as well (the full live stream is running all day from the convention here)…

With that, we’ll leave you today with a little bit more new Blu-ray cover artwork. Click on the covers to pre-order the titles on Amazon.com, if available...

Streets of Fire: Collector's Edition (Blu-ray Disc) The Bird with the Crystal Plumage (Blu-ray Disc) Future Shock: The Story of 2000AD (Blu-ray Disc)

Have a great weekend!
