Also today, Warner Bros Home Entertainment has now officially announced the 4K Ultra HD release of The Maltese Falcon (1941) and Cool Hand Luke (1967) on 4/4, and it looks like they’ve also now pushed up the street date for their 4K UHD release of Rebel Without a Cause (1955) to 4/4 as well. (Retailers had previously listed the title for release on 4/18). The SRP for each is $24.99. These discs will each include HDR10 high dynamic range, and all of the previous special features on an accompanying Blu-ray Disc. You can see the cover art once again below.
Speaking of Warner Bros, retail sources are telling us to expect the next DC Animated Movie release, All-Star Superman, to arrive on Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD on 4/18. You can see that cover art below as well.
And Warner and Adult Swim are bringing Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal: The Complete Second Season to Blu-ray and DVD on 4/25. We’ve included that art below too.
Meanwhile, Sony Pictures Classics will release Florian Zeller’s The Son (2022) on Blu-ray and DVD on 3/28.
Paramount has just revealed a new 45th Anniversary “Stash Box” Blu-ray version of Cheech and Chong’s Up in Smoke for release on 4/18. This is very similar to the 40th Anniversary Stash Box release, so I presume it sold pretty well before. SRP is $33.99.
Also, Kino Lorber Studio Classics’ 4K Ultra HD release of Sidney Lumet’s Serpico (1973) is now up for pre-order on Amazon. (Again, see below.)
And it appears that Universal and Blumhouse will release Gerard Johnstone’s M3GAN (2022) on Blu-ray, DVD, and (possibly) 4K Ultra HD release on 7/1, though keep in mind that’s not yet official.
Before we go today, we’d be remiss if we didn’t take a moment to acknowledge the passing of the famed Three Musketeers, Fantastic Voyage, and One Million Years BC actress Raquel Welch, who died on Wednesday at the age of 82. You can read more here via Variety.
And we should acknowledge the recent passing of actress Melinda Dillon as well, who made Steven Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Bob Clark’s A Christmas Story all the better for her presence. She was 83, and you can also read more about her life and career here at Variety.
Finally today, once you’ve seen the first episode of Star Trek: Picard – Season Three, you might want to give the latest installment of the Inglorious Treksperts podcast a listen. Our friends Mark A. Altman, Daren Dochterman, and Ashley E. Miller sit down to talk about the new season with actor/director Jonathan Frakes, showrunner Terry Matalas, and Trek fan (and 20th Century Studios president) Steve Asbell. It’s a great listen.
Here’s that cover art we promised you (click on each image to visit the Amazon.com pre-order link if available)...
That’s all for now! Stay tuned...
