Today’s update is going to be a quick one, but we do have a couple of interesting things to report.

First, CBS and Paramount’s Star Trek: Discovery – Season Three is now available for pre-order on Amazon.com (click here for the link). We don’t have a street date yet, but you can see the cover artwork at left and also below.

Speaking of Paramount, they’ve added a couple more catalog Blu-ray titles to their June slate, including Flight of the Intruder and The General’s Daughter on 6/29. In & Out, The Stepford Wives (2004), and a Ladies Night In 3-Movie Collection (of What Men Want, Nobody’s Fool, and Like a Boss) are also coming on 6/1. And if we’re not mistaken, Flight of the Intruder and The General’s Daughter are new to Blu-ray (as is The Saint, which streets on 5/25).

The BBC series The Watch: Season One is due on Blu-ray and DVD on 6/29. [Read on here...]

For you Walking Dead fans, AMC’s The Walking Dead: World Beyond – Season One is coming to Blu-ray on 6/15.

On the anime front, FUNimation is releasing Last Exile: Fam, the Silver Wing – Season Two on Blu-ray on 6/1. (We wish they’d release the original Last Exile series on Blu-ray too.)

And finally today, our friends over at the excellent Blu-ray-Disc.de website in Germany have learned that Sony plans to finally start releasing individual film SKUs from their Columbia Classics Collection: Volume 1 box set on 4K Ultra HD this summer, starting with Gandhi, Jerry Maquire, and Mr. Smith Goes to Washington in July (the German street date is expected to be 7/8). We would imagine they’ll appear here in the States around then as well.

Here’s a look at the cover artwork for some of the titles we mentioned above, with Amazon pre-order links...

Walking Dead: World Beyond - Season One (Blu-ray Disc) The Umbrella Academy: Season One (Blu-ray Disc) Star Trek: Discovery - Season Three (Blu-ray Disc)

Flight of the Intruder (Blu-ray Disc) The Saint (Blu-ray Disc) The General's Daughter (Blu-ray Disc)

That’s all for now. Stay tuned...
