All right, today’s update is a quickie, but it’s a good one.

All of those re-issued Star Wars Blu-rays from Disney we mentioned yesterday are now up for pre-order on Amazon with a street date of 9/22 (that’s not a Tuesday, so it could be just a “week of” placeholder date until the announcement is made).

The SRP is $34.99, but Amazon’s usual sale price should kick in soon. All of them are up now except Episode IV: A New Hope, which should go live soon. In any case, you can see the cover art – now with pre-order links – below.

In 4K catalog news today, Ridley Scott’s American Gangster is now official for release on 4K Ultra HD by Universal on 10/15. You can see the cover artwork and pre-order it below. It will have DTS:X audio and HDR10 high dynamic range. [Read on here...]

And on 9/10, look for Martin Scorsese’s Casino in 4K from Universal. The cover artwork and pre-order link is below.

Also coming from Universal on 10/15 is Scarface: Gold Edition in 4K, though we don’t yet have a pre-order link for that one.

Finally, Lionsgate’s forthcoming 4K Ultra HD releases of Lock Up and Rambo (2008) are now available for pre-order on Amazon (due on 9/10 and 9/3, respectively) and we have the cover artwork and links below.

We’ve updated the 4K Ultra HD Release List here at The Bits accordingly.

Here’s the artwork for everything mentioned above, now with Amazon links as available...

Star Wars: The Phantom Menace (2019 - Blu-ray reissue) Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2019 - Blu-ray reissue) Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith (2019 - Blu-ray reissue)

And that’s a wrap for the moment, though we may drop back in this weekend with more.

Have a great one and stay tuned!
