Amazon also has the multi-film Steven Spielberg: Director’s Collection for just $69 on Blu-ray. Act fast to take advantage.
And in other news this afternoon, we have sad news to report: The acclaimed Japanese artist and illustrator Noriyoshi Ohrai has died. If his name doesn’t ring a bell, his work surely will. Here’s one of his greatest hits...
You can take a look at more of his work today in this tribute piece over on Kotaku. If there was ever a Japanese OMNI Magazine, Ohrai would surely have painted more of its covers than anyone. He’ll be missed.
We’ll leave you with a look at more new Blu-ray Disc cover artwork, complete with Amazon.com pre-order links if available...
