Afternoon, folks. We’re going to get you caught up on some recent release news today and we also have a preview of some interesting 4K Ultra HD titles our industry and retail sources suggest are coming before the end of the year.

But first, I want to apologize for the lack of posts late last week. On Tuesday morning, I came down with the flu. It pretty much put me out of action from Wednesday night through Friday. Seriously, I had the whole fever and body aches routine going for a good 36 hours – no fun. Moral of the story is: Get your flu shots, kids. There’s a bad one going around. In any case, thanks for your patience while I get back up to speed.

In announcement news today, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has set Daniel Espinosa’s recent sci-fi thriller Life for release on 6/20 on Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD. The Digital release is expected on 6/2. The extras on all versions will include deleted scenes, unseen Astronaut Diaries, and 3 featurettes (Claustrophobic Terror: Creating a Thriller in Space, Life: In Zero G, and Creating Life: The Art and Reality of Calvin). No word yet on the 4K SKU’s audio or HDR. [Read on here…]

We’re kicking off the day here at The Bits with a pair of new Blu-ray reviews from yours truly.

First up is a look at FUNimation’s brand new Cowboy Bebop: The Complete Series release – the standard edition on Blu-ray. If you’re a fan of the series, picking this one up is a no-brainer. Not only is it one of the best anime of all time, FUNimation’s new release features best-available A/V quality, nearly all the extras from the previous DVD editions, and some new bonus content too.

The second review is something pretty cool: A few of you may recall that, in my review of Warner’s Batman: The Complete Series – Limited Edition, I mentioned a great documentary on actor Adam West that’s as good or better than anything included in Warner’s BD box set. I’m happy to say that this documentary – James E. Tooley’s Starring Adam West – is finally available for purchase on its own on both Blu-ray and DVD (here at this website) and I’ve had the chance to review it here. If you’re a fan of classic TV Batman, it’s well worth a look.  [Read on here…]
