As always, we’ve got more new disc reviews for you today…

Tim has taken a look at Jack Cardiff’s The Long Ships (1964), a Viking adventure film on Blu-ray from Imprint Films in Australia.

And Dennis has turned in his thoughts on Mark O’Brien’s The Righteous (2021) on Blu-ray from our friends at Arrow Video.

In announcement news today, Paramount has made their Paramount Presents Blu-ray of Back to the Beach (1987) official for release on Blu-ray on 8/9. Newly-remastered from a new 4K scan of the film, the disc will include a new Filmmaker Focus featurette with director Lyndall Hobbs that includes previously-unseen home movies from the set.

We’ve got more announcement news for you today, starting with the big one...

Paramount has just set 1883: A Yellowstone Origin Story for Blu-ray and DVD release on 8/30. The Paramount+ series stars Sam Elliott, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, and Isabel May. The release will include all 10 episodes along with two hours of featurettes (among them A Land of Peril & Wonder: The Journey of 1883, From Cast to Cowboys: Creating the Pioneer Spirit, 1883: The Road West, Inside 1883, and Behind the Story for each episode). You can see the cover artwork at left and also below.

Paramount has also set Adrian Lyne’s Fatal Attraction (1987) for release on 4K Ultra HD on 9/13. The film stars Glenn Close and Michael Douglas. We’re awaiting official AV details and extras from the studio.

Coming on 9/13 from Paramount as well is a 4K Steelbook release of The Addams Family.

And Paramount and Comedy Central have set South Park: The Complete Twenty-Fourth Season for Blu-ray release on 8/16. [Read on here...]

Now it’s time to run down some of the major announcement news that’s broken over the past few days, and we have some real gems to report for you. Let’s start with 4K Ultra HD catalog news...

First up, our friends at Shout! and Scream Factory have just unveiled a great batch of new 4K Ultra HD titles for August release, including John Milius’ Red Dawn (1984) as a Shout Select 4K UHD release (a Collector’s Edition box with exclusive pins and a poster will also be available directly from the Shout! website) and new 4K UHD Collector’s Editions of Child’s Play, Child’s Play 2, and Child’s Play 3 on 8/16, followed by Mamoru Hosoda’s BELLE on 4K Ultra HD on 8/30. You can see the cover artwork for these at left and below the break. Note that the release of Scream’s 4Ks of Cat People and The Funhouse have also been pushed back to 8/2 and 8/9 respectively (from 7/19 and 7/26).

Kino Lorber Studio Classics has now teased new 4K UHD releases of George P. Cosmatos’ Leviathan (1989) and Ben Stiller’s Tropic Thunder (2008). Both are listed as “coming soon.” That last one is particularly interesting, as it’s part of a new content distribution deal the company has signed with Paramount Home Entertainment. The deal apparently includes some 65 titles in all on Blu-ray (8 of which are being released on disc for the first time), including 16 on 4K Ultra HD. Among these are old Republic titles, though reportedly none released previously by Olive Films. Given KLSC’s recent focus on Sergio Leone westerns, we think it’s a good bet that Leone’s Once Upon a Time in the West (1968) will be among the 4K titles. [Read on here...]
