Wow, another month coming to an end. For record releases, that means we’re entering dangerous territory (for our wallets) as September approaches. We still have one Tuesday left in the month, but it’s never too early to prepare.
Welcome to Episode 14 of Volume 3 of our weekly post guide. A look at highlights of what’s coming to disc this week, as well as a look at announcements from the past week.
4K Ultra HD Blu-ray outputs–
There’s nothing new this week in this category, but we do have some decent catalog options.
Import Monday starts with dog soldiers (Collector’s Edition) from Second Sight. Another import with lots of cool swag, count me in!
National release Tuesday catalog titles will follow. First from Scream Factory, dog soldiers gets their Collector’s Edition treatment, which in this case is a bunch of on-disc extras, some of which are brand new.
war drama paths of glory, directed by Stanley Kubrick and starring Kirk Douglas arrives on 4K disc via Kino Lorber. David Krauss says this is a “Must Own” version, who am I to dispute that assessment?
LionsGate double-dips one dirty dance SteelBook with, in my opinion, a much better cover than the previous Best Buy exclusive version.
Next week, another double dip SteelBook but with a different cover, award-winning anime, bloodsport, meow and more.
There are no Blu-ray equivalents to the above 4K releases this week.
Anime highlights include Is it wrong to try to pick up girls in a dungeon? ! Season 3 [Premium Box Set], Kingdom – Season 3 Part 1 and My Hero Academia World Heroes Mission which is available as regular editiona Walmart Exclusive Gift Box and as Best Buy Exclusive Steelbook.
Formerly listed as Scorpion Releasing titles, Ronin Flix has action for you. Choose from JCVD, Charles Bronson and/or Chuck Norris with death sentence, death wish 3, The Delta Force and Lone Wolf McQuade.
There are several Universal small batch (MOD) classic movie releases listed for this week that I’d like to mention, but Amazon still doesn’t have any covers, so I’m wondering if they’ll be moved to the already bloated month of September or around next week. Some of these titles were part of the Kino Film Noir box sets.
Vintage Tarzan from The Film Detective, The Tarzan Vault Collection streets this week.
Honorable mention (?): OK, that’s just too funny to pass up. I don’t know what to think about it, but Amityville in space / Amityville in the hood (Dual Feature) is coming to Blu-ray. Don’t go with high expectations.
Notable announcements from the past week:
first blood 4K (Zavvi Exclusive) had three editions to choose from this week, but they’ve been pushed back a month to September 26, making September even harder to swallow.
dragons forever 4K has also been pushed back to September 13. Do we need to open up home equity or a second mortgage to get all the titles we want in September?
Collection of criteria November titles to understand daisies, love mood 4K, The power of the dog 4K and Blu-Ray, The Infernal Affairs Trilogy and Malcolm X 4K and Blu-ray editions.
by Steven Soderbergh Linden will receive a 4K SteelBook version on October 11 via LionsGate and Best Buy.
Kino Lorber will be released Red Dragon to 4K later this year. With Thesilenceofthelambs and Hannibal already having Kino 4K versions, this is good news for those who are waiting for this version.
