Blu-ray & 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Release Guide - August 1 - August 7, 2021

First week of August upon us, I don't enjoy the thought that Autumn will be here before we know it and then that means Winter will sneak itself in at warp speed or something.

Welcome to Volume 2 Episode 11 of our weekly release guide. Our weekly look at the highlights of this week's blu-ray and 4K disc releases, as well as a look at announcements from last week.

 

4K Ultra HD Blu-ray/Digital Releases-

For 4K disc releases, we have a few to pick from.

First from Disney/Pixar, Luca, which I keep confusing with Loki on Disney Plus. This one reviewed quite well theatrically, read Bryan's thoughts. In general for me, if it's Disney/Pixar, I find it hard NOT to like it. Luca comes as a standard edition, a Best Buy Exclusive SteelBook and as a Target Exclusive edition.

 

Arrow Video releases a less extravagant version of Django. What's different? This one does not include the bonus blu-ray disc for Texas, Adios and lacks the swag,  but still appears to have the same bonus features.

Last but not least, The Transformers: The Movie 35th Anniversary, as a SteelBook release. If you opt for a standard release, that one is due September 28th, along with a 35th Anniversary blu-ray.

 

 

HD Blu-ray/Digital releases-

This week is one of the slowest weeks in a long time for Blu-ray. Maybe that's good with all the releases we've had to consider the past few weeks.

Luca also gets a blu-ray/dvd combo pack as well.

Clint Eastwood movie buffs, look for Kino Lorber's release of Coogan's Bluff. Probably not his top ten of movies, but come on, it's Clint Eastwood! Kino Lorber has a few noteables this week as well, Claudette Colbert/Ray Milland's Arise, My Love, Cecil B. DeMille's Four Frightened People, Claudette Colbert/Fred MacMurray's No Time for Love, Cecil B. DeMille's Union Pacific starring Barbara Stanwyck and The Valdez Horses starring Charles Bronson.

Arrow video also graces us this week with a standard edition blu-ray for Django, in case you are not doing 4K. That's not all from Arrow this week, also look for The Daimajin Trilogy as a Limited Edition and for The Sergio Martino Collection. These are both foreign horror collections with English dubs and lots of bonus features.

 

If you're wondering what Billy Crystal is up to these days, Sony Pictures shows you with Here Today, a comedy directed by and starring himself.

Angelina Jolie's latest, Those Who Wish Me Dead comes to Blu-ray this week.

 

The anime category is also proportionately slow, highlights this week are just El-Hazard: The Magnificent World and Fire Force: Season 2 Part 1.

Mill Creek brings us I Dream of Jeannie: The Complete Series after a delay or two. Streaming is convenient for watching TV in bed, but if it was up to me, I would have a video wall of just TV shows on Blu-ray to truly enjoy these shows. Also from Mill Creek, The Randolph Scott Western Collection.

 

Honorable mention of the week goes to ClassicFlix's The Little Rascals: Volume Two. It is good to see these releases under way to preserve this show for a new generation.

Notable announcements from last week:

Paramount has announced the release of the Audrey Hepburn: 7-Movie Collection on October 5th. As far as releases go, it only adds Paris When It Sizzles to the blu-ray format but it is a single SKU package for 7 of her movies.

Sony has announced Underworld Limited Edition 5-Movie Collection coming to 4K disc October 5th. Thank you Sony for not releasing just the first movie in the franchise.

Kino Lorber will be doing To Live and Die in L.A. on 4K disc. They've also indicated Sergio Leone’s A Fistful of Dollars (1964) and For a Few Dollars More (1965) will be getting 4K discs sometime next year.

Marvel's Black Widow will be released on 4K disc and blu-ray on September 14th.

Arrow Video would like you to open up your wallets. For October releases, expect to see Deep Red - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Deep Red (Arte Original Version) - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Giallo Essentials, He Came from the Swamp: The William Grefé Collection (Standard Edition) and Yokai Monsters Collection. If you would like to import, they also have Dementer / Jug Face (Double Feature) from the UK. October will be more expensive for me!

The End Of Summer Is Nigh! - August 2021 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Release Guide

Summer is usually a fun mixture of soaking in new films at the theater while eagerly anticipating a stacked home video release slate for the fall. The ongoing Covid pandemic has kinda upended that tradition. Theaters are back open, but the release window for films is even shorter so when we used to get a little time to catch our breath in August, the studios and boutique labels are throwing some heavy hitters at us. From your favorite shape-shifting vehicles to an inept bodyguard to an epic science fiction box office bomb - there's some great stuff out there to gather up for your ever-growing collection. 

August 2021 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Release Guide


August 3rd 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Releases 

The classic animated 80s Transformers movie and Pixar's lasted effort Luca are the main draws this week. If you missed out on the deluxe edition of Arrow Video's Django disc a standard release is on the way. 

The Transformers: The Movie 4K UHD SteelBook

August 17th 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Releases 

We skip a week without any new 4K releases (at least domestically) before we get a Labyrinth reissue from Sony now with Dolby Vision HDR and a Magical Movie Mode edition of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's (or Philosopher's) Stone along with The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard 

Labyrinth 35th Anniversary 4K UHD Blu-ray

August 24th 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Releases 

Things really start to pick up this week heading into an extremely packed September slate. We're getting standard studio material like Peter Rabbit 2 but also some classic genre material like Cat O' Nine Tales and Two Evil Eyes - also The Conjuring 3.

The Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray

August 31st 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Releases 

August closes out with another busy week of 4K releases including a new hit musical, multiple releases of a film that is perhaps David Lynch's most divisive and controversial film, and Mortal Kombat gets animated. 

In The Heights 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray 

 

Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray 

 

Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray SteelBook

Dune Limited Edition SteelBook 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray 

 

Dune Limited Deluxe Edition SteelBook 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray 

 

Notable Imports We Hope To Review

Imports are a tad tricky. Subject to shipping limitations, we don't often get to jump on these when they come out. While the U.K. and France aren't getting anything particularly unique or special in the 4K department, Germany is getting a trio of great titles from Capelight Pictures. 

Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Mediabook 

 

Lady Vengeance 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Mediabook 

 

Lord of War 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray SteelBook 

 

That's about it for August. Now more could be announced in the coming days and one or a few of these could be delayed, that sadly does happen. If anything changes with these titles we'll update their respective listings and amend this guide. While this is a busy month - September is going to be grueling. 

Hope this is helpful! Thanks again for all of your pre-orders, it really helps make a difference ensuring we can keep this goofy website going for as long as possible. 


Smallville: The Complete Series Flying onto Blu-ray October 19th

Up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's the 42-Disc Complete Series of Smallville! 

After the final five seasons languished as solo releases for years, Smallville is finally getting a complete series release on October 19th, 2021. This massive 10-season 42-disc set with Digital copy brings Tom Welling's entire journey as Clark Kent to Blu-ray. SRP for this sucker will be priced at $179.99 - but once this goes up for pre-order I'd expect those Amazon and online retailer sale prices to drop significantly. For this price though you're getting over 9,000 minutes of content with an additional 28 Hours of archival bonus materials that were originally part of the DVD sets. 

Smallville The Complete Series: 20th Anniversary

As of right now, single-season releases of Seasons One through Five haven't been announced. I know quite a few folks who bought the Seasons Six through Eight on Blu-ray expecting the first few to follow but it's been ten years since the final season hit Blu-ray and that didn't happen. We've even had pre-built listings in our archive for the day those would be announced but that never happened. Understandably, buying a complete series package instead of just the seasons you need may be a bit of a sting. If this is going to be the only way to get the entire series in 1080p on disc, it's nice to get everything in a tight convenient package. Hopefully, the packaging is decent and not like the flimsy Mission: Impossible set. 

As of this writing, this isn't up for pre-order yet, but as soon as it is we'll update the listing and let everyone know.

Marvel's Black Widow coming to Blu-ray & 4K UHD Blu-ray

Scarlett Johansson's Final Tour as Black Widow Arrives on Disc September 14th

Marvel's big return to theaters after a prolonged delay due to the ongoing global pandemic Black Widow hits 1080p Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray on September 14th with an early Digital streaming release on August 10th. Ever since her first appearance in Iron Man 2, Johansson has embodied Natashia Romanoff as a supporting character or part of a team ensemble. Now in her own solo adventure, she must face the secrets of her dark past alongside the family she left behind long ago. 

The 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray gets a full Dolby Atmos track with the standard Blu-ray arriving with a DTS-HD MA 7.1 mix. The press release didn't mention anything about which HDR grade the 4K disc will receive but if past is prologue then it'll probably be HDR10 with the Dolby Vision HDR saved for the streaming presentation. Bonus features will include bloopers, deleted scenes, and a smattering of making-of featurettes. 

As of this writing, neither the Blu-ray or the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray are up for pre-order but we expect online retailers to handle that shortly. So far no retailer exclusives have been formally announced, but we expect Zavvi and Best Buy to have something on deck. No word if Target will do one of their Book-style sets or not. As we get those details we'll update this post with listings and pricing info. 

Take a look at the full press release:


LOS ANGELES, CA (July 26, 2021) – Marvel Studios’ Black Widow arrives early on all major digital platforms on August 10 and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD on September 14. Black Widow fans can enjoy the film in stunning Ultra HD quality and immersive Dolby Atmos audio along with never-before-seen bonus footage, including nine deleted scenes, bloopers and featurettes.

Help 3-D Film Archive Restore The Greatest 3-D Film Ever Made!

The Best 3-D Film Ever Made Needs Your Help!

Ever since Bwana Devil hit in 1952, Hollywood has had an intermittent love affair with Three-Dimensional filmmaking. House of WaxHondoJaws 3-D - several films over the decades have fought to become the champion 3-D Film of all time. But without any irony or sarcasm, there really is only one champion - Phil Tucker's Robot Monster. After being absent from home video, the great team at 3-D Film Archive has launched a Kickster to initiate a full 4K restoration of this film to produce new 3-D Blu-ray and DVD and you can pre-order your copy now! 

Check Out The Kickster Here

A film shot on a small budget in the depths of Bronson Canyon Robot Monster is a science fiction delight telling the tall tale of the last family on earth struggling to survive after the intergalactic menace Ro-Man has decimated the world's population for the all-powerful GreatGuidance. Famous for its gorilla suit and fishbowl creature and the automatic billion bubble machine - Robot Monster features pretty damned impressive three-dimensional photography as well as a score by some random guy named Elmer Bernstein who really never amounted to much as a composer. Sadly, it's been absent on home video in anything resembling a quality presentation, let alone in proper 3-D. - I've held onto this VHS tape in the hopes that one day a good and proper 3-D Blu-ray would one day appear! 

Now the experts at 3-D Film Archive are hard at work restoring this film to its full and proper glory. The Blu-ray will offer full 3D Blu-ray as well as the film in Anaglyph 3D (red/blue) for those folks without a 3-D television or projector! But that's not all, they're assembling a terrific assortment of bonus features including vintage 3-D shorts, as well as an interview and audio commentary with actor Greg Moffett who played little ruffian Johnny in the film! 

Robot Monster 3-D Kickstarter Add-Ons

But this being a Kickstarter campaign, 3-D Film Archive has pulled out the stops for extra add-ons!

$30 + $5 for shipping guarantees you a Blu-ray copy (3D Blu-ray Including Polarized and Anaglyph (red/blue) 3D)

$15 more nets you a new lenticular cover from artist Stewart McKissick (In Development)

$50 more gets you a Retro3D Viewer similar to the one they offered for 3-D Rarities II and September Storm 3-D, these are a lot of fun, and work with old View-Master reels if you have any of those lying around from your childhood.   

Perhaps most exciting - 3-D Film Archive is offering up a limited variety of 35-mm film cells sourced from original theatrical prints from 1953! Again, these are very limited and as of this writing a number of the available cells have already sold out - hopefully, they'll offer up some more but these are very cool! I had to go for one myself:

 

The Kickstarter is only a day old as of this writing so you have plenty of time to jump into the mix and secure your copy. Considering how fast this one hit its base funding goal, I hope the team at 3-D Film Archive has some stretch goals or more add-ons planned! Hopefully, this also means Cat-Women of the Moon is on deck! Probably not, but one can hope. I mean, hell if we can get Flesh For Frankenstein AND Robot Monster restored to glorious 3-D on Blu-ray, anything is possible!

Blu-ray & 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Release Guide - July 25 - July 31, 2021

And just like that, the last week of July is upon us. Where do we go from here?

Welcome to Volume 2 Episode 10 of our weekly release guide. A look at the highlights for this week's titles as well as a look at announcements from last week.

4K Ultra HD Blu-ray/Digital Releases-

Weekly 4K discs releases are still going strong. This week is primarily catalog titles, and there are some good ones.

Getting the new title out of the way first, A Quiet Place Part II, comes as a standard release and a rather boring, somewhat hideous looking Best Buy SteelBook release. When the cover was to be announced and I saw the hideous one on Zavvi UK, I said to myself, that one will be the U.S. cover, mark my words. Sure enough, it was.

 

Next, Dario Argento's The Bird with the Crystal Plumage debuts as an Arrow Video 'Fat-pack' that is sure to appeal to many. I'm embarassed to say I never opened my Blu-ray 'Fat-pack' from a couple of years ago.

If you did not buy The Beastmaster direct from Vinegar Syndrome as a limited edition release, the standard edition release comes to us this week via Amazon. There are two additional titles from Vinegar Syndrome with a street date of the 27th, these two will be VS shop exclusives for a couple of months, Deadlock and Six-String Samurai.

HD Blu-ray/Digital releases-

This is the week that Paramount reissues a bunch of Miramax titles. Many of them went out of print and the prices shot up as a result. Also from Paramount, A Quiet Place Part II gets a blu-ray release and a double-feature release that includes both A Quiet Place movies.

From LionsGate, American Gods: Season Three, Every Breath You Take and Midnight in the Switchgrass.

 

Anime highlights this week include Arte - The Complete Season, Black Rock Shooter: The Complete TV Series, Chihayafuru: Season 3, City Hunter: Season 2 Set 1, Diary of Our Days at the Breakwater and MM! Complete Collection.

Warner Archive releases the animated series, The Herculoids: The Complete Original Series.

 

Under the various Shout! Factory labels, Brotherhood of the Wolf gets an extended/collector's edition release, The Dead Zone also gets a collector's edition release, and lastly, under the Shout Select Label look for State and Main.

 

From Arrow Video, Vengeance Trails: Four Classic Westerns.

Honorable mention of the week, Kino Lorber brings us Ken Jacobs Collection Volume 1, a collection of short films from an influential film maker. Volume 1 implies there will be a Volume 2 at some point.

Notable announcements from last week:

FUNimation's October batch has been revealed. Titles include Tamayomi: The Baseball Girls, Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - Season 1, Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-Chan: Complete Series  (Essentials), Dragon Ball Z - Resurrection "F", Wandering Witch: The Journey of Elaina, Haibane Renmei - The Complete Series, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya - Seasons 1 and 2 (Essentials) and Higurashi: When They Cry GOU Season 1 Part 1.

Kino Lorber will be releasing The Silence of the Lambs on 4K disc on October 19th. When we had seen Hannibal as a 4K release we all asked about this one I'm sure. They also have Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978) planned for 4K disc later this year as well. Go team Kino!

Paramount continues to add more catalog releases to its upcoming slate, as mentioned last week, Evolution was just listed on a major retailer's site, additional titles now include Beavis and Butt-Head Do America, The Time Machine, Crocodile Dundee: Triple Feature, Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, Ragtime and The Ten Commandments (1956) 4K in a SteelBook package.

Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway has a confirmed street date of August 24th as a 4K disc, blu-ray disc and a double feature blu-ray set.

Blu-ray & 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Release Guide - July 18 - July 24, 2021

Release announcements have been huge this month. We have added over 200 so far as of the 17th and there's two weeks left to the month! (An average month consists of around 225 titles added.) This is great news for physical media, let's just remember to buy the titles we have been waiting for to arrive on disc.

Welcome to Volume 2 Episode 9 of our weekly release guide.

4K Ultra HD Blu-ray/Digital Releases-

This week's 4K list could break the bank, let's take a look.

Import Monday brings us two movie choices. First, Akira Kurosawa's 'final masterpiece' Ran. There is still hope that LionsGate or similar will do a 4K disc for this, send them a friendly email to lionsgateshop@orderassistance.com. For imports though, you can opt for Zavvi or Amazon UK.

Next, an import from Arrow Video, Tony Scott's action/romance/thriller True Romance. If I had to guess why Arrow could not do a U.S. version, it is likely that the rights of this one are now under the Sony label. Sony might opt to do this one themselves. A few years ago the rights fell under Warner Bros.

 

Moving on to Domestic Tuesday releases...

From independent Blue Underground, Dead and Buried gets a 4K disc release. There are three variant covers for this one, Variant A (Poster), Variant B (Burned), and Variant C (Needle).

Next, a tie-in to the upcoming movie, the original live-action G.I. Joe movies get a 4K release. If you didn't get these at your local Walmart two week ago at a crazy low price, we have the Amazon links for ya here, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and G.I. Joe: Retaliation.

The last entry this week comes as we all pretty much figured the Saw franchise was completely done, but they keep finding ways to bring them back. Spiral: From the Book of Saw comes as a standard edition and as a SteelBook edition. LionsGate lately has been including a slipcover on their SteelBooks, similar to how Mondo X SteelBooks come.

 

HD Blu-ray/Digital releases-

Getting to the blu-ray for Spiral: From the Book of Saw first, in case you have not opted for the 4K release. Additionally from LionsGate, whom has been absent from the release calendar the past couple of week, Die in a Gunfight, Initiation, The Walking Dead: The Complete Tenth Season and The Wraith (Vestron Video Collector's Series).

Eight Legged Freaks finally sees (blue) light of day, from Shout Factory. Maybe the other silly movie Evolution will follow? (Update--It looks like Evolution should be due from Paramount around November.) Little Big League gets a Shout Select release.

 

From Warner Archive, in the film-noir category, look for I Wouldn’t Be in Your Shoes! as well as Step By Step, also a film-noir feature film. Comedy/Musical Take Me Out to the Ball Game also streets this week from Warner Archive. Probably not what Frank Sinatra and Gene Kelly are best known for, but certainly worth a look.

If you've been waiting for the physical release of Star Trek: Discovery - Season Three, wait no more, but choose between a standard release or a SteelBook release.

 

This week's Criterion Collection release is La piscine, I will not even pretend to know what this one is, but I'm sure Criterion knows what they're doing.

This week's anime category is a little limited (again) but there are a lot of titles coming. Highlights this week are Listeners - The Complete Season, RahXephon - Complete Collection (SteelBook) and Uzaki-Chan Wants to Hang Out! The Complete Season available as a standard edition and as a limited edition.

 

In the special interest/honorable mention, The Go-Go Boys: The Inside Story Of Cannon Films sounds like an interesting disc.

Aussie Label Imprint Films releases their July titles this week on Tuesday, although listed as July 21st, Amazon U.S. shows a Friday street date. Keep in mind Amazon erroneously lists them as Region B playback only. You can "report incorrect information" to Amazon a dozen times, they never fix it. Titles include:

>Hammer Horror: Four Gothic Horror Films (Imprint)
>Haunted (Imprint)
>Silver Screams Cinema (Imprint)
>The Awakening (Imprint)
>The Brotherhood of Satan (Imprint)
>The Dead Zone (Imprint)

And for Friday releases, music and arts release (of course, right?)

>Marillion: With Friends At St David's
>Offenbach: Barbe-Bleue
>Plácido Domingo at the Arena di Verona

>The Brothers: March 10, 2020

Notable announcements from last week:

Paramount's next Paramount Presents blu-ray title will be 1997's Breakdown starring Kurt Russell. This title is scheduled for release on September 21st and will be Spine number 26 among that label's releases. Under their standard label, Paramount is releasing a lot of catalog titles to blu-ray for the first time ever worldwide. Hats off to them and their media division for this! Recent additions to the list include Hardball, The Longest Yard, Blue Chips and Necessary Roughness. Combine all of this with the reissues of so many out of print Miramax titles and this studio is looking to make a huge impression with physical media.

It looks like F9: The Fast Saga will be released on September 21st as well. Official confirmation will be coming soon. This release will include a 4K standard edition, a Best Buy Exclusive 4K SteelBook, a Blu-ray and of course the entire series 1-9 in a 4K package and as a Blu-ray package.

As if September 21st wasn't already looking expensive enough, M. night Shyamalan's Unbreakable will be getting a 4K standard disc and 4K SteelBook release that day as well. Confirmation will be coming in the weeks to come, along with order links. This Disney/Fox release completes the trilogy.

Warner Bros will be releasing the third Conjuring movie, re-titled Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It on 4K and blu-ray discs on August 24th. Hope this means the first two movies will be candidates for 4K discs. Also from Warner, Shawshank Redemption will be getting two 4K discs to choose from, a standard edition and a Best Buy Exclusive SteelBook, with a street date of September 14th.

Kino Lorber will be releasing Misery (1990) on 4K disc on October 12th.

Even though the other players are churning out 4K discs left and right, Criterion still remains on the sidelines. Their October releases (Blu-ray) will be Devi, High Sierra, The Incredible Shrinking Man, Onibaba, Ratcatcher and Uncut Gems.
