At Wednesday’s espnW Summit, Marvel Studios hosted a “Captain Marvel” panel and revealed an all-new trailer and in-home release dates for its first female-led franchise film, centered on Carol Danvers a.k.a. Captain Marvel. The spectacular, 1990s-era Super Hero adventure, which electrified and inspired audiences worldwide and surpassed $1 billion in ticket sales, is available on Digital in HD and 4K Ultra HD™ May 28, and lands on Blu-ray™ and Blu-ray 4K Ultra HD™ June 11.
The highly anticipated and, subsequently, very successful Incredibles sequel – Incredibles 2 – is coming to home video with expected mount of Disney•Pixar bonus material including a mini-movie starring Edna Mode.
Disney•Pixar’s Incredibles 2 will be available on Digital on October 23rd with Blu-ray 4K Ultra HD,™ Blu-ray,™ DVD and On-Demand following on Nov. 6.
Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok,” the God of Thunder’s third installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, electrified both audiences and critics alike reaching over $845M at the global box office. Now the colorful cosmic adventure, loaded with action, humor, drama and spectacle, bursts into homes Digitally in HD and 4K Ultra HD™, and Movies Anywhere, on Feb. 20 and on 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™, DVD and On-Demand on March. 6. I liked the movie well enough, but I didn’t go gaga over it like everyone else did. I think this will look amazing on 4K UHD. Check out my Movie review. Hit the jump to see a sneak peak.
At Disney’s D23 Expo, Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer announced that Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is also coming to glorious 4K UHD Blu-ray on October 3rd. In addition to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, this marks Disney’s 2nd 4k UHD Release, hopefully this is a sign that Disney is now fully aboard the 4K Bandwagon. My question and hope remains that this means Disney’s Movies Anywhere will also now stream in 4K UHD.
The day has finally come when Marvel and Disney finally jump on the 4K UHD Blu-ray bandwagon! Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 will be Disney’s first official 4k UHD Blu-ray release. Sure you can purchase the Iron-Man Trilogy from some German distributor but some how I doubt that’s an official release, so I’m not going to count that. Guardians, coming out August 2nd, will be Marvel’s first official title. This is where I subtlety remind the Disney person that reads this article, that I own a really nice LG OLED 4K TV and a nice Samsung UHD player. Hint.
Disney’s juggernaut Beauty and The Beast is coming home to Blu-ray next week – June 6th. Of course there are a million exclusive editions! Steelbook version at Best Buy that’s $29 (are you kidding me?), a Target exclusive that includes a 32 page book and blah, blah. Come on Disney, stop screwing people. If I can’t get a full proper packaged version from ANY store, without feeling like I’m missing out on something, then screw them, I’ll just get the digital version and call it a day. I’m not jumping through hoops for this. I’m sure I probably won’t get my customary free copy after they read this. But honestly, Disney, you know I love you, but stop pulling this stupid crap.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is coming to home video on Digital HD, Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack and DVD.
The seventh-highest grossing film of all time, Rogue One’s home video release includes ten featurettes covering all aspects of the film – from the nuts and bolts of making the film to character details and Easter eggs.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will arrive on Digital HD on March 24th; the Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack and DVd releases will be in stores on April 4th.
I’m doing something a little different. Either you are moving forward or stuck in a rut. So I’m trying my hand at doing more YouTube videos and reviews. Here’s a video review of Disney’s Pinocchio Signature Edition Blu-ray. Bare with me while I get my YouTube Fu correct. I’m getting new equipment and beefing up my editing chops. But I’m also trying not to overthink this and make it harder on myself than it needs to be. Let me know what you all think.
Pinocchio is out on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere This Week. To celebrate check out these new bonus clips from the early days of Disney Animation that show Walt Disney’s process while creating Pinocchio! You can download it today. Have I said lately how much I adore Disney Movies Anywhere? Buy it once and it shows up on almost all Digital services including Ultraviolet, iTunes, Microsoft, PSN Network, Amazon and Google! The really cool thing is the extras are always included as well. I wish ALL studios would do this. Sick of having to choose between services. Disney gets mad props for going a step beyond in the way they treat their fans. Yes, I’m saying all of this because I expect my free review copy :). But come on Disney, 4K Man, 4K! Check out the clips. Pinocchio is out on Blu-ray™ and DVD on Jan. 31.
Disney’s timeless tale Pinocchio, considered one of the greatest animated films ever made with two Academy Awards, joins the Walt Disney Signature Collection. Now it will delight a whole new generation of dreamers with its masterful animation, unforgettable characters and award-winning music. The movie which inspired the world to wish upon a star, arrives for the first time on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere on Jan. 10, and on Blu-ray™ and DVD on Jan. 31 with hours of new and classic bonus features. When is Disney jumping on the 4K UHD bandwagon? Nevermind, I’d probably be salty to discover none of my Disney Movies Anywhere content will “automatically upgrade” to UHD quality anyway.
