Just one more week until January's wallet-buster, with February just around the corner! Have you stocked up on Arrow Video titles with the B&N sale in full swing?
Welcome to Volume 4 Episode 34 of our weekly release guide. A look at the highlights of what's coming to disc the week of January 21st - January 27th, as well as a look at announcements from last week.
This week is like a sandwich, imports on both ends and domestic releases in the middle.
For UK Import Monday, first from Arrow Video, their fat-pack for the 1976 horror Carrie.
Next, Second Sight offers up their limited edition release of High Tension. If you want to save a few bucks and opt for the movie-only (no-swag) release, that's an option too. Don't assume these Second SIght titles will get a US release, some of them have thus far not gotten such a release. (Babadook, It Follows, and more)
Domestic Tuesday's new release this week is DC Animated Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths - Part One, which comes in a SteelBook package.
And Kino Lorber brings us 1990's comedy Kindergarten Cop with Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Next week offers a lot more, with three Conan skus, Trainspotting, Silent Night, a couple of Severin titles, Vinegar Syndrome, and more.
Blu-ray counterparts of the above 4K releases? Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths - Part One from Warner Bros and (see below) Super Mario Bros from Umbrella Entertainment.
The rest of the category is a bit slow this week, and just like the 4K section, next week is going to be huge.
Anime highlights include By the Grace of the Gods - Season 2, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Set 8 - Stone Ocean Part 1, RahXephon Complete Collection,
From Criterion this week, Chantal Akerman Masterpieces, 1968–1978.
TV on disc this week from Paramount, Special Ops: Lioness: Season One.
Import Friday consists of Umbrella Entertainment titles:
Warner Bros. has announced that The Color Purple (2023) 4K and blu-ray editions will arrive March 12th.
Criterion Collection's April slate has been announced. Do check out Tom's News Story for more info.
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will be release to 4K and blu-ray on March 12th as well.
