• Black Hawk Down & The Guns of Navarone Limited Edition 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray SteelBooks Landing November 7

    Posted Tue Sep 12, 2023 at 09:34 AM PDT by

    Ridley Scott's Black Hawk Down and J. Lee Thompson's The Guns of Navarone are both returning to 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray in limited edition collector's SteelBooks on November 7. Both releases have also received a Dolby Vision upgrade.

    From acclaimed director Ridley Scott (The Martian) and renowned producer Jerry Bruckheimer (Pearl Harbor) comes the gripping true story about bravery, camaraderie and the complex reality of war.

    BLACK HAWK DOWN stars an exceptional cast including Josh Hartnett, Ewan McGregor and Eric Bana. In 1993, an elite group of American Rangers and Delta Force soldiers are sent to Somalia on a critical mission to capture a violent warlord whose corrupt regime has led to the starvation of hundreds of thousands of Somalis. When the mission goes quickly and terribly wrong, the men find themselves outnumbered and literally fighting for their lives.

  • Rudy Tackles 4K UHD SteelBook with Dolby Vision/Atmos & New Director's Cut on November 14

    Posted Fri Sep 1, 2023 at 07:54 AM PDT by
    Rudy Sean Astin

    David Anspaugh's modern classic sports drama starring Sean Astin will be getting the royal 4K treatment on November 14. The release will include Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos, and a brand new Director's Cut (along with the Theatrical Cut).

    All his life, people have told Rudy he's not good enough, not smart enough, not big enough. But nothing can stop his impossible dream of playing football for Notre Dame. From the time he's a young boy, Rudy (Sean Astin) is determined to join the Fighting Irish. But his blue collar family only laughs at his ambitions - they know Rudy will follow his father and brothers to the local steel mill. And, for four long years after high school, he does just that. But some dreams won't die, as Rudy proves when he goes to heroic, occasionally hilarious, lengths to win admission to Notre Dame. Once there, he becomes a walk-on player, serving as little more than a human tackling dummy against the starting players. Bloodied but unbeaten, Rudy wins the respect of legendary coach Ara Parseghian and the other Irish players, who give him one shot at gridiron glory. An incredible true story from the creators of Hoosiers, RUDY is an unforgettable testament to the power of dreams and the triumph of the common man.

  • Rob Marshall's Live-Action The Little Mermaid Splashes Down on Blu-ray and 4K UHD Blu-ray on September 19

    The Little Mermaid (2023) - Disney Remake Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray

    Disney's The Little Mermaid (2023) starring Halle Bailey as Ariel and Melissa McCarthy as Ursula will arrive on Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray on September 19. It will also be exclusively available at Digital Retailers on July 25.

    The Little Mermaid is visionary filmmaker Rob Marshall’s live-action reimagining of Disney’s beloved animated musical classic, the story of Ariel, a beautiful and spirited young mermaid with a thirst for adventure. The youngest of King Triton’s daughters and the most defiant, Ariel longs to find out more about the world beyond the sea and, while visiting the surface, falls for the dashing Prince Eric. While mermaids are forbidden to interact with humans, Ariel must follow her heart. She makes a deal with the evil sea witch, Ursula, which gives her a chance to experience life on land but ultimately places her life – and her father’s crown – in jeopardy. “The Little Mermaid” is directed by Rob Marshall with a screenplay by David Magee, and is produced by Marc Platt, Lin-Manuel Miranda, John DeLuca and Rob Marshall.
