Studio synopsis: It’s been four years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment. Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles. 

When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event.

Solo: A Star Wars Story Blu Ray Release Date and Special Features

Solo: A Star Wars Story was the second embattled Star Wars film to hit theaters in six months.  Unlike The Last Jedi, Solo flopped at the box office.  Despite making $212 million in the US and $385 million worldwide, the entry is the lowest grossing film in SW franchise history and has put the entire slate of future spin-off films on hold while Disney tries to get things back on-track with next year’s Episode IXSolo flies into home theaters on digital September 14th and on 4K and Blu Ray September 28, 2018.  Full details on the disc’s deleted scenes and special features below from Coming Soon.

Avengers: Infinity War Blu Ray Release Date and Special Features

Josh Brolin in Avengers: Infinity War
Arriving just in time to help everyone forget how unfortunate Ant-Man and the Wasp was (yeah…not sure if I’m going to write a review…I may have reached saturation point with reviewing movies that bitterly disappoint me…it WAS that bad, yes) here comes Marvel’s second of two 2018 triumphs: Infinity War on 4K and Blu Ray.  Earlier this month, it was rumored that we’d be getting 30 extra minutes of Thanos on the blu ray.  The actual blu ray falls short of that by 26 minutes.  There are a number of featurettes, deleted scenes, and a 2.5 hour commentary from the Russo Brothers to satisfy fans.  I imagine, after next year’s Avengers 4, that we’ll get some kind of double-dip release with extras beyond this for completionists, but since Marvel has never really excelled at doing more than the minimum for home video I wouldn’t wait.  Details below from Disney’s press release.  You can have Thanos at home in three weeks.  SNAP!

Marvel Studios and Disney Home Entertainment have officially announced the details for the digital, Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K release of Avengers: Infinity War. The cinematic event ten-years in the making comes home digitally on July 31 and blu-ray on August 14 with over two hours of bonus.  Continue reading Avengers: Infinity War Blu Ray Release Date and Special Features

Deadpool 2 Blu Ray Release Date and Special Features

I was a little mixed on Deadpool 2 when it came out in May.  If I had known the entire summer after it was about to do a group dive down the toilet I really would have cherished the experience more.  A day after Fox announced that it would screen an uncut version of the film at San Diego Comic-Con, it announced the digital and home video release date for the film along with a slew of special features.  The film will release digitally on August 7, 2018, and on 4K and Blu Ray August 21, 2018.  More details below from Coming Soon.

A Quiet Place Blu Ray Release Date and Special Features

Emily Blunt in A Quiet Place
Nearly halfway through 2018, A Quiet Place is still my favorite non-MCU film of the year.  I don’t think I’ve ever wanted to watch a featurette on sound editing more than I do with this film.  Release details below from Paramount.

Paramount has announced that director John Krasinski’s film A Quiet Place debuts on Digital June 26, 2018 and on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD July 10 from Paramount Home Media Distribution. Continue reading A Quiet Place Blu Ray Release Date and Special Features
