Given how much space physical media takes up, it’s hard for movie buffs to say no to the great promise of “cloud storage,” and the idea that we could summon anything we want to watch with just a couple of clicks. But so far, reality hasn’t matched the hype. Streaming services have been focused on exclusives and original programming, to the extent that the only way to have access to everything available is to spend hundreds of dollars a month on subscription fees. Meanwhile, older films keep disappearing from the digital archives; and even items that cinephiles “own” sometimes become inaccessible whenever software updates or a site shutters.

Netflix doesn’t make a regular habit of Blu-ray and DVD releases for its original programs, especially as fans of certain series likely already have streaming access. Nonetheless, the ubiquitous popularity of Daredevil has earned Season 1 an official Blu-ray release for November.

It doesn’t appear as if Constantine will be returning to The CW just yet (though Matt Ryan has his own Justice League to attend to), so where best to get your fix of the chain-smoking demon-detective? NBC’s Constantine will officially hit Blu-ray in October, after time spent on CW Seed.

The Black-and-White ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Is Coming to Blu-Ray

In interviews, Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller talked about wanting to show his movie in black-and-white. In a conversation with director Edgar Wright, he explained that “the default position for everyone is to de-saturate post-apocalyptic movies. There’s only two ways to go, make them black and white — the best version of this movie is black and white, but people reserve that for art movies now.” There were rumblings of a theatrical release of a black-and-white Fury Road, but that never came to pass. But the monochromatic print (heavy on the chrome, in this case) of the movie is coming to Blu-ray, and you’ll be able to get it before the end of the year.

With Paul Feig at the helm and a quartet of hilarious women who are great at improvising, it’s not surprising that the upcoming Blu-ray and DVD release of the Ghostbusters reboot is packed with additional scenes, outtakes, deleted scenes, gag reels and — as many fans hoped — an extended cut of the film. We won’t have a chance to see any of these bonus materials until October, but it should be interesting for those who felt as though Feig’s theatrical version may have been a little too safe.

Disney’s Star Wars Rebels has made no secret of its influence from the original designs of artist Ralph McQuarrie, but multiple designs have escaped even sharp-eyed viewers. No longer, as the latest Season 2 Blu-ray featurette spotlights everything from Kylo Ren’s lightsaber to Leia’s familiar costume.
