The twenty-fifth anniversary of Batman: The Animated Series is now more than just a celebration for fans. Warner Bros. reveals an official Blu-ray remastering of The Dark Knight’s animated adventures will hit shelves in 2018.
Future Westworld might as well be the desert HBO spent ten episodes crossing, for all the waiting we’ve done. Comic-Con 2017 will help quench our thirst, but so will a November Blu-ray release of the first season, now with its own official trailer, cover art and cryptic title.
The fourth and final season of Star Wars Rebels will be upon us before we know it, so there’s no better time to take stock of Season 3. Get a taste of the Blu-ray release – including the show’s first commentary – with new details and sneak peeks!
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.
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.
Just a scant few hours ago, Game of Thrones broke hearts with the news that a shorter Season 7 would indeed arrive later in 2017 than expected, but there’s good news yet.

Captain America: Civil War is officially the highest-grossing film of 2016 (domestically) with over $400 million at the box office — which means you’re probably pretty excited about owning Marvel’s latest superhero epic when it comes to DVD and Blu-ray; which also means that this bit of news is of particular interest to you. Disney has set an official Blu-ray release date for Civil War, and if you’re curious about the special features, they’ve revealed those, too.
