The 2004 film adaptation of “The Stepford Wives” starring Nicole Kidman is coming to Blu-ray Disc on June 1st via Paramount Home Entertainment. The film, based on the book (of the same title) and directed by Frank Oz, co-starred Matthew Broderick, Bette Midler, Christopher Walken, Faith Hill, Jon Lovitz, and Glenn Close. The tech specs for the Blu-ray have not yet been detailed, nor have bonus materials [if any are] set to be included on the release but stay tuned for an update. You can find the Blu-ray now available for preorder over at Amazon.

The 1993 film “Hocus Pocus” is coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray on September 15th, via Disney, according to multiple retailer sources. The film, directed by Kenny Ortega and co-written by Mick Garris, starred Bette MidlerSarah Jessica ParkerKathy NajimyOmri Katz, Thora Birch, Vinessa Shaw, and Doug Jones. The tech specs and bonus materials for the release have not yet been detailed but stay tuned for an update. It is known, so far from the art, that the release will come in the form of a “combo pack” meaning that the 4K will include a Blu-ray Disc counterpart and a digital code (copy) of the film. You can now find the 4K UHD Blu-ray available for preorder over at retailers Best Buy, Target and Walmart — both showing the September release date. Also, online retailer Deep Discount now has the title available for preorder, again showing the same release date. There’s currently no preorder listing for the 4K yet over at Amazon but stay tuned for an update on that. Lastly, Disney has yet to officially announce this title but it is apparent that it is coming out based on retailers.

UPDATE: Our friend Den of Geeks just tweeted out the cover art (pictured below) for what will be an exclusive 4K UHD Blu-ray SteelBook for the film available at retailer Best Buy, and there is now a preorder listing available.

Lastly, I’ve also heard (again, from a tweet), via someone with Disney, that this film has received a new scan which was supervised by the film’s director Kenny Ortega.
