The Boys Seasons 1 & 2 come to Blu-ray in May

Amazon Commissions Earned

The TV show The Boys: Seasons 1 & 2 Collection will officially be coming to Blu-ray Disc on May 31st via Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.  The show, as seen on Prime Video, was created by Eric Kripke, and it stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capone, Karen Fukuhara, Nathan Mitchell, Elisabeth Shue, Colby Minifie, and Aya Cash.

The tech specs for the release include a 1080p video presentation in the 1.78:1 aspect ratio and DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless surround sound.  There’s one problem with that aspect ratio the press release [later shown in full] mentions.  The show is actually listed [on IMDb] to air in the 2.39:1 aspect ratio on Prime Video.  So, that’s either a typo or an odd choice?  We shall soon see.  P.S. Fun fact, this show is said to be shot in 7K resolution digitally.

UPDATE:  You can now find the Blu-ray available for preorder over at Amazon.

The bonus materials set to be included for each season are listed below.

SEASON 1 BLU-RAY

  • Deleted Scenes
  • Blooper Reel

SEASON 2 BLU-RAY

  • Butcher: A Short Film
  • Deleted & Extended Scenes
  • Blooper Reel

Further below, after the break, you can find the full announcement about the upcoming home video releases.

2022 Scream film comes to 4K and Blu-ray in April

Amazon Commissions Earned

The 2022 sequel “Scream” is officially coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray Disc on April 5th via Paramount Home Entertainment.  The film, directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin & Tyler Gillett, stars Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Melissa Barrera, Jack Quaid, Mikey Madison, Jenna Ortega, Dylan Minnette, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Mason Gooding, Sonia Ammar, and Marley Shelton.

It’s most certainly worth noting that, at the time of publishing, this film is “Certified Fresh” over at Rotten Tomatoes.  I just wish they didn’t have to put a permanent logo on the cover art because of that.

Tech specs for the 4K UHD Blu-ray and the Blu-ray have not yet been detailed.  However, it is worth noting that the digital version of the film [in 4K] features Dolby Vision and HDR10 forms of high dynamic range and 5.1 surround sound.  So, it’s likely those will be the specs for the 4K release and perhaps the Blu-ray will get that 5.1 sound mix.  Both releases will include a digital code (copy) of the film.

You can now find the 4K UHD Blu-ray and the Blu-ray available for preorder over at Amazon.  There will be a Scream 2-Movie Collection available on 4K UHD Blu-ray with the first [1996] film and the most recent [2022] film and that is now available for preorder over at Amazon.

Retailer Best Buy will be getting an exclusive 4K UHD Blu-ray SteelBook which is listed and has some temporary cover art at the moment.  Also, retailer Walmart will be getting a 4K UHD Blu-ray bundle featuring a poster (pictured below) which is now available for preorder.

The bonus materials set to be included with both releases are listed below.

  • Filmmaker Commentary—The directors, writers and filmmakers reveal the unwritten rules for surviving this genre-busting horror movie.
  • Bloodlines—Catch up with Scream stars Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, and David Arquette for a deep dive into their characters and why they came back for a fresh stab at their favorite horror franchise.
  • New Blood—Meet the new generation of Woodsboro victims and potential killers!
  • In the Shadow of the Master—The cast honor movie maestro Wes Craven and look back on his incredible legacy as the director who redefined horror.
  • Deleted Scenes—Look out! They’re back from the dead: see the scenes slashed from the movie.
