The 2020 TV series adaptation of Stephen King‘s “The Stand“ is officially coming to Blu-ray Disc on October 5th, via CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment. The TV series, as seen on Paramount Plus (formerly CBS All Access), starred James Marsden, Odessa Young, Alexander Skarsgård, Amber Heard, Jovan Adepo, Owen Teague, Brad William Henke, Henry Zaga, Ezra Miller, Greg Kinnear, and Whoopi Goldberg.
UPDATE: The tech specs for the release include a 1080p HD video presentation in the 2.39:1 aspect ratio and DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless surround sound, spanning across what seems to be a 3-disc set. Stay tuned for an update, as I’ve asked CBS for more info in regards to those specifics.
The 2020 TV series Blu-ray is now available for preorder over at Amazon. You can find a list of bonus materials set to be included with the release listed below.
AN APOCALYPTIC EPIC: ADAPTING THE STAND – Go inside the creative process of bringing all facets of King’s beloved epic to life on screen.
It’s also worth noting that there will be “The Stand: The Definitive 2-Series Collection“ 2-pack set on Blu-ray available on October 5th as well, and now available for preorder over at Amazon (pictured below). That will include both the 1994 TV series adaptation and the 2020 TV series adaptation together.

Further below, after the break, you can find a brief announcement from CBS Home Entertainment about these two releases.
The firstthree films in the “X-Men” film franchise will be getting released in the form of the “X-Men 3-Film Collection“ on the 4K UHD Blu-ray format on September 25th via Fox, according to retailer listings. The title has not yet officially been announced by the studio, so we don’t have any specific tech specs to go on here. It’s worth noting that this joins the three latter “X-Men” films already available on the format, also released bundled together, but also separately. No word yet on if these will receive individual releases, like the latter films, anytime soon or not.
The release will be a 6-disc “combo pack” with the Blu-ray Discs of the three films also included, along with a Digital Copy of each film. The three films included in this set are “X-Men” (2000), “X2: X-Men United” (2003) – both directed by Bryan Singer – and “X-Men: The Last Stand” (2006) directed by Brett Ratner. The 4K set is now available for PRE-ORDER over at Amazon. UPDATE: This title is now available for PRE-ORDER also over at Best Buy, again with the cover art I originally featured.
