The 1988 film “The Accused“ is coming to Blu-ray Disc for the very first time on March 15th, 2022 via Paramount Home Entertainment. The film, directed by Jonathan Kaplan, starred Kelly McGillis, Jodie Foster (in an Oscar-winning role), Bernie Coulson, Leo Rossi, Ann Hearn, Carmen Argenziano, and Steve Antin. As noted, this film had previously never been available on Blu-ray stateside and this will mark its debut to the format.
The tech specs for the release include a 1080p HD video presentation [in presumably the original 1.85:1 aspect ratio] with Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless surround sound. You can now find the Blu-ray available for preorder over at Amazon. No bonus materials will be included with this release.
The 1986 film “Top Gun“ starring Tom Cruise is coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray in a big way on May 19th, via Paramount. The film, directed by the late Tony Scott, is finally about to receive a sequel with “Top Gun: Maverick“ later this year and that’s likely why this release is timed for its theatrical release. Top Gun co-starred Kelly McGillis, Anthony Edwards, Tom Skerritt, Michael Ironside, Tim Robbins, Meg Ryan, and Val Kilmer.
The release will come as a “combo pack” with the Blu-ray counterpart and a digital code (copy) of the film included. You can now find the standard 4K UHD Blu-ray release available for preorder over at Amazon and a placeholder page listed over at retailer Best Buy. It’s certainly worth noting that the film will be receiving a 4K UHD Blu-ray SteelBook release as well, available at all retailers, and now up for preorder over at Amazon and at retailer Best Buy. You can find a glimpse at the artwork for that SteelBook below.
UPDATE: The tech specs and bonus materials for the release have been unveiled via the Amazon listing now with the back of the package art. Tech specs include video in HDR10 and Dolby Vision forms of High Dynamic Range and Dolby Atmos sound.
