The 1994 TV mini-series adaptation of “Stephen King’s The Stand is officially coming to Blu-ray Disc on September 24th via CBS Home Entertainment. The mini-series, directed by Mick Garris, starred Gary Sinise, Molly Ringwald, Jamey Sheridan, Laura San Giacomo, Ruby Dee, Ossie DavisRob Lowe, Bill Fagerbakke, Miguel Ferrer, Ray Walston, and Stephen King.

UPDATES: This Blu-ray is now available for pre-order over at Amazon. CBS Home Entertainment has just released an e-mail with the following info that officially confirms the release. I’ll try to get further info about it. I’ve also just now updated this story with the official Blu-ray artwork (above). From that artwork, we can tell that it will come as a 2-disc set and that the mini-series has been “brilliantly restored.” This is great news, considering how Mick Garris expressed some concerns when I spoke to him in regards to this as the story was developing. More on that below but first the info sent out.

Title: Stephen King’s The Stand
Street Date: September 24, 2019
Format: Blu-Ray
Description: The Stand is a post-apocalyptic horror/fantasy novel by American author Stephen King. It expands upon the scenario of his earlier short story “Night Surf” and presents a detailed vision of the total breakdown of society after the accidental release of a strain of influenza that had been modified for biological warfare causes an apocalyptic pandemic, killing off over 99% of the world’s population

The Blu-ray is listed now over at retailer Best Buy but the pre-order is not yet functional – so it seems. Lastly, after the break, you can find some of a conversation that I had (along with some readers) with the director of the mini-series Mick Garris about this upcoming Blu-ray release on Twitter.

RUMOR: “Super Troopers 2” is coming to Blu-ray Disc in July

UPDATE: Amazon has posted what would seem to be the official cover art, pictured above, on the PRE-ORDER page.

According to an early alert to retailers it would seem that Fox plans to bring the 2018 Broken Lizard film “Super Troopers 2” to Blu-ray Disc on July 17th. This comes from the pre-order listing over on Best Buy. The title is also available for PRE-ORDER over at Amazon, which now features the same release date. CONFIRMED!

No word yet regarding tech specs or bonus material, just that it will be a “combo pack” – including both Blu-ray Disc, DVD as well as a Digital Copy of the film. Also, sadly it would appear there are NO plans for a 4K UHD Blu-ray release of the film, as it was shot at only 2.8K resolution, plus it didn’t do too well at the box office or with critics. On that note though, I personally, I actually saw the film and liked it.

Also the boys have posted a video promoting the release, discussing what all it will feature in terms of bonus materials. The video can be found below (after the break), via Twitter.
