Key Art Round-Up: September 7, 2016
For your viewing pleasure, it’s time for another round of cool front art from some upcoming Blu-ray releases. Here’s what we got for this week:
First up is Nicholas Winding Refn’s newest film, THE NEON DEMON, starring Elle Fanning, Karl Glusman, Jena Malone, Bella Heathcote, Abbey Lee, Christina Hendricks and Keanu Reeves. This one comes out on September 27th. Extras are still to be announced.
Next is the hit film, LIGHTS OUT. Produced by James Wan (THE CONJURING), this is David F. Sandberg’s feature-length version of his 2013 short film. Warner Bros. will release LIGHTS OUT on Blu-ray on October 25th. The only extra is a few deleted scenes.
One title we told you about on the show last week that is coming to Blu-ray was the 2015 horror anthology, TALES OF HALLOWEEN. Now you can check out the cover to what will be a four-disc Special Collector’s Edition! The region-free set includes a Blu-ray and DVD of the film, a DVD of bonus material, and a soundtrack CD. TALES OF HALLOWEEN is set for release on September 13th, but you can pre-order your copy here.
Just announced today, Shout Factory have two new Collector’s Editions to add to their Shout Select sub-label: the Bruce Lee classics, FISTS OF FURY (A.K.A. THE BIG BOSS) and THE CHINESE CONNECTION. Both films have been restored in 4K and are planned to hit the streets on December 6th. Bonus features TBA.
Speaking of Shout! Factory, Scream Factory unveiled the new key art for their Collector’s Edition of DREAMSCAPE, which now has a street date of December 13th. The new cover was created by Paul Shipper, who is also responsible for the new art of THE THING Collector’s Edition. Pre-order link is up to reserve your copy, plus a free 18″ x 24″ poster.
And finally, comes the newly-commissioned art for what will most likely be the hottest classic title of the holiday season: Bob Clark’s 1974 horror masterpiece, BLACK CHRISTMAS. How awesome is this cover? You can thank Joel Robinson, who hit a home run with the art for the TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE PART II Collector’s Edition earlier this year. The special features for this two-disc Collector’s Edition will be announced “sometime in Oct.” Go to this link to reserve your copy now!
