    Superman Ultimate Collector’s Edition Blu-ray Coming Up
    Spanish site Zona DVD is reporting that Warner Home Video is preparing the Blu-ray release of Superman Ultimate Collector's Edition, including all the existing Superman movies (Superman: The Movie, Superman II, Superman III, Superman IV: The Quest for Peace and Superman Returns); note that III and IV are new to high-def. The pack will reportedly consist of seven discs, with similar content to that of the standard-definition set released in 2006.

    The release date has not been set yet. Although the new Supes movie, Superman: Man of Steel, is slated for theatrical release in December 2012, ZonaDVD states that it is highly likely that this BD set will come out as early as 2011.


    Stand By Me Blu-ray Announced
    Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has announced Stand By Me for Blu-ray release on March 22. This celebrated 1986 coming-of-age story, directed by Rob Reiner and based on a short novel by Stephen King, centers around a group of friends in a late-1950s Oregon town. This BD will exclusively offer a new BonusView picture-in-picture track.

    Special features include:

    * 25 Years Later: A picture-in-picture commentary retrospective with director Rob Reiner and actors Wil Wheaton and Corey Feldman
    * Audio commentary with director Rob Reiner
    * Featurette: Walking the Tracks: The Summer of Stand by Me including interviews with Stephen King and Rob Reiner
    * Music video: Ben E. King, "Stand By Me"

    I only got Superman The Movie on Blu. Really disappointing release. Extended Cut only, no features from the four disc DVD edition. I really hope WB upgrades for this new set. They should include both cuts of Superman and Superman 2.

    They should throw Supergirl in there somewhere...

    And do some kind of "Best of Superman on TV" or something... I'm sure lots of Superman fans and new fans alike will be excited to see those

    Yep...it gets a bad rap though. I found it to be very unique and a beautifully done film though the subject matter is quite depressing.

    Heavy Metal Blu-ray Resurfaces - As Best Buy Exclusive
    Apparently today is Retailer Exclusivity Day. Sony Pictures' animated cult movie Heavy Metal, initially announced for Blu-ray release on January 25 and later cancelled (see Blu-ray.com, November 15 and December 6, 2010), is now available for preorder exclusively at Best Buy, with a release date of February 1.

    Another Best Buy Blu-ray Exclusive: Manchurian Candidate 1962

    Best Buy has secured the exclusivity for another catalog title, this time from the MGM/UA catalog: the original John Frankenheimer version of The Manchurian Candidate, starring Laurence Harvey and Frank Sinatra (not to be mistaken with the 2004 remake, released on BD in early 2007), which is already up for preorder, with a release date of May 3 and a price of $16.99. Other release details are still unknown.
