The COBRA Connection – New Blu-ray Releases for Nov 1, 2016

 

Cult Of Blu-Ray Addicts
The COBRA Connection is the connection for your collection! A niche-focused listing of new and exclusive domestic (US) Blu-ray releases. There are a lot of sites out there that list the major new releases, but we’re more interested in more collectable fare such as retailer exclusives, boutique distributors, limited editions, and the “best” editions of any particular new release. We’re Blu-ray focused but may include the odd DVD. Links point to Amazon where applicable or retailer/distributor websites as needed.

Star Trek Beyond beams onto Blu-ray this week with several retailer exclusives. Best Buy’s Steelbook is by far the most beautiful, but Amazon’s 4K + 3D package packs the most punch. Target has an exclusive window slipcover that can be customized using the included character cards, while Walmart packs in some snazzy toy starships with the standard Blu-ray.

Fans of the classic 60s Adam West Batman should take note: that version of the character returns in a new animated movie. Retailer exclusives apply, most notably a Steelbook at Target.

MOD is making big waves this week with lots of BD-R titles from Sony and Gravitas. Gravitas is using the platform to bring obscure and independent films to the format, while Sony continues to use it as an overpriced burial ground for movies that often deserve better.

Also of interest this week: Film Detective’s Film Noir Collection, The Satanist from Garagehouse, Doc Savage: Man Of Bronze from Warner Archive, the final volume and complete series of Hell On Wheels, Bad Moms, Imperium, and more.
