Big week for me. I'll be getting The House Of Seven Gables, The Land Unknown and The Strange Door. At some point, I'll grab A Face In The Crowd.

–Something a little “off” this week. Amazon is listing all of this week’s new releases as available on Monday, April 22—rather than the more tradition TUESDAY date of April 23rd. I have no idea why. Either way not a big deal.
Near as I can tell, Amazon has started to label all their upcoming books and discs a day early now. I guess their logic is that it can ship on Monday (for a release date arrival) so it's "available" that day?

Thanks Mike! Super excited for the Captain America films in 4K as well as Alien! (PS, Alien was 1979 I believe). Great job as always and my sincere appreciation for all of your hard work!

Just one for me this week, the rest I want will have to wait since my DVD/Blu-ray budget took a bit of a beating with the Kino sale this month.

I had both Captain America's on 4k on preorder, but they haven't moved off of $29.99 each. I'll wait.

Now Alien 4k...that's a ridiculously low price for a classic movie on 4k which apparently looks great. Through a quirk of fate, I had some Amazon credits which applied to this order, meaning my price for Alien is $5.48 (with tax). Tuesday night is not a gym night, so I'm going to introduce the pups to a good Zenomorph (as opposed to Alien: Covenant) when I get home.

Thanks Mike!

Thanks for the prices, Mike! I have the UHD of Alien on pre-order, but that's all for me. I was planning on getting A Face in the Crowd, but I picked up the digital version on sale via iTunes recently instead. I don't think I will upgrade my BDs of the Captain America films to UHD, as I am happy with the current discs.

There's likely to be a Captain America 4K box set coming. One is already announced in Europe.

Disney U.S. hasn't really done box sets of the Marvel films, except for that Amazon-exclusive Phase One box set. (Remember when Amazon was playing nice with Disney? Seems like a long time ago.) I'm not saying you're wrong to suspect a box set, but if it did happen, that would be new behavior on Disney's part.

There was also a Phase II set with the Orb from Guardians of the Galaxy.

There is a Phase III set in the UK.

One can always order it from Amazon UK. About $55 shipped right now.

Thanks as always, Mike.
