There have been a couple different official Blu-ray releases of the original Star Wars trilogy. First it arrived in a box set that featured all six movies, and then they were re-released in individual steelbooks last year leading up to Star Wars: The Force Awakens in theaters. However, we’re still waiting for the rumored official Blu-ray release of the theatrical cuts without the special edition “enhancements” that have not pleased most Star Wars fans.
However, if you already have the original Star Wars trilogy on Blu-ray in some form, but you’re looking to make the trio of movies look a little more aesthetically pleasing on your shelf, we have something cool for you. One fan has created custom Blu-ray covers with art from Ralph McQuarrie that you can print out for your own collection. See the artwork below. Read More »
Shane Black‘s new film The Nice Guys doesn’t hit theaters until May 20th. Judging by the trailers, we’ve got another fantastic dark comedic crime thriller on our hands that could make for a great double feature with the Iron Man 3 director’s debut film Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. We won’t know for sure if the movie is good until May, but we do know that the soundtrack is a good one, and it’s getting a risque vinyl LP soundtrack for adults only around the time the film hits theaters. You can check it out below, and don’t worry, the images are safe for work. Read More »
In addition to fantastic artwork, Mondo has also been churning out some incredible, exclusive vinyl albums for some of your favorite film scores and soundtracks. And kicking off 2016 with a bang is a vinyl re-release of the late James Horner’s score for Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan. Making this vinyl even sweeter is some stellar cover art created by Matt Taylor, but the real draw is that this vinyl has the extended score on two LPs. Read More »

The upcoming revival of The X-Files is an actual thing and not a figment of our collective imaginations. Yes, there is actually new X-Files material set to air on televisions that don’t exist entirely inside our minds. We know this because there are photos from the set and trailers online. However, we also know this because Fox is releasing a new Blu-ray box set collecting the entire original series and the collection’s box art has officially been revealed. It’s like they wanted to capitalize on our excitement and get us to purchase an expensive and grandiose object to celebrate our obsession!
Yep, they’ve got us. Check out the art for the X-Files box set and other details after the jump.

Okay, so I think we’ve probably all owned the Star Wars movies (or at very least, the original Star Wars trilogy) a handful of times on different platforms and formats. George Lucas was always good about adding something new that we had to have, “forcing” us to rebut the series again. And now that the films are out of Lucas’ hands, the cycle is still happening. In April, Disney released the Star Wars films on digital platforms in HD with new special features (and yes, I bought the collection yet again on Apple TV).
Today, Walt Disney Studios, Lucasfilm and 20th Century Fox announced that they will release the six films as commemorative Blu-ray steelbooks on November 10th 2015. Previously the series was only available on Blu-ray in trilogy or series collections, and not individually. Also they will also be rereleasing Star Wars: The Complete Saga in newly repackaged artwork on October 13th. Hit the jump to check out all of the new Star Wars steelbooks covers and learn more.
