What, did you think the studios and boutique labels would take the month off just because we had a stacked February with an intensely busy April and May release frame coming?
Considering everything that's coming our way in the next few months, the one good thing we can say is that March is relatively light. There are some great catalog titles coming along with a few new releases with quite a few long-awaited favorites. We get a mix of new and old. Werewolves and Keanu Reeves. Italian Mobsters and Russian Mobsters. And while this month might be on the light side, doesn't mean it'll be cheap! With that - let's get into it:
Just because it's Fat Tuesday doesn't mean the month has a lot to indulge in. In fact, there's only one release and it's a repackage of discs that are already available.
Things pick up a little bit this month with a return to The Matrix leading the pack with Downton Abbey getting an upgrade just before the second film hits theaters, and another Argento film slips onto 2160p.
March 15th, 2022 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Releases
Well, of all the days for the knives to come out for your wallet - this is historically fitting! Between multiple classics reaching 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray thanks to KLSC, Criterion, Arrow, and Scream Factory all have new releases on top of Paramount dropping a couple with Disney/20th Century Studios doing a full-court press for Spielberg's latest Oscar contender.
There is just nothing good coming out this month. Nope. Not a thing.
And as quietly as March started, it goes out on a pretty soft note. But between a legendary concert film and a popular kid's flick, there's still some good stuff worth checking out.
And that just about does it. As always, release dates can change and if that happens we'll update our listings and this article as soon as we can. Scouring around the international releases, the only notable title we'll be covering is The Texas Chain Saw Massacre 4K SteelBook from Turbine Media Group - but that doesn't street until the end of the month and customs can be a little dodgy delaying delivery, so we'll get to it when we can as soon as we can.
Once again - thank you for your pre-orders. They really do go a long way towards keeping our little corner of the interwebs alive and going.
