brightburn_4k

The 2019 film “Brightburn” is officially coming to both 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray Disc on August 20th via Sony. The film, directed by David Yarovesky and produced by James Gunn, stars Elizabeth Banks, David Denman, Jackson A. Dunn, Matt Jones, and Meredith Hagner. The tech specs for the 4K and the Blu-ray have not yet been detailed although you likely can expect HDR10 form of High Dynamic Range on the 4K and Dolby Atmos sound on both. Stay tuned for an update on that. Both releases will come in the form of “combo pack” with the 4K getting a Blu-ray, the Blu-ray getting a DVD, and a digital copy of the film included on each. You can now find the 4K UHD Blu-ray and the Blu-ray both available for pre-order over at Amazon and at retailer Best Buy. Bonus materials set to be included on the releases are listed below.

  • 3 “Quick Burns” Vignettes hosted by Actor Elizabeth Banks, Producer James Gunn & Director David Yarovesky
  • “Hero-Horror!” featurette: It’s not often filmmakers successfully and seamlessly combine both Horror and Superhero into a genre-bending “Hero-Horror” category. Hear from Producer James Gunn and Screenwriters Brian and Mark Gunn as we will learn the methods of their filmmaking style and their dotting of the “i”’s and slashing of the “t”’s storytelling process.
  • “Nature vs. Nurture” featurette: Hear from Actor Jackson A. Dunn, Producer James Gunn, Screenwriters Brian and Mark Gunn and understand the creative process involved in flipping the script of the traditional “Superhero” and diving into what motivates and moves our new Anti-hero, Brandon Breyer.
  • Filmmaker Commentary with Director David Yarovesky, DP Michael Dallatorre, and Costume Designer Autumn Steed
