The 1985 film Lifeforce will be getting a 4K UHD Blu-ray “Collector’s Edition” release on May 24th via Scream Factory.  The film, directed by Tobe Hooper, starred Steve Railsback, Peter Firth, Frank Finlay, Mathilda May, Michael Gothard, Nicholas Ball, and Patrick Stewart.

UPDATED:  The exact tech specs have yet to be detailed but you can expect a 2160p video presentation in the 2.35:1 aspect ratio taken from a new “2021 4K scan of the original negative” and lossless audio.  One could expect, although it has not been confirmed that this should include HDR10 form of high dynamic range on the 4K.  It is known (via the artwork, pictured above) that this release will come in the form of a “combo pack” with the 4K getting its Blu-ray Disc counterpart included.  In fact, this will include the theatrical cut of the film on 4K and Blu-ray as well as the “Director’s Cut” on a 3rd Blu-ray (in 1080p HD).  You can find the 4K UHD Blu-ray now available for preorder over at Amazon.  Below is a full list of the 3-disc sets details and bonus materials set to be included.
