Amazon Commissions Earned

It may not have initially received a release on the format, but the 2021 film Malignant is finally coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray on May 24th via Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, according to retail sources.  The film, produced, co-written & directed by James Wan, stars Annabelle Wallis, Maddie Hasson, George Young, Michole Briana White, Jean Louisa Kelly, Susanna Thompson, Jake Abel, and Jacqueline McKenzie. It is most certainly worth noting, that at the time of writing, this film is “Certified Fresh” currently over at Rotten Tomatoes.

The tech specs for the release have not yet been detailed but you can for sure expect a 2160p video presentation in the 2.39:1 aspect ratio with at least HDR10 (and possibly Dolby Vision) form of high dynamic range along with Dolby Atmos sound — as featured on HBO Max.  The release will come in the form of a “combo pack” (according to the artwork), meaning it will come with its Blu-ray counterpart and also include a digital code (copy) of the film.

You can now find the 4K UHD Blu-ray available for preorder over at Amazon and retailer Walmart.  This should include the identical bonus material from the previous Blu-ray, listed below.
