It sure seems that Fox Home Entertainment also plans to bring a “Predator 3-Movie Collection” to 4K UHD Blu-ray on the same date as the first film, August 7th. The collection will include the films “Predator” (1987), “Predator 2” (1990), and “Predators” (2010). Those films were directed by John McTiernan, Stephen Hopkins, and Nimród Antal. Tech specs and bonus materials have not yet been detailed, as the studio has yet to even officially announce either this or the individual release of the first film – as I had previously reported on.
I actually found this just browsing around, and at this point I wouldn’t even call it a “rumor” anymore, as we well know that the first film is coming, but now get a confirmation (of sorts) via a PRE-ORDER listing over at Amazon for this, carrying the exact same release date (8/7). Stay tuned for further updates. Also remember that the first film, “Predator“, is (as mentioned) getting its own individual release on 4K UHD Blu-ray.
UPDATE: It appears that we are going to also see individual releases for both sequels “Predator 2” and “Predators” on 4K UHD Blu-ray as well. No pre-order listings are available yet on Amazon, but stay tuned for an update when they become available. The artwork for the two titles can be found below.
As I had previously reported (back on June 14th in a “rumor”), it now is seeming more like we (U.S. consumers) are definitely going to be getting the 1987 John McTiernan directed film “Predator” released on 4K UHD Blu-ray via Fox Home Entertainment. One major thing that’s pushing this past the point of “rumor” is the fact we now have U.S. cover art depicted on Amazon (directly, above). In fact, I’m not even featuring an image for the news story header to prove this. So, take that for what it’s worth.
The release date retailers are giving for the release is August 7th. A PRE-ORDER listing, where the cover art can be found, is available now over at Amazon. Stay tuned later this month perhaps for an official press release to come out from the studio (Fox).
Also, be on the lookout for me posting the Screenshots from the previous 2010 Blu-ray Disc release of the film soon. Lastly, for those who don’t want to visit Amazon to view it, you’ll find the U.S. cover art further below after the break.
UPDATE #2: This seems to be confirmed, just not yet officially announced, as there is U.S. cover art on the PRE-ORDER listing over at Amazon.
Okay, so take this only as a RUMOR. Our friend Bill Hunt over at The Digital Bits just shared a tweet, and had been recently teasing about it, “Predator” looks to possibly be slated for an August stateside release on 4K UHD Blu-ray. The European import cover art (pictured above) that Bill posted, along with a UK release date of “8/6” in the tweet tells us to expect it likely around that same time stateside. In fact, Bill replied to me, as you’ll find further below, and speculates on a logical (Tuesday) August 7th release date. ONCE AGAIN, take this ‘with a grain of salt‘ and only as a RUMOR at this point until Fox Home Entertainment confirms it.
UPDATE #1: My co-writer (Brendan) has come across what we think to be a PRE-ORDER listing for the 4K UHD Blu-ray over at Amazon, that carries, just as Bill suggested, a AUGUST 7th release date. We cannot confirm this, yet there’s no one denying it, at this point. So, stay tuned for further updates and possibly an official release announcement later next week?
Further below, after the break, you’ll find Bill Hunt’s original tweets regarding this.
