Amazon Commissions Earned

The 1978 version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers is officially coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray on November 23rd via KL Studio Classics, according to a recent Facebook announcement. The film, based on the novel “The Body Snatchers” (written by Jack Finney) and directed by Philip Kaufman, starred Donald Sutherland, Brooke Adams, Jeff Goldblum, Veronica Cartwright, Art Hindle, and Leonard Nimoy. The movie has been newly restored from a new 4K scan of the original camera negative, which was then approved & color graded by the film’s director (Philip Kaufman).

The tech specs for the release include a 2160p video presentation in the 1.85:1 aspect ratio with HDR10 and Dolby Vision forms of high dynamic range as well as lossless 5.1 surround sound and 2.0 Stereo audio mixes (presumably in DTS-HD Master Audio format), on a BD-100 disc. The release will come in the form of a “combo pack” meaning that it will include its Blu-ray Disc counterpart, featuring the same 4K restoration and audio options (on a BD-50 disc for that).

UPDATE: You can now find the 4K UHD Blu-ray available for preorder over at Amazon.

And, no, at this time there does not appear to be a 4K SteelBook release planned for this. But, stay tuned for a possible update if one is in fact coming. The bonus materials set to be included with the release are listed below.

  • John Carpenter’s The Thing: Terror Takes Shape
  • Outtakes
  • Feature Audio Commentary with Director John Carpenter And Actor Kurt Russell
  • Theatrical Trailer

Just a reminder, to my knowledge, this release has not yet been officially announced by the studio. Or, perhaps one of the public relations firms forgot to include me in the loop? That being said, consider this still a rumor with a whole lot to back it up at this point. I don’t want to upset the studio (Universal) here, but it’s pretty obvious that this title is coming at this point.
