Both releases will come in the form of a “combo pack” with the 4K getting a Blu-ray included, the Blu-ray getting a DVD included, and each receiving a Digital Copy of the film. Stay tuned for any further updates on this release. As with all rumors, take this only with a “grain of salt” so-to-speak until the title is officially announced by the studio. Lastly, it’s worth noting that PRE-ORDER listings are also available over at Amazon for both the 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray Disc.
The 2012 animated film “Wreck-It Ralph“ featuring the voice of John C. Reilly is coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray on November 6th via Disney, according to an early alert to retailers.

The technical specifications and bonus materials for the release have not yet been detailed, but stay tuned for an update. It is know, via the cover art, that the release will come in the form of a “combo pack” with a Blu-ray Disc included as well as a Digital Copy of the film. The title being released on 4K is certainly timed to be a marketing tie-in with the sequel (“Ralph Breaks the Internet“) coming out later in November.

The 1968 Stanley Kubrick directed film “2001: A Space Odyssey” is getting an Exclusive Steelbook release on the 4K UHD Blu-ray format December 18th via Warner at retailer Best Buy. The tech specs and bonus materials for this release will be identical to the standard 4K release, as previously detailed HERE.

Retailer Best Buy has three Exclusive Steelbooks on Blu-ray Disc planned for movies based on Stephen King stories. The TV mini-series “It“ (1990), TV movie “Salem’s Lot“ (1979), and film “The Shining“ (1980) will get Steelbook treatment on October 2nd via Warner. The titles are all available for PRE-ORDER over at Best Buy priced at just $12.99 each. Their art can be seen above and below, but the full-size art hasn’t appeared yet on the web side, just on the mobile app side.
These are all three re-releases already available on the Blu-ray Disc format. No new transfers or bonus materials will be found on the new Steelbooks. It’s my guess that these are just being repackaged, likely in a marketing tie-in, to go with the currently available Warner produced Hulu series “Castle Rock“ – based on Stephen King stories.
