Amazon Commissions Earned

The 1992 film “Army of Darkness” is officially coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray on September 27th via Scream Factory (Shout! Factory).  The film, directed and co-written by Sam Raimi, starred Bruce Campbell, Embeth Davidtz, Marcus Gilbert, Ian Abercrombie, Bridget Fonda, and Richard Grove.  The release will come in the form of a 4-disc “combo pack” with several Blu-ray Discs of the film included along with extras.  There will be a standard 4K UHD Bluray (pictured above) and then also a limited-edition 4K UHD Blu-ray SteelBook (pictured below).

The tech specs for the 4K releases include a 2160p video presentation in various aspect ratios and presumably with HDR10 (at least) and Dolby Atmos and the original 5.1 and 2.0 stereo lossless mixes. However, it has yet to be confirmed by Shout! Factory.  So, stay tuned for an update on that and regarding other details.

You can now find both the 4K UHD Blu-ray and the 4K UHD Blu-ray SteelBook available for preorder over at Amazon and also directly [with bonuses] directly via the ShoutFactory.com store.  According to Shout! Factory, the extras [bonus materials] are “currently in progress” and will be announced at a later point.  So, as mentioned, stay tuned for an update regarding these 4K releases of the film.
