The 2018 Drew Pearce written and directed film “Hotel Artemis” is coming to both 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray Disc on October 9th via Global Road Entertainment (likely to be distributed by Universal). This news comes via multiple early alerts to retailers. The film, currently still in theaters, includes a pretty stellar cast such as Jodie Foster, Jeff Goldblum, Sofia Boutella, Sterling K. Brown, Brian Tyree Henry, Jenny Slate, Zachary Quinto, Charlie Day, and Dave Bautista – to just name a few. Tech specs for the releases have not yet been fully detailed, nor have the bonus materials (if any) set to be included, but stay tuned for an update. Both releases come in the form of a “combo pack” with 4K release getting a Blu-ray, and the Blu-ray release getting a DVD, of the film also included. The PRE-ORDER listings are now available over at Amazon, as well as other retailers. Below, after the break, you can find the cover art for the Blu-ray Disc version.
Disney has now officially announced plans to bring the 2018 Marvel Studios film “Avengers: Infinity War” to 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray Disc on August 14th. Tech specs for the releases are as follows: the 4K UHD Blu-ray will receive Dolby Atmos sound and the Blu-ray Disc will receive DTS-HD 7.1 Master Audio sound. Both will be presented visually in the 2.39:1 aspect ratio with HDR10 High Dynamic Range. The pre-order listings are not yet available over at Amazon, but stay tuned for updates.
UPDATE: Forbes Tech journalist John Archer has received official word from Disney that this title will only receive HDR10 and not also include Dolby Vision – as most expected. Also, as many fans have expressed, even to me on social media, this release will be in the 2.39:1 aspect ratio strictly and not expand to the IMAX 1.90:1 aspect ratio as it did during its theatrical run. More info regarding this can be found in John’s article.
The 4K UHD Blu-ray release will come in the form of a “combo” pack with a Blu-ray Disc and Digital Copy of the film included. The Blu-ray Disc will include a Digital Copy of the film. Bonus materials set to be included on both versions are listed further below, after the break.
