Amazon Commissions Earned
According to retailer listings, the 1971 film “A Clockwork Orange“ is coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray on September 21st, via Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. The title has yet to be officially announced by the studio (Warner) but stay tuned for an update on that. The film, written, produced, and directed by Stanley Kubrick, starred Malcolm McDowell, Patrick Magee, Warren Clarke, James Marcus, John Clive, Adrienne Corri, Michael Tarn, David Prowse, Sheila Raynor, and Philip Stone.
The tech specs for the release include a 4K 2160p video presentation in the 1.66:1 aspect ratio with HDR10 form of high dynamic range and DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless surround sound. The release will come in the form of a “combo pack” meaning that it will include its Blu-ray Disc counterpart and a digital code (copy) of the film, compatible with Movies Anywhere.
You cannot yet find the 4K UHD Blu-ray standard release available for preorder over at Amazon but there is a placeholder page. Also, it is now available to preorder over at retailer Best Buy. It’s most certainly worth noting that there will be a 4K UHD Blu-ray SteelBook available as an exclusive over at retailer Best Buy (pictured below), which is available now for preorder.
The bonus materials for the 4K UHD Blu-ray release of the film are listed below.
- Audio Commentary by Malcolm McDowell and Historian Nick Redman [on both 4K and Blu-ray]
- Only on the Blu-ray:
- Malcolm McDowell Looks Back
- Turning like Clockwork
- Channel Four Documentary Still Tickin’: The Return of Clockwork Orange
- Featurette Great Bolshy Yarblockos! Making A Clockwork Orange
- Theatrical Trailer
All “Star Wars” films come to 4K UHD Blu-ray March
The remaining films in the “Star Wars” film franchise – so far – are all coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray on March 31st it seems, via Disney, according to retailer listings. There will first be a very lavish, expensive box set available (seemingly exclusive) at retailer Best Buy called “The Skywalker Saga” (pictured above) which is now available for preorder. That Skywalker Saga set will include Episodes 1-9 of the films, as well as two Blu-ray Disc counterparts for each film, filled with bonus materials – yet to be detailed. Stay tuned for further details regarding this release as it develops.
Now, as of today, there also are most certainly individual releases for Episodes 1-7 coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray on March 31st as well as the film “Rogue One – A Star Wars Story” (2016). It’s certainly worth noting that these titles are now all listed over at retailer Best Buy, individually. So, as you’d expect I’ll be listing the films coming out in theatrical chronological order with direct links to the Best Buy preorder listings – not yet functional but currently placeholder pages. UPDATED: I am now adding Amazon preorder listings to this post as they are getting listed.
