alita_battle_angel_4k

The 2019 film “Alita: Battle Angel” is coming to both 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray Disc on July 23rd via Fox. The film, directed by Robert Rodriguez and produced by James Cameron, features a cast of Rosa SalazarChristoph WaltzJennifer Connelly, Mahershala Ali, and Jackie Earle Haley.

The tech specs for the 4K release include 2160p video in the 2.39:1 aspect ratio with Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HDR10+ forms of High Dynamic Range and Dolby Atmos sound. Tech specs for the Blu-ray (and the Blu-ray 3D) include 1080p video in the 2.39:1 aspect ratio with DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 sound. I repeat, the Blu-ray 3D will only get DTS-HD MA 7.1 audio on it instead of the Dolby Atmos found on the 4K, which is a tad bit disappointing to some of my readers, including even myself. The 4K release will come with a Blu-ray 3D of the film (as seen on the cover art, above). The two releases will come in the form of a “combo pack” with the 4K getting both Blu-ray 3D and Blu-ray, the Blu-ray will get a DVD, and a digital copy of the film will be present on both. The 4K UHD Blu-ray and the Blu-ray are both available for pre-order now over at Amazon and at Best Buy. There will be a 4K Steelbook Exclusive to retailer Best Buy which is now available for pre-order (pictured below).
