According to retailers, the 2010 film “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” is coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray on July 6th via Universal Studios Home Entertainment. The film, based on the “Scott Pilgrim” graphic novels, was directed by Edgar Wright and starred Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Kieran Culkin, Anna Kendrick, Alison Pill, Aubrey Plaza, Jason Schwartzman, Ellen Wong, Johnny Simmons, Mark Webber, Brie Larson, Mae Whitman, Brandon Routh, and Chris Evans.

The release will come in the form of a “combo pack” meaning that it will include its Blu-ray counterpart and a digital code (copy) of the film.
The 2004 Edgar Wright directed film “Shaun of the Dead“ starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost is getting an individual 4K UHD Blu-ray release on November 5th via Universal, according to an early retailer alert. The film (as previously reported) is slated for a 4K release later this month as part of “The Cornetto Trilogy“box set. However, those who don’t want the two other films will be able to pick this film up later this year. The film co-starred Kate Ashfield, Lucy Davis, Dylan Moran, Nicola Cunningham, Peter Serafinowicz, and Bill Nighy. Tech specs for the 4K release include 2160p video in the 2.35:1 aspect ratio with HDR10 and HDR10+ forms of High Dynamic Range and DTS:X sound. The release will come in the form of a “combo pack” with a Blu-ray and digital code (copy) of the film include. The 4K UHD Blu-ray is now listed as coming soon over at retailer Best Buy. Stay tuned for an update on that and as for when it becomes available over at Amazon, as a functional pre-order. The bonus materials will be identical on this release as found on the previous Blu-ray release.
Lastly, it’s worth noting to Edgar Wright fans that perhaps just want to own the two other films that make this trilogy individually that they’ll also be getting released. You can find 4K UHD Blu-ray individual releases of “Hot Fuzz“ (2007) and “The World’s End“ (2013) both also listed as coming soon now over at retailer Best Buy.
