The first three films in the “X-Men” film franchise will be getting released in the form of the “X-Men 3-Film Collection“ on the 4K UHD Blu-ray format on September 25th via Fox, according to retailer listings. The title has not yet officially been announced by the studio, so we don’t have any specific tech specs to go on here. It’s worth noting that this joins the three latter “X-Men” films already available on the format, also released bundled together, but also separately. No word yet on if these will receive individual releases, like the latter films, anytime soon or not.
The release will be a 6-disc “combo pack” with the Blu-ray Discs of the three films also included, along with a Digital Copy of each film. The three films included in this set are “X-Men” (2000), “X2: X-Men United” (2003) – both directed by Bryan Singer – and “X-Men: The Last Stand” (2006) directed by Brett Ratner. The 4K set is now available for PRE-ORDER over at Amazon. UPDATE: This title is now available for PRE-ORDER also over at Best Buy, again with the cover art I originally featured.
EDITORIAL NOTE: The artwork (pictured above) comes from UK retailer HMV, and is of the UK version. However, it could be what we see here stateside. [CONFIRMED]
1979 Ridley Scott directed Sci-Fi classic “Alien” may come to 4K UHD Blu-ray early next year, according to fansite AvP Galaxy, which reports that a Czech retailer (FilmArena) has a listing already up for the film in a 4K UHD Blu-ray release, which I’ve confirmed, and you can see HERE for yourself. The release date that is listed over there is January 5th. However, that fansite is reporting that you can see this come out sometime around, or specifically April 26th 2019 – Alien Day. Regardless of which month next year it will be coming out, the film coming to 4K next year would definitely make sense, as in 2019 the film will be celebrating its 40th anniversary. So far, no retailers in the United States are listing the title on 4K for pre-order, yet. As with all RUMOR posts, take this with a “grain of salt” so-to-speak, and wait for an official announcement from the studio (Fox). Lastly, I’d like to give credit to our friends over at Bloody-Disgusting for first reporting this. Stay tuned for any further developments on this possible upcoming 4K release.
UPDATE: Amazon has posted what would seem to be the official cover art, pictured above, on the PRE-ORDER page.
According to an early alert to retailers it would seem that Fox plans to bring the 2018 Broken Lizard film “Super Troopers 2” to Blu-ray Disc on July 17th. This comes from the pre-order listing over on Best Buy. The title is also available for PRE-ORDER over at Amazon, which now features the same release date. CONFIRMED!
No word yet regarding tech specs or bonus material, just that it will be a “combo pack” – including both Blu-ray Disc, DVD as well as a Digital Copy of the film. Also, sadly it would appear there are NO plans for a 4K UHD Blu-ray release of the film, as it was shot at only 2.8K resolution, plus it didn’t do too well at the box office or with critics. On that note though, I personally, I actually saw the film and liked it.
Also the boys have posted a video promoting the release, discussing what all it will feature in terms of bonus materials. The video can be found below (after the break), via Twitter.
