The 1991 film “Terminator 2: Judgment Day“ will officially be getting a 30th-anniversary edition 4K UHD Blu-ray SteelBook release on November 23rd, via Lionsgate, as a retailer exclusive. More on that in a bit. The film, directed & co-written by James Cameron, starred Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Edward Furlong, Earl Boen, Joe Morton, and Robert Patrick.
This new 4K release will be using the 2017 restoration of the film, which was supervised by James Cameron. The official news just came yesterday via a post on Twitter which unveiled some more glimpses of the art (by Tracie Ching and Orlando Arocena). The exact tech specs and bonus materials for the release have not yet been fully detailed, but stay tuned for an update. The release will come in the form of a “combo pack” meaning that the 4K will come with its Blu-ray Disc counterpart and include a digital code (copy) of the film as well. As mentioned, and confirmed by the official tweet, this 4K UHD Blu-ray SteelBook will be an exclusive for retailer Best Buy, and you can now find it available there for preorder. More details on this release as they come in.

Further below, after the break, you can find the full announcement regarding the upcoming home video releases of the film.
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 Salazar, Christoph Waltz, Jennifer 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).
Bonus materials set to be included on the releases run rather lengthy, so you can find them listed further below, after the break, along with the full announcement regarding the upcoming releases of this film.
