Amazon Commissions Earned

The 2021 HBO Max original “Zack Snyder’s Justice League” will officially finally be coming stateside to both 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray on September 7th, via Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. The film, also known as the “Snyder Cut” was directed by Zack Snyder, featured a cast of Henry CavillBen AffleckGal Gadot, Amy Adams, Ray Fisher, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Jesse Eisenberg, Willem Dafoe, Jeremy Irons, J.K. Simmons, Connie Nielsen, Diane Lane, Amber Heard, Joe Manganiello, Ray Porter, Harry Lennix, and Jared Leto.

MAJOR UPDATES:

The tech specs for the 4K UHD Blu-ray include a 2160p 4K video presentation in the 1.33:1 aspect ratio with HDR10 form of high dynamic range and Dolby Atmos sound spanning across 2-discs for part 1 and part 2. The release will come in the form of a “combo pack” with its Blu-ray Disc counterparts in 1080p HD with the same Dolby Atmos sound mix, also in a 2-disc set with 2 parts — for a total of 4 discs for the 4K set and 2 discs for the Blu-ray. No digital copy of the film will be included. Sadly, the “Justice is Gray” Black & White version of the film will not be included in either version of this release. The only bonus material set to be included with the releases will be the following feature:

  • “Road to Justice League” Director Zack Snyder reflects on his trilogy of films in the DC Universe.

You can now find the 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray of Zack Snyder’s Justice League available for preorder over at Amazon. Don’t worry about the higher MSRP prices, as these will drop soon enough, and Amazon offers a preorder price guarantee. So, you’ll only be charged before it ships the amount that it is at on release day.

There will be a 4K UHD Blu-ray SteelBook release available for the film (pictured below), perhaps as an exclusive, over at retailer Best Buy where it’s now listed for preorder with the same (September 7th) release date. There also will be a box set coming to both 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray called Zack Snyder’s Justice League Trilogy (also pictured below) that has appeared on some retailers. That set will include “Man of Steel” (2013), “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (Ultimate Edition)” (2016) [likely Remastered], and finally “Zack Snyder’s Justice League” (2021). The studio [Warner] has confirmed to me that the trilogy set is indeed coming but they have no full details yet regarding it, at this time. There’s also no preorder officially yet for that set yet but stay tuned for any further updates.

RUMOR: “Requiem for a Dream” on 4K in May

requiem_for_a_dream_4k_rumor

Rumor has it that the 2000 Darren Aronofsky film Requiem for a Dream is coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray on May 12th, via Lionsgate, according to multiple retailers. The film,  based on the novel written by Hubert Selby Jr. & nominated for an Academy Award (Oscar), starred Ellen BurstynJared LetoJennifer Connelly, and Marlon Wayans. Tech specs for the release seem to actually already be known (according to online retailer HD Movie Source), with 4K video in the original intended 1.85:1 aspect ratio with HDR10 form of High Dynamic Range and DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 sound on a BD-66 (66-gigabyte disc). The release appears to also be a 2-disc set making it a “combo pack” with a Blu-ray Disc also included along with the previous bonus materials from the “Director’s Cut” released in 2009. This should likely be the director’s cut of the film, as it’s listed as UNRATED, and there’s no word yet if it will include a digital code (copy) of the film until it gets some cover artwork and/or officially announced. Currently, there’s no preorder listing for the film available over at Amazon but stay tuned for an update on that. However, you can find the 4K UHD Blu-ray already listed for preorder, with the 5/12 release date, over at retailer Target and the online retailer mentioned above as well as over at Deep Discount. So that’s three sources I’ve found pointing that this is slated to be coming out on the date mentioned and likely with the tech specs discussed above as well. We shall soon see.

EDITOR NOTE: Now, as always I want to emphasize that this is what I would still consider a “rumor” until it gets officially announced (confirmed). So, take it with a slight grain of salt and sorry Lionsgate, I’m just reporting the news here. Stumbling across a scoop and not going with it is crazy for such a cult-classic like this. Once again, stay tuned.
