The 1987 film “Dirty Dancing” will be getting an exclusive4K UHD Blu-ray SteelBook release over at retailer Best Buy on April 27th, via Lionsgate. First off, let me state that this will mark the 4K physical debut of the film and it (as mentioned) will be exclusive to only that retailer and that no “standard” release on 4K UHD Blu-ray is at this time planned — it would seem. The film, directed by Emile Ardolino, starred Patrick Swayze, Jennifer Grey, Jerry Orbach, Cynthia Rhodes, Jack Weston, Jane Brucker, and Kelly Bishop. The tech specs for the 4K release have yet to be officially detailed by the studio (Lionsgate) but stay tuned for an update on that.
You can find the 4K UHD Blu-ray SteelBook available for preorder over at Best Buy, where it as of today states “[Only @ Best Buy]” in its description — confirming its exclusivity to that retailer. There’s also no word yet on the bonus materials set to be included with the release, but it is known (from the artwork, pictured here) that the release will come in the form of a “combo pack” meaning that it will include its Blu-ray Disc counterpart and a digital code (copy) of the film. Once again, stay tuned to this post for any further updates regarding this release and the debut of this film to the 4K UHD Blu-ray format.
