MAJOR UPDATE:

This has now been officially confirmed today by HalloweenMovies.com (official website). The package cover art can be found above and disc art can be found below. It appears the release will get both Dolby Vision and HDR10 varieties of High Dynamic Range, while we only see a Dolby audio logo on the disc. That leaves me thinking it will not receive a Dolby Atmos or DTS: X atmospheric mix, and instead likely a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 or 7.1 mix.

UPDATES: This title is now available for PRE-ORDER over at Amazon and Best Buy.

Below, after the break you can find the disc art and more of my original rumor post about this coming to 4K, which turned out to be true.
