The Big Lebowski 20th Anniversary Limited Edition set, slated for an October 16th release, is now available for PRE-ORDER over at Amazon – priced more affordably than you’d expect.

RUMOR UPDATE: “The Big Lebowski” is coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray in October

biglebowski4k.jpg

OK, I had reported a rumor to you folks back in July discussing there was a listing for the 1998 Coen Brothers film “The Big Lebowski” coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray possibly later this year in the United States. That was because of a listing found over on the Italian Amazon for a gift set. That rumor has now turned into pretty much being a reality, minus the official announcement from the studio (Universal). We now can find two listings on the American Amazon website, that both appear to be the 4K release. The release date for this “20th Anniversary Edition” is slated for October 16th.

The two versions available for PRE-ORDER over at Amazon most likely are the standard 4K UHD Blu-ray release and a 4K UHD Blu-ray gift set release, as we saw Italy was getting.

UPDATE: Tech specs for the 4K release include 2160p with HDR10 form of High Dynamic Range (HDR) and DTS:X immersive sound.

It would appear the bonus materials will just be the original Blu-ray Disc contents, as listed on Amazon’s product description. Stay tuned for further updates, as new information comes to light. Below, after the break, you can find an image of the box set shown over on the Italian Amazon page.
