Amazon Commissions Earned

The 1982 remake of The Thing is coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray on September 7th, via Universal, according to numerous retailer listings. The film, directed by John Carpenter, starred Kurt Russell, Wilford Brimley, T.K. Carter, Keith David, David Clennon, Richard Dysart, Charles Hallahan, Peter Maloney, Richard Masur, Joel Polis, and Donald Moffat.

The tech specs for the release include a 2160p video presentation in the 2.35:1 aspect ratio with HDR10 form of high dynamic range and DTS:X immersive sound, on a BD-100 disc.

You can now find the 4K UHD Blu-ray available for preorder over at Amazon, as well as listed (but not yet as a functional preorder) over at retailer Best Buy.

And, no, at this time there does not appear to be a 4K SteelBook release planned for this. But, stay tuned for a possible update if one is in fact coming. The bonus materials set to be included with the release are listed below.

  • John Carpenter’s The Thing: Terror Takes Shape
  • Outtakes
  • Feature Audio Commentary with Director John Carpenter And Actor Kurt Russell
  • Theatrical Trailer

Just a reminder, to my knowledge, this release has not yet been officially announced by the studio. Or, perhaps one of the public relations firms forgot to include me in the loop? That being said, consider this still a rumor with a whole lot to back it up at this point. I don’t want to upset the studio (Universal) here, but it’s pretty obvious that this title is coming at this point.

Rick and Morty Seasons 1-4 Blu-ray set available March

Amazon Commissions Earned

The [adult swim] TV series “Rick and Morty: The Complete Seasons 1-4” will be getting a Blu-ray Disc box set release on March 2nd via Warner. The show, created by Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland, features the voice talents of Justin Roiland (as both “Rick” and “Morty”), as well as Chris ParnellSpencer Grammer, Sarah Chalke, Kari Wahlgren, Maurice LaMarche, Dan Harmon, Brandon Johnson, Alan Tudyk, Tom Kenny, and Keith David. The tech specs for the 4-disc set include 1080p HD video in the 1.78:1 aspect ratio and DTS-HD Master 5.1 sound for each season. That’s strange about the audio, as previously all four seasons of the show featured Dolby TrueHD 5.1 sound. So, perhaps that’s a typo? Or they’ve re-encoded the audio?

It’s worth noting that each season of the show will be included as a digital code (copy). There’s not yet a preorder listing available for this Blu-ray Disc set over at Amazon but stay tuned for an update. The bonus materials set to be included with this release will be identical to those featured on each season’s previous Blu-ray releases and can be found detailed further below, after the break, in the full official announcement about the upcoming release.

RUMOR: John Carpenter’s They Live 4K stateside

– Amazon Commissions Earned –

The 1988 John Carpenter film “They Live” might be getting a 4K UHD Blu-ray release stateside soon via Scream Factory (Shout! Factory), according to an early retailer listing. No release date is given but I’m thinking perhaps sometime this year like November or December? Fair warning, this is a RUMOR. So, take this with a grain of salt, but it seems maybe, just maybe, according to a retailer listing that this might be happening. The film is showing up listed over at retailer Target right now as THEY LIVE COLLECTOR’S EDITION (4K UHD/BLU-RAY) as you can see HERE (in case they remove the listing). It lists SHOUT FACTORY as the Movie Studio and Horror as the genre, as you’ll see there. Shout! Factory’s horror line of home video titles is Scream Factory, which has previously released this film on Blu-ray. So, this would be pretty logical, right?

Let’s be realistic here. This could have actually just leaked out a bit early? I’m only speculating here, folks. If it’s true, this could be huge news because the film itself has already been released on the 4K UHD Blu-ray format overseas in the UK back in 2018 and again in 2019 via Studiocanal, as well as in France. In fact, Studiocanal actually did 4K restorations of four John Carpenter films — all of which that Scream Factory currently distributes stateside. Let’s hope this turns out to be true and that more John Carpenter films are heading stateside to the 4K UHD Blu-ray format. Who knows, though? This could be nothing but I, as a huge fan of the director and this film, felt it was worth sharing with the horror community and 4K fans.
