The 2022 sequel “Halloween Ends” is officially coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray Disc on December 27th via Universal Studios Home Entertainment. The film, directed by David Gordon Green, stars Jamie Lee Curtis, Andi Matichak, Rohan Campbell, Will Patton, Kyle Richards, and James Jude Courtney. This marks the conclusion, as the title suggests, to the “Halloween” film franchise and the story involving the “Laurie Strode” and “Michael Myers” characters.
The tech specs for the 4K UHD Blu-ray include a 2160p video presentation in the 2.39.1 aspect ratio with HDR10 and Dolby Vision forms of high dynamic range and Dolby Atmos sound on a BD-100 disc. Tech specs for the Blu-ray include a 1080p HD video presentation in a 2.39.1 aspect ratio with Dolby Atmos sound on a BD-50 disc. Both releases will come in the form of a “combo pack” meaning the 4K will get its Blu-ray counterpart and the Blu-ray release will get its DVD counterpart with each including a digital code (compatible with Movies Anywhere) of the film.
The bonus materials set to be included with both the 4K and Blu-ray versions of the film are listed below.

Finally, there’s an official trailer for the upcoming 4K release now available. You would think that any intelligent home video distributor would realize that YouTube allows you to actually upload 4K video, and has for many years now, so you could show the fans what to fully expect of the video quality, would you not? Well, the folks at Lionsgate aren’t apparently the most tech savvy, it seems, as they figured 1080p would be just fine to advertise a 4K title. Pretty damn ignorant, wouldn’t you agree? Regardless, you can find the poorly thought out NON-4K trailer for a 4K release below.
