thedoors

The 1991 Oliver Stone directed film The Doors starring Val Kilmer is coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray on July 23rd via Lionsgate, according to an early alert to retailers. The film co-starred Meg Ryan, Kyle MacLachlan, Frank Whaley, Kevin Dillon, Michael Wincott, and Michael Madsen. There are no details yet regarding the tech specs on this 4K release. It is however known that the release will come in the form of a “combo pack” with a Blu-ray and a digital copy of the film. Bonus materials set to be included on the release have not yet been detailed. The title on 4K UHD Blu-ray is now listed as coming soon over at retailer Best Buy. Stay tuned for an update when that becomes a functional pre-order listing as well as artwork, tech specs, and perhaps info regarding if it will include any new bonus materials.

UPDATES: First off, there’s now a listing for a German 4K Steelbook release that seems to be exclusive to that country, and there doesn’t sadly seem to be a 4K Steelbook coming here stateside. So, if you’re wanting to get that as an import, since 4K is, after all, a region free format, you can find it listed here on Amazon Germany. I’ve also included the artwork and a link further below. Next, StudioCanal who Lionsgate will be distributing this for has released a video of the 4K restoration footage from the film which you can find as well further below, after the break.
