Amazon Commissions Earned

The 1975 film “Rollerball” is coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray on November 22nd via Scream Factory (Shout! Factory).  The film, directed by Norman Jewison, starred James Caan, John Houseman, John Beck, Moses Gunn, Maud Adams, Pamela Hensley, and Barbara Trentham.

The tech specs for the release have not yet been detailed but you can expect a 2160p video presentation in the 1.85:1 aspect ratio with presumably [at least] HDR10 form of high dynamic range.  No specifics, again on tech specs, but I’d say this will include lossless audio for sure, likely in 5.1 and 2.0 configurations.  It’s already known, and most worth certainly noting, that this will be a 4K UHD Blu-ray Disc release only, with no Blu-ray included.

You can now find the 4K UHD Blu-ray available for preorder over at Amazon.  You also can find the 4K UHD Blu-ray available for preorder directly via the ShoutFactory.com website with an exclusive bonus poster included, while supplies last.  No word yet on the bonus materials set to be included with this release, as it states they’re in progress, but stay tuned for an update.
