2022 Scream film comes to 4K and Blu-ray in April

Amazon Commissions Earned

The 2022 sequel “Scream” is officially coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray Disc on April 5th via Paramount Home Entertainment.  The film, directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin & Tyler Gillett, stars Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Melissa Barrera, Jack Quaid, Mikey Madison, Jenna Ortega, Dylan Minnette, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Mason Gooding, Sonia Ammar, and Marley Shelton.

It’s most certainly worth noting that, at the time of publishing, this film is “Certified Fresh” over at Rotten Tomatoes.  I just wish they didn’t have to put a permanent logo on the cover art because of that.

Tech specs for the 4K UHD Blu-ray and the Blu-ray have not yet been detailed.  However, it is worth noting that the digital version of the film [in 4K] features Dolby Vision and HDR10 forms of high dynamic range and 5.1 surround sound.  So, it’s likely those will be the specs for the 4K release and perhaps the Blu-ray will get that 5.1 sound mix.  Both releases will include a digital code (copy) of the film.

You can now find the 4K UHD Blu-ray and the Blu-ray available for preorder over at Amazon.  There will be a Scream 2-Movie Collection available on 4K UHD Blu-ray with the first [1996] film and the most recent [2022] film and that is now available for preorder over at Amazon.

Retailer Best Buy will be getting an exclusive 4K UHD Blu-ray SteelBook which is listed and has some temporary cover art at the moment.  Also, retailer Walmart will be getting a 4K UHD Blu-ray bundle featuring a poster (pictured below) which is now available for preorder.

The bonus materials set to be included with both releases are listed below.

  • Filmmaker Commentary—The directors, writers and filmmakers reveal the unwritten rules for surviving this genre-busting horror movie.
  • Bloodlines—Catch up with Scream stars Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, and David Arquette for a deep dive into their characters and why they came back for a fresh stab at their favorite horror franchise.
  • New Blood—Meet the new generation of Woodsboro victims and potential killers!
  • In the Shadow of the Master—The cast honor movie maestro Wes Craven and look back on his incredible legacy as the director who redefined horror.
  • Deleted Scenes—Look out! They’re back from the dead: see the scenes slashed from the movie.

Further below, after the break, you can find the trailer for the film and the full announcement about the home video releases.

Amazon Commissions Earned

There will be a Rugrats 3-Movie Collection coming to Blu-ray Disc on March 8th via Nickelodeon and Paramount Home Entertainment.  The collection will include the following three films:

  • “The Rugrats Movie” (1998)
  • “Rugrats in Paris” (2000)
  • “Rugrats Go Wild” (2003)

The are no specific tech specs for the films have yet but it will be spanning across a 3-disc set where each film will definitely be presented in 1080p HD video quality and presumably with a lossless sound mix for each film. Also, there have been no bonus materials yet mentioned to be included, but I’ll try to get further from Paramount soon, so stay tuned for a possible update on all of those specifics to the release itself.

NOTE:  This will make the Blu-ray debut for each of these three films, as they’ve never been released on the format before — only on DVD.

Finally, you can find the Blu-ray set is now available for preorder over at Amazon.  I’m not sure why Amazon lists it with a different title but I’m going with what the artwork and the production description (below) suggest.

Product Description

The biggest babies in the entertainment business land on Blu-ray in this remastered collection of their three big-screen, blockbuster adventures. The fun begins with THE RUGRATS MOVIE, based on the popular Nickelodeon series, and featuring an all-star celebrity cast alongside Tommy Pickles and his entire troupe of toddlers. In THE RUGRATS IN PARIS, Chuckie brings his pals to Europe, where they visit the City of Lights for one adventure after another. In the third movie, THE RUGRATS GO WILD, a family vacation takes an exotic detour. As the babies race wildly across the jungle, they soon discover another family on an adventure of their own—the Wild Thornberrys.
