UPDATE: Now Bill is indicating that retailers are showing a December 4th release date. Stay tuned for any further updates. Namely something official.

The PRE-ORDER listings are already up even though the film just hit theaters just late this week. The film has a “Certified Fresh” rating (with 97%) over at Rotten Tomatoes. PRE-ORDER listings (as mentioned) for the 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray Disc release are live now over at Amazon.
