A “Resident Evil Limited Edition 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Collection“ is headed to the 4K UHD Blu-ray format in a box set on November 17th, via Sony, according to retailers and even the studio. In fact, I’m awaiting a full press release officially announcing the set later tomorrow. For now, let’s discuss what all will be included. You will get all six of the films in the live-action “Resident Evil” franchise, starring Milla Jovovich. Those films include:
“Resident Evil” (2002), “Resident Evil: Apocalypse” (2004), “Resident Evil: Extinction” (2007), “Resident Evil: Afterlife” (2010), “Resident Evil: Retribution” (2012), and “Resident Evil: The Final Chapter” (2016).
This set comes in the form of a “combo pack” meaning that it will include the Blu-ray Disc counterparts of each film as well as digital codes (copies) for the six films. You can find the Limited Edition Collection 4K set already available for preorder over at Amazon.
UPDATE: the set has now been officially announced. Regarding the tech specs: “All films presented at 2160p Ultra High Definition resolution with HDR 10 and Dolby Atmos immersive audio + DTS-HD MA 5.1 original theatrical audio tracks (DTS-HD MA 7.1 for RESIDENT EVIL: THE FINAL CHAPTER); aspect ratios vary.” Lastly, you can now find the full details below, after the break.
