1979 Ridley Scott directed Sci-Fi classic “Alien” may come to 4K UHD Blu-ray early next year, according to fansite AvP Galaxy, which reports that a Czech retailer (FilmArena) has a listing already up for the film in a 4K UHD Blu-ray release, which I’ve confirmed, and you can see HERE for yourself. The release date that is listed over there is January 5th. However, that fansite is reporting that you can see this come out sometime around, or specifically April 26th 2019 – Alien Day. Regardless of which month next year it will be coming out, the film coming to 4K next year would definitely make sense, as in 2019 the film will be celebrating its 40th anniversary. So far, no retailers in the United States are listing the title on 4K for pre-order, yet. As with all RUMOR posts, take this with a “grain of salt” so-to-speak, and wait for an official announcement from the studio (Fox). Lastly, I’d like to give credit to our friends over at Bloody-Disgusting for first reporting this. Stay tuned for any further developments on this possible upcoming 4K release.
The 2010 Ridley Scott directed film adaptation of “Robin Hood” starring Russell Crowe is coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray on September 11th via Universal.
