The 2000 film “Wonder Boys” starring Michael Douglas is officially coming to Blu-ray Disc, for the very first time, on November 24th via Paramount. The film, directed by Curtis Hanson, co-starred Tobey Maguire, Frances McDormand, Robert Downey Jr., Katie Holmes, and the late Rip Torn. The tech specs for the Blu-ray include a 1080p HD presentation in the original 2.35:1 aspect ratio and DTS-HD Master Audio 5.0 sound. This last bit, regarding the sound configuration, comes as an improvement over the previous 2000 DVD which only contained a Dolby Digital 5.0 sound mix, oddly enough. Yes, this never has received a 5.1 surround mix with the subwoofer channel. That’s not a misprint or typo. You can now find this Blu-ray available for preorder over at Amazon. The release will include the following bonus materials, ported over from the previously mentioned DVD:
- Cast & Crew Interviews
- Songs of Wonder Boys with Commentary by Curtis Hanson
- “Things Have Changed” Bob Dylan Music Video
It should be noted that this release will come in the form of a MOD (manufactured-on-demand) BD-ROM Blu-ray Disc if you order it via Amazon. However, if you find this on store shelves elsewhere or online elsewhere, it will be a pressed Blu-ray Disc. I was given this heads-up regarding the release. You can find a quote regarding that below.
“It’s a BD-ROM now on Amazon MOD and pressed everywhere else.”
The Guy Ritchie directed films “Sherlock Holmes” (2009) and “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” (2011) starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law are both coming to the 4K UHD Blu-ray format on September 1st, via Warner, according to retailers. Neither the tech specs and bonus materials for each release have yet been detailed, but stay tuned for an update on that. It is however known (from the art) that the releases will both come in the form of “combo pack” meaning they’ll both get their Blu-ray counterpart included as well as a digital copy of the film. Right now you can find both films on 4K UHD Blu-ray listed for preorder over at retailer Best Buy. You can also find just the first film on 4K available for preorder over at retailer Target. Lastly, you cannot yet find these films for available preorder over at Amazon but stay tuned for a definite update on that.
