Amazon Commissions Earned

The 1997 sequel “Scream 2” seems to be coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray in standard (pictured above) and limited edition “25th anniversary” SteelBook forms on October 4th via Paramount Home Entertainment, according to retailers.  The film, directed by Wes Craven, starred Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox, David Arquette, Jamie Kennedy, Jerry O’Connell, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Joshua Jackson, Timothy Olyphant, Liev Schreiber, Jada Pinkett Smith, Omar Epps, and Heather Graham.

As this title has not yet been officially announced, that I can tell, the tech specs for the 4K releases have not yet been detailed but you can for sure expect a 2160p video presentation with at least HDR10 form of high dynamic range and likely a lossless 5.1 surround sound mix.  The releases will both come in the form of a “combo pack” with a Blu-ray counterpart included as well as a digital code (copy) of the film.  The bonus materials should include all of the previous extras found on the Blu-ray and perhaps some new content, but no word on that yet.  Stay tuned for an update.  In the meantime, you can find the 4K UHD Blu-ray SteelBook (pictured below) available for preorder over at Amazon.  The standard 4K UHD Blu-ray is available for preorder as well over at Amazon but it lacks artwork at the moment.

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.
