The Batman swoops onto 4K and Blu-ray in May

Amazon Commissions Earned

The 2022 film “The Batman” is officially coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray Disc on May 24th via Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.  The film, directed by Matt Reeves, stars Robert Pattinson, Paul DanoZoë Kravitz, Colin Farrell, Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro, and Andy Serkis.  It’s most certainly worth noting that, at the time of writing this, the film is “Certified Fresh” over at Rotten Tomatoes.

UPDATE #1: The release has just been officially announced by Warner and a press release has been issued.  Tech specs for the 4K UHD Blu-ray to include a 2160p video presentation in the 2.39:1 aspect ratio with HDR10 and Dolby Vision forms of high dynamic range and Dolby Atmos sound.  The tech specs for the Blu-ray include a 1080p HD video presentation in a 2.39:1 aspect ratio with Dolby Atmos sound.

Both releases will come in the form of a “combo pack” meaning that the 4K UHD Blu-ray will get its Blu-ray counterpart, the Blu-ray will get its DVD counterpart, and each will include a digital code (copy) of the film.

UPDATE #2:  You can now find the 4K UHD Blu-ray and the Blu-ray both available for preorder over at Amazon, where you’ll also see the rear cover artwork for each.

Also, you can find the 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray available for preorder over at retailer Best Buy.  The 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray are both now listed over at retailer Walmart, as well.  And retailer Target has the 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray available for preorder.

Speaking of retailers, now, let me cover all the retailer exclusives coming for this film.  First off, Target lists that they’ll have a Blu-ray exclusive but the artwork appears to be the same, so I’m not sure what is unique about that version. However, rumor has it, it is said to include an exclusive 15-minute featurette and alternate artwork.

Next, retailer Walmart will be getting an exclusive 4K UHD Blu-ray Giftset (pictured below) which is now available for preorder.  It does appear to include a 3rd disc (a Blu-ray) which could mean that it features some additional extras? We shall see.

“The Batman Walmart Exclusive 4K Giftset in a Batarang-themed box set. The Limited Edition Exclusive Giftset includes 2022 The Batman movie on 4K, Blu-ray, and digital copy. The giftset also includes a displayable metal faceplate featuring unique batarang art, a stand for display, and collectible packaging.”

And it’s most definitely worth mentioning that there will be an exclusive 4K UHD Blu-ray SteelBook available for the film over at retailer Best Buy (pictured below) where you can find it now as a functional preorder.  Act fast, while those last, as they’re sure to sell out.

I’ll be updating this space throughout the day(s) with more links.  The bonus materials set to be included on both the 4K and Blu-ray releases are listed below.

  • Vengeance In The Making
  • Vengeance Meets Justice
  • The Batman: Genesis
  • Becoming Catwoman
  • Looking for Vengeance
  • Anatomy of The Car Chase

2022 Scream film comes to 4K and Blu-ray in April

Amazon Commissions Earned

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.
  • New Blood—Meet the new generation of Woodsboro victims and potential killers!
  • In the Shadow of the Master—The cast honor movie maestro Wes Craven and look back on his incredible legacy as the director who redefined horror.
  • Deleted Scenes—Look out! They’re back from the dead: see the scenes slashed from the movie.
