RUMOR: “The Meg” to be released on 4K Blu-ray and Blu-ray by the end of the year

the_meg_4k
The 2018 Jon Turteltaub directed film “The Meg”, which just hit theaters this weekend, is already slated for December release on 4K UHD Blu-ray, Blu-ray Disc, and even on Blu-ray 3D format in the United Kingdom on retailer Zavvi. Keywords there: in the United Kingdom, not stateside. However, based on this, we can likely expect this film to come out around December here in the United States. The UK release date is December 17th. Stay tuned on what the US release date will be.

At time of writing this, stateside, it does already have a PRE-ORDER listings available over at Amazon for both the 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray Disc versions. The Blu-ray 3D version is lacking a pre-order listing, at this moment.

It appears, looking at the cover art, all the releases will come in the form of a “combo pack” – with the 4K release getting a Blu-ray included, and the Blu-ray releases getting a DVD included. All versions it also appears will include a Digital Copy of the film. No word yet at all on the tech specs or the bonus materials slated for these releases, as this news is just now developing. Stay tuned for any updates.


MAJOR UPDATE: This title has since been announced for United States home video release on both the 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray Disc formats, with no 3D release stateside – as expected. You can find more about this HERE, posted on the site.

Both of The Wachowskis‘ 2003 sequels The Matrix Reloaded” and The Matrix Revolutions starring Keanu Reeves are coming INDIVIDUALLY to 4K UHD Blu-ray on October 2nd via Warner. This news comes in an early alert to retailers, namely Amazon. Tech specs and bonus materials have not yet been detailed, but you can likely expect them to be identical to the first film (already available on 4K). Still, stay tuned for official word on all that. The two films are both available for PRE-ORDER over at Amazon. Click on their titles or artwork above for links.

“The Matrix Trilogy” with Keanu Reeves is coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray in October

the_matrix_trilogy_4k.jpg
The Wachowskis‘ “The Matrix Trilogy” starring Keanu Reeves is coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray on October 2nd via Warner. This news comes in an early alert to retailers. The box set will include the following films:

  • “The Matrix” (1999)
  • “Matrix Reloaded” (2003) – NEW to 4K!
  • “Matrix Revolutions” (2003) – NEW to 4K!

Tech specs and bonus materials have not yet been detailed, but if the first film (already available on 4K) is any indication, I’d say you can expect the two sequels to get Dolby Vision, HDR10 forms of High Dynamic Range and Dolby Atmos sound. This has not yet been announced (rather confirmed). As you’ll notice on the cover art it only states HDR, with no indication of Dolby Vision. However, Warner never indicates that on that part. Just worth pointing out. The Matrix Trilogy on 4K UHD Blu-ray is available now for PRE-ORDER over at Amazon, but not yet at Best Buy. Lastly, be sure to check out our review of the first film, The Matrix (as mentioned) already available on 4K. Stay tuned for official announcements regarding this box set.

UPDATE: These films will be released individually on 4K UHD Blu-ray in both standard and Steelbook packaging. Info about the standard individual releases can be found HERE, and information about the Best Buy Exclusive Steelbooks can be found HERE.

RUMOR: “Superman” 1978 coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray likely stateside by November

superman4k.jpg
The 4K UHD Blu-ray release of the 1978 Richard Donner directed film “Superman”  is starting to seem a lot more like a reality. However, it is still (currently) a RUMOR, so take it “with a grain of salt” so-to-speak, and wait for an official announcement, as I always remind you. The film, starring Christopher Reeve and Margot Kidder, it seems is apparently coming to Germany as a 4K UHD Blu-ray release. It was first reported by a German website as you’ll see translated below.

“Superman”: DC film adaptation of 1978 for the first time on Ultra HD Blu-ray

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is expected to release the Superman adaptation with Christopher Reeve on 4K Blu-ray in early November; Amazon already has the title in its assortment.

It’s not official yet, but according to current planning, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release “Superman” (also known as “Superman: The Movie”) from 1978 on 8 November on Ultra HD Blu-ray. bring out ray. Amazon has already listed the title.

Source: Surround Sound Info

Now, keep in mind that this is a translation to English from German via Google Translate. It does give us an idea of what the specifics are over there in Germany for that release. They seem to have seen a November 8th release date on the Amazon.de listing earlier. The German Amazon listing is still up, HERE, and even states that it is the 1978 film, it is a 4K UHD Blu-ray, and all. It just no longer has that release date (as pictured below).

superman4kgermany

So, with this new information having come to light, I’m going to speculate a bit here, and I’ll say that we can likely expect this to come to 4K UHD Blu-ray stateside by at least November. The film originally hit theaters on December 15th, 1978, so it should be on home video by then to celebrate its 40th Anniversary. Let’s hope Warner decides to finally officially announce the title is in the works, and perhaps give the release date and such as well very soon. Stay tuned for further updates!
