Well, this is a pleasant surprise! Ever since Apple updated their digital offering of Tod Browning's classic Dracula starring Bela Lugosi, we knew something was coming from Universal - but we didn't expect this!

We get the classic films in Digibook packaging with the legacy extra features on top of each film in 4K and 1080p. The press release didn't stipulate HDR grade but we're suspecting only HDR10.

The End Of Summer Is Nigh! - August 2021 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Release Guide

Summer is usually a fun mixture of soaking in new films at the theater while eagerly anticipating a stacked home video release slate for the fall. The ongoing Covid pandemic has kinda upended that tradition. Theaters are back open, but the release window for films is even shorter so when we used to get a little time to catch our breath in August, the studios and boutique labels are throwing some heavy hitters at us. From your favorite shape-shifting vehicles to an inept bodyguard to an epic science fiction box office bomb - there's some great stuff out there to gather up for your ever-growing collection. 

August 2021 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Release Guide

Notable Imports We Hope To Review

Imports are a tad tricky. Subject to shipping limitations, we don't often get to jump on these when they come out. While the U.K. and France aren't getting anything particularly unique or special in the 4K department, Germany is getting a trio of great titles from Capelight Pictures. 

Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Mediabook 

 

Lady Vengeance 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Mediabook 

 

Lord of War 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray SteelBook 

 


That's about it for August. Now more could be announced in the coming days and one or a few of these could be delayed, that sadly does happen. If anything changes with these titles we'll update their respective listings and amend this guide. While this is a busy month - September is going to be grueling. 

Hope this is helpful! Thanks again for all of your pre-orders, it really helps make a difference ensuring we can keep this goofy website going for as long as possible. 

Marvel's Black Widow coming to Blu-ray & 4K UHD Blu-ray

Scarlett Johansson's Final Tour as Black Widow Arrives on Disc September 14th

Marvel's big return to theaters after a prolonged delay due to the ongoing global pandemic Black Widow hits 1080p Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray on September 14th with an early Digital streaming release on August 10th. Ever since her first appearance in Iron Man 2, Johansson has embodied Natashia Romanoff as a supporting character or part of a team ensemble. Now in her own solo adventure, she must face the secrets of her dark past alongside the family she left behind long ago. 

The 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray gets a full Dolby Atmos track with the standard Blu-ray arriving with a DTS-HD MA 7.1 mix. The press release didn't mention anything about which HDR grade the 4K disc will receive but if past is prologue then it'll probably be HDR10 with the Dolby Vision HDR saved for the streaming presentation. Bonus features will include bloopers, deleted scenes, and a smattering of making-of featurettes. 

As of this writing, neither the Blu-ray or the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray are up for pre-order but we expect online retailers to handle that shortly. So far no retailer exclusives have been formally announced, but we expect Zavvi and Best Buy to have something on deck. No word if Target will do one of their Book-style sets or not. As we get those details we'll update this post with listings and pricing info. 

Take a look at the full press release:


LOS ANGELES, CA (July 26, 2021) – Marvel Studios’ Black Widow arrives early on all major digital platforms on August 10 and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD on September 14. Black Widow fans can enjoy the film in stunning Ultra HD quality and immersive Dolby Atmos audio along with never-before-seen bonus footage, including nine deleted scenes, bloopers and featurettes.

Star Trek Beaming Up A Whole Crew Of 4K & Blu-ray Sept 7th, 2021

May Physical Media Live Long And Prosper 

[Update 2:30 EST] - the Star Trek: The Original 4-Movie Collection 4K UHD Blu-ray set is now up for Pre-order. 

It's time to crack open that bottle of Romulan Ale! After years of quiet teases and rumors on top of a failed celebration of the series 50th Anniversary, Paramount Home Entertainment beamed aboard a massive consignment of Star Trek news. Celebrating the 55th Anniversary of the Original Series, Paramount has officially announced the original cast crew will be going where no original cast crew has gone before - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray!  

Star Trek: The Original 4-Movie Collection 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray

Star Trek 1-4 4K UHD 

All of this was late-breaking news from Paramount and StarTrek.com. After years of rumors, a digital-only release of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan on 4K, this is finally official. All of this broke late last evening. With a number of online retailers jumping the gun with their product listings and posting official artwork only to have said listings pulled, it's great to get official confirmation that this is all really happening! The box set is going to be an 8-Disc 4K UHD + Blu-ray + Digital set with each format getting it's own case - think of how Fox/MGM did the Daniel Craig Bond set a couple years ago. 

Now for reasons unknown, this set is for only the first four films - V and VI are not included here. We can only speculate as to the reason why, but it's likely Paramount being cautious with their releases of Trek after fans largely shied away from the Star Trek: The Next Generation individual seasons on Blu-ray. They printed a lot of discs that did not sell, so I don't blame them for being cautious.

The good news is each disc (including the Blu-rays) is sourced from new restorations. The 4K UHD discs will offer up Dolby Vision and HDR10. There's a rumor that each film will get an Atmos audio mix as well, but that hasn't been pinned down 100% yet. 

Here's what's going to be in the package:

As of this writing, this set is not up for pre-order yet and we don't know if there'll be any kind of retailer exclusives yet, but as soon as we know more, we'll update our listings accordingly

But Wait There's More Star Trek!

What 55th Anniversary celebration of the crew of the Enterprise would be complete without a new release of Star Trek: The Complete Original Series? Sadly these are not in 4K - although wouldn't that be something! Instead, Paramount Home Entertainment is repackaging the existing discs in a fancy SteelBook set - each season gets its own SteelBook. Now if you already own the set, this may be a bit pricy to simply upgrade your packaging, but - it looks pretty slick and if you haven't already picked it up, it's an attractive bundle.

Star Trek: The Complete Original Series SteelBook

  

But Wait, That's Not All The Star Trek! 

Yes, I'm aware I'm starting to sound like Billy Mays, but there's A LOT to cover here. Not only will we be getting the first four films in 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, but Paramount has confirmed they have greenlit the complete restoration of Robert Wise's Star Trek: The Motion Picture Director's Edition to 4K Ultra HD with Dolby Vision (and HDR10)! The reason this isn't in this set is simple - all of the additional VFX work done for the old DVD sets was completed in SD - I've heard HD by some but either way not at a resolution that was appropriate for 1080p Blu-ray let alone for 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray. This is going to be a 6-8 month restoration project so it's nice to hear that Paramount isn't shortchanging it. Supposedly there's going to be some theatrical screenings of this restoration along with an exclusive release window on Paramount+. This project was JUST announced yesterday as well so no release date disc or otherwise has been hinted. But a late Spring early Summer 2022 appearance is likely. 

And that is all the news that's fit to reprint. Again I'm like most of you and would have loved to get a complete Original Cast 1-6 4K UHD Blu-ray Boxset, but at the same time - I'm willing to take what I can get. The current state of the home media business is a numbers game; if you don't buy it, they won't make it. Obviously, we want high-quality A/V presentations, that goes without saying, but at this point we can't get too stuck on the packaging or artwork quibbles. If buying this 1-4 set now means I'll get V and VI later with Generations and the TNG films in 4K later - I'm all in. 

Halloween 1-5 Stabbing 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray from Scream Factory Oct. 5th

Just when you thought your Halloween collection was safe...

[Updated 7/28] - these five films have now been pushed back to October 5th

We figured these movies would be coming to 4K eventually, but we didn't expect them to stack up all of a sudden like this! Scream Factory is getting Michael Myers fans pumped for Halloween Kills by unleashing HalloweenHalloween IIHalloween III: The Season of the WitchHalloween IV: The Return of Michael Myers, AND Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers to 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray on  September 28th, October, 5th 2021. 

Now, you may be asking yourself, "Why do I need to buy Halloween again on 4K Ultra HD? I already have it." Well, there's the ticket - HalloweenHalloween IIHalloween III: The Season of the Witch are each getting new 2021 4K scans approved by cinematographer Dean Cundy, plus every film will offer Dolby Vision HDR, Dolby Atmos audio, and each set comes with a remastered Blu-ray sourced from new 2021 scans of the original camera negative. 

   Halloween II Halloween III 

Halloween IV   Halloween 5 


The good news about all of these, it looks like Scream Factory is including all of the excellent bonus features of their long out of print complete (at the time) collection set. The only downside of these releases is there isn't a box set bundle option for all 5 films. Scream Factory is offering some interesting swag options with vinyl soundtracks and pins, and posters. So there is that option too.  Also due to rights issues, all of the Dimension Films owned films, Halloween 6, H20, and Rob Zombie's Halloween and Halloween II aren't included or getting any kind of 4K update (at the moment). Those are in a release right quagmire and I imagine would be quite the ordeal to untangle.  

Below are all of the specs per the press release from Scream Factory. What do you think? Is this worth it, or are you going to pass. 

Here is the complete press release from Scream Factory

Hot Summer 4K UHD Glory - July 2021 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Release Guide

As we melt from the record-breaking temperatures across the country, retreating into the cool loving embrace of our air-conditioned screening rooms is more and more appealing.

From old childhood 90s classics to deep-cut fan favorites, there's something for everyone this month!

July 2021 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Release Guide

Import 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Titles

There's always interesting titles coming out overseas and we do our best to cover them. The U.K. is getting a number of greats including most of the solo Columbia Classics 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Vol 1 titles as well as Looper in 4K from Sony. We'll do our best to get a hold of those, but we'll absolutely be covering True Romance and Ran. As new titles are announced we'll be jumping on those too. 

True Romance Limited Edition 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray 

 

Ran 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray 

 


That's it for July. Now, most of these street dates are tentative so changes can happen. If any title gets rescheduled we'll update our listings and this guide accordingly. 

A Whole Mess of Zack Snyder's Justice League 4K UHD Coming Sept 7

Can You Have Too Much Zack Snyder's Justice League 4K UHD?

This week we learned that Zack Snyder's Justice League 4K UHD Blu-ray was finally coming out in the U.S. on September 7th after already being available the world over for months. The U.S. will be getting a 4-Disc set, two 4K UHD discs with two 1080p Blu-rays. Sadly there's no difference in bonus features so no Zack Snyder audio commentary and no "Justice Is Gray" Black and White version of the movie that was featured on HBOMax. Unsurprisingly Best Buy is now getting the same SteelBook (again 4-discs) but now Amazon has a listing for a Zack Snyder's Justice League Trilogy 8-Disc set coming September 7th as well. 


Zack Snyder's Justice League 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray  

Beyond trying to keep HBOMax subscribers, we can't figure why it's taken this long for Zack Snyder's Justice League to come to 4K UHD Blu-ray stateside. Now that it's on its way, we're basically getting the same set of discs that's already available all over Europe that many of us have already imported. No audio commentary. No Justice Is Gray edition. So if you've imported already, you're all set.

 

 

Zack Snyder's Justice League 4K UHD Best Buy SteelBook  

Again, if you were lucky enough to order from HMV in the UK or import it from France, this is the same set of discs with the same packaging. Some territories only got the two 4K UHD discs, others got all four - Best Buy is giving everyone the 4-Disc package.

 

 

Zack Snyder's Justice League Trilogy 4K UHD Blu-ray Set  

Now here's where things get interesting. This is apparently an 8-Disc set featuring Man of Steel, the remastered Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Zack Snyder's Justice League all in one convenient package. Unfortunately not to dash the hopes that this is the definitive deluxe set folks have been hoping for, but the number of discs reported in the Amazon listing suggests these are simply the same discs already available repackaged. We haven't gotten a full press release about this set yet, so that could change. If you haven't picked any of these up yet, this looks to be a nice convenient way to do that. This isn't available for pre-order yet, but it should be soon.

 

 


And that's all the news that's fit to print at this time. As we hear more we'll report on it ASAP and update listings accordingly.
