• Devotion Soars to Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray on February 28

    Posted Tue Jan 17, 2023 at 03:20 PM PST by

    JD Dillard's film based on the book by Adam Makos and starring Jonathan Majors and Glen Powell arrives on 4K UHD and Blu-ray on February 28.

    Jonathan Majors (Creed III) and Glen Powell (Top Gun: Maverick) star in the epic and inspirational true story of two elite U.S. Navy fighter pilots who helped turn the tide in the most brutal battle in the Korean War: Jesse Brown, the first Black aviator in Navy history and his fellow fighter pilot and friend, Tom Hudner. Their heroic sacrifices and enduring friendship would ultimately make them the Navy's most celebrated wingmen.

    The press release does not specify video or audio specs, but does mention two bonus features will be included:

    • The Aviation of a Forgotten War
      Take a deep dive into the world of 1950s U.S. Naval aviation and experience the epic aerial action brought to life in Devotion. Meet the actors in real planes used during the Korean War in this incredible behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film.
    • The Legacy of Jesse Brown
      Discover the extraordinary life of Jesse Brown, the first African American Naval Aviator, and explore his personal journey during the Korean War. Hear from the cast and crew as they discuss Jesse's unique and complex story.

  • Help Sony Choose Their New 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Releases

    Posted Thu Aug 13, 2020 at 04:30 AM PDT by

    Want Sony to release Anaconda on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray? - Now's your chance to let them know

    Sony needs your help deciding their next wave of back catalog 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray releases. Just as they did with their Columbia Classics 4k Ultra HD Volume One set, they're requesting fan input for the roster of titles. 

    Take The Survey HERE

    Just like last time, they want fans to request a genuine classic title from the 1930s through the 1950s. Some of the featured classics include:

    • From Here To Eternity
    • Guns of Navarone
    • His Girl Friday
    • You Can't Take It With You
    • On The Water Front
    • All The Kings Men

    ... and many more classics. A number of these already have great Blu-ray releases - several are members of the Criterion Collection - but it'd be nice to see these in native 4K with HDR.

    Next on the survey, they want to know what other titles you'd love to see on the format. This section isn't specifically classics-driven and these aren't entirely intended for the next Columbia Classics collection either. These are the fan favorites voting that influenced Sony to bring out The Mask of Zorro to 4K and other big hits. You can pick three titles here. This part of the survey from last year is also where they got the idea for Jerry Maguire coming to 4K so vote with caution, they take these seriously! Hudson Hawk is on the list - just saying...

    Some of the featured fan favorites include:

    • Anaconda
    • Funny Girl
    • Fright Night
    • The City of Lost Children
    • Night of the Living Dead (1990)
    • Muppets Take Manhattan
    • Tootsie
    • The Lady From Shanghai 
    • Punch Drunk Love

    ... and many many more great titles - and some that raise an eyebrow but hey, every movie has its fan. After that is a comments section where you can make specific requests about their releases - Dolby Vision/HDR10+, audio format, new bonus features for these releases, SteelBook packaging - OR - you can request titles that weren't on the list - I personally requested 7th Voyage of Sinbad and the rest of Ray Harryhausen's extensive catalog from Columbia. I'd love to see those childhood favorites fully restored in 4K with HDR. 

    Given all of the news and recent speculation that Disney may or may not release live-action catalog titles on 4K UHD Blu-ray and Warner Bros. restructuring - this is a good thing. It means Sony is happy with the results from the fist Columbia Classics release as well as their other catalog titles we enjoyed from last year. So don't wait to fill that survey out! Let them know you're down to buy your favorites on the best physical media format available.
