• Michael Mann's Heat Dated & Detailed on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray August 9th - Now Up For Pre-Order!

    Posted Wed Jun 8, 2022 at 09:26 AM PDT by

    At long last, Michael Mann's iconic crime saga comes to 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray with a new sequel novel on August 9th, 2022

    Al Pacino and Robert De Niro dually power the momentum and large scale of this groundbreaking film written and directed by Michael Mann. In the wake of a precision heist of an armored truck, an obsessive detective (Pacino) begins to hunt ruthless, professional thief Neil McCauley (De Niro) through the streets of Los Angeles. As the stakes escalate, their lives begin to mirror and unravel, and McCauley’s crew initiates its most dangerous and complex heist. Co-starring Val Kilmer, Tom Sizemore, Ashley Judd, Amy Brenneman, Diane Venora, Natalie Portman, and Jon Voight, Heat delivers hard-hitting action, gripping suspense, and stunning performances.

    The 4K UHD Blu-ray edition does not appear to include Dolby Atmos and all of the supplements seem to be previously released features from the Blu-ray.

    However, on August 9, Heat 2 -- Michael Mann's first novel -- will be published telling "an original story woven from the lives of the characters in Heat, both before and after the events depicted in the movie."
