• Adaptation. Announced and Detailed for 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray on December 6

    Posted Tue Oct 18, 2022 at 02:16 PM PDT by

    Celebrate the 20th anniversary of Spike Jonze's comedy starring Nicolas Cage, Meryl Streep and Chris Cooper, newly remastered in 4K resolution from the original camera negative and with Dolby Vision on December 6.

    Director Spike Jonze delivers a stunningly original comedy that seamlessly blends fictional characters and situations with the lives of real people: obsessive orchid hunter John Laroche (Chris Cooper, in an Academy Award®-winning performance, 2002, Best Supporting Actor), New Yorker journalist Susan Orlean (Meryl Streep), Hollywood screenwriter Charlie Kaufman (Nicolas Cage), and his twin brother, Donald (also Cage). As Charlie struggles to adapt Orlean's best-selling book "The Orchid Thief," he writes himself into his own movie. The various stories crash into one another, exploding into a wildly imaginative film. ADAPTATION is at once a hilarious drama and a moving comedy, now celebrating its 20th anniversary.

    As per the course with Sony as of late, the 4K UHD Blu-ray edition doesn't include a standard Blu-ray, but it does have a Digital Copy. The release features Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos, and a legacy featurette and theatrical trailer.
