Five New 4k Ultra HD Blu-ray Discs Hit Shelves
Today’s new Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc releases are split between brand new titles and remastered films for 4k TVs, but all five deliver 2160p video resolution, Dolby Atmos audio (improving upon Dolby TrueHD 7.1), and most feature HDR (High Dynamic Range) color. All combo editions also include a redeemable code for a Digital HD copy.
Ghostbusters (2016) is a brand new title to home media that’s available on Ultra HD Blu-ray as well as Blu-ray and DVD. Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has done something different with this film. As you may know it played in 3D theaters, but instead of releasing a separate Blu-ray 3D edition Sony has packaged a 3D disc along with the Ultra HD Blu-ray edition. Ghostbusters also features HDR color and English Dolby Atmos and Dolby TrueHD 7.1 audio. Price: $26.99.
Ice Age: Collision Course has just been released to Blu-ray and Ultra HD Blu-ray, following an early Digital HD date. The 2-disc edition from 20th Century Fox features 4k 2160p video with a Dolby Atmos soundtrack backed by Dolby TrueHD 7.1 audio. Price: $24.99
The Legend of Tarzan (2016) is also brand new to disc. The film, directed by David Yates (Harry Potter), comes in four different editions including Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, Ultra HD Blu-ray, and DVD. The Ultra HD Blu-ray release features 2160p 4k video with HDR specifications, backed by a Dolby Atmos soundtrack. Price: $29.99.
Sony Pictures’ Angels & Demons (2009) and The Da Vinci Code (2006) are both now available on Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc. The new 4k editions anticipate the upcoming theatrical release of Inferno, the next title in the franchise that will star Tom Hanks with Felicity Jones.
