The two films in the ‘Cloverfield’ franchise: Cloverfield (2008) and 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) will soon be available in 4k Ultra HD resolution on Blu-ray Disc. Both movies have previously been released on Blu-ray, but the 4k format will deliver four-times the resolution and deeper color depth with HDR10 on TVs that support the enhancement.
Audio on 10 Cloverfield Lane will be the same as the 2016 Blu-ray release, provided in English Dolby Atmos backed by a Dolby TrueHD 7.1 soundtrack. We don’t have audio specs on Cloverfield yet, but if it stays the same as the Blu-ray release the English audio will be offered in 24-bit Dolby TrueHD 5.1. [Update: Cloverfield audio/video specs are confirmed.]
Both combo editions from Paramount Home Media Distribution include a second disc with a Blu-ray copy, as well as a code for a digital copy that will likely redeem in 4k UHD through UltraViolet partners. The digital copies may also be redeemable with Movies Anywhere, but the new service doesn’t currently support UHD.
A bonus option on Clovefield (the 4k Blu-ray disc) features commentary by Director Matt Reeves. On 10 Cloverfield Lane there’s commentary from Director Dan Trachtenberg and Producer J.J. Abrams.
An interesting tidbit of information about 10 Cloverfield Lane. It was originally developed from a low-budget film script titled The Cellar, but became a follow up to the 2008 film Cloverfield after Paramount Pictures acquired it and turned it over to Bad Robot for production.
