We’ve got the details on the Lara Croft Tomb Raider 4k Blu-ray releases

lara-croft-tomb-raider-4k-blu-ray-2up-840pxParamount Home Media has reprinted both original ‘Lara Croft Tomb Raider’ films for release on 4k Ultra HD Blu-ray. The new 4k editions will come just a few weeks before Warner Bros.’ new film Tomb Raider starring Alicia Vikander hits theaters.

Thanks to Paramount we’ve got the details on Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001) and Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life (2003) on Ultra HD Blu-ray, but they aren’t as exciting as you might have liked.

The video on both titles, of course, has been upgraded to 2160p which in itself will add 4-times the pixel resolution as the previously-released 1080p versions. Better yet, each disc contains specifications for HDR using Dolby Vision, allowing further color depth for detail, contrast and luminance.

If you were hoping for an audio upgrade, however, the discs still contain the same DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 English soundtracks found on the original Blu-ray releases. The discs do offer plenty of language options though in Dolby Digital 5.1. The original ‘Tomb Raider’ film includes variations of French and Spanish dialects along with Russian and Portuguese tracks. The second film, ‘The Cradle of Life,’ only offers French and Spanish soundtracks.

As far as bonus content, there is nothing new added from the previous Blu-ray editions but those extras are abundant with deleted scenes, alternate scenes, production featurettes, trailers and more. What’s worth noting is the new Ultra HD Blu-ray editions have been enchanced with audio commentary from both directors Simon West (Lara Croft: Tomb Raider) and Jan de Bont (Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life).

By the way, Best Buy is also releasing exclusive SteelBook editions of both ‘Tomb Raider’ and ‘The Cradle of Life’ but the cover art, disappointingly, is the same as the common editions.

Stay tuned for our giveaway of these 4k Blu-ray releases in the coming weeks.
