Stephen King’s horror story about a teenage boy’s 1958 Plymouth Fury with supernatural powers was turned into a film by legendary writer/director John Carpenter the same year the book was published. It was 1983, and other horror films such as Videodrone, The Hunger and Cujo (another film based on a King novel), as well at the sci-fi classic Return of the Jedi were also hitting theaters.
Well, none of those films, and no other film from the year 1983, are available yet in on Ultra HD Blu-ray. Christine will be the first, hitting shelves on September 11th celebrating the 35th anniversary of the film’s theatrical release.
On Ultra HD Blu-ray Christine is presented in 2160p with HDR10 for High Dynamic Range color. The English soundtrack is provided in immersive Dolby Atmos audio as well as Dolby TrueHD 7.1 for systems that don’t support Atmos.
There are bonus features, but they were previously released on earlier Blu-ray editions. Those extras will be included on the Blu-ray only, not the 4k Blu-ray.
This is a 2-disc set, so as illustrated in the cover art it above it also includes a Blu-ray Disc and code to redeem a Digital Copy.
