There are five Tuesdays in October! That means five new Blu-ray release days this month, and we’ve already counted over two dozen new 4k titles hitting shelves not including retailer exclusives. Have you started your 4k Blu-ray collection yet? Here are some highlights to look forward to followed by a full month’s schedule of new Ultra HD Blu-ray releases.
On Tuesday, Oct. 2, Sicario: Day of the Soldado arrives on disc for the first time in a 2-disc combo edition that includes an Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray and Digital Copy. On the same day, Universal’s The First Purge also premieres on disc in both Blu-ray and 4k Blu-ray formats, as well as previously-released ‘Purge’ titles to Best Buy SteelBook combo editions. And, three of the ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise titles arrive on 4k Blu-ray including The Fast and the Furious (2001), 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003) and The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006).
On Oct. 9, Dwayne Johnson and Neve Campbell star in the blockbuster Skyscraper that will be available for the first time on Blu-ray and 4k Blu-ray as well as in limited retailer editions from Best Buy and Target. On the same day, The Evil Dead (1981) gets a 4k release, as well as Hotel Transylvania 3 (2018), Hotel Artemis (2018), and Hook (1991).
