Peter Jackson’s ‘King Kong’ will release to 4k Blu-ray SteelBook Edition

king-kong-steelbook-zavvi-open-960px Peter Jackson’s King Kong (2005) was upgraded and released to 4k Blu-ray a couple years ago, but Best Buy will sell a repackaged title in a special SteelBook edition that features new artwork on the cover, back and inside.

The 3-disc edition includes a 2160p Blu-ray Disc, 1080p Blu-ray Disc, and 1080p Blu-ray Disc with over 13 hours of bonus features like deleted scenes, feature commentary, production featurettes and a full-length documentary  (see full list bonus features below). The extras are the same and there isn’t anything new about this release except the artwork and case, but if you’re a SteelBook collection this is one to add to the collection.

On 4k Blu-ray King Kong is presented at 2.35:1 widescreen aspect ratio in 2160p resolution with High Dynamic Range color utilizing the REC 2020/HDR10 specs. Audio was upgraded from the standard Blu-ray edition to DTS:X and DTS:X Headphone and is compatible with DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround sound.
