Moonstruck restored in 4k for new Blu-ray & DVD editions

Moonstruck Blu-ray Criterion Collection

Criterion Collection has restored Moonstruck to a new 4k digital master for release on Blu-ray and DVD. The editions arrive on November 17, 2020 featuring new interviews with screenwriter John Patrick Shanley and scholar Stefano Albertini, as well as previously-released extras, interviews, and audio commentary.

This isn’t a 4k Blu-ray release (we’re still waiting on Criterion to delve into 4k). And, it appears the audio is the same DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack found on previous Blu-ray versions. Still though, this new 1080p print from a 4k master has got to show substantial improvements over the previous disc editions.

Moonstruck is list-priced $39.99 (Blu-ray) and $29.99 (DVD). Order on Amazon
