Sony is releasing a batch of eleven 4k Blu-ray titles under the banner “PS5 4k Movie Essentials” starting on Dec. 1, 2020. The new editions are essentially re-releases of previous UHD BD titles but with new slipcovers, intended to market the upcoming PlayStation 5 consoles that are capable of UHD BD playback.
Among the 4k Movie Essentials are the blockbusters Spider-Man: Far From Home, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and The Fifth Element, as well as popular Sony films Baby Driver (2017), Hellboy (2004), Pineapple Express, Underworld (2003), Venom, and Zombieland: Double Tap. This year’s releases Bad Boys For Life and Bloodshot are also part of the 4k Movie Essentials series. (See package art for all eleven Sony 4k Movie Essentials.)
All of the Sony titles are combo editions that include a 4k Blu-ray, Blu-ray and Digital Copy (redeemable with Movies Anywhere partners). The Digital Copies will be available in 4k/HDR/Dolby Atmos from most movie streaming services such as Apple TV, FandangoNow, Vudu, and of course Movies Anywhere.
Each title in the PS5 4k Movie Essentials series is currently priced $30.99 on Amazon (see the cart below for updates and availability).
