Universal Confirms Ultra HD Blu-ray Support Including Warcraft

Sorry for being late to post this, but Universal confirmed last week that they will be supporting the Ultra HD Blu-ray formats.

They confirm a first list of titles, with no firm release date or specs yet, but had say that object based audio will be part of their releases, which is not surprising.

The initial list is :

  • The Huntsman: Winter’s War
  • Everest
  • Jason Bourne
  • Lone Survivor
  • Lucy
  • Warcraft

As usual, I added the movies to the list of Ultra HD Blu-rays on this site.


Deadpool confirmed on UHD Blu-ray with Dolby Atmos

UPDATE: The Ultra HD version will offer a Dolby Atmos soundtrack, which will be the second one from Fox.

The 20th Century Fox confirmed that Deadpool will get a simultaneous release on Blu-ray and Ultra HD Blu-ray.

No details on the audio format yet, but there’s not a release date associated with the release: May 10th. There is information that the Ultra HD version will offer a Dolby Atmos soundtrack.

I updated the list of Ultra HD Blu-rays on the site.

Zoolander 2 On Blu-ray With DTS:X

Paramount will release Zoolander 2 on Blu-ray on May 24th with a DTS:X track.

Again, this is a remix from home as the movie did not receive an object based mix in theaters. I’m beginning to see a trend with more and more remixes done in DTS:X (except for Sony on UHD) while original Atmos being released that way. Anyway, the more object based tracks the better it is.

London Has Fallen With DTS:X On Blu-ray

Universal Studios announced today that London Has Fallen, starring Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart and Morgan Freeman will be available on Blu-ray with a DTS:X track on June 14th

This is going to be a brand new immersive audio track as the movie was not mixed that way in theaters. It seems we’re starting to see more and more remixes done in DTS:X, which is great news.

Date Announced For Two More Shout Factory Ultra HD Blu-rays

There is now a date and preorders have started for two Shout Factory Ultra HD Blu-ray titles that were already announced earlier this year.

Rocky Mountain Express and Flight of the Butterflies will both be available on July 12th in a Ultra HD Blu-ray and Blu-ray combo. Flight of the Butterflies includes the 3D Blu-ray version on the film on the same disc as the 2D version.
