Pretty substantial update to the lists on the site today with a bunch of announcements and new titles available for preorder.
The new Jumanji movie is one of the big ones with Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision coming this March 20 on Ultra HD Blu-ray.
I’m also adding 2001: A Space Odyssey and The Matrix to the list of upcoming 4K titles, it’s looking more and more like a done deal for both as mentioned today by Bill Hunt at The Digital Bits.
Also, The Incredible Hulk is now confirmed on Ultra HD Blu-ray for April 10 in DTS:X, as the title is from Universal and they are the last ones really supporting the format.
Oh and Grease is now also confirmed for 4K Blu-ray, coming on April 24.
Quick update of the site today to let you know that Universal will release the 3 Pitch Perfect movies on Ultra HD Blu-ray on March 20. All 3 UHD releases will offer a DTS:X soundtrack and the Blu-ray of the 3rd movie will also offer DTS:X.
For the first two movies it’s a brand new object based audio as the movies were not offered in theatres with Atmos nor DTS:X. In the case of the most recent movie, it’s actually one of the rare cases where a theatrical Atmos release is transitionned to DTS:X for home.
Please note that I also added Ferdinand UHD to the list of Dolby Atmos titles and listed the third Maze Runner movie to the list of upcoming UHD titles as Amazon is already taking preorders for it.
Treat this still as a rumour, but at the same time it’s not really surprising. Initial informations to retailers seem to confirm that The Last Jedi will be released this Spring on Ultra HD Blu-ray with a Dolby Atmos soundtrack.
No word yet on an official date or if there’s any change on also getting The Force Awakens and Rogue One on the format, but it’s a huge news for the industry.
Please note I also updated the lists with some Atmos and Dolby Vision information including:
- Coco coming to UHD with Dolby Atmos too
- Daddy’s Home (DTS:X) & Daddy’s Home 2 (Atmos) UHDs with Dolby Vision
- Murder on the Orient Express UHD with Atmos now has a February 27 date
Just a quick note to tell you that I updated all listing pages tonight.
The big highlights are :
- Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets confirmed for November 21 in Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos.
- Harry Potter first four movies now official for December 11.
