Also here at The Bits today (in case you missed it when I first posted it on Friday morning) I’ve got a new review of the BBC’s Planet Earth II in 4K Ultra HD. That is a revelation, worth every penny and every minute of your time. It too streets tomorrow.
And with those reviews, I’ve now reviewed a total of 50 titles on the 4K Ultra HD format – a nice milestone that will be eclipsed later this afternoon or this evening when I finish my review of Warner’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which also streets on Blu-ray, DVD and 4K tomorrow. And then I’ve got to get those hardware reviews I’ve been promising up later this week. No rest for the weary!
Before I go today, there’s a bit of new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray release news this afternoon: Lionsgate has just officially set Snitch, Ex Machina, and Dredd for release on the format on 6/6. Each will include the Blu-ray edition plus a Digital Copy, and will include most or all of the extras from the Blu-ray release (SRP $22.99 each). Snitch and Dredd will offer Dolby Atmos audio, while Ex Machina will include DTS:X. You can see the cover artwork below (click the covers to pre-order them on Amazon.com – links will be added as soon as they’re available)...
Back later with that Fantastic Beasts review. Stay tuned!
