All right, two other pieces of news today…
First, Lionsgate has officially announced the 4K Ultra HD release of Law Abiding Citizen on 11/6. The films stars Jamie Foxx and Gerald Butler. The 4K package will include the film in 4K with both Dolby Atmos audio and Dolby Vision HDR, and you’ll also get a Blu-ray copy of the film with all the previous extras.
And you’ll recall that we reported yesterday that Lionsgate would be bringing The Rambo Trilogy to 4K Ultra HD, based upon an 11/14 street date listing by French retailers. Well, Best Buy has now listed the individual films for release on 4K Ultra HD here in the States on 11/13. There’s no sign of a trilogy set here in the States yet, nor does Rambo (2008) appear to be planned for release in 4K at this time (but we’d be surprised if it didn’t follow sooner than later).
That’s all for now. Stay tuned…
