All right, we’ve got one more review for you guys at the moment, which is Tim’s look at Shout! Factory’s Into the Night: Collector’s Edition – a new Shout Select title. I’m working on another Harry Potter 4K UHD review, which I hope to have up a bit later. And I’ve updated my Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone 4K UHD review to reflect corrected information, which is that the title was mastered from a new native 4K scan and not a 2K DI upsample as originally believed (and I’m double checking this with the studio just to make sure). The first two Potter films were released theatrically before the practice of using digital intermediates became common. Thanks to those Bits readers who spotted that.

Also, very quickly: Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy in 4K Ultra HD is now available for pre-order on Amazon from Warner Bros (click here or on the artwork below). It appears that The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises are going to be variable aspect ratio (for the IMAX footage) and that all three (and all of the films in the Nolan 4K Collection as well) will use the original theatrical audio mixes in lossless DTS-HD Master Audio format.

We do NOT know yet whether the Blu-rays included in the packaging will be mastered from the new 4K scans or simply be the previous Blu-ray editions (we’ll try to find out). In any case, you can see The Dark Knight Trilogy 4K cover art above-left and also below.

Now then... here are some of Today’s Best Black Friday BD/4K Deals on Amazon

Once again, here’s the cover art for all the Christopher Nolan 4K titles (only Disney’s The Prestige and the Dark Knight singles are not yet available for pre-order on Amazon)...

The Christopher Nolan Collection (4K Ultra HD) The Dark Knight Trilogy (4K Ultra HD Blu-ray) Dunkirk (4K Ultra HD Blu-ray)

Interstellar (4K Ultra HD) Batman Begins (4K Ultra HD Blu-ray) The Dark Knight (4K Ultra HD Blu-ray)

The Dark Knight Rises (4K Ultra HD Blu-ray) Inception (4K Ultra HD Blu-ray) The Prestige (4K Ultra HD Blu-ray)

Stay tuned…!
