Dredd 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray available to pre-order now!
« on: 09 April, 2017, 04:49:58 pm »
This has been mentioned in a previous thread, but it seems deserving of its own.

For tech savvy squax the rather good film Dredd is making its UHD debut on 06/06/17!

Wow HD currently seems to have the cheapest price, £17.48 including postage!

Note Ultra HD discs are apparently region free, while the standard Blu-ray disc will most probably be locked to U.S.A region A.

Nice! I haven't upgraded to a 4K telly yet, but am planning to towards the end of the year (once the Scorpio console is out it'll make a lot more sense for me). Now I know what the first 4K movie I purchase will be.

Bear in mind, I'm pretty sure that isn't a 3D release in 4K - not even sure 4K/3D standard was ever established.

Yeah, with the prospect of going 4K I now find myself faced with a choice when I buy a lot of blu-rays - do I get the one that comes with a 3D copy or the one that comes with a 4K copy?! Obviously 3D is better for the moment because I can actually get the benefit, but it'd be nice if when I get a 4K telly I've already got some stuff to watch on it.

I see Ex-Machina is coming out on the same day on 4k http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Ex-Machina-4K-Blu-ray/176583/

It's gonna be a good day for 4K owners. I'm a bit concerned about the special effects. Anyone who has seen Fury Road on 4k will know that the digital fire effects on 4k can look pretty crap. But I will reserve judgement until I get my copy.

A bit miffed that you can't get 4k 3d, not that I'm a fan of 3d but Dredd really does watch best in 3d.

As Steve said, 4K 3D was never a standard and with major manufacturers like LG pulling out of 3D compatible tech market , it's doubtful how long it will last as an option.

All the FX were rendered as 2K for FURY ROAD so it's a 2K digital master upscaled to a 4k image rather than an original 4k master. It will more or less be the same for DREDD as the film wasn't mastered in 4k to begin with.

The benefit of these releases is that it's HDR which means it has better colour dynamics.

The reviews are coming in for the 4K UHD release of Dredd and by all accounts it's a stunner, with particular praise levelled at the newly mixed Dolby Atmos soundtrack!
