Such a shame 4K UHD's are hit or miss these day's look at what just happened to WB's The Exorcist 4K UHD the exorcism scene had moments where the picture quality dropped into DVD quality bit rate drops colour bleeding over use of HDR also DNR added to these scenes. Hopefully Titanic will still look great (as long as Cameron doesn't find some way to force his awful 60FPS onto the disc for select scenes like he did with the re-release. I don't see this looking any better then the Blu-ray especially with all the encoding issues these day's with 4K UHD discs. The directorial debut of Molly Manning Walker, How To Have Sex is coming to cinemas on 3rd November courtesy of MUBI.

Lionsgate has also delayed their 4K Ultra HD + Blu-ray release of Jean-Luc Godard’s Contempt (1963) from 9/26 to 10/24. We know for a fact that 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment had even prepared new Blu-ray releases (most recently rumored for release in 2017), but Cameron never got around to approving the new transfers, so the Blu-ray releases never happened. Next up, Dennis has delivered his take on Don Owen’s Nobody Waved Goodbye (1964) on Blu-ray, also from Vinegar Syndrome. And Stephen has delivered his in-depth take on AGFA and Something Weird Video’s nine-film, three-disc The Films of Doris Wishman: The Moonlight Years Blu-ray box set, distributed by Vinegar Syndrome. And Dennis’ thoughts on William A Wellman’s Westward the Women (1951) on Blu-ray from the Warner Archive Collection, as well as James Foley’s After Dark, My Sweet (1990) on Blu-ray from Kino Lorber Studio Classics.

The next, you are almost 25 years into the new century looking back on nearly 30 years of convincing CGI to the point that you forget just how long ago this film came out! So I’ve spent the last several days checking in with well-placed industry sources and here’s what I’ve learned: Essentially, it’s unlikely that we’ll see either title arrive on physical 4K in 2022. The studio time had been booked, the colour grading at the very least is – on the technical side – complete.

Independently, the duo had respectively been looking for specific entries in Cameron’s back catalogue of films to watch, True Lies and The Abyss.The technical storage or access is strictly necessary for the legitimate purpose of enabling the use of a specific service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user, or for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network. What I finally figured out is that Cameron has just been too distracted with other projects to approve new transfers of these films, first with diving to the bottom of the ocean and more recently with his Avatar prequels.

All right, I’m very pleased to break in with a rare weekend My Two Cents post here on The Bits this evening to report some very good news: Director James Cameron has now confirmed the impending 4K Ultra HD release of The Abyss! However, as we talked about here, that was a good year or two back, and yet the film remains absent from even the Blu-ray format. Obviously, if you’ve read my update here on The Bits (from early last week, on Tuesday), you’ll know that our own sources have been indicating for a while now that both The Abyss and the original Avatar would be coming to 4K Ultra HD concurrently with Avatar: The Way of Water.I also posted my review of the John Krasinski TV actioner Jack Ryan: Season One in 4K Ultra HD from Paramount. When an American nuclear submarine crashes, the United States Government believe the Russians to be responsible. It’s also believed that the titles in the studio’s Volume 1 set— Dracula (1931), Frankenstein (1931), The Wolf Man (1941), and The Invisible Man (1932)—will finally be released as single-film SKUs, for sure in the UK and possibly in the US as well. Bill Hunt of The Digital Bits has been following this story even longer than us, and his sources on the matter are better placed than ours too. Now then, we’ve got some new 4K UHD release news for you today, as well as updates on a few titles that have been rumored in the last couple of weeks.

In his time at Collider, he has also helped drive diversity by writing stories about the multiple Indian film industries, with a goal to introduce audiences to a whole new world of cinema. Well, now we’re hearing the first word that you can tentatively add Giant (1956), Elf (2003), and A Christmas Story (1983) to that list as well. Cameron said that now, with a recently-finished high-def transfer, he hopes that audiences can enjoy the film in pristine condition, on streaming, and on physical media. Now then, we’ve been circling back with our many industry and retail sources here at The Bits, and we’ve got an update on some interesting titles that are coming to 4K Ultra HD in the months ahead. I’ve been reluctant to talk about the prospects of James Cameron’s The Abyss and True Lies arriving on Blu-ray (and dare we hope 4K) in 2019 because we’ve had SO many solid reports that these films were finally coming only to see them evaporate.The Resident Evil Limited Edition 4K Ultra HD Collection* (includes all 6 films) ( US/ US Aussie import/UK) – 11/3/20 – REVIEW (We've reviewed the Random Space Media version of this set, which is essentially identical to the Sony release. After a series of near-fatal disasters, the workers find that they are the only people who are capable of stopping World War III. We’re back as promised this evening with more upcoming catalog 4K Ultra HD news and rumors from our studio, industry, and retail sources. To date, the film has enjoyed a DVD release that was packed with extra features, but fell far short in the presentation stakes.
