4K in the Fall: E.T., CLOSE ENCOUNTERS, BLADE RUNNER

#1 Post by AndyDursin » Thu Jul 13, 2017 8:44 am

Some potentially exciting UHD releases coming this fall, though BLADE RUNNER will only be in its "Final Cut" iteration, so fans will want to keep their prior Blu-Ray releases because this package doesn't have them!

9/5 - BLADE RUNNER Final Cut

9/12 - E.T.

9/17 - CLOSE ENCOUNTERS

10/10 - PEANUTS HOLIDAY COLLECTION

Any word if ET is the original version?

It will be, the Blu-Ray only has the original version as a viewing option.

No official specs yet. Waiting to see what's on the 4K disc specifically.

The BLADE RUNNER 4K is gorgeous, truly stunning. Colors pop like I haven't witnessed before on this film -- and yeah, you'll need to keep the 2012 or 2007 release because Warner messed up and DIDN'T include the Workprint and a whole smattering of extras -- but the presentation is just spectacular. Thumbs up for this one!

E.T. is another winner! Stellar transfer, stronger colors, less contrasty (in a good way) from a Blu-Ray that looks too "light" by comparison.

2/2 for BLADE RUNNER and E.T....hope we can make it 3/3 with CLOSE ENCOUNTERS!
