Now, the $25,000 question: worth the upgrade?

re: Heat: re-release slated for 5/9/17

It sounds like it based on the review I linked to a couple posts up

The release is sourced from a new 4K remaster of Heat which was supervised by director Mann. I did some extensive comparisons between the original U.S. release from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and this new release and can confirm that there are indeed some very obvious discrepancies between the two. If you have a very large screen or a projector you will immediately notice improvements in terms of depth and fluidity.
I am little surprised that this new Director's Definitive Edition of Heat did not get a 4K Blu-ray release. I think that the new 4K master is very good and the Blu-ray release represents a very strong upgrade in quality, but I am also convinced that a 4K Blu-ray release would have made the difference even more obvious because various color nuances would be a lot more prominent in 4K.

It looks like the US version is getting some different artwork or slipcover. Also comes with a digital copy.

I'm wondering when they'll update the digital version on Vudu. I converted my blu a long time ago, but the digital looks like shit.

Gorgeous cover pic
Fantastic cover, but I keep telling myself to wait for the UHD 4k version, even if it takes a year or two.

Same here. And this upgrade is about 10 years late, so what's another couple.

I'm confused. What am I missing here? Is this really UHD or not? What's the difference between the version we're getting in May and the hopefully upcoming UHD?

It's not UHD. It's a regular 1080p Blu-ray down-rezed from a new 4K scan. No UHD has been announced.

Arguably one of my favorite movies, so yeah, I'd be kidding myself if I said I wasn't going to buy this.

Correct.
I already have one of the previous BDs, so I don't have an urge to buy this.

If it was UHD... I'd buy it day one.

That's all I'm waiting for now. And with Atmos. This needs Atmos. Sucks they didn't upgrade the sound on the blu or I'd probably pick the blu up now.

It seems like every time I watch this movie the audio sucks. It always seems like the effects are fine but the dialogue is drowned out and hard to hear.

I love this movie but I think I'm going to wait for the eventual Ultra BD release.

Even though it didn't get an Atmos track, there is a slight upgrade in audio this time around. Dolby TrueHD 5.1 (48kHz, 16-bit) for the old release and DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 (48kHz, 24-bit) for the new one. The old release got a 4.0 rating for sound while the new release got a 5.0.

Most of Michael Mann's movies are like that. He prefers that you not be able to hear the dialogue.

I watched the new release last night. This one fixes that previous issue. The PQ upgrade may be debatable, but the new mix alone makes this essential.

The amazon.com site is showing this in bilingual packaging. I usually only see that on .ca

Is everyone else seeing this too?
