Hopefully it happens. I found the crowdfunding page here:
https://www.kisskissbankbank.com/en/...r-cult-edition

Whether or not they're actually doing a 4K disc seems... uncertain. The graphic on the page says it's the very last stretch goal for 50,000 euros, but they didn't technically reach it; missing it by only 145! Hopefully it means they'll do it anyway (being so close and all), and for more than just the Argento cut.

The set might be worth it for the Cannes cut alone.

Of course, it would be awesome if someone pieced together an "Extended Mall Hours" fan edit using the 4K discs. That would never get an official release, of course... but it would be nice to have.

Re: UHD release announcements

Okay, so apparently there's some confusion about this stupid French conference thingie.

Confirmed titles
Confirmed + rumors

I started with the first list, saw a bunch of other stuff listed on blu-ray.com's forums, then thought I'd found a more complete list. Nope! Some of those titles can be ignored until there's better confirmation (Heat, The Godfather, Ben Hur, Lawrence of Arabia, Gravity, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan). Not to say that those aren't coming, necessarily, but those haven't been confirmed for 2019 yet.

Zombie is still on there for March, though! So, whatever that means, if it means anything at all.

Scarface for July 2019? Oh yeah finally!

Throw me Godfather and Godfather II and it's all I need for 2019.

I'm glad they're announcing this now instead of waiting after the Blu-ray has been out for a while to sucker early buyers like they did with Lion King.

I don't know how happy I am about this, it's most likely an upscale of the now decade+ old existing DI rather than a new 4k scan of the original negative. Disney isn't Sony.

Supposedly The Lion King 4K wasn't a big upgrade over the blu ray, so I would be surprised if this is any different.

Re: UHD release announcements

Yeah. I can see myself picking up UHD releases of classic Disney animated titles I'd missed on Blu-ray, and I'm sure I could be suckered in by the large format ones like Sleeping Beauty. I'm not sure how many I already have that I'll upgrade, though.

In other news, the original Pet Sematary is coming to Ultra HD Blu-ray, tying into the theatrical release of the remake. Slated for March 26th.

A cheap upscale of an old DI is my diagnosis. Disney doesnít treat its back catalog with respect.

Re: UHD release announcements

The Lion King was produced using CAPS. The pipeline was all-digital and natively around 2K.

I agree about Disney’s treatment of their back catalog in general, but I’m not sure there’s much more they could do with animated films from the CAPS era than what we’re seeing with The Lion King.

Anyone care to lay odds on Sleepy Hollow going 4K for the 20th anniversary in 2019?

Looks like we might see this in May in the U.S.? None of the sequels appear to be coming alongside it.

I bought the Lion King 4K but if that's the case again for The Little Mermaid, I'll wait until it is properly remastered..

Re: UHD release announcements

It doesn't sound like they did anything special for the release, which is actually pretty sad.

I've read that all of the pre-CAPS Diamond Editions were remastered in 4K, so The Little Mermaid should be coming from a true 4K master (though it presumably wouldn't be a new 4K master).

Well, there's this:

Digital exclusive special features include “Part of Your World” – A 30-Year Retrospective featuring Alan Menken and Jodi Benson, as well as over 3 hours of classic bonus features including deleted scenes and Easter Eggs.
Why it's not on the disc, I have no idea. Pretty sad in its own right.

With few exceptions, I don't plan on updating my animated DVDs/BDs with a 4K (maybe because I grew up watching cartoons in SD on the Boob Tube?).
The only animated 4K I have is Coco.

Woot!
In spite of the BD looking great, I would buy this in an instant if the upgrade is significant.

Re: UHD release announcements

I wonder if Alien is going the route of some of the other recent series where only the first movie is released in UHD?

Re: UHD release announcements

4kfilme.de is listing the Batman tetralogy (Batman, Batman Returns, Batman Forever, and Batman & Robin) as arriving in June, alongside a 35th anniversary edition of Gremlins.

It does look like Fox is pulling another Die Hard here, yeah. With The Abyss and True Lies in endless limbo, I can't imagine it'd be easy to get Cameron to sign off on an Aliens remaster.

Fuck Cameron. Why do these assholes have so much control over these films? Everything else just gets released. This is the 30th anniversary of Abyss ,and we better fucking see a BD/UHD with both fucking cuts.

Not long ago I read an interview with JC and he said he was game for a UHD release of Aliens.
He is especially proud of his classic Sci-fi monster movie.

Like he's proud of True Lies and The Abyss. Yeah, let's hold our breath for Aliens to hit UHD.
