John Carpenter's "Christine" UHD 4K: September 11th



Based on the Novel by Stephen King


CHRISTINE

Director John Carpenter’s Iconic Horror Classic Turns 35
Debuts on 4K Ultra HD™ September 11

CULVER CITY, Calif. (June 8, 2018) – The scare factor in John Carpenter’s (Halloween, The Thing) terrifying classic CHRISTINE revs up even higher when it debuts for the first time on next-generation 4K Ultra HD on September 11 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Celebrating its 35th Anniversary, CHRISTINE follows a sentient and violent vintage Plymouth Fury and its effect on the car’s new teenage owner. The film stars Keith Gordon (The Legend of Billie Jean, Back to School), John Stockwell (Into the Blue, Top Gun), Alexandra Paul (“Baywatch,” Piranha) and Harry Dean Stanton (Alien). In addition, the film will also debut in 4K via participating digital platforms.


CHRISTINE is presented in 4K resolution and includes newly-remixed Dolby Atmos audio – perfect for this dynamic and impactful film. 4K Ultra HD features four times the resolution of high definition, high dynamic range (HDR)–which produces brilliant highlights, vibrant colors and greater contrast on compatible displays–and Dolby Atmos audio, remixed specifically for the home theater environment, delivering captivating sound that places and moves audio anywhere in the room, including overhead.

Synopsis:

John Carpenter brings Stephen King’s best-selling novel to life in this chilling thriller. She was born in Detroit … on an automobile assembly line. But she is no ordinary automobile. Deep within her chassis lives an unholy presence. She is CHRISTINE – a red and white 1958 Plymouth Fury whose unique standard equipment includes an evil, indestructible vengeance that will destroy anyone in her way. She seduces 17-year-old Arnie Cunningham (Keith Gordon), who becomes consumed with passion for her sleek, rounded chrome-laden body. She demands his complete and unquestioned devotion and when outsiders seek to interfere, they become the victims of Christine’s horrifying wrath.

CHRISTINE 4K Ultra HD:

Feature film in 4K resolution with High Dynamic Range (HDR)
Dolby Atmos soundtrack (Dolby TrueHD 7.1 compatible)*
Also includes the film on high-def Blu-ray

CHRISTINE Bonus Materials on Blu-ray Include:

Deleted Scenes

Three Featurettes:

* To experience Dolby Atmos at home, a Dolby Atmos enabled AV receiver and additional speakers are required, or a Dolby Atmos enabled sound bar; however, Dolby Atmos soundtracks are also fully backward compatible with traditional audio configurations and legacy home entertainment equipment.

What a strange announcement. I have nothing against the movie and will likely pick it up when it gets cheap enough, but of all the catalog titles out there and with so few getting released, it seems odd that this would be the one chosen for release.

Man, Sony almost seems to be deliberately taunting fans who bought the Twilight Time limited edition.

Hopefully they’ve seen that there’s more demand for their older titles than they thought. I’ll buy more 4K discs of movies shot on actual FILM.

Ten years ago, this was a movie that Sony thought wouldn't even sell 1500 units on Blu-ray and dumped off to Twilight Time as a throw-in on their deal.

Now we are practically rolling in different media versions of Christine.

Hey Sony, John Carpenter's Vampires needs a UHD.
