We know that Disney has been waiting for more Dolby Vision capability to start appearing in 4K hardware before joining the format and, as we reported at CES last month, Sony, TCL, LG, Vizio, and Philips have all agreed to support Dolby Vision in their displays and players. The new Oppo UDP-203 player will also support Dolby Vision after a forthcoming firmware update.
We’ve reached out to Disney to see if we can find out more on this and we’ll let you know if and what we hear back from them.
Meanwhile, a quick survey of Amazon.de shows some additional titles that are now up for pre-order in Germany on the format, most of them unsurprising, and most sure to find their way to the U.S. as well. They include: Fifty Shades Darker, John Wick 2, Sing, The LEGO Batman Movie, Live by Night, 187, and Mad Max (1979).
And in other news today, our friends at the Warner Archive have just announced that they’re working on a new Blu-ray release of Demon Seed (1977).
