All right, that was fast!
It’s now official: Paramount Home Entertainment and Lucasfilm have indeed set the Indiana Jones 4-Movie Collection for release on 4K Ultra HD on 6/8.
Here’s a nice surprise: The set will include Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos audio after all. Per studio confirmation, the exact audio options on the US SKUs will include in English (Dolby Atmos), as well as 5.1 in French, Italian, Japanese, Russian, and Spanish. Subtitles will be available in English, Cantonese, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, and Thai.
The 5-disc set will contain all four of the existing films—Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull—along with a Blu-ray Disc of legacy bonus features. It does NOT appear that the set will include any new features. You will, however, get Digital copies of each film.
The collectible packaging will be available in two varieties: Regular and Steelbook (exclusive to Best Buy in the US), each with a slipcase. You can see both pictured below (the regular version is also visible at left).

We’re starting things off today with this just in from Paramount Home Entertainment: George Cukor’s My Fair Lady (1964) and J.J. Abrams’ Super 8 (2011) are now official for release on the 4K Ultra HD format on 5/25.
My Fair Lady is presented in 4K, mastered from the 2015 8K film scan and restoration of the original camera negative and surviving 65 mm elements.
Both HDR10 and Dolby Vision will be included (this is now confirmed). Audio will be available in the same English 7.1 Dolby TrueHD mix found on the 2015 Blu-ray edition.
There are no extras on the 4K disc itself, but the package will include that same Blu-ray (along with a Digital code). [Read on here...]
All right, it’s finally official: Universal Studios Home Entertainment will release Back to the Future: The Ultimate Trilogy on Blu-ray, DVD, 4K Ultra HD, and Digital on 10/20. The set will include all three films with a bonus disc that includes all-new content.
In addition to the wide-release SKUs, there will be a trio of retail exclusive versions here in the States: a Limited Edition 4K Ultra HD Gift Set on Amazon that includes a levitating hoverboard replica and Digibook packaging, a Limited Edition Blu-ray Gift Set at Target that includes a levitating hoverboard replica and Digibook packaging, and a Limited Edition 4K Ultra HD Gift Set at Best Buy that includes Steelbook packaging.

Heads-up: Disney and Marvel’s Captain America: The First Avenger appears to be coming to 4K Ultra HD on 2/26, per Best Buy pre-order listings. The retailer currently has listings for the title in SKUs with regular and Steelbook packaging.
The film has a 2K DI. It’s possible there could be a new Dolby Atmos audio mix, but as has recently been the case with Disney 4K releases, look for Dolby Vision HDR on the digital version only.
It should be noted that 2/26 is the same street date as their already announced The Little Mermaid and Ralph Breaks the Internet 4K releases, both of which will also have Steelbook SKUs at Best Buy.
Meanwhile, we have one other 4K-related item to report today: Some of you have noticed that there’s been an image circulating around the Internet over the past few days purporting to show an exclusive 4K release of the Indiana Jones films in China. Our studio sources tell us this is bogus. There are no plans at this time. We take that to mean not never, but not anytime soon. Adjust your plans accordingly.
Have a great weekend and we’ll see you with a full news update on Monday.

All right, we’ve only got one thing for you today, as we close out the week and kick off the long Fourth of July holiday weekend here in the States. But it’s a good one, especially for you Marvel fans.
It looks like Disney is finally getting ready to release the Netflix original series Daredevil on Blu-ray and DVD (£25.99 and £19.99). Daredevil: The Complete First Season is currently set for Blu-ray and DVD release on 10/3... in the U.K. at least. [Read on here…]
