Upcoming 4K Releases For Horror Fans
Summary: If you're looking for the latest horror films on the big screen, then you're in luck because some of them are coming to 4K. We'll cover the latest news and which upcoming movies are likely to get a physical release in HD before being released in 4K.
Hocus Pocus and Home Alone are expected to be the last older movies to get a physical release in HD format
The last old movie to get a physical release in HD format will be "Hocus Pocus" (originally released in 1984). While the film was a flop upon its release, it has since become a Halloween classic. And it is set to get a sequel!
Although Hollywood is increasingly interested in digital distribution of movies, it hasn't made a practice of releasing classic movies in physical form. As a result, it has dropped most of its older movies from its catalogue. However, James Cameron is a notable exception to the rule. Disney is eager to release the sequels to his blockbuster hit "Avatar," the highest-grossing movie of all time. As a result, he may be able to get the sequels on disc and bring them to theaters.
While the lack of new titles means that older movies won't get a physical release in HD, it's still a good thing for fans to know that they can buy them in a variety of formats. Many popular titles, including 'Home Alone' and 'Unbreakable', were previously considered for physical release in HD. In fact, they were considered for a UHD physical release due to their existing restoration and HDR work.
The new 4K versions of Home Alone and "Hocus Pocus" will arrive on Sept. 15 and 16 respectively, a week after the release of "Jurassic Park." But Disney isn't quite as forthcoming with classic titles in 4K Ultra HD format. It is still not clear whether this will change in the future.
While Home Alone and Hocus Pocus are expected to be the last older movies to be released in HD format, you can still find a new release of the films by checking out the latest blu-ray releases. The movies were also remastered to be more enjoyable for the new generation of moviegoers.
The Top Gun: Maverick release date has been set for the year 2022. The film is the sequel to the 1986 hit, Top Gun. The movie was written by Ehren Kruger and is based on a story by Peter Craig and Justin Marks. The sequel is slated to star the returning Chris Pratt as the legendary pilot.
According to Paramount, the film's release date will follow the launch of Paramount Plus, a subscription service for movies and TV shows. The service will be included with the Sky Cinema package. However, the company has refused to sell the distribution rights to other platforms, such as Netflix and Apple TV+. The sequel also stars Tom Cruise, who confirmed his return as Pete 'Maverick' Mitchell.
The sequel to "Top Gun" is set to hit the theaters on May 27. Although there are early access screenings three days prior to the premiere, the movie is not yet available on Netflix or Amazon Prime Video. However, the movie is currently available on digital retailers like Amazon for $20 and will be available on streaming services such as Paramount+ at some point.
The sequel is set in the same universe as the original Top Gun movie. The story follows US Naval Aviator Pete 'Maverick' Mitchell, a skilled pilot who develops a close bond with his co-pilot Goose. Maverick is then recruited to the elite fighter pilot school, where he clashes with fellow student Iceman and falls in love with the stunning Charlie.
The sequel to Top Gun will be a summer blockbuster. It will be released on the big screen first, and then streamed on the Paramount+ service 45 days after the theatrical release. The original release date was July 12, but the delay was made due to a number of changes.
The sequel is set several decades after the first film, and Tom Cruise reprises his role as the iconic pilot. He'll be joined by Val Kilmer and Miles Teller. The cast also includes Jennifer Connelly as an old flame from Maverick's past.
Previously released on Blu-ray and DVD in the U.S., Demons 2 are now headed for the 4K treatment, courtesy of Synapse. This new release includes an enhanced soundtrack, a newly-edited audio commentary track, and technical documentaries. Both English and Italian tracks are available, along with optional English subtitles.
Demons is an Italian horror film directed by Lamberto Bava, whose father is famous for A Bay of Blood. The film is chock full of blood, gore, and intense closeups, making it perfect for horror fans. While it's not for everyone, it's definitely worth checking out if you love the genre.
The 4K transfer of Demons 2 is a stunning upgrade over the previous Blu-ray and DVD releases. The movie's image quality is more accurate than ever, representing the 35mm film format in the best light possible. It also reveals seams in makeup and puppet work, which adds to the charm.
The second film is slightly longer than the first and boasts a much larger setting. It follows a group of people in an apartment building, where they try to keep their demon enemies at bay. The movie takes place in a world where humanity has survived the apocalypse, and the demons have been locked behind a wall. While the people in the apartment building watch a TV documentary about the demons, there are some questions left unanswered.
Both Demons 2 are incredibly exciting movies, and are sure to be must-see movies for horror fans. Get ready for a cinematic insanity this weekend! You won't be sorry! These horror classics are coming to 4K!
A new audio commentary for Demons 2 has been added by Travis Crawford. In addition to this, the disc includes several interviews with cast and crew. Additionally, the DVD comes with a reproduction of a DEMONS movie ticket and a birthday invitation. It also includes a fold-out poster of the original artwork by Wes Benscoter.
Demons 2 are set for release in 4K Ultra HD. The new 4K discs contain original and new artwork. The films are housed in a clear keepcase case and come with a booklet and an invitation card. The discs start out with music, and are accompanied by full-motion clips. Discs are also provided with the usual selection of options.
James Cameron confirmed that his Avatar sequels may still be released, though he's not sure when they will actually be available to fans. The director has revealed that the sequels will follow the same storyline, but will be subtitled differently. For example, Avatar 2 will be subtitled The Way of Water, while the sequels will be titled The Seed Bearer, The Tulkun Rider, and The Quest for Eywa. The director also said that the sequels may not be released on disc, but rather in theaters.
James Cameron's films have always managed to soaring above the studio shop talk, making him one of the few directors who can truly do what he wants. The sequels to Avatar took a little longer to complete than the first film, and the director didn't feel compelled to hurry them along as the distributors wanted. James Cameron also resisted the fad of releasing multiple films from his most popular franchises every year.
The sequels to Avatar have been in the works for 13 years. The first movie, "Avatar," briefly overtook Avengers: Endgame for the highest grossing film of all time, but Avatar reclaimed the title after a special cinema release in China. The Avatar sequel is expected to have emotional heft as well as the CGI-laden visuals of Pandora.
If the sequels to Avatar are delayed for another 13 years, it's likely that they will never be released on disc. James Cameron is a perfectionist, and he's been waiting for technology to catch up to his vision. Even before the Avatar sequels started production, the director talked about using higher frame rates. After Peter Jackson released The Hobbit trilogy, higher frame rates became a popular choice for movies.
The sequel will feature new characters and familiar faces from the original film. Sigourney Weaver, who played Dr. Grace Augustine in the first film, will reprise her role. In Avatar 2, the two main characters Jake and Neytiri will have a new clan. In addition to the three Na'vi characters, we'll see CCH Pounder as Neytiri's mother, Mo'at. Matt Gerald will be back as Corporal Lyle Wainfleet, while Kate Winslet will play the role of Ronal.
