Can't wait for this. It's popped up on Wow for £15.11 here so fingers crossed it goes sub £15 so there's no extra 'tax'.

UK's getting a Blu-ray the same week. Meh.

Decided I wasn’t going to wait the two and a half weeks most WowHD orders take to reach Ireland and priced a copy with Amazon.com.........
and then I decided I would rather pay €16.64 instead of $35 so actually, yes I don’t mind waiting at all :)

Wait for user reviews its most likely a 2K upscale due to the low budget nature of the original photography. 4K UHD is not going to be able to add much more than WCG & a little HDR in places.

Audio:
English: Dolby TrueHD 7.1
English: Dolby TrueHD Mono

From the usual sources.

No idea -nor care- what WCG is but it's not going to delay me buying one of the most exciting releases of the year.

Dolby Vision looks better on my TV so I'm glad that is the HDR method they are using. No new extras (at least from memory) Shame there is no mention of Atmos or DTSX.

Considerd it , can't lie but but the PQ of the UHD will have to be something really special to make me upgrade over the BD . Seeing the BD I would expect the HDR and WCG to be drowned out with the biblical grain fest that the UHD will bring over them .

Hopefully I'm wrong .
