Fox acquired 20% of Regency Enterprises who produced Heat which gave them distribution rights.

YES! Can't wait for this one - yet another nail in the 4K naysayers coffins! :D

Will we get different cuts? I don't care too much but it would be nice. And what art will we get? I really liked the US amaray art from the last release which is the one I've got right now. Please... no more floating heads!

All but the boutique companies (Arrow) largely skip any heavy lifting when it comes to cuts / features IMO.

Heat's got 2 (? - I've kinda lost track because they keep changing the names of the cuts) but all we'll see is the 'Director's Definitive' (as per the press release) as that's what was on the last 4K remastered Blu-ray release, which likely directly forms the basis for this.

I don't think the theatrical has ever been released in HD.

Still, DAY ONE, in my personal top 5.

Yeah its too much to hope for. But getting this on 4K disc seemed too much to hope for not long ago! Can't wait for this one. Got Collateral 4K arriving any day now too.

Well I don’t know how it passed me by, but imagine having this to watch for the first time from the best format available.
As with ‘Gravity’, I can wait just a bit longer now! ( Usual caveat applies: Assuming they don’t foxtrot it up.)
 
I wanted this more than the Lord Of The Rings boxset! Now for Ronin to get the treatment.

Genuinely very happy.😊

Would absolutely love Ronin. Hopefully Arrow get round to it soon.

Was anyone else let down by the gun shots on the Bluray?

I have vague memories thinking the DVD sounded punchier?

I could be wrong!

This is the one I have...

Which Blu-ray are you referring to? It's been released by more than one distributor, with different 5.1 lossless audio mixes... For instance, I own the Warner disc, the Fox disc, and the Geneon Universal Japanese disc.
