Discussion in '4K Ultra HD Blu-rays' started by RedDevil85, May 15, 2019 at 9:53 PM.
Currently down for 1st October in the US. Will update thread when a UK release gets confirmed.
Another absolute must! How much longer can the 4K naysayers hold out?!
VERY happy about this!
Okay...I'm all over this like a rash! One of my favorite horror flicks of all time!!!!!
Both versions maybe?
All over this like a tramp on chips.
This, Apocalypse Now and Casino apparently all later this year.
Knew it was coming they are showing it this Friday in Cannes I think. Leon Vitali supervised so that is good enough for me he did great work on the 2001 4K
This should look stunning in UHD, fantastic news.
I really hope so...
THE best horror film of all time for me...no question. Im just praying Dr Sleep is half as good as I really enjoyed the book and its certainly got potential as a film (I was imagining it as a film whilst reading it). Has to be a 15 minimum though..
Oh my. And not bothered about the longer version. Just having this in 4K wets my whistle
Although I hope it includes the full Final Cut as originally envisaged by Kubrick :
THE CHICKENING (2016)Watch this video on YouTube
It's the 146 minute version.
More details here,would have liked both version ,but still a buy
The Shining 4K Blu-ray
Spielberg as well as Leon Vitali
"The 4K remastering was done using a new 4K scan of the original 35mm camera negative at Warner Bros. Motion Picture Imaging. Filmmaker Steven Spielberg and Stanley Kubrick's former personal assistant Leon Vitali worked closely with the team at Warner Bros. during the mastering process."
US cut means a hard pass from me. Can't stand all that extra exposition it adds. It's a pity, as I'm sure it'll look great, but I'd rather have my Blu of the European cut if that's what it takes.
Agreed, I've seen the US cut - had it on laserdisc but I really prefer the european cut.
That's absolutely brilliant.
This one I can’t pass on
I still prefer the US cut simply because its longer (more is better!) and the extra bits still have the novelty factor for me having only seen the UK one for years.
It is a shame we didn't have the choice though. Im going to put the 4K disc in my Italian steelbook with the UK cut Blu-ray. The new steelbook is....different but not for me.
Does anyone know what aspect ratio this will be? (Or what it is supposed to be)?
The DVDs were 1.33:1 (open-matte). I have the extended edition on blu-ray at 1.78:1.
I presume that the 4K will be 1.78:1 but wanted to check.
Pretty much guaranteed it will be 1.78:1.
Looks like the UK (European) cut will not be included though so hold on to that if you have it.
