With Ultra HD Blu-ray players set to hit the marketplace this year, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced its initial slate of 4K Blu-ray discs for 2016.
The first titles set for release are Mad Max: Fury Road, San Andreas, The Lego Movie and Pan, which will be followed by theatrical new release titles available day and date with their initial home entertainment release (so hopefully that will include the likes of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad!), along with titles from the WB back catalogue such as Man of Steel and Pacific Rim throughout the year. Over 35 titles are expected to be available by the end of 2016.
“We are excited to take this next technological leap which will allow us to bring our audiences the best possible home viewing experience with crystal clear images and immersive audio,” said Ron Sanders, President, Warner Bros. Worldwide Home Entertainment Distribution. “Ultra HD with HDR is the next, and most exciting, advancement in home entertainment, and with the anticipated proliferation of Ultra HD televisions in the coming years, our Ultra HD Blu-ray product offerings will truly complement the stunning capabilities of this new generation of home entertainment hardware. Warner Bros. is fully committed to releasing a wide range of Ultra HD Blu-ray titles, including both new release titles and offerings from our vast catalog.”
