    Pre-ordered but this is TERRIBLE artwork compared to the iconic HAL one that it seems the UK is getting =/

    I believe this will be WB first disc with Dolby Vision.

    edit: Looks like IT was the first?

    $41.99? I love this film, but that's way too pricey. Prices need to come down on 4K titles in order to entice more to join the format.

    This is MSRP. The street price will be between $20 and $30 by release day.

    Funny as I feel the total opposite. However, so long as we get top notch PQ quality I am fine with any cover.

    This is a surprise. Anyone have any idea if it's a restoration, new scan, etc.?

    Since it's Warner Brothers, it will probably be a little over $30 and will stay around that price for quite awhile. That was their pattern with Blade Runner and Unforgiven in UHD.

    The asymmetrical bits make my eye twitch.

    I agree; but, with no information from my end; this price could also be an indicator of a rolled out red carpet on both the transfer and much, much more. So, let's wait and see, as I'm thinking that something great just might be ahead.

    Unfortunately I got a notice today from Amazon where they said there was no set release date. Only a few weeks ago I got a notice indicating that I would have the disc by mid May. Wonder if there is going to be a delay?

    I can wait and hopefully what we get will be good. I don't have UHD but I am hoping for an improved quality blu ray.
