    I'm running an OPPO UDP-203 to a 2019 Samsung QN75Q70RAFXZA QLED which does HDR10+ but not DV, so yes it matters to me.

    Robert Rodriguez on an Alita Sequel

    “Oh yeah! I would love to come back and do that one. It was so fun. Working with Jim’s great, I thought Rosa was incredible, and the effects were just amazing, To think they would even be better by then for the sequel because they just keep evolving. Those guys at WETA are just at the top of their game. And just as a writing process, even if there isn’t a sequel, I got to see how Jim crafts his movies and stories. He outlines out several pictures just to let you know what to include in the first one and what not to include and what’s not necessary. There are so many mangas and so many places we can go that it would be pretty easy to come up with a second step.”

    Alita Battle Angel is available today to purchase digitally on 4-K/UHD/Dolby Vision/HDR/Dolby Atmos

    $19.99 on iTunes and vudu.

    Best deal is the Disc plus Digital from vudu.
    $29.99 and you get the 4K/3D/Blu Ray combo on release day and you get the digital copy immediately to watch today.

    I sampled it and it looks and sounds tremendous. Tons of extras too. And MA compatible.

    Thanks for the heads-up Tino!

    EDIT: Just checked Vudu and unless I'm missing it, there is no specific mention of 3D in the disc description, However, I assume that the 4K UHD/3D/Blu-ray/Digital combo will be the only 4K disc release that's available for this title. There will be no 4K UHD that does NOT include the 3D Blu-ray.

    I just picked it up, although I didn't notice that the "fine print" states "Your disc order will be fulfilled by Walmart. Expect delivery on or before 10/2/2019." That's over two MONTHS past the street date. Hopefully it'll arrive sooner.

    I was tempted but ultimately decided not to. I just know that I'm not going to watch the 2D digital copy while I'm waiting for the 3D disc, so might as well wait.

    I thought about it too, but like Josh, I'll just wait on my BB order.

    It's not worth it for me for this particular title - the 3D aspect is really the only part of the movie that appealed to me, and I'm not completely sure that I'm going to purchase it at all. I see on the fine print that the Vudu disc-to-digital purchase is non-refundable, and since I'm not even sure I want to own this, it's not a good move for me right now.

    That said, I think Vudu's pre-orders are a great idea and I'm amazed that no other retailer (like Amazon) has jumped to compete with this service. For a 2D movie that I was definitely going to purchase on disc anyway, this would be a no-brainer.

    Just finished it. Wife LOVED it! Looked and sounded amazing on iTunes in 4K/Dolby Atmos.
