...and those releases were planned to coincide with the new Top Gun movie’s theatrical release. That they could tie those films to a major tentpole release as being a sort of “Tom Cruise action franchise” was probably a determining factor in green lighting those releases.
Yup! Made sense as a "Tom Cruise 4K Collection"! :)

The release of these Paramount films on digital 4K is still very confusing as to why it is not happening. If these were 4K titles I would be buying them digital. I can’t see how they would be much cost for the studio. However if they are holding them back for their streaming service as exclusives then it kind of makes more sense. And/or as it was suggested selling or leasing them to prime Amazon or Netflix.

Be careful what you wish for - I don't want the "restored" "To Catch a Thief" to replace the copy I have in my iTunes library ;)

sure. Just trying to understand what Paramount’s strategy is overall with this series of releases.

I have a feeling that when it comes to these types of things that's is less them having a "strategy" and more "we'll get to it when we get to it"

Good to see that Fatal Attraction is being offered in 4K digital.

king creole is the only other 4k digital release from the paramount presents series so far?

I’m curious to know if Airplane! Will also be offered in 4K digital.

Paramount’s video distribution is puzzling to understand.

As all of the titles in the presents series have been mastered in 4K, 4k digital releases seem logical to me. Yet only 2 are available so far?
