The DVD was released a month ago and I haven't found anything online to indicate that a Blu Ray is forthcoming.
Yeah, this movie is on my wish list on iTunes for purchase. What's interesting, it's a 4K/HDR digital stream/download that I'm waiting to drop in price to $9.99The DVD was released a month ago and I haven't found anything online to indicate that a Blu Ray is forthcoming. Not a good sign when a recent major studio release (and prominent Oscar contender) is released on DVD only.
How common is it to have a placeholder with an actual fully designed cover not get released in the format/s displayed within the cover, though? This isn't quite the same deal as a first draft placeholder with the "No image available" disclaimer.
I'd say the studio simply made a last minute reversal in not issuing a Blu-ray version. It's happened before, just never with as prominent a new release as this.
It strikes me as a bit presumptive for Amazon to assume release in all three of those formats, although until recently, digital was the one that would be left out. No wonder so many consumers get confused. Just my opinion.That's not "fully designed cover art". Amazon just took the movie poster and put it in a mock-up cover...
I wanted to buy this one blind, and went to the local Wally World to look for it. The DVD was on the shelf- no BluRay. No purchase made. I have decided that I’ll buy new titles in BluRay only
(or a combo-pack). I hope this does eventually come out in the superior format so I can see it.
It might receive a blu-ray release in another territory.

In 4K/HDR on iTunes, Vudu and Movies Anywhere as my iTunes purchase for $9.99 propagated to those other services in 4K/HDR.I haven't bought the DVD yet. However, I'm not opposed to doing so. I do want there to be a Blu-ray release, but if you want the movie and you deny it to yourself because it's not in HD, you're only really hurting yourself. Fox isn't going to suffer because they don't make your sale.
That being said, you can still see the film in HD. It's available for rent (or purchase) in HD on digital services, so you can rent it in HD if you want to see it once. Don't let yourself miss out on the movie because of this. Buy it or don't buy it, but you should definitely see it if you're interested in it. It's a great film and doesn't deserve to be punished because it's not in HD.
Man, I'm far from tech savvy so if a dummy like myself can utilize streaming than anybody can do so.I’ve said in other threads that I ain’t tech savvy, so I’ve never streamed anything (I make a living driving big rigs, so when I have down time, it’s easy for me to turn on my disc player and hit the open key- I don’t really have the time to learn stuff due to catching up on rest).
