Screen cap of original e-mail message:
And when they have Lionsgate titles on sale you get the same type of e-mail from Lionsgate.

Warner is one of the studios they partner with but I don't think they own them...

Just picked up Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home in HD for $4.99 and Sweet Home Alabama in HD for $7.99 on iTunes.

That’s correct, the director’s cut was created in the SD realm about twenty years ago.
Yes, The budget Paramount gave Robert Wise and his team was very limited, so they could only afford to render the new visual effects in standard definition.

I've often wondered whether the Director's Edition would have gotten an HD or even 4K upgrade when TNG was recreated in HD, had Paramount and CBS not been split into two separate companies.

Picked up the asphalt jungle for $4.99.
Looking forward to it. I had tried to get a used criterion Blu ray copy on eBay and hadn’t had any luck.

I have never seen the film and can’t wait to watch it tonight.

the Star Trek set is tempting if we know it will / could be upgraded if the films are 4k in the future?

I have all of the older films on blu ray. So I’ll pass for now.

For those of you who are fans (and you know who you are!), iTunes has Sucker Punch Extended Cut in 4K available for $7.99 today.
was your comment a sucker punch?

ha! I’ve never seen this one but remember how it was as controversial as the last Jedi.

I would be one of those, and I'm not getting into another argument about the movie. It was on sale previously. It looks great.
