Not under Disney's current plans. Disney buying Fox was great for Marvel because it meant that X-Men and the Fantastic Four were returned to them, but this new policy is one of the many significant downsides of that deal.Reading this thread, am I to believe the Die Hard sequels will not be coming to 4k disc?
I get what you are saying. However, I am the only one in my family who would even care about 4K. My parents are currently in the next room over about to watch a movie that they recorded off of cable in pan and scan, edited for length and content, and with commercials. The fact that this is absolutely not how the filmmakers would like for their work to be seen or that it could look better is completely irrelevant to them. Tonight's movie is at least not something that I own, but they have in the recent past been watching movies that way which I have, and I've said, "I can go get the Blu-ray and put it on for you" and they've said, "No, we're watching this, it's fine." As long as that remains the case, I have no reason to believe that we will get a 4K setup. Of course, I would like one, but it's not worth the money if I am the only one who would utilize it, and Blu-ray still looks pretty terrific, so I can't complain.It might still be worthwhile getting 4K discs even if your current setup can't make much use of them.
I have a small handful of 4K titles which mostly come from recent steelbook releases, where I paid for the included 4K disc because I wanted the steelbook, but I still just use the Blu-ray disc that comes with it. I think I've got about 7 or 8 of these, and will be getting Back to the Future in October for the same reason. Otherwise, I don't believe that there is enough reason to believe that I would get to use them to justify future-proofing every title. Even Back to the Future, the new Blu-rays are going to be remastered too, so that gives me an improvement over the discs I already have. If it's a release where there's nothing new on the included Blu-ray, then I usually don't bother.
