It's funny, back before I knew what DNR was I thought Basic Instinct was one of the best-looking discs in my collection. Thanks to these forums over the years I've received a first class education in what film restoration actually should look like :)

I'm actually a tad bit concerned about this not being up to snuff. Hopefully Studiocanal's love affair with DNR isn't as serious as it was back in the early days of DVD. I don't have a whole lot of Studiocanal discs in my collection but I do know that their restoration work can and has been inconsistent. This one's a biggie so I hope it gets a great scan this time.

Studio Canal's "restorations" used to be more miss than hit, but they've been doing a lot better the last few years.

The "restorations" themselves (or "remasters," or whatever we're calling them) have been very good lately, but their encoding for disc can be a little iffy sometimes.

A message from Bill Hunt: "I’ve just learned from industry sources that there are currently no plans to release Basic Instinct on 4K disc here in the States. So if you want it, you’d better pre-order StudioCanal’s UK release here at Amazon.uk (or here at Zavvi US)."

This is kind of a wish washy statement, and i don’t really believe it won’t be released here, given the precedent with other SC/LG titles.

“No plans” could mean it just hasn’t been decided/detailef yet, or that his “source” isn’t privy to the info. Notice he didn’t say “it won’t be released in the US”.
