    Doctor Sleep is slated to hit theaters in the fall(November 8th in the USA) so it's a perfect time.

    I hope Warner upgrades the regular BD at the same time, like they did for 2001.

    I just rewatched Ready Player One last night where The Shining is memorably featured - I’m up for seeing this again.

    I'm sure they will. 'The Shining' is by far the best Stanley Kubrick film in my opinion. This may be the 4K disc to accelerate my purchase of a 4K projector.

    While Warners did have the new upgraded master on the Blu-Ray included with the 4K 2001 & THE MATRIX, unfortunately they did not wIth BLADE RUNNER, THE MATRIX RELOADED and THE MATRIX REVOLUTIONS. So here's hopin'...

    The Shining is a very good film, so this is great news. Another Kubrick film that in my opinion needs sprucing up is A Clockwork Orange- a
    masterpiece. I think the last BluRay release looks a bit soft, with bland colors. Maybe this one could be tweaked?

    I think Clockwork could look a little bit better, but most of the softness is inherent in the original photography.

    That is on the schedule in 4K Blu-Ray later this year as well.

    I'm starting to think we will get a Stanley Kubrick box set in 4K BD By Christmas. Still waiting to hear about Full Metal Jacket, and Eyes Wide Shut.

    Great news about 'The Shining'. Though three isn't a press release, The Digital Bits are reporting that according to retailer notifications, 'A Clockwork Orange' is in the works for 4K release later this year.

    I highly recommend last year's documentary Filmworker, about Leon Vitali and his role as the conservator of Kubrick's legacy. The transfers on the recent releases of Barry Lyndon and the 4K UHD of 2001 were made possible by his years of experience in checking colour timing on film prints for Kubrick, while at the same time being Kubrick's willing slave for 25 years. A new 4K of The Shining, supervised by him, will look superb.

    And the latest Sight & Sound features an interesting article on the graphic design of Kubrick's posters and film titles, including the original Saul Bass one for The Shining.

    I definitely won't be getting the Steelbook, because I think the regular cover (posted above) is absolutely gorgeous!

    I'm with you. That cover art is pretty sweet. If the steelbook featured the film's poster though, it would be a different story. I've always loved it.
