Presumably with an eye toward aiding the forthcoming Tomb Raider, with Alicia Vikander in the lead, (or the other way ’round) Paramount has released their two Croft productions, Lara Croft Tomb Raider, and Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life in 4k.
The first film, released in 2001, and finished on film, while the subsequent in 2003, was a 2k DI.
Both are upgrades from the earlier Blu-rays, with the 2001 variant looking a bit more film-like, for obvious reasons, mostly grain structure.
Fun films that look superb in 4k.
One only concern was the Paramount logo hitting the screen, and appearing unnecessarily dark, which fortunately did not carry on into the feature.
Both are Dolby Vision, as well as standard issue HDR10.
