ultra_hd_blu-ray_logo copyThis database contains all the information on announced UltraHD Blu-ray titles with as many details as we know. Information it taken from press releases, the IMDb, and other sources. Hopefully this will let you make better informed purchase decisions when you go to updates your titles to UltraHD. Of  course to watch any of these you’ll need a new UltraHD Blu-ray player like the $400 Samsung UBD-K8500 that is out now.

Allegiant (2016)

Original Format(s): ARRIRAW (3.4K), ALEXA 65

Master Format: 4K

Features: Dolby Atmos, Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date: July 12, 2016

Notes: Allegiant was shot on 3.4K and 6.5K resolution ARRI cameras, with a 4K master and Dolby Atmos soundtrack. The UltraHD Blu-ray release should be very high quality based on those sources.

Allied UltraHD Blu-ray (2016)

Original Format(s): Redcode RAW (6K)

Master Format: 4K

Features: Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date: February 28, 2017

Notes: While the soundtrack details aren't available yet, the sources for the film are 6K and 8K resolution with color grading and a final digital intermediate done at 4K resolution. VFX are apparently only done at 3K resolution, but overall this should be a fantastic looking film.

Angels & Demons (2009)

Original Format(s): 35mm

Master Format: 4K

Features: Dolby Atmos, Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date: October 11, 2016

Notes: Shot on 35mm but with a 4K Digital Intermediate, it should benefit from UHD resolution but with a fine film grain likely to be present.

Argo (2012)

Original Format(s): ARRIRAW (2.8K), 35mm

Master Format: 4K

Features: Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date: December 6, 2016

Notes: Argo was shot on a wide variety of elements, including 8mm, 16mm, 35mm, and 2.8K Alexa cameras in order to capture the look and feel of Iran in 1980. A 4K digital intermediate should allow the full look and detail for all of these to come through on UltraHD Blu-ray.

Arrival UltraHD Blu-ray (2016)

Original Format(s): ARRIRAW (2.8K)

Master Format: 2K

Features: Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date: February 14, 2017

Notes: Despite being one of the most praised films of 2016, Arrival features a 2K digital intermediate and no Atmos or DTS:X soundtrack.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)

Original Format(s): ARRIRAW (3.4K), 35mm

Master Format: 4K

Features: Dolby Atmos, Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date: July 19, 2016

Notes: Batman v Superman is shot on a wide variety of sources, including 16mm, 35mm, IMAX, and ARRIRAW 3.4K. According to an interview with the cinematographer (http://www.theasc.com/ac_magazine/April2016/ClashTitans/page4.php) the 35mm sources were scanned at 2K and the IMAX sources at 8K, with final mastering done at 4K. So it might be a mix of quality throughout the UltraHD Blu-ray version.

Battleship UltraHD Blu-ray (2012)

Original Format(s): Super 35

Master Format: 2K

Features: DTS:X, Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date: January 17, 2017

Notes: Shot on Super35 with a 2K DI, the biggest improvement here is likely the DTS:X soundtrack. As a visual effects heavy film, the CGI will probably be less realistic with the higher resolution of UHD.

Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk UltraHD Blu-ray (2016)

Original Format(s): F65 RAW (4K)

Master Format: 4K

Features: Dolby Atmos, Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date: February 14, 2017

Notes: Billy Lynn was shot in native 4K, but also shot at 120 frames per second instead of the usual 24. Since that is beyond current UltraHD displays, the disc is only at 60 frames per second, but is still the only UHD title to offer that. With a 4K source, 4K digital intermediate, and an Atmos soundtrack it should look and sound fantastic. The main question is will have 2.5x as many frames as other films lead to worse compression?

Central Intelligence (2016)

Original Format(s): ARRIRAW (2.8K)

Master Format: 2K

Features: Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date: September 27, 2016

Notes: Central Intelligence only has a 2.8K master with a 2K digital intermediate and an unknown audio format, so it's unlikely to get much benefit from UltraHD.

Concussion (2015)

Original Format(s): ARRIRAW (3.4K)

Master Format: 2K

Features: Dolby Atmos, Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date: March 29, 2016

Notes: Given the small amount of CGI in Concussion it is possible they go back to the original 3.4K elements instead of using the 2K master, but that is uncertain at this time.

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000)

Original Format(s): 35mm

Master Format: 4K

Features: Dolby Atmos, Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date: October 18, 2016

Notes: There is a 4K master available, though the UltraHD version that you can stream on Netflix is very soft. Unsure if it's the same master, or if that is just related to Netflix compression. Updated Atmos soundtrack could be very impressive.

Deadpool (2016)

Original Format(s): ARRIRAW (3.4K)

Master Format: 4K

Features: Dolby Atmos, Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date:

Notes: Shot mostly on ARRIRAW in the 3.4K open gate format. Visual effects were delivered at 4K resolution, and the entire film was finished and graded for 4K HDR. So the UltraHD Blu-ray should take full advantage of the format.

Master Format: 2K

Features: Dolby Atmos, Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Original Format(s): ARRIRAW (2.8K)

Master Format: 2K

Features: Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date: July 12, 2016

Notes: The Blu-ray has an Atmos soundtrack, but final details on the UHD release aren't available yet. Hopefully the soundtrack is carried over but it has a 2K digital intermediate.

Original Format(s): ARRIRAW (3.4K), Redcode RAW (6K)

Master Format: 2K

Features: Dolby Atmos, Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date: September 27, 2016

Notes: While using 3.4K and 6K elements, the UHD Blu-ray only uses a 2K digital intermediate.

Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014)

Original Format(s): Redcode RAW

Master Format: 2K

Features: Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date: March 1, 2016

Notes: Samsung has been using clips from Exodus to demonstrate WCG and HDR for over a year now. Noticeably the 4K image makes the visual effects look much less real, so likely they are done at 2K resolution. IMDB indicates that the Redcode RAW used for this is at 5K resolution.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them UltraHD Blu-ray (2016)

Original Format(s): ARRIRAW (3.4K)

Master Format: 4K

Features: Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date: April 11, 2017

Notes: Soundtrack details are unannounced but the source is 3,4K resolution and the digital intermediate was done at 4K so it should look good when released.

Buy From Amazon

Fantastic Four (2015)

Original Format(s): ARRIRAW (3.4K), ARRIRAW (2.8K)

Master Format: 2K

Features: Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date: March 1, 2016

Notes: Waiting for full details from studio. Original elements are less than 4K resolution so final will be upscaled. Unsure of CGI resolution but with a 2K master a good chance it is only 2K.

Master Format: 2K

Features: DTS:X, Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Ghostbusters (1984)

Original Format(s): 35mm

Master Format: 4K

Features: Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date: June 7, 2016

Notes: Ghostbusters was part of the "Mastered in 4K" Blu-ray series for Sony, so likely a new transfer was done for that from the original 35mm elements. UltraHD Blu-ray release should then offer benefits over the original Blu-ray versions.

Ghostbusters (2016) (2016)

Original Format(s): ARRIRAW (2.8K)

Master Format: 2K

Features: Dolby Atmos, Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Notes: Only a 2.8K master and a 2K digital intermediate, so it won't get the full benefits of UltraHD.

Original Format(s): Redcode RAW (6K)

Master Format: 2K

Features: DTS:X, Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date: May 31, 2016

Notes: One of the first UHD Blu-ray titles with a DTS:X soundtrack, all of the VFX were done at 2K resolution so there will be lots of upscaling on this release most likely.

Goodfellas (1990)

Original Format(s): 35mm

Master Format:

Features: Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date: December 6, 2016

Notes: Unknown what the existing transfer for Goodfellas is, but being shot on 35mm and likely free of VFX work to redo means a new 4K scan should be possible to get the full UltraHD benefit. No mention of an updated Atmos or DTS:X soundtrack is mentioned.

Hacksaw Ridge UltraHD Blu-ray (2016)

Original Format(s): ARRIRAW (3.4K)

Master Format: 2K

Features: Dolby Atmos, Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date: February 21, 2017

Notes: Despite a 3.4K source and an Atmos soundtrack, we only get a 2K digital intermediate for one of the better reviewed movies from 2016.

Hancock (2008)

Original Format(s): Super 35, 35mm

Master Format: 4K

Features: Dolby Atmos, Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date:

Notes: Full details on soundtrack and other features not available yet. Originally shot on film with a 4K transfer so will be true 4K for live element. Since it was done in 2008 unlikely the CGI is available at a resolution higher than 2K.

Original Format(s): Super 35

Master Format: 2K

Features: Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date: December 6, 2016

Notes: Originally shot on 35mm, I Am Legend would really benefit if an updated 4K scan was done, but no mention of that is made in the press materials. Also no indication that there will be an updated soundtrack, just that it's in 4K with HDR.

Independence Day (1996)

Original Format(s): 35mm

Master Format:

Features: DTS:X, Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date: June 7, 2016

Notes: According to the notes from Fox, this will be loaded up with almost all the extras from past Blu-ray versions and it includes a new DTS:X soundtrack. There is no mention of if there is a new 4K scan done or not, but almost certainly the VFX are not being redone at higher resolution. With a new film coming out this might just be trying to capture that audience, but if it's a new scan it might be the best looking version of Independence Day we will get.

Independence Day Resurgence (2016)

Original Format(s): Redcode RAW (6K)

Master Format: 4K

Features: Dolby Atmos, Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date: October 18, 2016

Notes: With a 4K Digital Intermediate, Independence Day should look very good on UltraHD Blu-ray.

Master Format: 2K

Features: Dolby Atmos, Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Original Format(s): 35mm

Master Format: 2K

Features: Dolby Atmos, Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Jason Bourne (2016)

Original Format(s): ARRIRAW (2.8K), Super 35, Redcode RAW (6K)

Master Format: 4K

Features: DTS:X, Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date: December 6, 2016

Notes: While the visual effects are only done at 2K resolution, the rest of the image is a true 4K transfer with high resolution source elements and should benefit from UltraHD. It is also one of the few titles to support DTS:X instead of Dolby Atmos for surround.

John Wick UltraHD Blu-ray (2014)

Original Format(s): ARRIRAW (2.8K)

Master Format: 4K

Features: Dolby Atmos, Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date: February 7, 2017

Notes: Shot at 2.8K with an Arri Alexa and with a 4K digital intermediate, John Wick should offer improvements on the Blu-ray. The Atmos soundtrack on Blu-ray was already reference quality, and this looks to be a good 4K release timed to capitalize on the sequel.

Original Format(s): Super 35

Master Format: 2K

Features: Includes Blu-ray, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date: May 3, 2016

Original Format(s): ARRIRAW (2.8K), Redcode RAW

Master Format: 2K

Features: Dolby Atmos, Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date: October 4, 2016

Notes: Jupiter Ascending has a mish-mash of source formats, but in the end wound up with a 2K DI so lots of detail will be lost on this final release. The existing Blu-ray has Atmos, so HDR and WCG are what you'll gain from this release.

Master Format: 4K

Features: Dolby Atmos, Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Master Format: 2K

Features: Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date: May 31, 2016

Notes: Shot mostly on 35mm with a 2K intermediate, unlikely to see big improvements unless they went back and did a new scan at 4K for this release. More likely put out with slight color gamut and HDR improvement to coincide with the release of the sequel in theaters.

Master Format: 2K

Features: Dolby Atmos, Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date: August 9, 2016

Notes: Shot in 4K but mastered at 2K, this will be the first home release with an Atmos soundtrack. Also should benefit from HDR and WCG, since it's been used for demos of those features by Dolby, but likely not a new 4K master.

Release Date: October 4, 2016

Notes: Unfortunately saddled with a 2K DI, Pacific Rim has still looked fantastic in the Dolby Vision streaming version thanks to WCG and HDR. Despite a 5K source it's unlikely they went back and made a new transfer or 4K VFX, but it will still look and sound great.

Master Format: 2K

Features: Dolby Atmos, Includes Blu-ray, HDR

Release Date: January 17, 2017

Notes: Shot on an F35 which only offers 1080p resolution, Resident Evil: Afterlife should gain some benefit from better color subsampling and the extra shadow detail allowed with HDR content (press materials don't mention WCG and neither does the packaging). An Atmos soundtrack is also an improvement from prior versions.

Notes: Sicario was shot with ARRI Alexa XT cameras using the ARRIRAW format. This gives the original a native resolution of 3414x2198. The Alexa XT has 14+ stops of dynamic range so the UltraHD Blu-ray benefits from HDR. ARRIRAW captures video at 12-bits per pixel and supports wide color gamut.

The Bourne Identity (2002)

Original Format(s): Super 35

Master Format:

Features: DTS:X, Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date: December 6, 2016

Notes: Originally shot on 35mm, no details on the format of the digital intermediate used for this release are currently available. If they went back to make a 4K DI, it could look fantastic. If they're just upscaling an existing 2K one then it will improve, but not as much as it could.

Master Format: 2K

Features: DTS:X, Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date: December 6, 2016

Notes: Shot on Super 35mm with a 2K digital intermediate, The Bourne Legacy will benefit from a DTS:X audio track and a likely increase in detail. It won't be as good as if they did a native 4K transfer, though.

Release Date: December 6, 2016

Notes: Like the first film, this was shot on 35mm but is known to have a 2K digital intermediate. Hopefully they went back to make a 4K scan, but if not it will offer some improvements over the prior Blu-ray and has a DTS:X audio track.

Release Date: March 1, 2016

Notes: Source formats are 4K or 6K but master is done at 2K. This likely means all visual effects will be at 2K resolution while the live elements will be true 4K resolution. Color grading and HDR are also being done using the original 6K resolution elements for the best overall quality.

Original Format(s): ARRIRAW (2.8K), Redcode RAW

Master Format: 4K

Features: Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date: March 1, 2016

Notes: According to IMDB the source format for the visual effects is 5K resolution, so Maze Runner might be a true 4K image aside from shots done at 2.8K with the Arri Alexa. However that might just be the source for the live elements and the VFX were still rendered at 2K resolution. A Red Epic was also used at 5K resolution. Atmos and Auro surround tracks exist for the theater, but a home format has not been announced.

    Kind of disgusting to sell 4k UHD discs that are just upscaled

  • dvdmike

    Good round up, Roger Deakins has confirmed he has personally graded Sicario for UHD HDR

  • Jonathan Goeldner

    when when when? will the audio specs will be revealed – I’m assuming a number of these releases will have Dolby Atmos as exclusives over it’s bluray counterparts.

    • Hopefully soon. Though I’m not making any assumptions on the audio tracks since there have been many theatrical Atmos titles that didn’t get Atmos on the Blu-ray release. Hopefully this isn’t the case, but it could be.

  • daniel

    A lot of upscales…

  • don

    I’m sure “The Smurfs 2” will seal the deal for most of us

  • wilko

    If you want more information how the movies was done, cameras, editing softwares, source formats… you can check this wonderfull site “Shot on what ?” https://shotonwhat.com/ :)

    • That is a very nice looking site. It doesn’t have every title in there, but it has a lot of info on most of them. Thanks!

  • Simon

    “The Martian” unfortunately is only DTS-HD MA 7.1 and not Dolby Atmos. Fox has not authored any UHD-BD in the advanced audio formats as yet. Which really stinks and takes away a big upgrade incentive.

    • Fixed. The initial title info that Fox sent out indicated that it would have Atmos, but apparently not.

  • Danny C. Courtney

    Great source of info, will check here before I purchase any 4K UHD Blu ray discs. How about some more reviews on the list.

  • Zo

    Xmen not on list?? Is it filmed in 4K?

    • They’ve said X-Men: Days of Future Past is coming, but there are no details on it yet. The same for Pacific Rim and a few other titles. X-Men was shot in 2.8K ARRIRAW with a 2K Digital Intermediate, so it it’s a true 4K film.

  • Danny C. Courtney

    How about more frequent updates to list.

  • Danny C. Courtney

    Haven’t seen any updates in weeks!!!!

    • Sorry about that, I was moving and couldn’t get it updated in a timely manner. Most titles should be there now with the exceptions of those that have been soft-announced (Suicide Squad, Star Trek, Jason Bourne, etc…) that have no release date or specs yet.

  • Danny C. Courtney

    THANKS for the updates, awesome!!!
