Life of Pi & Maze Runner to be among first HDR movies

18 Jun 2015 | Rasmus Larsen |

It is still difficult to find 4K movies and near impossible to find HDR (high dynamic range) movies but at least we know that Hollywood is working on it. 20th Century Fox has announced that 'Life of Pi', 'Kingsman: The Secret Service', 'The Maze Runner' and 'Exodus: Gods and Kings' will be their first four movies to be released in 4K HDR.

Four films - more on the way

20th Century Fox has already confirmed that they will release all future movies in 4K UHD that has four times as many pixels as HD and HDR (high dynamic range) that offers brighter whites, deeper blacks, and more picture details in each end.

The first four titles will be available on the M-Go service this year as digital downloads that you can store on a secure and encrypted hard drive connected to a TV. M-Go is not available worldwide. The same four titles will also be available on Ultra HD Blu-ray later this year. The first UHD BD players are expected to hit the market in late 2015.

The first movie available to watch in 4K HDR to the public is Disney's Tomorrowland. However, you will need to locate one of the new “Dolby Cinemas”.

Fox is one of the first studios to announce plans for 4K HDR movies. In addition, Warner has announced 7 Dolby Vision titles and Netflix will start streaming originals in 4K HDR later this year. To enjoy 4K HDR you also need a HDR-enabled TV.
