Lionsgate’s first UHD Blu-ray discs will be available on March 1, 2016, coinciding with the release of the first UHD Blu-ray players – more specifically Samsung’s player.

Sicario, The Last Witch Hunter, Ender's Game and The Expendables 3 will all be released in 4K resolution and HDR (high dynamic range). To enjoy HDR you need a TV with HDR support, and preferably one of the “UHD Premium” certified models.

Sicario, Ender's Game and The Expendables 3 will include a Dolby Atmos audio track, whereas The Last Witch Hunter will offer DTS:X. Both formats are so-called “object-based” audio formats. To enjoy Atmos and DTS:X you need a sound system with native support.

- “These four films are uniquely suited to show consumers how incredible this new format can be with a truly immersive experience complementing the new hardware capabilities,” said Ron Schwartz, President of Home Entertainment.
