'Back to the Future', 'Jaws', 'Top Gun', more coming to UHD Blu-ray

13 Feb 2020 | Rasmus Larsen |

Classics and modern classics such as Back to the Future, Top Gun, Full Metal Jacket, Dune, The Elephant Man, and Basic Instinct are coming to UHD Blu-ray this year, according to a report by The Digital Bits.

UHD Blu-rays for 2020 & 2021

The Digital Bits has, based on its sources, provided a major update on confirmed and unconfirmed catalog films coming to UHD Blu-ray discs in 2020 and 2021. Many of the releases remain unconfirmed by the studios but the news should excite film buffs. Paramount is planning to release Top Gun (1986), War of the Worlds (2005), and Days of Thunder (1990) this summer. It is reportedly also working on the classic Star Trek movies but it will take time. Warner Bros. is planning to release Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket (1987) as well as Sherlock Holmes (2009) and Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, likely in June 2020. A Clockwork Orange (1971) should arrive sometime next year. Universal is expected to release 47 Ronin (2013) in April, the Back to the Future trilogy, Spartacus, Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds and Spielberg’s Jaws this summer, and David Lynch's Dune (1984) later this year.

UHD Blu-rays in 2020

Disney has confirmed that the remaining Pixar catalog titles, A Bug’s Life, Up, Wall-E, Monsters, Inc. and Monsters University, will arrive on UHD Blu-ray in March 2020, in addition to both versions of Beauty and the Beast. You may have already heard that Studio Canal has confirmed plans to release The Elephant Man (1980), Breathless (1960), Basic Instinct (1992), Total Recall (1990), Serpico (1973), Flash Gordon (1980), and Highlander (1986) in 4K later in 2020.

There is a lot to look forward to in 2020 and we expect most, if not all, of these to be available on both UHD Blu-ray and online through storefronts such as iTunes. - Source: The Digital Bits
