Christopher Nolan films are made for 4K Blu-ray. Available December 19th, seven of the acclaimed director’s films will hit the ultra-high definition platform. Each will be available individually and also collected in a huge box set. This will include all three films in his Dark Knight trilogy: Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises. The other four films will be The Prestige, Inception, Interstellar, and this past summer’s Dunkirk. The set of all seven films will set you back $149.99.
Nolan had this to say about the 4K format:
“4K Blu-ray with HDR is an incredibly exciting new home video format that allows a much closer recreation of viewing the original film print. The deeper color palette comes closer to matching the analogue colors of film and we’ve restored the original theatrical mixes for this release. If you can’t rewatch these films in the theater, this is the best experience you can have in your own home.”
The three Batman films will also be sold together for $70.99. That release includes 4K Blu-ray with the feature films in 4K with HDR, Blu-ray discs of the three films in hi-definition, bonus Blu-ray discs with behind-the-scenes content and special features, and a digital copy of the films. The same can be said for all seven individual release and the seven-film box set.
Dunkirk is the only one of these I have not seen multiple times. I actually have not seen that one yet. The rest can be considered modern masterpieces, depending on your tastes. Curiously missing here is Memento. Does that mean Warner can no longer release that one? It kind of sucks that it is not joining these seven films. Other than that, these are all must-owns in the format.
All seven films and the box sets hit stores on December 19th. You can preorder them here.
