The delightfully wickedly hilarious and ultra-violent WWII revenge fantasy Inglourious Basterds is coming to 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray on October 12th from Universal Home Video
Unfortunately, not a lot of technical information was included in the press release. So we don't know if this is getting a Dolby Vision pass, or an Atmos upgrade or anything of the like. We've reached out for clarification so as soon as we know we'll pass that info along.
We do know it's coming packed with bonus features and the current planned release date of October 12th. As of now we haven't seen any hint of any retailer exclusives or SteelBook options yet, but we'll keep our eyes peeled and let you know ASAP.
