    One of the most beloved films ever to hit the silver screen will be celebrating its 70th anniversary on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray on April 26.  

    The classic musical romantic comedy stars Gene Kelly, Golden Globe Best Actor-Winner Donald O’Connor, Debbie Reynolds, Jean Hagen, Millard Mitchel and Cyd Charisse, and was directed and choreographed by Kelly and Stanley Donen (On the Town).

    In 1989, Singin' in the Rain was one of the first 25 films selected by the United States Library of Congress for preservation in the National Film Registry for being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant". The film ranked 10th on AFI’s 100 Years…100 Movies list, 16th on AFI’s 100 Years…100 Laughs list, 16th on AFI’s 100 Years…100 Passions list, “Singin’ In The Rain” was 3rd on AFI’s 100 Years…100 Songs list, and the film was number 1 on AFI’s Greatest Movie Musicals list.

    The remastered film showcases 4K resolution with High Dynamic Range (HDR) and although this release doesn't specify the soundtrack,we would hopefully assume that it comes with Dolby Atmos.

    The Matrix - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray announcement

    The next film in the epic science fiction saga stars Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, Jada Pinkett Smith and Neil Patrick Harris.  

    Lana Wachowski tries to resuscitate the genre-defining franchise that has been lying dormant for nearly two decades and sends it back down the rabbit hole with The Matrix Resurrections -- currently available for Premium Digital Ownership (or rental) on certain platforms and on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and Blu-ray on March 8.  In case you missed it, be sure to check out our theatrical review here.

    In The Matrix Resurrections,” return to a world of two realities: one, everyday life; the other, what lies behind it. To find out if his reality is a physical or mental construct, to truly know himself, Mr. Anderson (Keanu Reeves) will have to choose to follow the white rabbit once more. And if Thomas…Neo…has learned anything, it’s that choice, while an illusion, is still the only way out of—or into—the Matrix. Of course, Neo already knows what he has to do. But what he doesn’t yet know is the Matrix is stronger, more secure, and more dangerous than ever before. Déjà vu.
