    Oppenheimer Theatrical Trailer

    The other half of the iconic Barbenheimer summer theater phenomena finally comes home to 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray November 21st. 

    We're building listings right now but here's the full press release for all the details - frustratingly it looks like Nolan is keeping to DTS-HD MA 5.1 instead of opting for a bigger more explosive audio format like Atmos or DTS:X 

    So far we haven't seen any retailer exclusives pop up yet, that traditional Best Buy SteelBook now is a big question mark given the limited sell through timeframe with their exit from disc movies. Oppen Heimer isn't up for pre-order yet but we imagine it will be soon. We also don't have Blu-ray cover art yet so for now we've only built out our 4K listing but rest assured for the 1080p people out there, a standard Blu-ray is coming too.
