Mad Max: Fury Road Will be Among the First UHD 4K Blu-ray Releases

By Gerald Lynch on at

It was one of the most violently beautiful films of 2015, and now Oscar-bothering Mad Max: Fury Road is set to dazzle in 4K in our homes. George Millar's post-apocalyptic road movie has been announced ahead of CES 2016 as being among Warner Bros. first Ultra HD 4K Blu-ray titles.

Set to be released as part of an "initial launch" for the format early this year, it'll be joined by San Andreas, The Lego Movie and Pan. Warner aims to release 35 UHD Blu-ray titles in 2016, though only Man of Steel and Pacific Rim have been named as following on from the first wave of releases.

It's been a furiously long road to release for UHD Blu-ray, with the Blu-ray Disc Association only finalising its specification last summer, despite home 4K TV tech trickling into shops for a few years now. Warner's UHD Blu-ray discs will offer 4K resolution and HDR processing support for a better colour and contrast range, as well as Dolby Atmos sound for those that can afford to dot even more speakers around their home cinema set-up. Warner is also set to announce an expansion to its 4K streaming library this week, too.
