Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has officially announced plans to bring Denis Villeneuve’s film Blade Runner 2049 to Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray and Ultra HD Blu-ray from 16th January.
Starring Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Robin Wright, Ana de Armas and Dave Bautista, the film is set three decades after the events of the first film. A new blade runner, LAPD Officer K, unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard, a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.
The Ultra HD Blu-ray features 4K resolution with High Dynamic Range (HDR) and a wider color spectrum, offering audiences brighter, deeper, more lifelike colors for a home entertainment viewing experience like never before. The 4K Blu-ray and Blu-ray discs of Blade Runner 2049 will also feature a Dolby Atmos soundtrack remixed specifically for the home theatre environment to place audio anywhere in the room, including overhead.
All three Blu-ray versions come with a number of special features, including a look at the casting of the film’s roles, a feature about the design of the film’s setting, and much more.
