Release date: July 24

We’re not sure about you, but we wouldn’t want to stick the boot into the big red guy. Luckily, some braver souls than us have given him the reboot treatment. Firing up with a Dolby Vision-enhanced pure 4K picture and full-on Dolby Atmos sound, this treat for the senses is more closely based on Mike Mignola’s original comics than Guillermo del Toro’s very ace movies of last decade. Extra features included on the 4K disc itself include a meaty 70-plus minute look at the making of the film. Read our cinema review right here.
