There are no signs of our love for 4K Ultra HD abating at STACK, in fact we’re getting more excited about the format every month. Why? So many great new releases – and so many classic movies looking better than we’ve ever seen them before. We intend to keep you bang up-to-date with all the new release info, so here’s our 4K November 2017 release round-up…

 

4K Ultra HD of the month

4K November 2017 - Baby Driver

Baby Driver
Release date: November 15

It may have got caught at the traffic lights, so it’s releasing two weeks after the DVD and Blu-ray, but it’s worth the wait. Cars may be important in Edgar Wright’s action-fuelled heist drama, but the music is just as critical. An all-encompassing Dolby Atmos track will accompany the HDR-infused upscaled 2K vision, and reports from overseas suggest that it’s a cracker. Check out STACK’s movie review here.

What other new releases are hitting 4K Ultra HD in October?

4K November 2017 - Westworld

Westworld: Season One – The Maze
Release date: November 8

The first TV series to make it to 4K Ultra HD in Australia, we hope it’s a trend that takes off. Michael Crichton’s collision of the future and the past comes as a three-disc set, toting 2K upscaled transfers with HDR enhancement, and a specially-produced Dolby Atmos mix for each episode.

4K November 2017 - Atomic Blonde

Atomic Blonde
Release date: November 15

Charlize Theron exercises her action muscles again, in what could be loosely described as a female-led take on John Wick – and we mean that as a compliment. The looks come via an upscaled 2K transfer with HDR (or Dolby Vision if all of your equipment supports it), while the sounds come via a DTS:X mix. You can read our movie review right here.

War for the Planet of the Apes

War for the Planet of the Apes
Release date: November 15

They’re finally making a monkey out of 4K – well, they’re finally released the third movie in the trilogy. The brutal conclusion to this Apes series, this one features another HDRified upscaled 2K transfer, along with a Dolby Atmos mix that, if it’s anything like it was in the cinema, will sound awesome. Our movie review is able to be read here.

But the monkey business doesn’t stop there, as with all three movies now available in 4K Ultra HD there’s a handy trilogy pack releasing on the same day – and it’s exclusive to JB Hi-Fi. They all feature identically-specced transfers to the new one, with Rise of the Planet of the Apes having DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 sound and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes upgraded to 7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio.

The Dark Tower

Stephen King’s been as big as ever this year, and this fantasy adventure starring Idris Elba comes to Ultra HD with a suitably big, pure 4K transfer. Audio duties, meanwhile, are handled by a Dolby Atmos mix. Want to read our movie review? Just click here.

4K November 2017 - The Hitman's Bodyguard

The Hitman’s Bodyguard
Release date: November 29

We always love a decent good buddy/bad buddy flick, and The Hitman’s Bodyguard definitely fits the bill. Thrill to Deadpool and Nick Fury being at each others’ throats for an entire action blast, and with an almost full 4K transfer to boot (if you want to get technical, it’s 3.4K upscaled to 4K). Meanwhile, Dolby Atmos gets the gig for sound. Our movie review is readable right about here.

Back catalogue on 4K Ultra HD in November

12 back catalogue releases. 12! The world of 4K Ultra HD discs is really hotting up at the pointy end of 2017. It’ll be a lot of watching, but we aim to have reviews up as close to release as possible for each of these 4K newbies.

4K November 2017 - Spider-Man

Spider-Man 1, Spider-Man 2, Spider-Man 3
Release date: November 1

All three of the Tobey Maguire Spidey flicks swing in on the one day, and they’ve all been given the treatment that our friendly neighbourhood protector deserves. Each of the movies boasts a full 4K transfer, and each has a remixed Dolby Atmos soundtrack to sling the sounds all around.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Release date: November 1

We always thought that Jim Carrey a rather nice chap, but then he decided to ruin Christmas for the pleasant folk of Whoville. OK, so of course he was acting as Dr Seuss’ nasty old Grinch, and good news is that Universal have been anything but stingy with this release. Another pure 4K presentation, the wildly colourful experience is set to look divine – and sound great with a new DTS:X audio track, too.

A Few Good Men
Release date: November 15

Wow, it’s been 25 years since Jack Nicholson dropped that immortal line, “You can’t handle the truth!” To celebrate the anniversary, A Few Good Men springs to attention with a new full-4K Ultra HD transfer that’s accompanied by a new Dolby Atmos audio track. You’ll likely feel as if Jack’s right there in the room with you. Eep! Read our thoughts on the release in our review, here.

The Bridge On the River Kwai
Release date: November 15

The anniversaries continue, with David Lean’s WWII epic celebrating 60 years since release. It’s not every day that a film of this vintage comes to 4K, and it’s a move to be applauded (more please!) A full-4K transfer, this also receives a fresh Dolby Atmos soundtrack that we can’t wait to hear.

Harry Potter
Release date: November 22

In a move that wasn’t entirely logical, the last four Harry Potter flicks came out back in March. Now the first four have caught up and, like the previous quartet, they all boast 2K upscaled transfers accompanied by DTS:X sound. If you didn’t happen to get those earlier releases, you can grab all eight movies in one neat little box set the same day.

Men in Black
Release date: November 29

There’s no stopping the anniversary party, as it’s 20 years since Men in Black first brought its X-Files-inspired brilliance to our screens. We don’t know whether it’s alien tech that gave us three pure 4K transfers from the original camera negatives here, but we don’t care. Coupled with new Dolby Atmos audio, we can’t wait to do a triple treat binge with these.

Transformers
Release date: November 29

More than meets the eye, four times and all in pure new 4K transfers? Yes please! Michael Bay’s effects-laden action explosions are sure to look the part with such detailed transfers, and with newly-created Dolby Atmos sound they’re sure to sound spectacular as well.
