While Disney fusses over whether to commit to the newly-launched 4K Ultra HD format, Shout! Factory is quick to follow-up on its June 7 entry — Journey to Space — with two new 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray Combo Pack selections that are tabbed for release on July 12.
The first of these is documentary filmmaker Mike Slee’s spectacular Flight of the Butterflies. This 2012 IMAX presentation follows the Mexico to Canada migration trek of millions of Monarch butterflies in something of a storytelling mode — the footage captured is nothing short of breathtaking.
Teamed with it is documentary filmmaker Stephen Low’s Rocky Mountain Express — a magical journey through the Canadian Rocky Mountains for a look back in time at the history of Canada’s transcontinental railroad.
