No 4K Ultra HD For Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment's Feb. 28 Home Entertainment Launch Of Doctor Strange

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment made its first product announcement for the New Year and it follows pretty much in the footsteps of those from 2016 … there is still no 4K Ultra HD commitment for the release to the home entertainment market of its recent theatrical blockbusters.

The latest example is writer/director Scott Derrickson’s latest addition to the Marvel Studios pantheon of “super heroes,” Doctor Strange.   This film seemed like a natural for 4K Ultra HD, but consumer choices on Feb. 28 will be limited to a stand-alone DVD and a pair of Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack SKUs (one with and one without a 3D viewing option).

The ARR works out to 116 days and domestic ticket sales from the film’s pre-Thanksgiving launch currently stand at a robust $230.3 million.

The Blu-ray editions feature commentary from filmmaker Scott Derrickson (Deliver Us from Evil, Sinister, The Day the Earth Stood Still, etc.), plus a gag reel, deleted scenes, a short film titled “Team Thor: Part 2” and five featurettes — “A Strange Transformation,” “Strange Company,” “The Fabric of Reality,” “Across Time and Space” and “The Score-cerer Supreme.”
