These initial titles will be followed by selected new releases available day-and-date with their initial home entertainment releases and a selection of catalogue titles throughout the year including Man of Steel and Pacific Rim.
The Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack will include an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc with the feature film in 4K with high dynamic range (HDR), a Blu-ray disc with the feature film and special features in HD, and a Digital HD version of the film.
