My 4K UHD Collection is continuing to grow and with more movies on the horizon adapting to the format — it continues to be an amazing time for film. The month of April (2019) brings another solid amount of new selections to the format — and here are the ones I’m looking forward to the most.
Please note that these are my personal favorites, there are still other 4K releases coming out in the month of April like The Kid Who Would Be King, Man on a Ledge, Hellboy, Hannibal & The Witch — not to mention some solid Blu-ray releases in Vice & Destroyer.
