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. We are already rolling up on October (2019) and don’t worry, there’s another batch of new releases coming to the UHD format — here are the ones I’m looking forward to the most.
Please note that these are my personal favorites… but did you notice that this month is stacked with re-releases? Not only do we get what’s listed below, but also Frozen, Zombieland, Hellboy, Charlie’s Angels and American Gangster. UHD-wise there are three new releases in Spider-Man: Far From Home, Toy Story 4 & The Lion King.
Outside of that, there are also three releases that come in the Blu-ray format just in-time for the horror Halloween season. Those include; Midsommar (October 8th,) Annabelle Comes Home (October 8th,) and the acclaimed The Haunting of Hill House series (October 15th.) I was really hoping Midsommar would drop in 4K, hopefully it’s in the works and will come in the future.

Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy & Ant-Man (October 1, 2019)
Yea, more Marvel, Marvel and Marvel. It’s self explanatory at this point! This final string of releases will mean that every single movie in the MCU will have a 4K UHD disc. Furthermore, this confirms that they will have all my money and I won’t have to dip in for more.
