My 4K UHD Collection is getting bigger as time goes by because more films are adapting to the format. I usually say “it continues to be an amazing time for film,” but this month and time is different. Theaters are shut down and the majority of the United States (including myself) are locked inside for safety.
What’s crazy is that during all the madness going on in the world, May (2020) brings a huge batch of releases! I don’t know if that’s good or bad for the market… I guess we will see. Hope everyone is staying safe! Follow below to see the ones I’m looking forward to the most.
There are a few releases to grab that arrive in the Blu-ray format; this includes The Lodge, Hansel & Gretel + The Rhythm Section on May 5th, Fantasy Island & The Photograph on May 12th + Emma & The Way Back on May 19th. Also, Paramount is re-releasing Fatal Attraction, To Catch A Thief & King Creole too!
Keep your eyes out for more of these releases as the month goes on.
