Heat 4K Remaster Release Date

There’s some good news for the greatest movie of all time.  A new 2 disc Blu-Ray is being released this year, now available to pre-order on Amazon, for a release date of May 9th.  This new version is also available in steel book format, with what I would describe as downright sweet artwork.  Minimalist, just like Michael Mann would probably approve of.

But it’s not just another release, the movie is also being restored;

The Academy celebrates Michael Mann’s Heat on the big screen with a new 4K restoration and Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Michael Mann and other cast and crew in a conversation moderated by Christopher Nolan.

Format: Heat will be presented in a new 4K DCP, restored by Stefan Sonnenfeld (Company 3) and Michael Mann.

And apparently it’s a very good print at that;

The 4k Blu-ray of HEAT is one of the greatest audio visual restorations I have seen/heard.
Should arrive this fall.

A little late, but better than not at all.  Now what I’d really like to see is the movie released in UHD format.

    I don’t get this 4K stuff, plus who has this kind of setup in their home, and the money to justify it? I’ve never met a single person, hell, I’ve still only ever met half a dozen people who bothered with Blu Ray. I’ll stick with my special edition 2 disc DVD of Heat.

    What’s the problem big guy? I have 4K in my home, why would I want a crap dvd copy. I’m loving my 4K and hope to get Heat on 4K. Does this make me a snob? or am I just a true cinema buff.
