District 9 Gets A 4k Blu-ray Release On October 13th

Neil Blomkamp's sci-fi classic District 9 is coming to 4K Blu-ray. One of the most-loved films of the 2000s, the disc will come loaded with special features, with all sorts of making of and behind the scenes featurettes available to watch, and something called Comic-Con Extravaganza, which sounds really interesting. This is one film that should look pretty stunning in 4K, as District 9 featured gorgeous cinematography by Trent Opaloch, who also worked on Blomkamp's Elysium, and on The Russo Brothers MCU films. You can see the cover for the release down below, along with all of the features and specs for the October 13th release.

District 9 4K Blu-ray Details

"From producer Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy) and director, Neill Blomkamp comes a startlingly original science fiction thriller that "soars on the imagination of its creators" (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone). With stunning special effects and gritty realism, the film plunges us into a world where the aliens have landed… only to be exiled to a slum on the fringes of Johannesburg. Now, one lone human discovers the mysterious secret of the extraterrestrial weapon technology. Hunted and hounded through the bizarre back alleys of an alien shantytown, he will discover what it means to be the ultimate outsider on your own planet."
