Best 4K films
Arrow Films releases its latest 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray catalogue release this week, a double set of Demons I and II. It’s a limited release, and stock is already selling out, so you may need to move sharpish.
Its releases tend to be premium-priced, so it may be worth taking advantage of a limited pre-order discount available on its future 4K package for Battle Royale that it has planned. It’s only a fiver off, but that looks like being the best you’re going to get (stock is likely to be on the short side for that one, too).
If you’re in the mood to preorder a collectable release, Warner Bros has announced that 1989’s Batman is getting the 4K Titans Of Cult steelbook treatment. Keep refreshing to check the stock of that one…
Buy it: Demons 1&2 Limited Edition on 4K | £69.99 from Amazon
