I doubt they will go back and redo the effects in 4k as that would cost millions of dollars. They'll just upconvert the 2k or 2.8k DI's as they have with other supposed 4k masters... unless a movie's film elements solely rest in the "analog" celluloid world, which would then allow for a fresh, new 4k master without upconverting anything.
