War of the Worlds (1953) UHD

This is on Vudu in UHD Dolby Vision and DD+ for $12... I haven't seen anything about a UHD disc release. Anyone know anything?

Vudu has a sale on it. It's $24.99 ($7.99 rental) on Amazon Prime. It's on iTunes also. UHD version is a digital only release. No word on physical media.

Make me grow brainiac fingers, but with more hair!

I have it UHD HDR version on Kaleidescape very nice looking title. Interestingly, the threads supporting the machines, visible on the DVD, have been removed.

Thanks for the heads-up on this.

The HD version was shown on TCM last week and looked gorgeous. I assume this is the same transfer.

Not sure, but I can say that it looks really, really good!

Also - that opening title sequence was crazy bright/colorful. I'm not prone to seizures, but if I were...

There is a decent HD version of this that Paramount never put out on Blu-ray, there was a period a few years back when Paramount and Lionsgate starting offering titles in HD but not on disc. They weren't bad movies but they were moving to blockbuster titles mainly for disc release.

If you have the Movies ! channel/sub-channel on your OTA and/or cable system this will run on 7-27-19. I can't vouch for what the quality will be but you can't argue with the cost. Something tells me I'll pick the 4k version from the iTunes store eventually.
