All right, we’ve got a rare Saturday post for you here at The Bits with your very first look at some great new 4K cover artwork, as well as word on a number of surprising new 4K Ultra HD titles that we know to be on the way from our studio, retail, and industry sources.

Paramount is also expected to release Suburbicon and Annihilation in early 2018. All of their Transformers films are now available in 4K for release on 12/5, and there’s a Transformers: 5-Movie Collection available for pre-order in the UK. Finally, we’re hearing that Ridley Scott’s Gladiator is likely for early next year as well, probably sometime in March. [Read on here…]
