Is Panic Room coming to UHD Blu-ray?

Panic Room, the only David Fincher movie not available in Blu-ray, could be having its big-time debut in the most advanced version of the format.

The Czech movies and music online shop Film Arena is listing a 2 disc UHD Blu-ray edition of Panic Room to be released on September 19, 2018.

Hopefully, with the whole set of numerous extras from the Panic Room (3 Disc DVD Special Edition), a full course in modern filmmaking and a masterpiece of DVD design and authoring by David Prior, gathered in that second BD disc.

Let’s hope for a more worldwide release confirmation soon, especially in a rapidly declining market for physical formats.

Thanks to Joe Frady.

UPDATE: the Finnish movies online shop Discshop is listing the 2 disc UHD Blu-ray edition of Panic Room for September 24, 2018.

Skydance Extends Paramount Deal Four Years

Jim Cameron & Tim Miller ‘Terminator’ On Boards

by Mike Fleming Jr
August 7, 2017

Despite vehement denials late last year that Skydance’s long relationship with Paramount Pictures would be extended, the company announced that it has in fact reupped its producing and co-financing relationship with the studio for another four years. This gives Paramount much needed cash to try and launch tent pole films and franchises, something it sorely needs. Pictures on the docket include Mission: Impossible, the Joseph KosinskiTom Cruise collaboration Top Gun, and the David FincherBrad Pitt sequel to World War Z. Skydance was already part of these pictures. Of note here is the formalization of news that Deadline broke last January, that the studio will re-launch of the Terminator franchise with Skydance.
