The Revenant
Inspired by true events, The Revenant is an epic story of survival and transformation on the American frontier. While on an expedition into the uncharted wilderness, legendary explorer Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) is brutally mauled by a bear, then abandoned by members of his own hunting team. Alone and near death, Glass refuses to succumb. Driven by sheer will and his love for his Native American wife and son, he undertakes a 200-mile odyssey through the vast and untamed West on the trail of the man who betrayed him: John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy). What begins as a relentless quest for revenge becomes a heroic saga against all odds towards home and redemption. The Revenant is directed, produced and co-written by Alejandro G. Iñárritu.

Kingsman: The Secret Service
A super-secret organisation recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency’s ultra-competitive training program just as a dire global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius. A phenomenal cast, Including Academy Award Winners Colin Firth and Michael Caine and Oscar Nominee Samuel L. Jackson, leads this action-packed spy-thriller directed by Matthew Vaughn (X-Men: First Class and Kick-Ass)

Life of Pi
Embark on the adventure of a lifetime in this visual masterpiece from Oscar Winner Ang Lee, based on the best-selling novel. After a cataclysmic shipwreck, an Indian boy named Pi finds himself stranded on a lifeboat with a ferocious Bengal tiger. Together, they face nature’s majestic grandeur and fury on an epic journey of discovery.

The Maze Runner
In this heart-pounding survival thriller based on the best-selling novel, Thomas (Dylan O’Brien of MTV’s Teen Wolf ) wakes up trapped in a massive, ever-changing maze with a group of boys who have no memory of the outside world. Facing dangerous obstacles at every turn — especially the deadly Grievers that roam the concrete corridors at night — Thomas and the others must race to piece together clues in order to discover their true purpose…and find a way out before it’s too late!

Independence Day
A disparate ensemble of heroes band together to defeat the alien invaders who are bent on exterminating mankind with formidable firepower. On July 2nd, communications systems worldwide are sent into chaos by a strange atmospheric interference. It is soon learned by the military that a number of enormous objects are on a collision course with earth. At first thought to be meteors, they are later revealed to be gigantic spacecraft, piloted by a mysterious alien species. After attempts to communicate with the aliens go nowhere, David Levinson, an ex-scientist turned cable technician, discovers that the aliens are going to attack major points around the globe in less than a day. On July 3rd, the aliens all but obliterate New York, Los Angeles, and Washington. The survivors set out in convoys towards Area 51, a strange government testing ground where it is rumored the military has a captured alien spacecraft of their own. The survivors devise a plan to fight back against the enslaving aliens, and July 4th becomes the day humanity will fight for its freedom. July 4th is their independence day...

Exodus: Gods and Kings
From acclaimed director Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Prometheus) comes Exodus: Gods and Kings, the epic tale of one man’s daring courage to take on the might of an empire. Using state-of-the-art visual effects, this spectacular adventure brings new life to the story of Moses(Christian Bale) as he defies the Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton), setting 400,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.

Got this during Black Friday for this price. It was 70 quid yesterday. As I was looking at 4k. Wish they had other boxsets. Would not pay 20 quid for one movie.
Do the movies come in a USB stick? I don't have a 4K DVD player ..

Do the movies come in a USB stick? I don't have a 4K DVD player ..



No, only on 4K discs. A couple of very early 4k documentaries came on USB sticks but i think that was simply because no players were available back then.

This set does include regular blurays (and digital copies) though so you could still watch them now on regular bluray and have something to watch when you get a 4K player too.

My recommendation for a 4K player is an Xbox One S simply because it's 2 functions for the price of one (games console and 4K Bluray player) and has a extremely comprehensive set of apps too, which not all Bluray players have...
Also heat for the deal, great price for this. I wish they had done some other 4K movie box sets like this, there are a better range of titles available now they could choose from and even sequels to some of the titles in this set (e.g. Maze Runner Scorch Trials, Independence Day Resurgence etc) so it really wouldn't have been hard to put together a really good follow up. Guess they consider 4K mature enough they don't have to bother with any more box sets to push it, but i'd say it's still a very fledgling format that needs all the help it can get....

Good finding, voted hot and ordered. However I read in one of the comments the following potentially useful review: "Films are all remastered and not 'true 4k' but they are still miles better quality than normal HD bluray films -especially Life of Pi."

I watched Life of PI on normal bluray on a 4k TV. I have yet to test the 4k version.

Not poo-pooing, but the 4K playback didn't get good reviews on the Xbox One S, if you need something for both still a decent idea.

Kingsmen and Revenant look stunning in 4k. Other titles look better than blu ray except for Independence day which was actually a little disappointing in terms of '4k'.

​If you've got a 4k TV then who cares, let the TV scale it. As long as one of them does it and the TV will have a better scaler anyway

I think your cat's just walked over your keyboard!
It's not exactly a premier collection is it?
4K bluray will never catch on until decent movies come outrather than modern day B movies.
The UK is still primarily hooked on DVD. Bluray hasn't caught on with only a 20% market share.
You will never Convince people to pay over 20 times more for a 4K bluray than a DVD. Can you blame them?
The increase in 4K tv sales is meaningless as people have no choice.
Most cheap 4K TVs aren't up to the job anyway of accurately playing back 4K
But consumers really don't care. Let's face it, do they give a toss if they watch eastenders in sd or uhd? Of course not.
The current range of available 4K bluray movies is shocking. Just go to HMV and see what's available. It's just a sorry collection on second rate movies( on the whole) that can be bought for a quid on DVD elsewhere.

The Revenant
Although it does have a 4K master, the media was shot in less than 4K using a high quality camera. Even films shot with a 2.8K camera have more than twice the pixels as an ordinary 1080p Blu-ray.
Shot in 3.4K (some scenes 6.5K)
VFX Rendered in 2K
Digital Intermediate at 4K

Kingsman: The Secret Service
It is not real 4K in any material way due to having a final master at 2K. Studios have upscaled the 2K image to 4K and retouched the content for your 4K UHD TV. You should see some visual improvement over a standard 1080p Blu-ray.

Independence Day
This is the real deal. Everything was digitally shot in 4K or the original 35/70mm film negative was scanned in 4K and all the mastering/editing was done in 4K. Typically, if the film has VFX it was rendered in 2K. Depending on the caliber of CG, the final picture quality might be imperceptible to Real 4K.

Hmm though it didn't spoil my enjoyment I noticed this too on Planet Earth II only on the zoomed out shots where the camera pans over than landscape, was fine everywhere else. I wonder if it is something to do with the frame rate as my TV shows 24hz when playing 4K Bluray but I would have thought Planet Earth being originally recorded for TV would be at 50 or 60hz...

24Hz/FPS was the chosen frame rate for this release.
Voted hot as UHD blu rays are like £25 which is stupid btw no one will buy them at that price honestly but 6 for £40 is better especially if you like the movies in box
Why bother with 4K movies when 8K is out soon! I don't understand the thinking of you, so called, movie geniuses...
If only i did not already have Revenant and kingsman
The Revenant was good but the rest.
Any of these HDR or Dolby Vision?
