If, like me, you're wondering what 'mastered in 4K' means, here's Sony's explanation:

"Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has released Blu-ray Disc movies Mastered in 4K and Optimized for 4K Ultra High Definition Televisions. These Blu-ray Disc movies will include the following technologies to yield the greatest possible high definition picture quality and will upscale to create a satisfying 4K experience.

* Utilization of 4K movie masters created either from a film source scanned digitally with more than 4K resolution, or shot with 4K digital cameras that provides a more precise and detailed picture.

* The utilization of x.v.YCC color gamut to the 4K movie master delivers an expanded range of rich color contained in the original source when viewed on a high definition television compatible with x.v. * YCC specification.

* Sony worked together with Sony Pictures to optimize the algorithms of down-converting 4K movie masters to upscale it with the Sony 4K-Reality Pro Engine when viewed on a Sony 4K LED TV."

Nah, not even upscaled. Can never be more than HD. Basically "we use good quality sources to produce this blu-ray" .... as they've always done.

Standard price. Great film though

"look at me", this is a great movie and surprisingly tense too. abdu steals the show hands down.
