2K is 2048x1080 and typically cropped to 1998×1080. So not that much better than HD at 1920x1080. I doubt anyone would be able to tell at normal viewing distances.

LOTR was filmed on 35mm but then scanned-in for digital post processing at 2K. The Hobbit was "filmed" digitally at 5K but then downsized to 2K for post processing. It would require a lot of rework on grading and digital SFX to produce a native 4K of either. They would most likely just run it through an upscaler instead.

[quote=ccparkhill]I believe the SFX were rendered in 2K so would need to be upscaled.[/quote]
I believe you're right, and PJ is not willing to work on a 4k release.

There's an interesting article on recent films and masters here gadgetflux.net/lis…es/

as a side note the bluray release of this that Funi did in America is region B friendly. same with season 1. but season 1 has recently gone out of print so can get very expensive (£50-£100)

this season you can get for about £26 in the classics range from somewhere like wowhd. the bluray is region B but the DVDs that come with it to are region 1

yeah Black Butler season 2 didnt seem to gel well with season 1 to me. just something about it . felt like a different writer or something.

doesnt help only being 12 episodes. then a 6 random "behind the actors studio" like ova episodes and alice in wonderland episodes. didnt do anything for me.

first season is excellent though aswell as book of circus

Waiting for book of Atlantic to come out can't wait

Love black butler but season two was poor imo, one and three were amazing though.

I don't know, I'm thinking these people are a bit stumped by how difficult it may be to them... I'm buying it for all the charts so I don't have to hunt through menus... I never actually buy guides, and I'd never but one to hold my hand all the way through so I don't have to think, otherwise I don't really see the point in playing it.

Plus, it's matter how bad it might be, this will probably be it's first and last print run, so I'll double my money on it in 12 months if kept in good nick
