From Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer Films, it was announced today at D23 Expo that Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will be available on Digital starting Sept 19, and in 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray on Oct 3. This follows closely on the heels of the announcement that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will be the first Marvel Studios film to be released in 4K Ultra HD. Clearly, Disney is going all-in on the format, which they praised in the following statement:
Fans who bring home "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" will experience the nonstop action in stunning 4K Ultra HD format, the ultimate home entertainment experience with next-generation high dynamic range (HDR) visuals and Dolby Atmos immersive audio.
Naturally, there will be plenty of bonus material (ghost sharks will be involved of course):
Bonus material includes a collection of behind-the-scenes, making-of stories, including a conversation with directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg; a sit-down with the two young newcomers who play Henry and Carina; the secrets behind the menacing new villain, Salazar, and his ferocious ghost sharks; an on-set visit with Jack's first mate from all five films; a chat with Sir Paul McCartney who appears as Uncle Jack; and a discussion about the franchise's legacy; along with hilarious bloopers, deleted scenes and memories from producer Jerry Bruckheimer's photo diary.
Disney also included a trailer for the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Digital and 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray release:
The Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales digital release is currently available to pre-order on Amazon, and the Blu-ray release should follow suit sometime in the near future.
