Default iTunes Upgrade Calendar (Estimated)

I thought it might be useful for the iTunes digital forum if we had a thread to show the forthcoming potential 4K upgrades, based on announced physical disc releases.

While the below is focussed on the US store, you can use the iTunes ID to determine if your market will likely see an upgrade too. If they match, chances are high!

If you spot something missing, add a post and I'll add to the OP when possible.

Warning: this is by no means a guarantee!

Upcoming Potential iTunes Upgrades

29 November
Train to Busan

6 December
Adaptation.
Pulp Fiction
R.I.P.D.

21 February
The Remains of the Day (Dolby Vision)

February
Training Day

4 April
Superman II
Superman III
Superman IV: The Quest for Peace

Really appreciate this thread! Will make it so much easier to keep up with when to expect upgrades to hit.

I was hoping this movie would get the iTunes extras that they have in the US once it upgraded to 4K in the UK store but there is no extras preview. Is it safe to assume these extras are not coming?

Many films from Paramount don't feature extras. Maybe I am wrong.

All Paramount Presents series Blus seem to be getting the 4k treatment on iTunes day of disc release or a bit before.

It's showing as 4K in the iTunes Store.

If you already own it in your library, it won't show 4K tags until your library is refreshed. You can do this by purchasing something (even something free), signing in and out of your account, or waiting a few days. It SHOULD play in 4K though.

I donít own it. I know that it is easy to set up accounts for other countries and to switch libraries but I want to have just one library. Iím trying to figure out which store is better - the UK or US. However so far it seems that both have 4K/Extras that the other doesnít.

If you want to be ready for the upgrade Battle Royale, Donnie Darko and The Bird with the Crystal Plumage are £2.99 until tomorrow on the UK store as part of Arrow's March sale, not sure if that's replicated in the US?

King of New York took quite a while to get upgraded when the disc came out but it did happen eventually so it'll be interesting to see if that was a deliberate choice to push people into buying the disc or if they were just tardy.

In the U.S., Battle Royale is from a different studio, so probably won't be 4K here.

There is no U.S. listing for "The Bird With The Crystal Plumage" at this time.

"Donnie Darko" is $2.99 here too also though.

I don't think Roman Holiday & The Court Jester are going to happen. I would be surprised if The Greatest Show On Earth gets upgraded too.

"The Court Jester" has a nifty 6K scan out there.

"Roman Holiday" and "The Greatest Show On Earth" both have a neato 4K scan out there.

I believe both are coming, but "Roman Holiday" has indeed taken a while, and may be a while still.
