Yes! With the upcoming Alien Covenant I was wondering when they'd finally announce this. Gonna pre-order this for sure.

Now announce Alien and Aliens too please.

OMG im so excited. this is one of my fav movies ever. the blu ray looks jaw dropping in every way possible. day one purchase

the bad news is: there will be no atmos or DTS:X and the reason why is because its FOX. FOX only release atmos if the movie originally had it in the theatre and prometheus did not so they will not upgrade the audio

So far it seems like Convenant is going to have a pretty much unrelated plot (to this one)?
No, it's related to this one. David and Shaw are in it, but to what extent ... that's the question.

So yeah, while Alien and Aliens in 4K wouldn't be a problem, getting 4K out of Alien³ and Resurrection would be a bit more costly to do it right so it could well be that we don't see them in UHD until the next big anniversary.
Still, it didn't take a genius to work out that Prometheus would be a shoo-in on UHD with a new and sorta-related movie on the way. Fingers crossed Fox rebuilt it from the raw camera assets and 2K VFX like they did on le Martian, but even if they didn't the detail is already incredible and this is going to look seriously stunning as the addition of HDR and WCG will make it fly even higher.

This is pretty much never going to happen with any catalog title. Anyone who wants the 3D version likely already has it.

WB is only including it with Kong so they have an excuse to charge $40 for the Steelbook.

I'd be surprised if the Kong Steelbook still has 3D by the time it actually releases.

Also with Prometheus, it's not a matter of just including the 3D, they'd probably have to include the extra bonus disc, which is two extra BDs, which would jack up the price.

Has there ever been a case where UHD re-grading has been applied for the 4K release, then reverse engineered to a new standard blu-ray mastering...such that the new look is emulated for the 1080p HD format?

Good title but I'm not buying. I'm not a 3D fan but I must admit that the 3D version I have (which I bought dirt cheap a year and a half after its release) is the way to go.
Alien and Aliens should be released also, they already have 4K master for these two movies as they were scanned and restored in 4K. Just do an HDR pass and that's it.

Well, except for the fact that pretty much every television maker is dropping support for it in 2017 and companies don't want to waste money they don't have to in pressing more 3D discs.

Prometheus in UHD will be glorious, and it will be mine.

Thank god, the last thing we need is audio mix revisionism. I've been very disappointed in seeing all of these UHD releases ditch the theatrical mix, and I'm glad to see Fox is a bastion of hope. At least in my eyes, they aren't "upgrades" so much as perversion of the art work.
