Fans of The Abyss and True Lies may finally be tempted to throw away their DVDs, VHS tapes, and/or Laserdiscs soon. Speaking to The Digital Bits during a press event at his Lightstorm Entertainment offices, Jon Landau, producer of the Avatar films and one of James Cameron's closest collaborators, confirmed to the publication that the director's 1989 sci-fi film and 1994 spy action comedy with Arnold Schwarzenegger should finally be released on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and Blu-ray this year, and not only that, they'll be joined by 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and Blu-ray versions of Avatar and Titanic as well. The Abyss and True Lies have never received a Blu-ray release (at least, not outside of Spain), and while Blu-ray versions of Avatar and Titanic are already available, fans should be able to revisit those classics relatively soon in glorious 4K and HDR. Avatar: The Way of Water will also be getting 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and Blu-ray releases this year following its digital debut on March 28.

If it has no DV support (preferably v.1.0), a video bitrate that has a minimum of 55Mb/s, both audio codecs/formats DTS:X MA and MLP/TrueHD w/16+ channel(s) (height firing, etc.) features, these are NOT true 4K releases and these quick cash grabs are not worthy of our purchase.

It would be best to wait for the 2nd (or third) release for the best copy for our library.
