The first American Pie movie, from all the way back in 1999, is getting a surprise 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray release in the UK. More here.

Here’s a bit of a surprise. That’s not a massive demand that I can see for comedy movies to make the jump to the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray format, although there are exceptions to that rule. Maybe 1999’s American Pie will be one of those.

88 Films has picked up home media rights to the movie, and is set to give the film its 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray debut in the UK this coming June. 24th June to be exact, in a set that includes both a 4K disc and a Blu-ray as well.

The inclusion of a Blu-ray suggests that previous extra features are going to be ported over as part of the release.

According to the blurb, 88 Films has ordered a remaster in 4K of the movie from the original negatives of the film. If this release goes well, it’ll be interesting to see if it presses ahead with the assorted sequels too, although nobody is expecting to see the never-ending straight to DVD sequels get the remastering treatment.

The original American Pie though remains – as well as a hit movie – an enduring one too. You can find out more about the release, and order yourself a copy, right here.

We’ll leave you with the synopsis, even though we suspect you already know it…
