Martin Scorsese’s After Hours marks the debut of the Criterion Collection on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray in the UK: more here.

Now here’s some very, very welcome news for collectors of physical media, in particular the burgeoning 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray format. The Criterion Collection, which had been supporting the 4K format in the US for well over a year, is finally going to be doing the same in the UK.

The first Criterion title to get a native 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray UK release will be Martin Scorsese’s After Hours, it’s been announced. It’ll also be arriving on Blu-ray too, on October 9th.

There are extra features with the release, and these have been confirmed as the following…

  • In the 4K UHD edition: One 4K UHD disc of the film presented in Dolby Vision HDR and one Blu-ray with the film and special features
  • New conversation between director Martin Scorsese and writer Fran Lebowitz
  • Audio commentary featuring Scorsese, Schoonmaker, director of photography Michael Ballhaus, actor and producer Griffin Dunne, and producer Amy Robinson
  • Documentary about the making of the film featuring Dunne, Robinson, Schoonmaker, and Scorsese
  • New program on the look of the film featuring costume designer Rita Ryack and production designer Jeffrey Townsend
  • Deleted scenes
