Oppenheimer on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray is heavily in demand, as stocks run short of Christopher Nolan’s latest film.
Ah, physical media. We’re not the only ones who like it, clearly. It’s no secret that Christopher Nolan and his team put in a shift when it came to the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray home release of Oppenheimer, which was finally released last week.
What was less expected was how quickly the existing stocks of the disc would start to sell out. Reports are rife in the US that copies of the film in 4K form have become a rarity, with sell-outs reported across the States.
It’s got to the point where copies of the film are popping up with a premium price attached, as Universal moves quickly to replenish the depleted stocks.
As things stand in the UK, there’s been no shortage of Oppenheimer 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray discs sold. Yet as of this morning when this report is being written, Amazon for one still has some in stock. You can find the current situation here.
In America, the plan is to get more Oppenheimer 4K discs to stores this side of Christmas. Universal has now released a statement to Deadline confirming as such.
“We are happy so many consumers are embracing Oppenheimer in 4K Ultra HD and understand that some retailers may currently be out of stock. Universal is working to replenish those retailers quickly so fans can watch the film at home in the best picture quality possible.”
It’s genuinely lovely to see physical media so in demand, even if the brilliant Oppenheimer isn’t one we could see ourselves cracking open for a regular rewatch. That said, we bought a copy too, so it’s sitting happily in our 4K disc collection.
The film is also available on DVD and Blu-ray too, although stocks of those formats look to be holding up fine so far.—
