    The limited edition I'm sure will continue to go up in the future. The standard edition probably depends on how many copies were pressed and if it gets a release in the U.S.

    A small bit of news on Martin, looks like it will be UHD and BD:

    Let's hope it's a combo pack and not separate releases, but if Dawn of the Dead is any indication...

    Late Summer? Lol - I don't think so. They've just begun the restoration. Maybe by Christmas but even that is pushing it. How many times was DotD pushed back before it made landfall? 3?

    I like your pessimism, my first thought was that we will definitely not be seeing this release "late summer" but I would really love for them to prove us wrong!

    I mean, there's a chance they've already been working on this newer scan for a while and only decided to share now? I don't recall their reasoning for delaying the Dawn release though. Either way I'm happy to get this in 4k when it's available. It's really awesome they were able to find a good quality negative for this.

    They initially announced this a WHILE back, around the time the Dawn specs were finalized and said then that they had just started working on the restoration for Martin and that it would still be a while before it saw a release. I can totally see it coming late summer. They've been working on Martin for a while, they're only now just tweeting about it.

    That being said, definitely picking up the UHD. If it's anything like their Dawn restoration, it'll look incredible.
