4k Blu-Ray Movies Launch list

The dawn of home 4k Blu-Ray movies is coming fast upon on us whether you're ready or not and bringing a current launch list of titles. The new discs will bring the highest quality ever available for the home at 3840x2160 quality which is matched by none. This will of course only be playable if you have the following things; a 4K resolution TV/Monitor, 4K Blu-Ray player and of course the 4k Blu-Ray discs. Aside from the higher resolution the 4K player brings with it a much better color quality and other minor adjustments to make a true image for these movies. I've included the full list of 4K Blu-Rays discs that will be available for launch below along with their film rendering quality so that you have a reference guide, will add more when announced before the release of the device. I'd also like to clarify that film rendering may mean that some of these titles aren't true 4K and are just upscaled from a lower resolution.
