    Best Buy 4K Steelbook looks cool. Nice that the art is actually different from the standard release, unlike their 2001 4K Steelbook.

    WB Shop description lists the 4K disc running time as 146 minutes. Probably a just mistake. If not, it's possible that this release will finally include the cut hospital epilogue.

    The 4K remastering was done using a new 4K scan of the original 35mm camera negative at Warner Bros. Motion Picture Imaging. Filmmaker Steven Spielberg and Stanley Kubrick's former personal assistant Leon Vitali worked closely with the team at Warner Bros. during the mastering process.

    The 4K remastering is of Kubrick's original 146 minute version of the film which premiered in the United States on May 23rd, 1980.

    The Shining Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack features an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc with the feature film in 4K with HDR, a Blu-ray disc with the film in high definition and the special features in high definition, and a Digital version of the movie.

    The big question for me is why we can't ever get a release of The Shining with both the US cut AND Kubrick's final cut (the euro version)? Is it because they know morons like me will buy the film twice if they don't include both? Or did Kubrick specify that only the US version could be released on home video in the US, and vice versa for Europe? Kind of like his insistance on 4:3 on home video and tv.
    Looking for Orozco the Embalmer (Camera Obscura) and the Swedish theatrical poster of Breaking Point (Vibenius/"Ron Silberman Jr.", 1975).

    I'd be curious to know which cut is available to stream in different countries. In Australia we always had the short version on home video. Streaming from Google though we have the US cut. If that's what we're being offered to stream I wouldn't be surprised at all if this was now the default cut around the world.

    Here's the official press release from Warner Brothers:

    WARNER BROS. HOME ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES THE SHINING TO BE RELEASED ON 4K UHD BLU-RAY™ COMBO PACK AND DIGITAL

    STANLEY KUBRICK’S HORROR CLASSIC TO BE AVAILABLE IN 4K RESOLUTION WITH HIGH DYNAMIC RANGE (HDR) FOR THE FIRST TIME

    BURBANK, CA, May 15, 2019 – Warner Bros. Home Entertainment announced today that The Shining, Stanley Kubrick’s terrifying 1980 horror masterpiece, will be released on Ultra HD Blu-ray and Digital on October 1. The 4K remastering is of Kubrick’s original 146 minute version of the film which premiered in the United States on May 23rd, 1980.

    Now widely regarded as one of the greatest horror films ever made, The Shining was directed and produced by Kubrick, who wrote the screenplay with Diane Johnson. The film was based on the novel “The Shining” by Stephen King, and stars Jack Nicholson in an iconic role as Jack Torrance, Shelley Duval as Wendy Torrance, Scatman Crothers as Dick Halloran, and Danny Lloyd as Danny Torrance.

    The 4K remastering was done using a new 4K scan of the original 35mm camera negative at Warner Bros. Motion Picture Imaging. Filmmaker Steven Spielberg and Stanley Kubrick’s former personal assistant Leon Vitali worked closely with the team at Warner Bros. during the mastering process.

    On May 17th, the restored 4K version of the film will be screened at The Cannes Film Festival.

    In 2018, The Shining was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.” The film ranked 29th on AFI’s 100 Years…100 Thrills list, and Jack Torrance was named the 25th greatest villain on the AFI’s 100 Years…100 Heroes and Villains list. Additionally, the quote “Here’s Johnny” from the film was ranked 68th on AFI’s 100 Years…100 Movie Quotes list.

    Ultra HD* showcases 4K resolution with High Dynamic Range (HDR) and a wider color spectrum, offering consumers brighter, deeper, more lifelike colors for a home entertainment viewing experience like never before.
