The Hurt Locker took home six Oscars a decade ago, including Best Picture and Best Director for Kathryn Bigelow. Most people discovered the film on DVD and Blu-ray, but it's never been available in 4K until now. Alas, if you were hoping for a UHD disc with all the bells and whistles, you're out of luck. Lionsgate is only releasing the remastered version for digital purchase and rental. (Fans of Steven Soderbergh's The Limey were similarly let down this month.) In addition to the enhanced picture, the award-winning sound design will be in Dolby Atmos for the first time.
2010 marked the first time a woman had won Best Director at the Academy Awards, and kick-started the careers of Jeremy Renner (who was nominated for Best Actor) and Anthony Mackie, both of whom would end up in the MCU. The cast also includes Ralph Fiennes, Guy Pearce and David Morse.
The film, which was named one of the top 10 films of the year by dozens of critics, will be available for rental and purchase on Tuesday, February 4.
