Ultra News: Stand By Me Getting a 4K Release

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment confirmed today that a new 4K UHD release of Stand By Me, Rob Reiner's seminal coming-of-age film based on Stephen King's short story, is finally on the way! The child star-studded masterpiece has received a new 4K restoration, struck from the original camera negative, with high dynamic range available as well. Also included are a slew of new, never before seen deleted and alternate scenes, all of the features from the older blu-ray, and a new Dolby Atmos audio mix for the most immersive audiophile's cinematic experience (along with the original mono audio and the 5.1 soundtrack from the blu-ray, of course). The first printing will also feature a limited edition o-ring sleeve featuring the original poster that has gone down as a cinematic icon. 

Stand By Me's UHD is set to release on August 27.
