Although fans can already own Wonder Woman digitally, the film will soon be available to own on Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD on Tuesday, September 19. Courtesy of Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, I had an opportunity to have an early look at a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray copy of the film to explore the picture quality, surround sound and special features. Here are my thoughts…
When it comes to their Blu-ray releases, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is a viable contender for the best overall picture quality in terms of their new releases. The consistency from each of their most recent releases is almost unmatched, and their DC Films may be the pinnacle of their catalogue. Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad all had stellar transfers, but this transfer of Wonder Woman is easily at the top of the ranks in terms of DC Extended Universe visual presentations.
In particular, the High Dynamic Range (HDR) showcases the incredible colors seen throughout the film beautifully. In particular, every scene that takes place on Themyscira is demo-worthy. The shots of Steve Trevor’s plane crashing into the ocean before Diana rescues him from drowning is a feast for the eyes in this 4K transfer. Also, the sequences that place Diana right in the middle of World War I showcase the remarkable contrast between the warm embrace of her home and the dark nature of mankind.
