Heat and Speed set to break Disney's 4K Blu-ray catalogue hiatus - Speed now confirmed for May
Updated on 26th March
Speed has now been confirmed for UK 4K Blu-ray release on 17th May - a week earlier than previously reported for the German release. So far we haven't had any confirmation of Heat coming to 4K Blu-ray in the UK.
Hold on tight for a rush of pulse-pounding thrills, breath-taking stunts and unexpected romance in a film you'll want to see again and again. Keanu Reeves stars as an L.A.P.D. SWAT team specialist who is sent to diffuse a bomb that a revenge-driven extortionist (Dennis Hopper) has planted on a city bus. But until he does, one of the passengers (Sandra Bullock) must keep the bus speeding through the streets of Los Angeles at more than 50 miles per hour – or the bomb will explode. A high-octane chase of suspense, nonstop action and surprise twists, Speed is a joyride sure to keep you on the edge of your seat!

Last year news circulated that Disney had abandoned plans to release more catalogue films on 4K Blu-ray outside of their classic animations and key properties. It seems that restriction wasn't quite as locked in as we thought with the news that both Heat and Speed will be heading to 4K Blu-ray in Germany at least this May.
The films, which have joined Disney's catalogue following the buy-out of 20th Century Fox are both considered action classics and are likely to be popular releases on the UHD 4K format.
We have no details on a UK release of either at the moment but it seems likely that Disney will release both here around the same time as they debut in the Germany if they follow a similar pattern to earlier 4K UHD catalogue releases.
