Universal Pictures Home Entertainment detailed its list of Ultra HD Blu-ray releases scheduled this summer, and it's just the tip of the iceberg for 4K home video collectors. ​Beginning with Warcraft, Jason Bourne, and The Huntsman: Winter's War, more than 100 titles will be available by the end of the year for 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and digital formats. Each title will be mastered in Dolby Vision as well, with HDR and brighter colors across digital and physical releases.

The releases aren't relegated to current box-office bids, however, with recent films such as Lucy, Lone Survivor, and Everest rounding things out. If you missed them in theaters you'll be able to check them out at home in style later this year -- that is, if you didn't already stream them by then.

While this opens up a wide breadth of content for consumers looking to grow their home entertainment collection, the 4K Blu-ray could still be dead on arrival. Some cinephiles are opting for 4K video streaming over expensive discs and 4K Blu-ray devices, with digital content winning out by far. With so many services out there to choose from, it's hard to compete.
