The Martian


This is an odd one.  Every frame/scene with CG is from a 2K master and any scene that is completely live action is from a 4K master. Half the movie is 'Fake 4K' and the other half is 'Real 4K'.  You should see a noticeable improvement over a standard Blu-ray. Check the information below to see if the studios have upgraded the video with HDR or added immersive Dolby Atmos or DTS:X audio tracks.

During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit, and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive.

All-new extended cut with over 10 minutes of footage not shown in theaters, plus hours of never-before-seen extras that take you deeper into the making of the film and the science behind it.

* - There has been some debate on whether or not 'The Martian' had a 2K or 4K DI. According to The Digital Bits (as confirmed by the studio): they re-edited the movie for home release using some parts of the 2K DCP and other parts from the original 5K camera files and everything was regraded and mastered at 4K.
