Akira Kurosawa’s RAN is Coming to 4K Blu-ray

July is turning into a crazy release month with title after title being announced. Lionsgate Movies just confirmed that Akira Kurosawa’s epic RAN is coming to 4K Ultra-High Def Blu-ray on July 6th by releasing the following trailer… and it looks STUNNING!!!!

Synopsis:

Ran – Akira Kurosawa’s visually dazzling samurai epic – blends King Lear, 16th-century feudal Japan, and Kurosawa’s own notions of loyalty and honor to tell the story of aging Lord Hidetora, whose decision to bequeath his kingdom to his three sons sparks a power struggle that leads to chaos and madness. Hailed as a masterpiece by filmmakers and cinephiles alike, and winner of the 1985 Oscar® for Costume Design, Ran is a sumptuous 4K feast (on digital, where available).

Artwork and specs have not been released as of yet, but I’ve been seeing on Twitter that it will be 5.1 audio and is getting a brand new 4K scan of the source.
