4K Ultra HD Blu-ray is here! But what can you watch in the format, and where can you buy it? Read on…

4K Blu-ray is now available in the UK, bringing with it a number of titles to enjoy in ultra high-definition.

Not long ago, a 65in 4K TV would have cost £5000 and 4K content was restricted to Netflix and Amazon's streaming services. Now, though, you can find a 65in 4K TV for just over half that price. And what was a trickle of content has become a stream as studios release more titles.

Recently, we've seen Sony's UBP-X800 joining Oppo's UDP-203 and the Award-winning Panasonic DMP-UB900, as well as more affordable players in Microsoft's Xbox One S, Panasonic's DMP-UB700 and Samsung's UBD-K8500.

So we've rounded up all the Ultra HD Blu-rays you can buy in the UK*. We’ll be updating this page regularly as more titles are released.

20th Century Fox

Assassin's Creed (£20) – The film may be interminably dour with poorly conceived action scenes, but the 4K disc is stunning both in picture and sound View at HMV

Dawn Of Planet Of The Apes (£19) –A superior sequel. The HDR adds more subtlety to the image, but there's no Dolby Atmos or DTS:X soundtrack View at Zavvi

Deadpool (£20) – Ryan Reynolds is the 'Merc with the mouth' in this foul-mouthed superhero film that gleefully breaks the fourth wall View at Amazon

Exodus: Gods and Kings (£17) – Not among the great biblical epics, Gods and Kings is nonetheless a visually lush film from Sir Ridley Scott View at Zavvi

Fantastic Four (£17) – An intriguing, if downbeat, take on Marvel’s first family, it comes with an immersive DTS soundtrack View at Zavvi

Hidden Figures (£20)A true, uplifting story of three black women working in the U.S space program. The picture boasts subtle, but aggreable upticks in detail View at Amazon

Ice Age: Collision Course (£20) – Despite the fantastic UHD performance, this is a largely stale effort from a franchise that's showing its age View at HMV

Independence Day (£16) – This enjoyably cheesy blockbuster gets a 4K remaster in time for its 20th anniversary View at Amazon

Joy (£20) – Starring Jennifer Lawrence, this biopic about Joy Mangano, creator of the miracle mop, gets a UHD release View at HMV

Kingsman: The Secret Service (£20) – A raucous and raunchy riff on James Bond, with tongue lodged firmly in cheek View at Amazon

Miss Peregine's Home for Peculiar Children (£20) – Another film about odd people from Tim Burton, this native 4K film gets a pleasing transfer View at HMV

The Revenant (£20) – When 19th century trapper Hugh Glass (Leonardo Di Caprio) is left for dead, he embarks on a quest to find his way back home and get revenge. A gorgeous looking film View at Amazon

Trolls (£20) – A film aimed at kids, the picture and sound are good but it's not a significant upgrade over the Blu-ray View at Amazon

X-Men: Apocalypse (£20) – A disappointing sequel to DoFP that, despite the largely epic visuals, comes across as a bit overstuffed and familiar View at HMV

X-Men: Days of Future Past (£25) – The cast of the original X-Men and First Class are reunited in this time-bending take on the popular Marvel comicbook View at HMV

X-Men First Class (£20) – This 4K upgrade offers a solid presentation with decent picture and very good sound. No Dolby Atmos though. View at HMV

On A Mission - Live In Madrid (£25) – A 4K release from a German cable manufacturer that also dabbles in music and media. This one should appeal to fans of Michael Schenker and classic rock View at Amazon

Lions Gate

Criminal (£18) – Kevin Costner plays an ex-con implanted with a CIA agent's memories in an effort to stop a hacker from launching missiles that could start World War III. Expect action View at HMV

Deepwater Horizon (£18) – A intense retelling of the Deepwater disaster, this is a film that looks great and sounds even better View at Amazon

Hacksaw Ridge (£20) – A visceral depiction of the Battle of Okinawa that tells the story of the astonishing Desmond Dawes. Picture-wise, it's a notable upgrade over the Blu-ray View at Amazon

La La Land (£20) – An impressive showcase for HDR/WCG grading, with bold, vivid colours. The Dolby Atmos track makes this a terrific presentation View at Amazon

Patriots Day (£22) – A solid retelling of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. The 4K boasts a very good image and a great DTS:X track View at HMV

Sicario (£18) – An awesomely tense experience as Emily Blunt's FBI agent gets in over her head in this stylish take on the war on drugs, complete with a superb soundtrack View at HMV

The Expendables 3 (£18) – Sly Stallone's crew of ageing action stars flex their biceps against a former expendable, turned villain, Mel Gibson's Conrad Stonebanks View at HMV

The Hunger Games (£18– A decent adaptation that's often a bit tame in places. Jennifer Lawrence is solid as the heroine and the 4K Blu-ray sports a pleasing picture View at HMV

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (£18) – The most convincing of the Hunger Games films, the story engages and the 4K disc offers solid sound and vision View at HMV

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 (£18) – A slow, introspective entry that plants the seeds for the final film. Not the brightest of 4K HDR pictures View at HMV

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 (£18) – Katniss takes the fight to President Snow in a finale that's stuffed, but sends its characters off in a fitting manner View at HMV

The Hunger Games: Four-film collection (£60) – A collection of all four films in the Hunger Games saga View at HMV

The Mechanic: Resurrection (£18) – Jason Statham returns to dispatch in ever more inventive ways. The film isn't great, but the disc is rather good View at HMV

Paramount Pictures

Allied (£29) – Robert Zemeckis' WW2 film has an interesting premise but the execution is flawed. Technically though, it's a excellent film and the UHD reflects that View at Zavvi

Star Trek (£22) – The first and best entry in the new “Kelvin timeline”. Thanks to Abrams’ energetic direction, fantastic AV (Atmos track included) and engaging cast, it's one of the finest 4K discs View at Zavvi

Star Trek Beyond (£29) – An improvement on Into Darkness, Beyond has plenty of fizz and energy although the story is overly familar. The 4K disc is another stunning effort View at Zavvi

Star Trek Into Darkness (£20) – The cast still engages in this sequel and on the AV side it's another stellar effort, although the film suffers from an underwhelming narrative (Khaaaaannn!!!) View at Amazon

Terminator Genisys (£25)This weak Terminator reboot gets a serviceable 4K upgrade, along with a Dolby Atmos soundtrack. Genisys is still a terrible name for a film View at Amazon

xXx - The Return of Xander Cage (£25) – Xander Cage returns in this very daft sequel, the image is good but the Dolby Atmos track is absolutely fantastic View at HMV

Sony Pictures

Angels and Demons (£20) – A better film than the original, but it still has trouble turning Dan Brown's words into the thriller it wants to be View at Amazon

Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk (£20) Ang Lee's latest is technically ambitious but offers a so-so experience. Disc supports 4K 60fps and Atmos View at HMV

Chappie (£20) – A somewhat derivative effort, Chappie is worth a watch thanks to the seamless visual effect of its main character View at HMV

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (£20) – Ang Lee's classic gets a 4K restoration that's a fine example of the format, with stellar performance in both video and audio View at HMV

Ghostbusters [2016] (£17) – A reboot? A remake? Whatever the case, Ghostbusters 2016 is hit and miss. The 4K release has a great soundtrack View at Zavvi

Ghostbusters 1-3 (£50) – Features the three Ghostbusters films in one box, the beloved original is the best of the lot – View at HMV

Hancock (£20) – A promising set-up gives way to a disappointing second half, this is a superhero movie that at least attempts a few risks View at Zavvi

Inferno (£20) – Tom Hanks again returns as Robert Langdon in another reasonable film. Visually it's good but the Atmos track is a substantial upgrade View at Amazon

Labyrinth (£17) – David Bowie features as the Goblin King, who gives a girl (Jennifer Connelly) 13 hours to solve a labyrinth or he'll take her baby brother away View at Zavvi

Passengers (£20) – A native 4K film that produces a stunningly pristine, clean image with very few flaws. The Atmos track offers a fine listen too View at HMV

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (£20)The Resi series ends (or does it?) with a disappointing 4K image, but the sound is good View at Amazon

Salt (£17) – Angelina Jolie’s double agent goes on the run in this enjoyable, female-led action film that features a great HDR-assisted picture View at Zavvi

Sausage Party (£19) – An indecent, vulgar and pun-tastic animated comedy that's received fine 4K treatment View at Amazon

T2 Trainspotting (£20) – Probably not as good as the original, it's still a decent dip back into the lives of Renton and co. View at Amazon

The 5th Wave (£20) – Chloe Grace Moretz leads the fightback against an alien attack that has devastated the Earth in this YA adaptation View at Amazon

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (£20) – It's a great advert for UHD, with fantastic picture and sound, but this superhero sequel suffers from an overly busy narrative View at HMV

The Angry Birds Movie (£20) – An adaptation of the hugely popular mobile game, Angry Birds is your standard animated film wrapped in a terrific 4K package View at HMV

The Da Vinci Code (£20) – Even 4K can't lift this leaden adaptation off the ground - nor can it make Tom Hanks' haircut look any better View at Amazon

The Magnificent Seven (£20) An improvement on the Blu-ray, the UHD release is more refined and looks fantastic. The Dolby Atmos track is a knockout too View at HMV

The Shallows (£18) A decent little thriller that pits Blake Lively against a killer shark. Even with some wonky CG, it's a great UHD disc and Lively is fantastic in it View at Amazon

The Smurfs 2 (£17) – One for the family, this live-action/animated hybrid has stellar picture and sound. The less said about the film the better View at Zavvi

Underworld: Blood Wars (£21) – Although, like its characters, the Underworld series will not die, the 4K version does at least offer a very good A/V presentation View at Amazon

Battleship (£25) – By all accounts a poorly conceived film, but a great showcase for 4K. There's no Atmos, but it has a DTS:X track instead View at Amazon

Despicable Me 2 (£25) – The Despicable Me sequel gets the Dolby Vision treatment and like the first film it sports DTS:X audio View at HMV

Everest (£22) – Relives the true story of a climbing expedition on Mt Everest that encounted one of the worst snow storms ever seen View at Zavvi

Fast & Furious 7 (£25)Jason Statham faces up against the Furious crew in a film that sees a car fly from one skyscraper to another View at Amazon

Fifty Shades of Grey + Fifty Shades Darker (£35) – The popular (but rather bland) film series gets a UHD release. A decent uprgade over the Blu-ray but not by much View at HMV

IMAX Adventure (£17) – An IMAX documentary that showcases scenes of tornados, the Grand Canyon and images of the universe in dazzling 4K (but strangely, no HDR) View at Amazon

IMAX Nature (£17) – Another IMAX documentary, this time taking in Antartica, primitive animals from the Ice Age and nature's most feared hunter, the shark View at Amazon

Lucy (£20) – Luc Besson's bonkers sci-fi is anchored by Scarlett Johansson's turn as a drug mule who develops abilities that transform her into a highly capable being. One of the best 4K discs available View at Zavvi

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (£30) – Tom Cruise returns in this lacklustre sequel that boasts a very good picture and an excellent Atmos track View at Zavvi

Jason Bourne (£30) – Matt Damon returns as older, weary Bourne in an effective if familiar addition. It's not as fresh, but still serves up some spectacular action scenes View at Zavvi

Oblivion (£20) – Tom Cruise plays a veteran soldier tasked with extracting Earth's remaining resources but senses something is wrong with the mission. Looks and sounds spectacular in 4K/Atmos View at Amazon

Sing (£25) – A decent animated riff on X-Factor, the 4K offers a good HDR-assisted picture, though detail could be better. The Atmos track offers good immersion View at Amazon

Snow White and The Huntsman (Extended Edition) (£22) – A tepid, revisionist tale of the Snow White story that's saved only by Charlize Theron's theatrics View at Zavvi

Split (£25) – Shyamalan's latest is very well done and contains a few welcome surprises. By far the best film he's made in years View at HMV

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (£22) – An average sequel with decent UHD visuals. The energetic Atmos soundtrack is the highlight View at Zavvi

The Bourne Identity (£22) – Identity turned the modern day spy genre on its head and still remains one of the best spy thrillers since the 2000s View at Zavvi

The Bourne Supremacy (£22) – Supremacy sees Paul Greengrass inherit the director's seat, creating what would become the series signature style View at Zavvi

The Bourne Ultimatum (£22) – A fantastic end to the trilogy that introduces a new enemy, brings back old characters and has several cracking set-pieces View at Zavvi

The Bourne Legacy (£22) – A disappointing spin-off that attempts to copy the series style, but instead serves up a limp imitation View at Zavvi

The Great Wall (£25) – Matt Damon stars in this fairly average fantasy film that does at least boast excellent sound and vision  View at HMV

The Huntsman: Winter's War (£25) – Chris Hemsworth returns in a sequel that sees the Huntsman try to keep the Magic Mirror away from Emily Blunt's Ice Queen View at Amazon

Warcraft: The Beginning (£22) – WoW hits the screen in this occasionally confounding film. The visual effects are impressive, but the story and characters less so View at Zavvi

MORE: DTS:X - what is it? How can you get it?

Warner Bros.

Argo (£17) – Ben Affleck's Oscar-winning film hits 4K with an impressive picture. No Dolby Atmos soundtrack though View at Zavvi

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice – Ultimate Edition (£20) – A dour, shaggy dog of a superhero film. Ultimate Edition offers improvements, but could have been much better View at Amazon

Creed (£20) – Despite the presence of Sly Stallone's Rocky Balboa, this film focuses on Michael B. Jordan's Adonis Creed as he follows in the footsteps of late father Apollo View at Amazon

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (£25)The film suffers from trying to do too much, but the UHD is outstanding, making this a reference-worthy disc View at HMV

Goodfellas (£20) – A classic that's benefited from a 4K restoration that gives the film a new lease of life View at HMV

I Am Legend (£20)  A decent adaptation of Richard Matheson's short story. The picture and audio are terrific and Will Smith is in fine form View at Amazon

In the Heart of the Sea (£20) – The story that inspired Moby Dick: the crew of a whaling ship are involved in a battle for survival when an Orca attacks their ship View at HMV

John Wick (£20) – Keanu Reeves' first go as hitman John Wick. The HDR visuals are nice but the Atmos track is phenomenal. Do not kill his dog View at HMV

John Wick 1&2 (£45) – Both the two films in the John Wick franchise packaged together View at Amazon

Jupiter Ascending (£20) – A visually stunning, but very goofy, sci-fi fantasy from the Wachowskis that boasts an immersive Atmos soundtrack View at HMV

The Legend of Tarzan (£20) - A functional take on Tarzan, the UHD disc offers spectacular audio and decent visuals. CG animals are still rubbish though View at Amazon

Mad Max: Fury Road (£20) – Fast and furious, George Miller’s return to the wasteland is a beautiful audition for UHD and HDR View at Amazon

Man of Steel (£20) Zack Snyder's take on Superman is a bold, but flawed effort. While the picture receives a slight upgrade, the new Dolby Atmos soundtrack is the real star View at HMV

Pacific Rim (£20) – Guillermo del Toro's love letter to Kaiju monster movies is a fun adventure that's one of the best 4K Blu-rays available View at Amazon

Pan (£20) – Another version of the Peter Pan story that’s visually dazzling, if an imperfect film. The Dolby Atmos soundtrack is the real highlight View at Amazon

Point Break (£20) – A remake of Kathryn Bigelow’s cult classic that takes place in the world of extreme sports, but doesn’t stick the landing View at Amazon

San Andreas (£20) – Rock, paper, earthquake. Dwayne Johnson takes on the San Andreas fault in this disaster film. The Dolby Atmos track will shake your room View at Amazon

Storks (£20) – The best way to catch this serviceable animated adventure on home entertainment thanks to its HDR assisted video View at Amazon

Suicide Squad (£17) – Better than BvS but not by much. Despite some good moments, it falls apart upon closer inspection and the main villain is rubbish View at Zavvi

Sully: Miracle On the Hudson (£24) – Clint Eastwood's drama is a little slow-paced, but it's a surprise that the fine UHD is not presented in the full IMAX ratio View at Zavvi

The Accountant (£20) – A bonkers, guilty pleasure hitman flick with a picture that's barely an upgrade over the Blu-ray and does not include Atmos either View at Amazon

The Lego Movie (£17) – Everything is awesome in this vivid and colourful take on the toy bricks that is popular with both children and adults View at Zavvi

The Lego Batman (£25) It runs out of gas towards the end, but is an enjoyable ride nonetheless. Visually impressive, the Atmos track is excellent too View at Amazon

The Great Gatsby (£25) – An energetic and exuberant take on Fitzgerald's classic that arguably offers style over substance. The UHD performance is stellar View at Amazon

The Town (£20) – Another Affleck film on 4K, this release is an upgrade over the Blu-ray in terms of sharpness and clarity View at Amazon

Unforgiven (£20) – A classic is given the respect it merits with a 4K transfer that remains true to Clint Eastwood's vision. The audio is improved over prior releases View at Amazon
