Marvel Studios' Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will be released for home video August 22 on 4K Ultra HD, DVD, and Blu-ray, with a earlier digital release of August 8. This will be Marvel Studios' first film to be released in 4k Ultra HD format, which includes Dolby Atmos immersive audio.
"4K UltraHD is almost certainly the best way you can see this movie at home - with more definition and the most vibrant colors possible on your home screen, and with the brightest brights and the blackest blacks," said writer/director James Gunn on Facebook. "A being composed of light truly appears to be a being composed of light! This version is a roiling cinematic river of beauty and I've taken hundreds of hours personally making it look the best it can. This is one of the reasons why light and color are such important elements of Vol. 2's story, and why we screened the World Premiere in Los Angeles in essentially this format."
An expensive Ultimate Cinematic Universe Edition will also be released on August 22, and will include the 4K Ultra HD, Blu-Ray, and digital versions of the film, as well as 80 minutes of bonus features ranging from outtakes to deleted scenes, audio commentary by writer/director James Gunn, the previously-announced Sniffers music video, and more.
Here is a new trailer, specific for the home video release:
