It could very simply be the current design for all Arrow postcards now that they're doing UHDs.

Given that they already released a blu ray of True Romance in 2019, apparently from the same old master, would they be promoting now if it wasn't going to be a new transfer or a new format? I'm probably missing something; not super familiar with their marketing practices...

I only linked it up with 4K because it was the only coded ‘clue’ on that page that seemed to match up. Nothing more.

While not without precedent, I’d find it weird if Arrow were to be rereleasing the film just to add a couple more extras if it wasn’t to also feature a new restoration. There’s always a first time, and True Romance sorely needs a makeover.

I think we can be pretty sure that if/when Arrow release True Romance, they'll release it on UHD if it's up to them. Same goes for The Last of the Mohicans and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves - they're all huge gets for Arrow.

They released it as a bare-bones Arrow Films release but is supposedly going to get a later more traditional Arrow treatment, with possibly/hopefully a new restoration, hence why it still gets promoted now.

Same TR card was also found in a US copy of Tremors, so it's pretty much a dead cert it'll at least be a new transfer, if not UHD. I'd be very pleased with either.

Morgan Creek titles are with Sony in the US, and they don't license UHD rights.

A fresh scan would be great. A UHD would be truly essential.
