The Criterion Collection has announced that it will release on 4K Blu-ray Orson Welles' Citizen Kane (1941), starring Joseph Cotten, Dorothy Comingore, Agnes Moorehead, Ruth Warrick, and Ray Collins.

Each title will be available in a 4K Blu-ray+Blu-ray combo pack including a 4K Bu-ray disc of the feature film as well as the film and its special features on Blu-ray. Select films will be presented in Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos. Stay tuned for more details in the November announcement!
