Both the 4K Blu-ray and and normal 2D Blu-ray supports Dolby Atmos that allows you to experience movie cinema quality sound. That said, you will need a good surround system in your home to experience this.

If you live in North America, you may want to buy the Ready Player One Blu-ray at Best Buy retailers.

This is because you can buy the movie encased inside a steelbook. The steelbook is exclusive to Best Buy so it's a nice collection to have if you like physical media.
