More Sneak Peeks at Upcoming Blu-ray Titles

Fantastic Four The Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA) has issued a few more tantalizing Blu-ray release tidbits ahead of a major format announcement scheduled for this Thursday, including a sneak peek at Fox's first Blu-ray disc titles.

In a press release issued late yesterday, the BDA revealed that Fox's initial Blu-ray wave will include such tasty titles as 'Fantastic Four,' 'Ice Age,' 'Behind Enemy Lines,' 'Kiss of the Dragon' and 'The League of Extraordinary Gentleman.'

More titles due to be announced soon include another Blu-ray batch from Buena Vista Home Entertainment by year's end, including 'Kill Bill Vol. 1,' 'Armageddon' and 'Ladder 49.'

Also hinted: a new format partner for Blu-ray. Which could be a hardware manufacturer, or potentially a studio. Given that the only two majors remaining who have yet to formally announce Blu-ray support are Universal and New Line, the official news could be exciting indeed.

The BDA had previously hinted at these major Blu-ray developments via an announcement released to the media late last week.

Expect specifics to be unveiled this Thursday when the IFC convention kicks off in Berlin, Germany. We'll certainly be there for the big announcements, so stay tuned for full details as soon as they come in.
