Tags: Disc Announcements, Warner (all tags)
Warner has given a sneak peek of its upcoming fall line-up of next-gen catalog releases, unveiling plans to bring 'JFK,' 'Casablanca' and a redux of '300' to Blu-ray this year.
During a presentation at the Entertainment Merchants Association Conference held yesterday in Las Vegas, Warner execs revealed plans to bring newly-remastered and feature-laden Collector's Editions of Oliver Stone's 'JFK' and the Oscar-winning classic 'Casablanca' (previously released on HD DVD) to standard DVD and Blu-ray this Fall.
Also due this year is a new Limited Collector's Edition of the blockbuster '300,' which should boast the numerous exclusive features found on the HD DVD edition of the film that were dropped from the previous Blu-ray version. (A double dip of the top-selling next-gen title has long been rumored, but had yet to be confirmed by the studio.)
Finally, Warner/HBO also reiterated their announcement earlier this year that the award-winning epic miniseries 'Band of Brothers' would be making its much-anticipated high-def bow this year.
No street dates, or any further tech specs, were issued by the studio, but needless to say, watch this space for the latest news on all future Warner announcements.
In the meantime, we've added listings for all of Warner's announced titles to the "Release Dates Pending" section of our Blu-ray Release Schedule. Stay tuned!
