Pledging continued support for HD DVD in 2007, Warner Home Video this morning announced more new theatrical and catalog titles due for release on the format in the coming year.

Following a press conference by the HD DVD Promotions Group held yesterday at the show, which revealed a few of Warner's major 2007 release plans, the studio has issued its own press release promising a bountiful twelve months for HD DVD fanatics.

Among the top-tier theatrical titles on the way include 'Blood Diamond,' 'We Are Marshall' and the animated blockbuster 'Happy Feet,' plus such catalog favorites as 'Ocean's 11' and 'Ocean's 12,' and the Steve McQueen classics 'Bullitt' and 'The Getaway.'

The studio also finally set an official date for Martin Scorsese's Oscar sure thing 'The Departed,' which is now scheduled for a February 13 HD DVD release.

Finally, Warner also crowned its number one 2006 HD DVD seller, 'Superman Returns,' though the studio did not release exact sales figures. The studio also boased a claim of six of the top ten spots on the HD DVD best-seller lists for the year.

We've added all of Warner's new titles to the Release Dates Pending section of our HD DVD Release Schedule, and of course we'll post full specs for all upcoming titles as soon as they are officially announced.
