'Grinch' HD DVD Ready to Steal Christmas

Posted Tue Sep 12, 2006 at 10:15 AM PDT by
Universal Studios Home Entertainment will roll out another HD DVD/DVD combo disc when it releases the blockbuster 'Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas' in time for the holidays.

Hoping plenty of new HD DVD owners will want to find 'Grinch' stuffed in their yuletide stockings, Universal will release the $250 million-grossing Jim Carrey favorite on November 21 as a HD-15/DVD-9 combo platter.

The high-def side of the disc will feature a 1.85:1 widescreen transfer in 1080p/VC-1 video, along with a Dolby Digital-Plus soundtrack. The standard-def flipside will include all of the same extras as the current DVD release.

Universal has set a suggested list price of $34.95 for the combo.

Complete details, including box art, have now been added to our complete HD DVD Release Schedule.
