The Mummy (1999) On November 28, Universal Studios Home Entertainment will debut four new HD DVD titles, led by the $200 million-grossing blockbuster 'The Mummy.'

Additional titles due on Nov. 28 include the comedy smash 'Meet the Parents,' and the cult favorites 'Dune' and 'An American Werewolf in London.'

Each release includes 1080p/VC-1 video transfers plus Dolby Digital-Plus 5.1 surround tracks (no Dolby TrueHD audio this time). 'American Werewolf' will also be the lone HD DVD/DVD combo in the bunch, featuring an additional DTS 5.1 surround track on the flipside of the disc.

Details on supplements have not yet been announced, but note that 'Dune' will feature the 137-minute theatrical cut of the film only.

Universal has set a $28.99 retail price for the titles, except 'An American Werewolf in London,' which goes for the combo price of $39.99.

The latest specs for all have been added to our HD DVD Release Schedule.
