Warner Unveils Specs for First Blu-ray Titles

Good Night, and Good Luck [Blu-ray Box Art] Following last week's announcement of its first four titles to debut on Blu-ray, Warner has now revealed full specs for each of the releases, which are set to include the same bonus features as found on their HD DVD and standard DVD counterparts.

Due on August 1, 'Good Night, and Good Luck,' 'Rumor Has It...,' 'Training Day' and 'Kiss Kiss Bang Bang' will each be a BD-25 single-layer Blu-ray disc and feature a 1080p-encoded video transfer of the film and Dolby Digital-Plus 5.1.

The titles will also feature the same supplemental content as their fellow HD DVD and standard DVD releases, including audio commentaries, featurettes and deleted scenes ('Training Day' will not, however, include an optional Dolby TrueHD soundtrack as found on the film's HD DVD release).

Warner's Blu-ray strategy comes as somewhat of a departure from current Blu-ray supporting studios Sony and Lionsgate, which so far have largely eschewed including the majority of extras from the standard DVD releases.

Complete details for all four of Warner's initial Blu-ray titles, including box cover art, have been added to our complete Blu-ray Release Schedule.
