Individual 'Bourne' Films Announced as Blu-ray/DVD Flipper Combos

Posted Tue Dec 1, 2009 at 02:00 PM PST by

Fans who held off on purchasing the box set earlier this year will find an added bonus in January.

Universal has announced 'The Bourne Identity,' 'The Bourne Supremacy,' and 'The Bourne Ultimatum' starring Matt Damon as super spy Jason Bourne for individual Blu-ray releases on January 19.

Specs and supplements are assumed to be identical to the discs found in the previously released 'The Bourne Trilogy' box set, however with these releases Universal is dusting off the double-sided flipper concept from the HD DVD days -- meaning one side of the disc will be a Blu-ray and the other will be a DVD.

"Universal's flipper discs are the perfect way for consumers to future-proof their collections while still enjoying their favorite movies on all their existing DVD players," said Craig Kornblau, President of Universal Studios Home Entertainment. "The flipper disc offers an easy way for viewers to convert to Blu-ray now or at any time in the future, confident in the fact they will be able to experience their home entertainment purchases in the highest quality picture and sound when they do."

Suggested list price for each Blu-ray is undetermined at this time.
