'Dial M for Murder - 3D' Announced for Blu-ray 3D!

Posted Fri Jun 22, 2012 at 10:50 AM PDT by

Alfred Hitchcock's 1954 thriller comes to Blu-ray 3D in October!

In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Brothers has set 'Dial M for Murder - 3D' for a Blu-ray 3D release on October 9.

The film about a man who plots to murder his wife stars Ray Milland, Grace Kelly and Robert Cummings and is currently ranked #194 on IMDb.com's Top 250.

According to WHV's Executive Vice President and General Manager of Theatrical Catalog, Jeff Baker, "Given the current trend toward 3D, we're delighted to be releasing this authentic classic 3D. This is not a conversion from 2D to 3D, but an original work, with a big tip of the cap to MPI, that illustrates just how good 3D can be. The Warner library has the largest number of classic 3D titles (15) of any studio and over the years we've been looking to release them, but not until now has the technology been perfected to the point we can do that. We're hoping 'Dial M for Murder' is the first of several classic 3D films to be released, with the long-awaited, much requested 'House of Wax' expected next."

Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements include Hitchcock and Dial M, 3D: A Brief History, and Original Theatrical Trailer.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray release is $35.99.
