With the continued support of five major studios, the HD DVD Promotions Group has issued a new press release touting the format's summer 2007 release schedule, including a peek at more upcoming titles.
Led by HD DVD-exclusive backer Universal Studios Home Entertainment, over 70 HD DVD titles are now due for release throughout the first half of 2007.
The press release (which can be read here in full), outlines every title officially announced on the format through early summer, including Universal's most extensive batch of recently-unveiled June catalog releases, as well as such major hits as DreamWorks' first foray into next-gen, 'Dreamgirls,' and Warner's just-announced 'Matrix' trilogy box sets.
But most notable is the preview included at the end of the release of Universal's July HD DVD line-up, which the studio has not yet officially announced (though it has been long been rumored on the web). Among the hits due in that wave include 'Shaun of the Dead,' 'Dante's Peak,' 'Streets of Fire,' 'In Good Company' and 'The Bourne Identity.'
Also sprinkled into the schedule are a number of music releases due in June which have also not been given official announcements, including new HD DVD releases from such classic bands as Yes, Deep Purple and Santana.
We'll keep you posted as soon as the titles in the press release are given officially scheduled release dates by their respective distributors.
We've also added all the previously-unannounced titles to the "Release Dates Pending" section of our complete HD DVD Release Schedule. Watch this space!
