Following its official return to Blu-ray yesterday, Paramount has announced plans to re-issue eight previously-discontinued catalog titles on the format in late-May.

On May 20, the studio will bring back to market nearly a dozen titles that had been pulled from store shelves last year following Paramount's move to HD DVD-exclusivity.

The complete list of re-activated titles includes: 'Aeon Flux,' 'Babel,' 'Black Snake Moan,' 'Dreamgirls,' 'Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow,' 'Sleepy Hollow,' 'The Untouchables' and 'The Warriors.'

According to the studio, the titles are identical to the original releases, with the same tech specs and supplement details.

Paramount has not yet confirmed suggested list prices for Blu-ray re-issues, but we'll keep you posted.
