Injecting another shot of testosterone into the high-def format war, Paramount Home Entertainment will release the catalog classics 'Top Gun' and 'The Jack Ryan Collection' on Blu-ray and HD DVD this fall.

Bringing five of their most requested action titles to high-def, Paramount will rev up their fall next-gen schedule with two major releases.

Hitting stores first on September 25 is the four-title 'Jack Ryan Collection.' The box set will include all of the Tom Clancy-inspired blockbusters to feature the Jack Ryan character, including 'The Hunt for Red October,' 'Patriot Games,' 'Clear and Present Danger' and 'The Sum of All Fears.'

That release will be followed on October 2 by the Tom Cruise mega-hit, 'Top Gun.'

Paramount has not yet announced specs nor supplement information for either of the action releases, though further details are expected shortly.

List price will be $29.95 for 'Top Gun,' and $99.95 for the 'Jack Ryan Collection.'

Note that similar to the Paramount's hit 'Ultimate Missions Collection' released late last year, the studio is not yet announcing any stand-alone editions of the Jack Ryan films. However, if the studio's history with 'Ultimate Missions' is any indication, each of the Jack Ryan titles seem likely to be made available individually at a future date.

We've added both ' 'Jack Ryan Collection' and 'Top Gun' to our Blu-ray Release Schedule and HD DVD Release Schedule, under September 25 and October 2, respectively. Watch this space for more details to come!
