One of the most highly-anticipated next-gen titles yet, as first announced late last month, 'Superman Returns' will hit HD DVD on November 28 as a combo disc, day-and-date with the standard DVD release.
Complete details have come in for the release, which will be an HD-30/DVD-9 double-side disc, currently the largest capacity the HD DVD format allows. In addition to the feature in 1080p/VC-1 video, the release has been confirmed to include a Dolby TrueHD track along with a standard Dolby Digital 5.1 surround mix as well.
Extras include the multi-part "Requiem for Krypton: Making 'Superman Returns'" documentary running a whopping three hours, the "Resurrecting Jor-El" featurette, additional scenes and an easter egg of previously unseen behind-the-scenes material.
Warner has set a $39.95 list price for 'Superman Returns.'
The studio has also just released the box art for the December 5 release of 'Poseidon,' which is now another HD DVD/DVD combo disc. Specs still remain unannounced, though rumors continue to circulate that exclusive to the HD DVD release will be a new, extended Director's Cut of the picture. We'll certainly let you know if the rumors are confirmed.
We've updated both listings to our complete HD DVD Release Schedule. Stay tuned!
