Black Christmas (2006)

The Weinstein Co. is shuffling its upcoming HD DVD line-up, moving the late spring releases 'Black Christmas' and 'Harsh Times' back one month to early summer.

Both titles had been scheduled for a May 8 release, but the studio confirmed late Tuesday that they have now been slotted for June 12.

The Weinstein Co. has also revealed full details for both titles. Tech specs include 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 transfers, plus full-blown Dolby TrueHD 5.1 surround tracks on each.

Extras include two making-of featurettes, seven deleted scenes and three alternate endings on 'Black Christmas,' while 'Harsh Times' gets a lone high-def trailer gallery.

Each title will list for a suggested $29.99.

We've added full specs for both titles to our complete HD DVD Release Schedule, under June 12. Stay tuned for box cover art in the days ahead...
