Weinstein/Genius January HD DVD Box Art Tryptych

Weinstein Co./Genius continues to leak out info (very) slowly for its pending January slate of HD DVD titles, today releasing box art which further hint at specs.

The company's second next-gen wave of titles will include the indie hits 'Lucky Number Slevin,' Kevin Smith's 'Clerks II' and the horror opus 'Pulse.'

Genius sent along box art for all three titles, though full specs remain elusive. But it looks like 'Pulse' will be coming in an Unrated version, and 'Clerks II' with six hours of bonus materials, so much of it in fact that it will take two discs to hold it all, making the release a bit of a rarity for HD DVD.

Oddly, Weinstein/Genius has still not announced a release date for the wave -- only that they are coming sometime in January.

We've added all the specs that we know, plus cover art, to our HD DVD Release Schedule. Stay tuned for further details and street date when they are finally announced.

We also set up dedicated threads for all the titles in our new Forums area -- click the following links to discuss the 'Clerks II' HD DVD release, the 'Pulse' HD DVD release and the 'Lucky Number Slevin' HD DVD release.
