Universal Releases Blu-ray Plans

Posted April 17, 2008 08:12 AM by Josh Dreuth

Universal StudiosUniversal Studios Home Entertainment has released their plans for shifting their high definition focus from the defunct HD DVD format to Blu-ray. Beginning in July, Universal plans to release all new home video releases on Blu-ray day-and-date with their DVD releases. The first title receiving such treatment will be the Neil Marshall film 'Doomsday'.

That title will be followed by a slew of upcoming films, including 'The Incredible Hulk', 'Wanted', 'Hellboy II: The Golden Army', 'Mamma Mia!', and 'The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor'. You will notice that these films have not yet been released theatrically, meaning dates for their home video release are still a ways off.

On the catalog front, the first three Universal titles will be 'The Mummy', 'The Mummy Returns', and 'The Scorpion King', all which have been given a release date of July 22nd. No specs have been announced for these titles, nor any indication if they would be direct ports from the HD DVD or receive new transfers.

Also on slate for 2008 will be 'American Gangster', 'Knocked Up', 'The 40 Year Old Virgin', 'Miami Vice', 'End of Days', 'U-571', and 'Land of the Dead'. More catalog releases are planned, but were not announced at this time.

I would like to personally thank Universal for this wonderful birthday gift. Paramount: you're on the clock.

Would would have thought that Uni would beat Paramount, which previously released Blu Rays when neutral, to the punch ?

Hellboy II should look amazing in Blu Ray, but we probably won't see that until late fall (it's not even out yet).

American Gangster and Miami Vice, along with Knocked Up might do good, but where are the Bournes ?

And more importantly, what are the plans for Mr Spielberg's films (and the ones he helped make, like BttF)?

Paramount, it's up to you now, you're the last one standing...

I can't remember if I've seen U-571, but very interested in Mummy 1 + 2, 40 yr old virgin, knocked up, and american gangster.

I better be able to buy The Mummy 1 + 2 without the Scorpian King because that movie is dreadful. Only reason I own it now is because I bought the trilogy for like $20 (and had never seen it before buying it). I refuse to buy it again though.

Interested to see end of days as well, but I doubt I'll ever buy it.

Wow, is it just me or is this a horrible offering announced by Universal? I haven't seen American Gangster yet, so I will reserve judgement on that...but they come out of the gate with Mummy? Pretty lame if you ask me.

And why do they have to include titles in their announcment of movies that have yet to be released in the theaters? They act like it's something special. DUH! Every movie you release in the theaters should make it to Blu-Ray from now on. There's no reason that they shouldn't and if they do, it's because your studio is behind the times.

Personally, I'm not impressed. Go back to the drawing board Universal. At the VERY least, you should give us, Evan Almighty, King Kong, Heroes Seasons 1 & 2 (I've read that you are, but why not include that in your Blu-Ray coming out announcement?), The Bourne Trilogy, Lost in Translation, Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, The Game, Children of Men, How The Grinch Stole Christmas, Seabiscuit, The Rundown and Cinderella Man. Then, throw in Back to the Future and the Jurrasic Park films for good measure.

Will be getting Miami Vice and American Gangster, I just hope they push Blu Ray to its technological
limits and not half ass it. As for Paramount, funny how again they are left holding the bag. I hope
they fire the clowns in charge of that circus..

Happy birthday, Josh!

Thank you for this wonderful website that all Blu-ray fans have enjoyed and benefited from for so long, and here's hoping that the boons you brought all of us were richly redoubled in your own personal life.

Oh, and Universal -- you rock, guys!

To Shark,

Dolby True HD is no where near being inferior to LPCM or DTS-HD Master Audio. In fact they are all exactly the same in the end; they are all lossless formats, so there should be no difference in audio clarity.

It's official...Paramount better do something fast. Their chance to beat Universal to the punch has now been lost. Now Paramount is left just standing there with no titles. Universal...we welcome you with open arms...let's get to work bringing some of your great titles to Blu-Ray.

Yeah, it's great news and all....but I seriously hope they get their act together in terms of putting out quality encodes. Universal has always been one of the worst studios for video transfers, and their record on HD DVD speaks for itself.

If these are ports of the HD DVD versions, I won't be buying any of them.

Except maybe Doomsday, 'cause I missed that completely in theatres.

I'm really surprised that Uni beat Paramount to the punch. Paramount is dragging this thing out with Toshiba and it's time to get the blu-gear in High-gear. Thanks Uni!

ClaytonMG, If you think that all video encoding is the same and audio codec are the same you don't know your ass from a hat. For what reason would I bothyer to lie about Video or Audio Codecs. You need to do your home work before you make negitive comments.
