Universal Studios Home Entertainment has revealed the specs for the upcoming Blu-ray release of 'The Mummy', due to hit store shelves on July 22nd, a few weeks after the DVD re-release. The film, which has been digitally remastered, will be presented on a BD-50 with 2.35:1 1080p video and a 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack.
Extras include audio commentaries with the cast and crew, four featurettes ("Visual and Special Effects Formation", "An Army to Rule the World", "Building a Better Mummy", and "Unraveling the Legacy of the Mummy"), deleted scenes, and a storyboard comparison. Exclusive to the Blu-ray release will be Universal's "U-Control" in-movie experience and a picture-in-picture behind-the-scenes look into the making of 'The Mummy'.
Codec no bar, Universal seems to be on a roll by offering the intelligent and cool looking U-CONTROL feature and DTS-HD MA. Looks like they have learned the authoring tools quickly unlike Warner. I think Mummy will be transferred to Blu-ray from the newly created DI. Bravo UNIVERSAL.
Very sweet. If they include a movie ticket with Mummy Returns as well I'd buy both. I told my old
man I'd take him to number 3 cause he loved the other two. We'll just walk up in different lines like
we're not together so we could each use the free tickets from the discs. Done it before
Some good news. Ill be looking forward to this and the mummy returns. The scorpion king was
absolute crap. Wonder how the new will shape up considering the amount of time thats passed since
I'm definately going to buy this one and the Mummy Returns, but I can't believe in the new movie Evelyn is going to be played Maria Bello I don't like when they use different charecters for previous movies.
This is good news. I just watched this the other night on Starz HD. I was so excited. Then the movie started. WAAAAY too much film grain. You could see lines and specs of dust and fuzz all over the transfer. At one point there was a yellow line 1 inch wide down the middle of the whole screen. I am glad to hear they are remastering it my b-day is july 20th nice present for me :0
