Warner Home Video has announced the technical specs and special features for the upcoming Blu-ray release of the teen horror flick 'Final Destination', which is due to hit store shelves on April 7th. Coming on a BD-25, video will be presented in 1.85:1 1080p VC-1 accompanied by a 5.1 Dolby TrueHD soundtrack.
Extras for this release include:
Filmmaker's commentary by writer/director James Wong, writer/producer Glen Morgan, editor James Coblentz, and writer Jeffrey Reddick
Actor commentary by Devon Sawa, Kerr Smith, Kristen Cloke, and Chad E. Donella
Isolated Score (5.1) with commentary by composer Shirley Walker
so is it safe to say that Warner and NewLine are past the Lossy DD tracks with new and catalog releases? The last lossy release was Journey to the Center of the Earth, Mongol, and The Women, everything released or announnced beyond that has been DolbyTrueHD, so here is to hoping it stays that way. I still havent recovered from the lousy DD track on Speed Racer.
"does a movie like this need to use a bd-50 though? do all movies need to use bd-50 simply
because they can? "
Unless a movie maxes out the bitrate for video and has lossless audio and still fits on a BD-25, then fine but you are probably only looking at 60 minutes max. So yes, all movies deserve BD-50 treatment.
I like Final Destination 1, but I'm really hoping for #2. That opening scene should be killer, no pun intended, on BD.
