Timed with the upcoming launch of Sony Electronics' 3D capable BRAVIA LCD HDTVs and Blu-ray players, the UK branch of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment announced today the release of the studio's first Blu-ray 3Dô title in the United Kingdom: Sony Pictures Animation's comedy adventure Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, debuting June 14. This Blu-ray 3Dô was mastered at Colorworks and authored at Sony Digital Authoring Center (DAC).
This release is optimised for the latest 3D playback devices and eyewear, and includes a 2D high definition version of the film that can be viewed on existing Blu-ray players. It offers "a variety of delicious special features" and will also feature sneak peeks in 3D of Sony Pictures Animation's Open Season, also coming soon to Blu-ray 3Dô.
"We are thrilled to announce the first Blu-ray 3Dô titles from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment," said SPHE worldwide president David Bishop. "We drove the industry in Blu-ray adoption and are now leading the way with compelling 3D content for the home. The addition of 3D showcases the versatility of Blu-ray and further demonstrates why it is being adopted by the mainstream as the home entertainment format of choice."
Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs will be available on Blu-ray 3Dô, bundled with select Sony Electronics 3D televisions and Blu-ray players, and will be sold separately at select retailers for an RRP of £24.99.
