Sci-fi Blu-ray Wave from Warner Coming Up

Posted April 22, 2010 05:09 AM by Juan Calonge

Warner Bros.An early announcement to UK retailers reveals that Warner Home Video will release a wave of movies on Blu-ray in September, most of them from the science-fiction genre. On September 20, it will release The Exorcist, Forbidden Planet, Lost in Space, Mars Attacks! and Rush Hour. A week later, the studio will release THX 1138 and Timecop.

Some of these titles may also be released around the same time in the US, but not necessarily all. Note that Timecop is a Universal title in the US.

Well, based on my luck, The Exorcist will not be released in the US in September. Let's just hope the UK version will be region free.

Timecop is a definite buy. I hope they do a good job on the transfer as it's one of those cult action titles of the 90's that never got a quality release on DVD. Now all they have to do is announce Demolition Man and my cult cheesy 90's action/sci-fi collection can be complete!

"Wave? Maybe a ripple. Other than The Exorcist, there is nothing here that is really exciting."

Forbidden Planet isn't exciting? Different strokes I guess... but if you don't consider that movie to be a big deal in a 'sci-fi wave', you're in the minority.

Ya, Timecop has always been Universal worldwide, but now the imdb page says "Warner Home Video (2009) (USA) (DVD)" under distributors. I wonder why this happened? Why would a studio suddenly sell the home video rights for some cheesy 90's sci-fi action movie to another studio? Weird, but I'm buying it anyway!

@atexp80:
Demolition Man is coming in a double pack with Assassins in August.

I can only hope it's the special edition of THX because it blows the original away. Also going to snatch up Mars Attacks, Lost in Space and Forbidden Planet.

Now give us Outlander Warner!

Why not RUSH HOUR 2? Why wouldnt they release Rush Hour 1 and Rush Hour 2 on the same date?

And if it's a "wave of SCI-FI releases", what is Rush Hour doing on that list?

PeterTHX
 - Apr 22, 2010

Vote plusVote minus Report as inappropriate

"Outlander" must be the combination of Outland and Highlander

Maybe somebody at Warner thinks Chris Tucker in "Rush Hour" is still playing Ruby Rhod from "The Fifth Element". It's the only reason I can think of for Warner not releasing it with the Comedy wave.

I have been waiting a long time for Forbidden Planet to be released on Blu-ray. It was released on HD-DVD years ago (2006) and I'm wondering what the excuse is for the delay. If the reason was to improve picture or sound quality, that's OK. I'll also pick up The Exorcist and Mars Attacks!

Universal never owned Timecop. It was under Largo Entertainment. The same happened to Dr. Giggles which is why Warner now has the home video rights to both.

Timecop is available on HD-DVD and its friggn gorgeous. Some scenes could be a little sharper, but some would never notice. The Blu should be awesome as well. I'll def. pick it up.

SSBlu I noticed that as well all newline titles are published under EIV unless things have changed reciently.

Its supprising to see warner announce it. Since newline is owned by warner and supply most of the video encodes they might of done a deal with EIV to have it published at the specified time and did the announcement as part of the deal or EIV have reciently lost the rights to all newline titles.

Oh boy, The Exorcist is gonna be really exciting on Blu-Ray. I mean, that's a movie that attempts to scare you with what you actually see, the details on Regans face..this could be nasty stuff. But deliciously gruesome.

I can't believe how many people posted just to say that Exorcist and Rush Hour are not sci-fi. Jeez, get a life! It's just the title of the post because 5 of the 7 movies are sci-fi! It's not like Warner is releasing these with a "Sci-Fi Collection" banner on the cover or anything.
