Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 3D Blu-ray Announced

Posted June 10, 2010 03:30 AM by Juan Calonge

Sony PicturesSony Pictures Home Entertainment has announced the release of the first Blu-ray 3D title to be sold individually in the US: the CG animated adventure Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. It will be available "at select retailers" from June 22 (yes, less than two weeks from now), timed with the upcoming launch of Sony Electronics' 3D capable HDTVs and Blu-ray players.

The BD will also feature 3D sneak peeks of Open Season and Monster House, also coming soon to Blu-ray 3D.

A 2D high definition version of the film will be included for viewing on existing Blu-ray players.

The 3D BD of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs will also be offered free with the purchase of Sony 3D HDTVs.

"We are thrilled to announce the first Blu-ray 3D 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."

This Blu-ray 3D was mastered at Colorworks and authored at Sony Digital Authoring Center (DAC).

Special features include:
  • 3D sneak previews:
    • Open Season
    • Monster House
  • Early development scenes
  • Extended scenes
  • Progression reels with introductions by visual FX supervisor Rob Bredow
  • Music Video: Miranda Cosgrove, "Raining Sunshine"
  • Behind the scenes of "Raining Sunshine"
  • A Recipe for Success: The Making of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs
  • Key Ingredients: The Voices of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs

I wonder if 3D will takeoff with the outrageous pricing of 3D BD titles in comparison to the 2D equivalent release. Out of curiousity, I just visited Amazon.com and they have the 2D version of this movie selling for $17.99 and the 3D version is $35.99. I certainly won't be paying twice as much for a movie just to enjoy it in 3D. Just MHO!

Amazon has the price higher than some select retailers. If you look at the list price for the 2d and 3d versions they actually list for the same thing, $39.98. Amazon and other retailers will have good sales on the 2d version now to clearance it out. Best Buy will have Tye 3d version for $29.99 release week. The price on this title is equivalent to a list price on a Disney combo pack. It should retail about $5-10 more than the 2d version. Besides, if youhave enough money to buy a 3D tv right now, I'm sure $10 extra bucks would be a drop in the bucket to get a full 3D title. Prices will drop as the adoption grows. Just like Blu-ray and DVD titles used to be $30 when they first came out. I for one am glad to see a title available at retail without having to buy the tv to get it.

I loved this movie, and it will look great in 3D. I'm probably a couple years away from considering it as a purchase though. Let's see if 3D takes off...

I imagine that the price of this on Amazon will be down to $27.99 or so by the time it ships.

The UK version of this movie is considerably less expensive on Amazon UK but I'm not sure if it will be region free or not.

YES! So glad it's coming out so early, and yet more 3D BD announcements! I actually downloaded the 3D trailers for Monster House and Open Season that said "Coming soon to 3D Blu-ray", but I didn't know if it was another region. So VERY COOL that they are in the pipeline!

I think it's now safe to start selling all the BDs of films that hit theaters in 3D.

Cue haters.

And in come the haters! Obviously people care about 3D. There's this little movie called Avatar. Maybe you've heard of it. 73% of it's box office take was for 3D showings.

Yes, it's SO AWFUL that a cool new OPTIONAL technology is out! OH THE HUMANITY!

Finally a catlog avalible on its own not exclusively tied to an idiotic bundle. Sony seems to be the only studio who actually care about 3Ds growth.

Director Bill Hader's commentary, only on the DVD included in the BD package, isn't listed as a supplement. Looks like those of us interested in such things and who held off on buying the 2D BD back in January will now have to perhaps Netflix the DVD to hear the commentary. Here's hoping this does not start a possible trend of high-priced, movie-only 3D BDs with supps largely on the separate 2D release.

...one question though. Where's the commentary track? That was included on the last edition of the movie and it's missing here. Hopefully it's still there with the new edition.

Kick Ass! Just two more weeks! I'm counting the days.

And a couple more in the works! I loved Monster House, didn't see Open Season though. Looking forward to being able to watch the trailers in 3D.

That awesome! Only 2wks away for my 3D fix. I really like this movie anyways and didnt buy it because I knew it was coming to 3D. Too bad I'll have to buy every other animated blu over again. Maybe I will sell my 2D versions to my coworkers.

Yes the piece of crap Avatar made all of that money because it capitalized on the 3D technology which is just a gimmick. Christopher Nolan did not need the 3D to attract viewers for The Dark Knight or Batman Begins. Yes both were released in Imax ,but only to take advantage of the screen size and stadium seating. Imax doesn't need to be 3D in order for someone to enjoy it because it has the ability of showing film in 70mm as opposed to 35mm. Listen to Roger Ebert, our minds are capable of producing a 3-dimensional image thanks to the principle of perspective. 3D only adds an artificial layer and causes strain on the optic nerve. Why anyone would want to pay extra for an artificial layer and a headache is beyond my comprehension.
