The 2009 horror movie My Bloody Valentine will splatter its way onto 3D Blu-ray exclusively at Best Buy October 5th. This will mark the first live-action motion picture shot natively in 3D to hit the format. The film will be presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, with 7.1 DTS-HD MA sound. No special features have been announced at this time.
About bloody time too. I've gotten so tired of seeing this film going for exorbitant prices on eBay(chances are that those who purchased them didn't realise they were getting the red/green version). I'm sure that a lot of people will heave a big sigh and say the same as I did at the start of this post.
Normally I don't like modern-day horror films but I was persuaded to go and see this in the cinema and, while a couple of scenes(for me, that is) were somewhat stomach-churning, on the whole I enjoyed the movie.
Consequently, when my girl wanted me to get the disc when it was first released, I persuaded her to wait since those versions wouldn't be very watchable with those cheap plastic glasses. Now I'm sure she'll thank me(hopefully in a highly appropriate manner) for making her wait for an "official" version.
Nice! I am glad I had held off on the Anaglyph 3D release when it hit shelves awhile back. (only because I never got around to buying it when it was on sale) I will definately be picking this up from BestBuy on October 5th.
Hopefully it will be in the 24.99 price range or a little less, definately not expecting much lower than 24.99 if that.
"I'll buy it to support the format, then sell it off once I've watched it once, since I won't be able to rent it."
That logic doesn't work. If you buy it to "support the format" and then sell it, it doesn't help. Then two people get to watch it and the studios don't get any extra money. It would help the format if you bought it and kept it or threw it in the garbage, because then the next guy has to buy a new copy as well.
Selling used copies doesn't generate support for the format.
Grifter, thanks for giving me lessons in logic...But I'll stick with my original plan. I would never normally buy this movie, but I'm curious to see how the first live action title turns out on my 3DTV. Lionsgate selling one copy to me will help the format more than me Not buying it... That's simply all I was trying to say. Plus someone might want to buy it used at a better price so they can watch it in 2D for the time being until they have a 3D TV. Lionsgate and Best Buy will be watching the release week sales numbers on this closely. It's often first week sales on a title that influence studios to dig deeper into their catalog. I want to support any early 3D content so we can get more on the backend!
Awesome news! I've had fun with every 3D Blu-ray I've seen so far, but there are only so many animated kids' films I can take. I'm delighted that a good old trashy horror movie is making its 3D Blu-ray debut at last. Let this be the start of a trend!
Lionsgate has some really good releases as far as variety and extras go. I recieved Secretary, Wonderland, Open Water/Open Water 2, Bad Lieutenant, Blair Witch Project, Hard Candy and High Tension to review. I love reviewing their movies since I tend towards horror anyway. Their only releases I didn't get was this week for review was My Bloody Valentine and Deep Blue Sea (which Warners is releasing on Blu) and 2001 Maniacs because I didn't want it.
Just saw the Best Buy ad for 10/5 and this will be selling for $34.99 on release day. I dont have a 3D TV but I never got around to getting this movie on blu-ray so assuming that it will play in 2D just fine I will pick up this version.
