Blade II Blu-ray (Updated)

Posted April 2, 2012 11:05 AM by Josh Katz

Warner Bros.In July, Warner Home Entertainment will bring Blade II to Blu-ray. The second installment in the popular action-horror franchise finds vampire slayer Blade (Wesley Snipes, Brooklyn's Finest) relocated to Europe in an effort to save his mentor Whistler (Kris Kristofferson, The Sailor Who Fell from Grace with the Sea).

However, Blade's mission takes an unexpected turn when he finds himself allied with the Bloodpack, a team of skilled vampire warriors. Their common objective: to eradicate the Reaper colony, a group of disturbingly mutated bloodsuckers deadly enough to eradicate all life - both dead and undead - from the planet.

Directed by Guillermo Del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth), the film's supporting cast includes Luke Goss (Hellboy II: The Golden Army), Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead), Thomas Kretschmann (King Kong), Matt Schulze (Fast Five), Donnie Yen (Ip Man), and Ron Perlman (Sons of Anarchy).

Update: Warner's Blu-ray presents the feature in its 1.85:1 original aspect ratio (incorrectly listed as 2.39:1 on Warner's press release) with a 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track. In addition, the disc includes a number of supplements, such as all materials previously available on the DVD special edition as well as these Blu-ray-exclusive bonuses:
  • All-new commentary with Guillermo Del Toro
  • Director's Notebook feature
  • Blade II: Blood Brothers featurette with writer David Goyer
Blade II is expected to street on July 10th and is available to pre-order now.

I knew they wouldent get away with releasing just 1 and 3 and not 2.

That's more like it. I wonder why the three week delay between 1, 3 and 2.

This is my personal favourite of the Blade films and I'm happy to see it coming to Blu in the U.S.

I've held off on the Canadian versions of the Blade films for a while now in hopes that these Warner ones would be better put-together. Crossing my fingers for some nice transfers, good extras and cool packaging (a slipcover would be nice, but it's doubtful).

I bet they didn't plan on releasing it, until they read all of the hate coming from us members requesting the best Blade of the series. Thanks WB! I'll be buying all 3.

This probably explains why Amazon for the last week stopped taking pre-orders to 1 & 3 because Warner's was gearing up for Blade II. Still a bummer that Trinity only has the theatrical cut. Either way I'm in the the trilogy.

Awesome, would not have been right without. But why announce 1&3 separately? Strange. No boxset? Though probably I'll just get 1&2.

Thank *&^%ing Christ. I like Blade, but Blade II is by far the best of the series (Blade: Trinity, imho is a steaming pile of crap).

All new commentary. I'm sure that Del Toro wanted to do some work on the BD release and perhaps scheduling caused a delay on hammering down a date for #2. Just surprised they didn't bump the other releases back a few to get them all out the same day. 1 and 3 were only just announced as it is. Just seems like a poor marketing strategy. *shrug*

The only reason I saw this opening day was because Danny-John Jules (Cat from Red Dwarf) was in it.
I don't remember all that much of the movie, but I remember liking it, so I'll buy it along with #'s 1 & 3...

Ahhhh, so WB got cold feet from the negative posts in recent forums? Much like Sony when they decided to add all the special features on Girl with the Dragon Tattoo after 99% hated the commentary-only track?

If the features are exactly the same as the 2-disc DVD and if the PQ and AQ are as great as they SHOULD, then I'm sold.

I've been waiting for quite some time for the New Line, US release. It should be superior to that of the Canadian version. Picture quality should be much improved with better black levels, whilst maintaining a high level of shadow detail and clarity. Look for bit rates in the high 20's to mid to high 30's.

However, the biggest improvement should be sound quality. A lot more dynamic range with deeper bass, which the DVD version was famous for. I was a bit disappointed in the sound quality of the Canadian release. From what I'm hearing, Guillermo is involved in this latest release so any prior short comings should be resolved. As a matter of fact knowing Guillermo ------ or at least what I've read about him ---- look for a spectacular transfer, if he has anything to say about.

How about Love Jones? I have been waiting for that since Blu-ray's inception.
