Ultraviolet, an adrenaline-charged sci-fi thriller starring Milla Jovovich Resident Evil Apocalypse, Fifth Element, was filmed entirely in high definition. Ultraviolets stunning visuals, including high-flying action stunt sequences, and audio are dramatically enhanced by the Blu-ray format, making it an ideal way for consumers to experience Blu-ray Disc for the first time. On July 11th, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will release Basic Instinct 2: Risk Addition on Blu-ray. Kung Fu Hustle, Legends of the Fall, Stealth, Species, SWAT and Resident Evil Apocalypse will debut on Blu-ray Disc July 25th. Please contact the SPHE press office for Blu-ray spokesperson availability and artwork. Sony Pictures Home Entertainment to Deliver First Blu-Ray Titles to Retail in One Week; Countdown to Eagerly Awaited New Era in Home Entertainment Begins ndmViewIdnewsview newsId20060613005377 newsLangen Yep countdown begins alright. Lets see, T-Minus 56 days and counting until I can play these movies. Is that the countdown Sony was talking about? And this assumes there are no more delays this is what, like the third one now? Sony Delaying Blu-Ray player until Late August?reffoolwatch and in case you want it from the horses mouth /eCS/Store/en/-/USD/SYDisplayProductInformation-Start?ProductSKUBDPS1 Samsung?newsId3626 The Samsung may indeed ship late this month. I was in compUSA last weekend and they had the pre-order for the Sammy unit on the front page. Who knows how many will actually be available. Sony is delayed to Aug 15th and Pioneer has said some time in Sept. The good news is the players dont seem that buggy from what some people testing beta units have stated. As the battle between DVDRW and DVD-RW writers simply resulted in hybrid writers, the same is likely to take place with the next generation DVD market with BenQ already having plans to introduce a hybrid writer capable of handling both Blu-ray and HD DVD discs. They also plan to offer a hybrid set-top HD recorder which can also read from or record HD broadcasts to either format. Thats great news. If BenQ and LG can spur the Universal Player market then many people will just buy one player and ensure they can play all discs. The Samsung may indeed ship late this month. I was in compUSA last weekend and they had the pre-order for the Sammy unit on the front page. Who knows how many will actually be available. Ya, and I can go pre-order the Sony player, which isnt coming out until August. Pre-order means nothing for the actually shipping date. While the Samsung player might ship this month, the fact you can pre-order it doesnt mean much of anything. We will see when it does in deed start shipping. As far as hybrid drives go, I cant wait. But I wonder how that will or will not effect the studios that are making movies. If universal players become the norm, which format do you make your movie on? Thats a good question. I imagine this scenario for Universal Players. Smaller Studios would go HD DVD to save on production costs. Look at the coverage wed have.
