The Blu-ray Schedule Heats Up - Continued

 

Another cult followed movie, Oliver Stones brilliant classic 'JFK' also releases on Blu-ray in time for the U.S. election, but with a currently undefined date. 17 years on, the film remains hugely controversial, but most film critics agree that Oliver Stones range of filmic techniques, along with the amazing performances by all involved have well and truly solidified the films place in motion picture history.

 

While Warner Bros have remain tight lipped thus far about the Blu-ray release, the very fact the film is coming (hopefully with re-mastered video) will be an event to look forward to.

JFK has yet to be officially announced for Australia by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.

 

The release of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is important for a variety of reasons. It's the first George Lucas produced film to be released on Blu-ray. It's only the second film from Steven Spielberg to be released. Whilst the first three probably won't be released this year, it certainly bodes well for them.

 

Whilst the film itself has polarized opinions, it certainly made a lot of money. And it's gonna sell, if only fans can complete their collections. Whilst it is yet to be officially announced and we aren't sure of what features it will include, Paramount have confirmed the release with us.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is released on October 30th from Paramount Home Entertainment.

 

So that's four exciting, high profile titles that were not really expected to arrive this year. The best news is that this is only the tip of the iceberg. I can assure you that there is a huge amount of quality catalogue titles that are yet to be officially announced, as well as the majority of this years blockbusters, including Speed Racer, The Dark Knight, The Incredible Hulk, Get Smart, Hellboy II, Hancock, Kung Fu Panda, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, Iron Man and Wall E. Phew. Hope you guys are saving up!
