Warner launches more high definition in January

We just got word that Warner Home Video has slated two more Blu-Ray titles and a HD-DVD release for release in January as well – namely GoodFellas and Scooby-Doo: The Movie.

Available on HD-DVD already, the Blu-Ray version will offer up Martin Scorsese’s GoodFellas in pretty much the same fashion. Based on the true-life best seller “Wiseguy” by Nicholas Pileggi and backed by a dynamic pop/rock oldies soundtrack “GoodFellas” explores the criminal life like no other movie. It’s an electrifying, fact-inspired tale of living – and dying.

Also coming is Scooby-Doo: The Movie in both HD-DVD and Blu-Ray. Scooby-Doo and his clever crime-solving cohorts Fred (Freddie Prinze, Jr.), Daphne (Sarah Michelle Gellar), Shaggy (Matthew Lillard) and Velma (Linda Cardellini) are individually summoned to Spooky Island to investigate a series of paranormal incidents at the ultra-hip Spring Break hot spot. Concerned that his frightfully popular resort might truly be haunted, Spooky Island owner Emile Mondavarious (Rowan Atkinson) tries to reunite those notoriously meddling detectives to solve the mystery before his supernatural secret scare away the college crowds. Scooby and the gang will have to overcome their personal differences and forget everything they think they know about fake ghouls and phony creatures to crack the case, save themselves and possibly…the world.

Serving up the movie in glorious 1080p format with Dolby Digital Plus audio tracks, the discs will also contain the extras previously found on the DVD version. These extras include a Cast Commentary tRack as well as a Filmmaker’s Commentary Track and Additional Scenes. Also included are Featurettes and the Behind-The-Scenes Documentary.

These high definition releases will be in stores on January 16. Expect to see a $28.98 sticker price for each of them.
