Paramount closes the year in Blu

Paramount Home Entertainment has added a number of Blu-Ray titles to their line-up, scheduled for release just before the end of the year.

The list includes Days Of Thunder starring Tom Cruise playing stock car race driver Cole Trickle, whose talent and ambition are surpassed only by his burning need to win. Discovered by businessman Tim Daland (Randy Quaid), Cole is teamed with legendary crew chief and car-builder Harry Hogge (Academy Award. winner Robert Duvall) to race for the Winston Cup at the Daytona 500. A fiery crash nearly ends Cole’s career and he must turn to a beautiful doctor (Nicole Kidman) to regain his nerve and the true courage needed to race, to win and to live. The release will feature Dolby Digital 5.1 TrueHD audio and contain the movie’s trailer as an extra.

Event Horizon is also part of the list, the horror movie about the high-tech, pioneering research spacecraft that had mysteriously vanished, without a trace, on its maiden voyage seven years earlier. But a weak, persistent signal form the long-missing craft prompts a rescue team, headed by the intrepid Captain Miller (Laurence Fishburne), to wing its way through the galaxy on a bold rescue mission.
