For 75 years, 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment has been a major contender in Hollywood, creating and distributing some of the greatest movies in the history of Hollywood. To properly celebrate the occasion, the studio has just announced that for the next 12 months there will be a large number of new releases, including a number of very cool first-time Blu-Ray titles.
On the DVD side, the studio wil re-release a number of titles and also offer double-feature, triple-feature and quad-feature releases of some of their most popular movies. The most interesting part, however, is in the high definition sector, as Fox has just revealed plans to bring the following films to Blu-Ray Disc for the first time before the end of the year.
ALIEN ANTHOLOGY will feature all four “Alien” films digitally restored and available together in a six disc set packed with extras. THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW (35TH ANNIVERSARY) with new special features including live cast re-enactments and RHPS Karaoke.
THE SOUND OF MUSIC (45TH ANNIVERSARY), digitally restored with 7.1 audio and never before seen interactivity and features. WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE’S ROMEO & JULIET with a new high definition transfer and BD Live special features including Live Lookup. MOULIN ROUGE! featuring a new high definition transfer and BD Live special features, and last, but not least, THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS, in an all-new Director’s Definitive Cut and interviews with Daniel Day Lewis.
Well, if that isn’t reason to celebrate, I don’t know what is.
