Warner Home Video (WHV) today announced that it will launch its first wave of titles on Blu-ray Disc.
On August 1, WHV will release four titles -- "Training Day"; "Good Night, and Good
Luck"; "Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang"; and "Rumor Has It" -- on the Blu-ray format to support
the initial roll out of Blu-ray players in North America. "Training Day" and "Good
Night, and Good Luck" will be available for $28.99 SRP and "Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang" and
"Rumor Has It" will be available for $34.99 SRP. Future waves of Blu-ray launch titles
will be announced in the coming weeks.
"Warner Bros. is a leader in home entertainment and it is our ongoing mission to provide
consumers with a broad choice of options for the next generation, in-home experience,"
said Ron Sanders, President of Warner Home Video.
Blu-ray Discs offer resolution six times higher than standard definition DVDs,
extraordinarily vibrant contrast and color in addition to beautifully crisp sound.
Warner Blu-ray Discs introduce instant access to extra features with the use of a
seamless menu-bar that allows viewers to enjoy features and settings without leaving or
interrupting the film.
The first wave of Warner titles include two new releases, a catalog favorite and a title
new to the high definition format: the critically acclaimed Oscar nominated drama "Good
Night, and Good Luck" starring David Strathairn and George Clooney; Academy Award
winning, "Training Day" starring Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke; Robert Downey Jr.
and Val Kilmer's noir comedy caper "Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang"; and Rob Reiner's clever
romantic comedy starring Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Costner, Mark Ruffalo and Shirley
MacLaine, "Rumor Has It."
