Universal: 100 HD DVD Titles in 2007
Movie studio Universal, which exclusively supports the HD DVD disc format, said late Thursday that it planned to release more than 100 titles in HD DVD during 2007. It also said that 90 percent of its titles released during the year would be in "combo disc" format, which contains the DVD version of the movie on one side and the HD DVD format on the other.
Among the titles to be released first are The Mummy Returns on January 18, followed by Brokeback Mountain on January 23. After that, Universal said it plans "dozens" of day-and-date releases of new release titles. Catalog titles to be offered this year include The Bourne Identity, Meet The Fockers, American Pie, Erin Brockovich, and Liar Liar, among others.
