'Patch Adams,' 'Cat People' Lead Universal September HD DVD Wave
Tags: Disc Announcements, Universal (all tags)
Due in stores September 25, all three titles will boast the studio's standard 1080p/VC-1 transfers, and -- in what appears to be a newfound, unilateral support for high-resolution audio -- Dolby TrueHD 5.1 surround tracks.
'Patch Adams' and 'Cat People' are both set to include all of the same supplements as their standard-def DVD counterparts, including audio commentary, featurettes and more. ('The Getaway,' like the previous DVD edition, will be featureless.)
Universal has set a suggested $29.98 list price for each.
We've added all three titles to our HD DVD Release Schedule, under September 25. Stay tuned for box art to be revealed in the coming days.
