Looks like Warner will continue with these day-and-date combo disc releases
, as they have announced the Mos Def and Bruce Willis flick 16 Blocks
will be available next week both on standard DVD and an HD DVD/DVD combo disc. Just like the first release Rumor Has It
, the list price is $39.98. This may be an interesting trend to watch, what genres and what specific titles get day-and-date releases, combo releases, or extra features. A quick check on Amazon shows the Rumor Has It
combo discs going for $27.97 and the standard definition DVDs retailing for $16.96. Is high definition future proofing worth $11? We will see.
