Paramount announces Blu-ray, HD-DVD titles


Well, CES is here and that means plenty of Blu-ray and HD-DVD announcements, even if we still don't know exactly when we will have players for either format yet. Paramount has announced mirrored launch lineups for their "Paramount High Definition" series. It will be interesting to see how available selection plays into the format battle brewing for 2006.

"The titles scheduled for launch include recent hits such as "Four Brothers" and "Sahara," sci-fi thrillers "Aeon Flux" and "Sky Captain & the World of Tomorrow," action-adventures "The Italian Job" and "Tomb Raider," the renowned music documentary "U2: Rattle and Hum" and Tim Burton's "Sleepy Hollow." Rounding out the debut slate are "We Were Soldiers" and "Manchurian Candidate" starring Academy Award(R) winners Mel Gibson and Denzel Washington, respectively.

The 2006 line-up continues with the debut of a "Mission Impossible" trilogy for HD DVD which includes the new "Mission Impossible 3," "Mission Impossible" and "Mission Impossible 2," scheduled for later in the year.

The only one of these movies I'm looking forward to is "The Italian Job", love that Marky Mark guy.
