US Movie studios have finally announced which films they will be releasing on Blu-ray discs in Japan.
More than a dozen studios, including Disney, Sony, Paramount, Warner Bros., and Fox, will first release about 75 movies on Blu-ray later this year.
The lineup will include Sony’s “The Da Vinci Code”, and Disney’s “Chicken Little”.
Blu-ray is backed by Sony and Panasonic and is supported by Hitachi, Sharp, Pioneer, Samsung, Apple, and Dell; the discs feature much more storage capacity than rival format HD DVD.
With the new releases, plus the addition of Universal, which has previously not released Blu-ray titles, about 80 percent of high-def films will be on Blu-ray discs.
