Sony has finally announced the release of movies on 50GB Blu-ray discs that will be released by the end of the year.
The latest Adam Sandler flick, “Click”, will be available on 10 October, while “Black Hawk Down” gets high-def treatment by 14 November. “Talladega Nights; The Ballad of Ricky Bobby” joins its 50GB siblings on 12 December.
Although “Click” may seem an odd choice to herald in the era of 50GB discs, it was shot entirely in high-definition with plenty of extra content to fill up the disc. This added content includes an audio commentary, four deleted scenes, and seven featurettes.
“Black Hawk Down” will be the first Blu-ray disc to feature Blu-Wizard, which is a “unique playlist technology” that lets consumers customise how they watch special features. On this disc, extras include an audio commentary with author Mark Bowden, screenwriter Ken Nolan, producer Jerry Bruckhimer, director Ridley Scott, and US Special Forces Veterans ’93; as well as “The Essence of Combat—Making Black Hawk Down”, and several featurettes.
Fans of “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby” will be pleased to hear that the disc includes the Unrated Edition of the film, as well as many extra features.
