Sony Pictures will release its first 50GB Blu-ray disc on Tuesday, making it the first to release a film in the next-generation DVD format on any disk at that capacity.
The first 50GB Blu-ray release from Sony will be of Click featuring Adam Sandler, and two additional Sony titles, Black Hawk Down, and Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, will also be released on 50GB Blu-ray in coming months, the company said.
We're proud to be the first studio to deliver a 50GB Blu-ray Disc title to the marketplace, said David Bishop, President, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
Click will be the first Blu-ray Disc title to include all bonus features from the DVD release in high-definition and also features uncompressed PCM audio. The title will be available to consumers this Tuesday.
The firm also plans to release Black Hawk Down, which grossed more than $100 million at the box office, on November 14, 2006.
With a richly detailed master and long running time, Black Hawk Down is an ideal title to demonstrate Blu-ray's 50GB capability, without any compromise in features or quality, said Don Eklund, an Executive Vice President at Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
Sony Pictures has released a broad selection of high-definition movies since its initial launch on June 20, 2006.
