Universal UK Blu-ray Coming Soon - Big Update

image

Universal Pictures have several UK Blu-ray Disc titles due to arrive over the coming months though firm release dates are currently hard to come by. Recently however that has started to change, with a more accurate schedule emerging...

20th October 2008: Leatherheads.

27th October 2008: Step Up, Step Up 2 The Streets.

24th November 2008: American Gangster, Casino, Miami Vice.

1st December 2008: The 40-Year-Old Virgin, The Kingdom, Knocked Up, Land of the Dead, The Mummy, The Mummy Returns, Rise: Blood Hunter, The Scorpion King, The Thing.

Region coding is TBC, though none of the sleeves on the titles we have specs for carry any region code icons suggesting these will be region all. In fact, some of these titles (Leatherheads, Step Up 2 The Streets and Land of the Dead for example) look to be the US discs in UK packaging.

All dates are subject to change. Specs follow for most titles…
