Default Fox announces Die Hard Triology, Die Hard 4.0, and FF-RotSS

Yup, it's true

Quote:
IFA 2007
BERLIN & LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Cementing its intention to release at least one state-of-the-art title per month, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment (TCFHE) today announced worldwide Blu-ray new release plans for the $267 million global box-office family favorite FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER (OCT. 2 North America/OCT. 9 International) and the $348 million global box-office action powerhouse LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD (NOV. 20 North America/OCT. 28 International) day-and-date with the BD release of the DIE HARD TRILOGY. The announcement further supports TCFHE’s aggressive global Blu-ray Disc release strategy that includes 29 new release and “must-have” catalog titles from Fox and MGM that runs through the end of the 2007 calendar year.

The only high-definition packaged media universally supported by the film, music, gaming and computer industries, BD is the #1 selling high-definition packaged media.

“On a worldwide basis, BD is averaging nearly 70% market-share per week of all high definition titles sold this year and, in the U.S., it is out-performing HD DVD by 2 to 1; in some territories the ratio is 3 to 1,” noted Mike Dunn, President Worldwide, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

“Given the retail landscape this holiday season, we expect the sales gap between Blu-ray and HD DVD to grow significantly wider as the most anticipated films of the year debut exclusively on the Blu-ray format.”

“In fact, once our Blu-ray consumers, and those still on the fence, experience the advanced BD-J interactivity games available on FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER and LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD, they’ll realize what we’ve been telling them all along – Blu-ray is really the only way,” continued Dunn.
I'm deffinately picking up the Die Hard movies!!

I like how Fox is pushing the interactive side of Blu-Ray. Warner will probably follow suite with proper interactive features by the end of this year.

I'm looking forward to seeing BD-J used to it's full potential, especially when it starts doing things that HD DVD can't do

All of the IME content authored to date has been in BD-J 1.0. I suspect that all of the announced Fox titles will work just fine on most, if not all, Blu-Ray players. BD-J Profile 1.1 adds PiP, and Profile 2.0 adds web-enabled IME.
