Blue Underground Previews Blu-ray, Confirms D-BOX Support

Cult and horror home video distributor Blue Underground has begun previewing what will be their first wave of Blu-ray Disc titles via a promo video on their website.

Based on clips in the video and accompanying cover art thumbnails, the first wave will include The Final Countdown, The Bird With The Crystal Plumage, The Stendhal Syndrome, Maniac, Vigilante, and Fire and Ice.

All the discs will come loaded with extras and be presented in 1080p resolution on 50GB discs. Not one but two lossless audio options will be included that are second to none: 7.1 DTS-HD and 7.1 Dolby TrueHD.

In a joint announcement, Blue Underground and D-BOX have confirmed D-BOX Motion Code will appear on select Blue Underground Blu-ray titles. The only title confirmed thus far is The Final Countdown.

We expect to receive firm release dates for the first wave sometime in early July. In the meantime, check out the preview for yourself.
