Sony’s August Blu-ray Details: Blue Thunder, Starman, St. Elmo’s Fire, About Last Night and Go

Sony has five catalog Blu-ray Disc releases scheduled for August that we have known about for some time. Now I can share the full scoop for each release and in the case of all but one, the finalized Blu-ray cover art.

four of the five catalog titles will be released on August 11: Blue Thunder, Starman, About Last Night, and St. Elmo’s Fire. The fifth, Go, will arrive a week later on August 18.


Each film will be offered in its original aspect ratio at 1080p resolution with 5.1 Dolby TrueHD audio.

Bonus features are mostly rehashed with a couple Blu-ray exclusives as noted below. BD-Live access is standard on all discs.

Where it gets tricky is pricing which unexpectedly is not even across the board. Starman’s SRP is set at $28.95 while Blue Thunder, St. Elmo’s Fire and About Last Night are $34.95, no doubt due to the inclusion of bonus features which Starman lacks. Go does not have a retail price yet but will likely land at $34.95.

All of the titles are available for pre-order at Amazon.com which you can quickly access via our Blu-ray Pre-Order page linked below the cover art.
