    The Lost Boys

    Debuts on Blu-ray™ Hi-Def July 29

    Burbank, Calif., June 2, 2008 – “Vamp-out” with the gang when The Lost Boys makes its way to high-definition DVD on July 29 from Warner Home Video. The comedy-horror cult film that won the 1988 Saturn Award for “Best Horror Film,” will be released on Blu-ray™ Hi-Def.

    Also on July 29th, prepare to sink your teeth the long-awaited and highly-anticipated next chapter of the cult phenomenon when Warner Premiere’s Lost Boys The Tribe arrives on Blu-ray™ Hi-Def and DVD. The direct-to-DVD sequel stars Tad Hilgenbrinck (American Pie: Band Camp) as Chris Emerson, Angus Sutherland (Passing Strangers) as Shane, Autumn Reeser (The O.C.) as Nicole Emerson, and Corey Feldman as Edgar Frog, the original vampire hunter with appearances by Jamison Newlander and Corey Haim from The Lost Boys.

    Directed by Joel Schumacher (Phantom of the Opera, Batman Forever), The Lost Boys stars Corey Haim (A&E’s The Two Coreys), Corey Feldman (The Surreal Life, A&E’s The Two Coreys), Jamie Gertz (TV’s Still Standing) and Kiefer Sutherland (TV’s 24). All bonus materials on the Standard Definition will be included on the Blu-ray™ Hi-Def version and will sell for $28.99 SRP. Orders are due June 24.

    About The Movie
    When newly-divorced Lucy moves her family to her father's house in Santa Clara, California -- "the murder capital of the world" -- her teenage son, Michael (Jason Patric), quickly falls in with the town's bad kids: a bike-riding, Jim Morrison-worshipping gang of blood-sucking vampires led by David (Kiefer Sutherland). Her younger son Sam (Corey Haim) and his buddies, the Frog brothers, are the only ones who recognize the signs of vampirism in Michael, and they plot to battle the legions of the night before they take over the entire town.
