Lionsgate has officially announced their second wave of Blu-ray Disc titles for 8/22 (SRP $29.99 each). The titles will include Stir of Echoes, Stargate, Total Recall and The Devil's Rejects. Stir of Echoes will include audio commentary with director David Koepp, the Sight of Spirits: Channeling the Paranormal featurette and deleted scenes. Stargate (the 128-minute unrated version) will include audio commentary with writer/director Roland Emmerich and writer/producer Dean Devlin. Total Recall will include the Visions of Mars featurette. Finally, The Devil's Rejects (the 109-minute unrated version) will include audio commentary with director Rob Zombie, audio commentary with actors Sid Haig, Bill Moseley and Sheri Moon Zombie, and deleted scenes. All will feature 1080p video with audio in "DTS HD High Resolution ES" and "5.1 Dolby Digital Surround EX."

Total Recall in high definition would be sweeeeet. But overall another dismal line up.

"DTS HD High Resolution ES"? Is that DTS-HD or a prettier way of saying DTS-ES? If it's true DTS-HD than I think it's safe to assume that these movies will be on 50GB Dual-Layer Blu-Ray discs to support the extra space needed for DTS-HD?

Not necessarily. That would be true only if DTS-HD takes up more space than uncompressed LPCM. I’m not sure it does.

The EC of Stargate has video inserted with film. There are artifacts on the DVD, that you don't see in the theatrical version. The video also lacks the detail of film. Sure, hope they also included the film only sourced cut of this movie. Otherwise I'll just hang on to the SE SD DVD.

This title should be a real joy ride, if done correctly!

Anyone up for buying Total Recall, again??? ;-)
Movies are: "The Greatest Artform".
HD should be for EVERYONE!
