Hopefully these hold true.

Paramount Home Entertainment has announced 'The Jack Ryan Collection,' 'Face/Off (Special Collector's Edition),' 'Disturbia' starring Shia LaBeouf, and 'Top Gun' are all coming to HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc in the coming months.
While Paramount has not released any disc information for these titles, we can tell you 'Disturbia' will be released on August 7, 'Face/Off (Special Collector's Edition)' will span two discs and be released September 11, 'The Jack Ryan Collection' will be released September 25, and 'Top Gun' will take off on October 2.

There was originally a date of August 28 for Face-Off, a 2 week push back.

If true, those are some nice catalog titles from Paramount. I'm especially lucky, as I never did get around to buying Top Gun or the Jack Ryan films on DVD.

"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932

Probably get Face/Off, but unless Paramount starts adding some uncompressed soundtracks I'll pass on all the others.
And you believe, at heart, everyone's a killer...

Hmm - if the price is right on the Jack Ryan set, I might bite. Will definitely get Face/Off. Disturbia was good fun, but it might just get Netflixxed.

Now, Paramount....how bout some lossless audio on these puppies?

There is a lot of buzz around that Top Gun will be their first lossless uncompressed title. Apparently some Paramount Insider at DVD Talk confirmed this, although I can't seem to find the thread where he said this. Reportedly TrueHD for HD-DVD and PCM for BD.

If anyone can find the link of this confirmation, please post it here.

Good titles. Face/Off and Top Gun are certain. Hunt for Red October is also likely Posted Image

Those are good catalog titles.

Not really a big Top Gun fan but I'll pick up the previously reported Face/Off and the Jack Ryan set. Though I won't be happy if I get stuck with The Sum of All Fears.

I removed the Jack Ryan films from my DVD changer nearly a year ago because I knew they would hit fairly soon, amazing news indeed

Top Gun...why do I feel the need for a new sub or some tactile transducers?

Will this madness never end?

Please don't announce Crimson Tide any time soon!

The Blu-ray will bring back fond college memories of my roommate and I blasting the first Top Gun DVD and my sub knocking closed other people's windows in the dorm (later it would turn out I actually had it set wrong, with only the ultra-low bass set really high -- Robbie the Robot kicked ass over those steel grates in Lost in Space too -- no wonder). Subsequently, I was forced by the RA to send my subwoofer home. I nearly cried and gave it a hug before I boxed it up.

Great news! I just hope that they will offer Hunt for Red October seperatly as I have no interest in the other Ryan films.

I will pick up Top Gun for sure and, if they come with seperate Jack Ryan movies, will add October as well. Crossing fingers for pcm on Top Gun.

I really hope the Top Gun transfer is better than what I watched on HDNet Movies last night. It was one of the worst looking hi-def movies I've watched in a long time(although at least they showed it in OAR). I have no doubt the audio will be amazing, but I'm really anxious to see if they clean up the PQ on this title.

Oh, and I can't wait for Face/Off. Posted Image

My question for Top Gun is this: will Paramount be smart enough to use the brand new 6.1 discrete mix they created for the last DVD and put it on HD as 6.1 PCM (Blu-ray) and 6.1 TrueHD (HD-DVD)? You know, like Fox did for X-Men 3 (6.1 DTS MA)?

Will Paramount do a "Disney" and release 24 bit master quality audio too, or will they pull a "WB" and just do 16 bit?

Pretty sure Top Gun is Super 35 (necessary for the flight photography), so even if the video is top notch expect a lot of negative revews from the "I hate grain" and "where's my 3D pop" crowd.

You'll have to really know your reviewer or see it with your own eyes. I would think the grain structure of the film would benefit from extra bandwidth vs. that used for broadcast HD though.
