    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE







    DUKES OF HAZZARD,

    WARNER HOME VIDEO’S SECOND HD DVD

    WITH IN-MOVIE EXPERIENCE DEBUTS JULY 11

    Enter the Dragon also debuts on HD DVD



    Burbank, California (June 22, 2006) – Debuting July 11, Dukes of Hazzard will be Warner Home Video’s (WHV) second HD DVD title with the new In-Movie Experience feature (IME). IME raises the bar of interactivity, allowing viewers to enjoy new ways of accessing interviews and other material -- while the movie is running -- to find out more about the filmmaking process. The IME for Dukes of Hazzard takes you on a trouble-making, car-crashing, barroom-brawling in-movie viewing experience. Also making its HD DVD debut the same day will be the classic film starring Bruce Lee, Enter the Dragon. Both titles will sell for $28.99 SRP.



    The box office hit, Dukes of Hazzard, which grossed more than $80 million at the domestic box office, tells the story of the Bo, Luke, and Daisy Duke, three cousins on a mission to save their family farm in Hazzard County. Starring Johnny Knoxville, Seann William Scott and Jessica Simpson as the famous Dukes, the cast also includes Burt Reynolds, Joe Don Baker, Lynda Carter and Willie Nelson as the loveable Uncle Jessie.



    Also being brought to HD-DVD is Enter the Dragon, starring Bruce Lee, one of the greatest martial arts / action adventure stars in the history of film. In this, his signature film and most popular, Lee plays an intelligence agency recruit who goes undercover as a Karate tournament contestant to infiltrate a drug trafficking ring.



    All bonus materials on the Standard Definition versions of both these titles will be included on the HD DVD versions



    Warner Home Video HD DVDs offer resolution six times higher than standard definition DVDs, extraordinarily vibrant contrast and color in addition to beautifully crisp sound. HD DVD also provides a new level of interactivity, giving instant access to extra features with the debut of a seamless menu-bar that allows viewers to enjoy features and settings without leaving or interrupting the film.



    With operations in 90 international territories, Warner Home Video, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, commands the largest distribution infrastructure in the global video marketplace. Warner Home Video's film library is the largest of any studio, offering top quality new and vintage titles from the repertoires of Warner Bros. Pictures, Turner Entertainment, Castle Rock Entertainment, HBO Home Video and New Line Home Entertainment.

    There's also a post at AVS that Batman Begins will come out the same day. I hope so as I'll take all three please [​IMG] Plus, Pitch Black unrated as well on that day.

    Garrett,

    Are you saying that you have the HD DVD of Batman Begins in your posession?

    If so that is huge news and we need at least a mini review ASAP.

    Count me in for both DOH & ETD. Gonna be nice to have some Bruce Lee on HD DVD. Too bad Fox owns the others.


    Actually that's just about accurate. [​IMG]
