We’ve already shown you a minimalist take on the Scream 4 poster as well as give you details about the movie soundtrack. Now it’s time to talk about the original trilogy getting a proper release on Blu-ray. The titles have been available across the northern border in Canada for several years now, but have never had a proper U.S. release until now.
Last month we told you about Lionsgate partnership with Miramax to release its video library. A second deal was inked between Miramax and Mills Creek Entertainment to distribute titles as well. Comparing both deals, it looks as if Lionsgate gets the A-list properties while Mills Creek will distribute lower-rung titles at the extremely low MSRPs that they are known for.
With a brand new Scream hitting theaters in April, Lionsgate and Miramax are capitalizing by releasing the original trilogy on Blu-ray Disc for the first time in the U.S. on March 29th. All three will be presented in 1080p HD and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio.
Each disc will carry a MSRP of $19.99 each.
The Blu-ray Disc features audio commentary, a production featurette, behind the scenes footage, a Q&A with cast and crew plus the theatrical trailer.
Scream 2 Extras:
The Blu-ray Disc features include audio commentary, deleted scenes with optional audio commentary, outtakes, a featurette and the theatrical trailer.
Scream 3 Extras:
The Blu-ray Disc features include audio commentary, deleted scenes and an alternate ending, outtakes, behind the scenes footage and the theatrical trailer.
