Universal 'Gangster' titles on US BD in October - Artwork added

Universal Studios Home Video have announced the US Blu-ray Disc release of three gangster titles on 14th October 2008. Ridley Scott’s American Gangster, Martin Scorsese’s Casino and David Cronenberg’s Eastern Promises will be priced at $29.98 SRP each or will be available as part of a three-pack Gangsters set priced at $89.98 SRP.

Universal have so far not used region coding on their Blu-ray Disc titles and we expect this trend to continue, though officially no region coding information has been supplied. Features are detailed below…
