Arthur & Mortal Kombat Blu-rays
A strange combo for a news story you might think, but these US Blu-rays from Warner Home Video are both tie-in releases…
Arriving on 5th April 2011 is a Blu-ray Double Feature coupling Arthur and its sequel Arthur 2: On the Rocks. These eighties rom-coms starring Dudley Moore and Liza Minnelli are released on Blu-ray timed to the theatrical release of the remake starring Russell Brand, Helen Mirren and Jennifer Garner.
SRP is $19.98 and there are no extras. The films are presented in 1080P 1.85:1 Widescreen with English (DTS-HD MA), French and Spanish (Dolby Digital) audio and subtitle options. Audio channels are 1.0 for Arthur and 2.0 for the sequel.
Later in the month on 19th April 2011 Warner are launching a new Mortal Kombat video game on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. On the same day they will release the movies based on the original games - Mortal Kombat and Mortal Kombat: Annihilation - on Blu-ray Disc.
SRP is $19.98 each. Extras on both are the original trailer, a digital copy of the film and a HD trailer for the new game. The first film also includes an animated piece titled ‘Mortal Kombat: The Journey Begins’.
