WB to entertain world in 3D now

October 4th, 2012 · No Comments · HDGURU3D News

3D Blu-rays may soon get a boost in sales as WB gets a facelift!

They announced their new logo today (which you can see below) and three huge box sets, in addition to a 3D re-release of The Wizard of Oz. There’s no word on if the Oz re-release will include theaters or just Blu-ray 3D.

Warner Home Video will have several box sets before their 90th anniversary, including a 100-film DVD collection and 50-film Blu-Ray collection on January 29, 2013. Both are limited edition sets that will have a retail of $597.92. They will feature lobby cards and a collectible poster. There could be Ultraviolet streaming for each film. Both will include two documentaries: Tales from the Warner Bros. Lot and The Warner Bros. Lot Tour.

Both sets are avaialble for pre-order on Amazong for $418.54.

Here’s a description of the documentaries from the press release: “Tales from the Warner Bros. Lot is a full-length documentary that features some of Warner Bros.’ top talent and executives giving an inside look at the history of the studio. In on-the-lot interviews, stars including Clint Eastwood, Steve Carell, Morgan Freeman, Martin Sheen, along with current and former studio toppers Barry Meyer, Alan Horn, Bob Daly, and Terry Semel, and others, recount personal reflections and anecdotes about their experiences at the studio. Tales from the Warner Bros. Lot was produced by documentarian Gary Khammar (It’s So Audrey! A Style Icon) and producer Bill Gerber (Gran Torino).

Now, for the first time, home viewers can take the hugely popular Warner Bros Studio VIP Tour in this new documentary produced exclusively for the 90th Anniversary collections. In The Warner Bros. Lot Tour, an official WB Lot Tour Guide gives guests a “virtual” tram ride (of what some 200,000 annual visitors experience) — an extraordinary opportunity to see first-hand where movie magic happens at the world’s busiest motion picture and television studio. Unlike a theme park, the Tour represents a rare and intimate “behind-the-scenes” look at real Hollywood, winding through back lot streets, sound stages, sets and craft shops.”
