‘Smallville’ DVD gets HD bow

First TV series to go high-def

Fugetaboutit, “Sopranos” — “Smallville” is going to be the first small-screen series to get a splashy high-def debut.

Warner Home Video will bow the fifth season of “Smallville” on HD DVD Nov. 28 as part of the studio’s massive “Superman” disc onslaught. The five-disc high-def set will contain unaired scenes, commentaries and HD-exclusive features such as the “Behind the Story” docu. It’s priced at $79.98 — $20 more than the standard DVD set.

Warner is also releasing HD versions of “Superman Returns,” “Superman: The Movie” and “Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut” for a few dollars more than the standard DVD versions. Donner cut has been highly anticipated by the comicbook crowd ever since the helmer was forced off the film almost 30 years ago; Richard Lester completed the 1980 bigscreen version.

Warner also is releasing a 14-disc “Ultimate Collector’s Edition” on standard DVD for $100 on Nov. 28.

Originally, the sixth season of “The Sopranos” was slated for a Nov. 7 bow on HD DVD, but that release was put on ice last month, leaving the honor open to the small-screen Man of Steel.
