Fox shining Blu-Ray on ‘Ice’

'Meltdown' to be released Nov. 21.

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, the last major to announce its Blu-ray titles, has unveiled its format slate, bolstered by “Ice Age: The Meltdown,” to be released Nov. 21.

Fox will release the standard DVD on the same date.

“Meltdown,” at $195 million in domestic B.O., is the biggest new release to be announced for either high-def format this year. It is exclusive to Blu-ray since Fox does not support the rival HD DVD format.

Fox’s first Blu-ray titles will be announced today at IFA Berlin.

MGM Home Entertainment, which is distributed by Fox, also announced its first Blu-ray titles this week. “Rocky” and “Bulletproof Monk” get thrown in the ring on Dec. 5, and “The Usual Suspects” and “Windtalkers” on Nov. 28.

In addition to “Meltdown,” Fox’s initial Blu-ray titles include the “Kingdom of Heaven” director’s cut, which will be the industry’s first release on a dual-layer 50 gigabyte Blu-ray disc, with double the capacity of the 25 GB discs most other Blu-ray titles use. It hits the street Nov. 10 in Japan and Nov. 14 in the U.S.

Both Fox and MGM stressed that their initial slates were chosen to appeal to early adopters and likely PlayStation 3 purchasers.

All Fox and MGM Blu-ray titles are priced at $39.98.
