DVD, Blu-ray, and Blu-ray 3D releases in the works for Lantern; PS3 access code unlocks Sinestro Corps Batman Skin for upcoming video game.
August 23, 2011
It's become second nature to expect not only one, but a plethora of superhero big screen flicks every year during the hottest months of the year. The latest in the long line of comic book movies to go from theater to your home theater is the DC Comics darling, Green Lantern
. Warner Home Video and DC will be teaming up to deliver Green Lantern
to DVD, Blu-ray, and Blu-ray 3D come October 14, 2011
The film itself revolves around a test subject, of sorts: Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds), a cocky human who has been elected into the Green Lantern Corps
, an intergalactic police force that keeps everything – and everyone – in check. Their dislike of humans takes a backseat to the more pressing matter of a dangerous new enemy coming to the forefront, Parallax. Jordan winds up – through his trials and tribulations – representing humanity at its finest.
The various combinations of releases are quite intricate. The Blu-ray 3D release will be your standard combo package, containing the 3D edition, the regular Blu-ray edition and a DVD copy of the superhero endeavor. The Blu-ray Combo Pack will hold the HD version and the DVD version, while the DVD release will contain only that particular rendition of the picture.
The UltraViolet Digital Copy, included on all DVD and Blu-ray discs of GL
, will allow consumers to instantly stream the movie from a digital cloud to computers, tablets and smartphones.
Plus, the Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack and the Blu-ray Combo Pack will offer PS3 users an access code to unlock the Sinestro Corps Batman Skin for Batman: Arkham City
. "The skin will give users the ability to fight crime with the help of the yellow power of fear, giving Batman a unique yellow costume in the story campaign and in the challenge maps," says a Warner Bros. press release.
The DVD will be available for the MSRP (Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price) of $28.98, while the Blu-ray will run at the MSRP of $35.99. If you are going for the gusto, you will be set back $40.99 for the Blu-ray 3D edition of the release.
