On Nov. 16 Warner Home Video will release six 3D Blu-ray Disc titles at retail with no hardware tie-ins, including Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore, the industry’s first day-and-date 3D Blu-ray with DVD and standard Blu-ray.
Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore, which took in more than $47 million at the domestic box office, will be a three-SKU release, with 3D Blu-ray, standard Blu-ray and DVD. Per 3D Blu-ray standards, all of the 3D Blu-ray releases will include 2D versions of the films.
The other films to see a 3D Blu-ray release will be Clash of the Titans (2010), The Polar Express, IMAX Deep Sea 3D, IMAX Under the Sea 3D and IMAX Space Station 3D. All six 3D titles will have an SRP of $44.95 each.
The 3D Blu-rays of IMAX Deep Sea 3D and IMAX Under the Sea 3D had previously been exclusives to owners of 3D products from Sony Electronics and LG Electronics, respectively. The 3D Blu-ray of IMAX Space Station 3D was initially an LG 3D hardware tie-in for consumers in Europe, Asia, South America and Central America.
