Sony Pictures said Thursday it will release 3D movies on Blu-ray Disc worldwide for the first time, beginning in the summer with the animated release ‘Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs.’
The launch is aimed to coincide with the summer arrival of Sony Electronics’ 3D compatible Bravia LCD televisions and 3D compatible Blu-ray disc players.
“3D entertainment on Blu-ray is poised to revolutionize the home viewing experience in much the same way that high-definition televisions and Blu-ray Disc have over the past several years,” said David Bishop, global president of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, Sony’s homevideo arm. Source
Walt Disney Studios said it would release it’s first 3D title, the CG-animated ‘A Christmas Carol’ starring Jim Carrey, on Blu-ray Disc in the fourth quarter.
