First HD-DVD: I want action, more action!

This is probably the shouts heard in the corridors of the marketing department at Universal Video when preparing the launch of HD-DVD. In the coming month, the first titles for high-definition DVD will be:

  • Serenity: action and science fiction
  • Doom: horror, action and science fiction
  • Apollo 13: suspense and action
  • Cinderella Man: boxing and love
  • Jarhead: US Marines in Kuwait
  • Assault on Precinct 13: action
  • The Chronicles of Riddick: action and science fiction
  • Van Helsing: vampires and action
  • U-571: underwater suspense
  • The Bourne Supremacy: action and science fiction

Of course, you’ll have to have one of the rare HD-DVD players, the right TV set, etc. But Universal clearly targeted its public for this debut.
