With CES 2007 just around the corner, Sony is already previewing some of its most anticipated Blu-ray titles of the coming year in a new preview spot that made its debut with the upcoming release 'Gridiron Gang.'
For us tech geeks, those little pre-movie "Experience High-Definition!" teaser spots at the beginning of most studio's Blu-ray and HD DVD discs are always something to look forward to. So upon popping in 'Gridiron Gang' for review, we were pleasantly surprised to find that Sony has created a new, splashy spot for 2007.
Though not all that different from past Sony previews, among the tantalizing tidbits shown were clips for such as-yet-unscheduled hits as 'Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle,' 'Bad Boys II,' 'Once Upon a Time in Mexico,' 'Big Fish,' 'Lawrence of Arabia,' 'The Patriot' and (finally!) 'Spider-Man.' The ad ends with a full listing of the clips under the heading "Coming Soon to Blu-ray."
We also have to give Sony kudos for what may be the best pre-movie HD teaser we've seen yet -- every clip looked fantastic, and only made our mouth water even more for the likes of Spidey and what we assume will be the rest of the studio's 2007 Blu-ray lineup.
Of course, we'll keep you posted on all of Sony's latest announcements, and we certainly expect big things from the studio at CES this year. In the meantime, we've added all the titles in the Sony preview to the "Release Dates Pending" section of our complete Blu-ray Release Schedule.
