One of the funniest films of the 90's - "Friday" is heading to Blu-ray on September 8th, along with "Menace II Society" and "Set It Off" (both of which, admittedly, I don't care about). Here's the scoop for blu-ray.com :

"Warner Home Video has announced that they will bring three "urban titles" to Blu-ray on September 8th, including 'Friday: Deluxe Edition', 'Set It Off: Deluxe Edition', and 'Menace II Society: Deluxe Edition'. All three titles will be presented in 1080p AVC with 'Friday' receiving a newly remixed 7.1 Dolby TrueHD soundtrack, and the other two receiving 5.1 Dolby TrueHD soundtracks.

Extras features have not been announced in full, though we do know that 'Friday' will include a new 30-minute vignette entitled “Friday Straight Up” plus music videos from Ice Cube and Dr. Dre. 'Set It Off' will include a new 30-minute featurette “Setting it Straight: Making of Set It Off” and Ray J's “Let It Go” music video while 'Menace II Society' will include and new commentary by directors Allen and Albert Hughes, producer Darin Scott, screenwriter Tyger Williams, actor Tate and rapper Ryan Williams.

New research has shown that black consumers represent 12% of the Blu-ray market compared to only 6% of the DVD market, meaning they are taking an increasing interest in the high definition format. Warner hopes that by offering these titles, they can capitalize on that increasing market share."

Friday and Menace II Society will be mine. Although I wish they would have come out with a Friday 3 pack.

I have to saw i agree with you 100%. To be honest I didn't care much for Next Friday, but Friday After Next was pretty damned good.

Hhhheeeyyyyy Ms. Parker.

Does anyone else see the 7.1 remix as a bit ridiculous for 'Friday'? I mean, I love the movie and 7.1 is all good but ....really?

New Line probably had it done before they kicked the bucket.

Friday is hands down one of the funniest films ever made.

If they released a Blu exclusive edition of Scarface with the oft-rumored hip hop soundtrack as an alternate audio track, it would literally sell a million Blu Ray machines easily.

I've had my fingers crossed for Friday for a long time now. I was hoping it would be released as a trilogy though as I love all three. But I can't wait to watch the first one again. My wife hasn't seen it which is even better!!

I'll be buying both Friday and Menace II Society when they release on blu-ray .

Friday was great but the other 2 were horrible because Ice Cube couldn't get Chris Tucker to comeback for them due to money issues.

All we need now is Boyz N Da Hood to come out on blu-ray also .
