In what are sure to be three of the biggest-selling next-gen titles yet, Disney has set Spring street dates for the Blu-ray releases of the blockbuster 'Pirates of the Caribbean' films, and Pixar's first high-def title, 'Cars.'


Just in time for the theatrical release of the third 'Pirates' epic, Disney has set a May 22 voyage for 'Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl' and 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest.' These guaranteed huge sellers will be followed on June 5 by 'Cars,' the Pixar hit and current favorite for this year's Best Animated Film Oscar.

Agreed. Even Universals super secret release strategy will have a hard time coming up with better titles for release than those already announced by Blu-Ray only backed studios. Once we see E.T. being announced you know HD-DVD will be getting desperate at that point.

True, but people will buy it just to see all the special effects in high-def. Lots of people hated King Kong and Superman Returns, but it's a top seller simply because of the special effects and PQ.
