Tokyo Drift & Slither HD DVD Details
Universal Studios Home Entertainment has announced that Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift will be released on HD DVD / DVD Combo Format disc priced at $39.98 SRP, this September 26. Unlike its 2 older brothers in the film franchise, preliminary details suggest that the HD DVD release for this title will not include a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 track. The main feature will be presented in 1080p Widescreen 2.35:1 with Dolby Digital-Plus 5.1 tracks (English, French & Spanish). English [SDH], French & Spanish subtitles are included for the main feature.
This HD DVD will feature some never-before-seen HD DVD exclusive interactivity, termed "U-Control", which allows viewers to simultaneously watch director commentary or view a GPS map of where exactly in Tokyo a critical car chase happens. The viewer can also edit their own clips using actual or previously deleted scenes. Besides this, viewers may be allowed to design their own tuner can and see it in a scene from the movie. It can be confirmed here that these interactive features will be available on the final HD DVD.
Once full details are confirmed, they will be available on this blog.
