The Departed on HD DVD - Some early details
Much earlier, we've posted that The Departed would be released on HD DVD in 2007. Warner Home Video Australia has also announced that it would be available at retail in Australia on March 7.
Some unofficial sources have informed us that the North American HD DVD release of The Departed will also feature Dolby TrueHD 5.1 audio track on top of the usual Dolby Digital-Plus tracks.

The availability of HD DVD exclusive extras is TBC. When an offical announcement is available about the HD DVD release, we will provide the details here.
