Daddy can't help you now! Elm Street 2 & 3 Double Feature Blu-ray this September!

Via "This fall, Warner Home Entertainment will release three franchise-themed double features on Blu-ray. Available on the September 27th street date will be budget-priced collections of A Nightmare on Elm Street 2 & 3: Freddy's Revenge / Dream Warriors, The Matrix Reloaded/Revolutions, and Ocean's Twelve/Thirteen.

Warner has not issued any further details other than the existence of the three double-feature Blu-ray sets; no word yet on whether each film will have its own disc or occupy one side of a flipper Blu-ray, or whether or not the sets will retain the same special features from the previous single-film Blu-ray editions."

Given how effortlessly spectacular New Line's Blu-ray of Craven original Elm Street looks, my expectations are slightly elevated for this release. Like that BD, if New Line simply leaves these sequels alone, we'll be in for a visual treat. I don't see any reason why they'd take any additional "care" to potentially muck up the picture quality considering this is a budget release.

I'm also figuring these will be on a single-sided 50GB Blu-ray @ 1080p, have the studio's usual lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1 audio (perhaps mono as well), and who knows about the extras. New Line's single DVDs only feature trailers so it might be prudent to hold onto to those Nightmare Collection box sets...

Before anyone points this out, New Line rolled into Warner awhile ago, but this Blu-ray will still be under the New Line banner. ;)

You beat me to posting this! I've got high hopes for the a/v presentation of this release too. Hopefully the parts 4/5 and 6/7 will follow. you dare tread upon the staircase?
