Warner Brothers Senior Vice-President of Catalog Marketing George Feltenstein has provided more details on the 12 outtakes included as special features on the 'Elvis: That's The Way It Is : Two Disc Special Edition
due out on August 12. As suspected, the content mirrors that of the 2007 2-DVD set, except with a new twist. On DVD, the outtakes were presented in abysmal quality, but on Blu-ray, they will be pristine.
'The Blu-ray has high-definition, incredible new presentation
, [and an] all-new master, but we also have, with really impressive quality
, additional songs that were not included in the Special Edition. They were on a prior DVD but ... we were unable to locate the actual master tapes that had the outtakes, and, finally, now, that tape was located
, and that is now on the Blu-ray.
It has been a while since the release of the last Elvis movie on Blu-ray
, but August brings 3 new releases
with at least 5 more titles to be released on Blu-ray between August 2014 and August 2015. 'Follow That Dream
' will be released on Blu-ray as an exclusive, limited edition of 3000 copies. This release includes an 8 page booklet that speaks to the film's place in 'cinema literacy' and Joe Esposito will be doing a Feature Commentary with Film Historian, Nick Redman, an exclusive on the disc.
