Cinderella Man Laces Up for Blu-ray
March 19, 2009

The Ron Howard boxing drama Cinderella Man staring Russell Crowe has been cleared for a Blu-ray Disc release on March 26.

Cinderella Man was previously available exclusively on HD DVD during the high-def format wars. This upcoming Blu-ray Disc release marks its first appearance on the winning format.

Tech specs include a 2.35:1 1080p transfer, likely identical to the HD DVD transfer, and a new 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio mix.

Bonus features are virtually identical to the HD DVD version with the exception of BD-Live functionality.

I'm guessing they mean May 26 and not March 26.

Not a very exciting title announcement because a very good region-free import version exists and has been out for years.

Sometimes we hear of people who are “very” honest, “mostly” honest, or even “a little” honest.
Should we even use modifiers with the word honest? I don’t believe so. There are no degrees of honesty. Either we are honest or we aren't.

we have that uk version as well, and it has really nice PQ and AQ... will be debating on rather to pick this u.s. version up or not. the new 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio mix might persuade us hehee.

He really enjoyed it. It's pretty easy going into a film like this with many justifiable, preconceived notions, but the film's so well made that you forget your initial cynicism. I enjoyed it way more than I thought I would and will be picking up the blu sometime down-the-road (May's already puttin' a hurtin' on my wallet).

I really enjoyed this movie. Never got around to importing it because of the chance the new release would be better, now I'll just wait and see if that's the case or save a few bucks buying it locally if they're the same.
