Warner Brothers has revealed a sneak peak at one of the seven ‘Maximum Movie Mode’ scenes included on the eagerly awaited ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1’ Blu-ray Disc, released throughout Europe in April.

Extremely striking and beautifully shot, Danny Boyle’s Oscar-nominated ‘127 Hours’ is one hell of a story and soon European audiences will be able to experience the epic tale on Blu-ray Disc when it hits the shelves on 6th June.

Based on the incredible experience of rock climber Aron Ralston (played by James Franco), the film accounts his fateful 2003 adventure into the remote canyons of Utah.

The package will come with a BD and DVD copy of the movie, and several special features exclusive only to the BD which include behind-the-scenes commentaries from Boyle and screenwriter Simon Beaufoy alongside an array of deleted scenes – one of can be viewed here.

So if you’re a keen traveller, an adrenaline junkie or just a film lover keen on escaping to the breathtaking landscapes of the movie, ‘127 Hours’ could make the perfect addition to your Blu-ray library.

The highly-anticipated Oscar nominations for 2010 have finally been announced. Four of the ten nominations for Best Picture are already (or imminently) available to watch on Blu-ray, equipped with plenty of special features for delving into the reasons these films have received critical acclaim.

Both The Hurt Locker and Up (released in Europe this month) have special behind the scenes footage presented in high definition. In Up for example, one of the many short documentaries shows how the Pixar team developed their 78-year old action hero and the efforts they went through to accurately convey his moves. It also contains BD-live feature The Global Guardian Badge Game, which gives kids and families a chance to brush up on their geography skills.

On the Inglourious Basterds Blu-ray, a roundtable discussion with director Quentin Tarantino, Brad Pitt, and film critic Elvis Mitchell is worth a watch, for additional understanding of the films’ premise.  Finally, the District 9 Blu-ray provides the option to watch the film with BD-Live features MovieIQ and Cinechat, as well as including several behind the scenes documentaries (all in HD).

All in all, the special features on these Oscar nominated Blu-ray Discs will ensure you are fully equipped with all the information to choose which you think is most deserving of the top prize. The question is, will your favourite win?
