Universal launches Blu-ray applications for iPhone, Facebook and Twitter

Universal Studios Home Entertainment has announced two new applications designed to add greater user interactivity and immersion to its upcoming slate of Blu-ray Disc releases.

The Pocket BLU app for iPhone and iPod Touch is available now as a free download from the Apple App Store, and uses the device’s Wi-Fi connection to communicate with a network enabled BD player.  Once connected, users can use their iPhones or iPods as a remote control, giving easy and direct access to different menus and BD-Live content. It also allows users to access a video timeline to jump to any point in a movie, and to download exclusive bonus content. A pop-up keyboard also makes it easier to chat and send messages when the option is available.

Social BLU meanwhile integrates Blu-ray Disc content with social networking applications such as Facebook and Twitter. Supported discs, starting with American Pie presents: The Book of Love, will allow viewers to login to their chosen network and enjoy a variety of features, including direct status updates via BD-Live. Users can also rate films, send messages and share content from the portal.

Upcoming Universal releases to use the new applications include Bruno, Funny People, 9, Public Enemies and Inglourious Basterds. More information will appear at www.universalhidef.com as the discs are released.

 

 

Fight Club marks arrival on Blu-ray Disc with viral websites

Fight Club BDDavid Fincher’s classic Fight Club celebrates its 10th anniversary this year with its long-awaited debut on Blu-ray Disc.

To mark the release, two special websites have been created to immerse fans in the world of the film. WelcomeToFC.com integrates with your Facebook profile and gives it a Fight Club style makeover, while FightClubExperience.com allows visitors to download a widget which collates all Fight Club information happening on the web (from Twitter, Flickr, YouTube etc) in one place. It also gives access to exclusive video clips and of course, the famous rules of Fight Club.

As for the BD itself, in addition to a pristine cut of the film there are all-new bonus materials including two interactive featurettes – “A Hit In The Ear: Ren Klyce and the Sound Design of Fight Club,” which lets viewers remix four key scenes themselves with the help of Oscar-nominated sound designer Ren Klyce, and “Insomniac Mode: I Am Jack’s Search Index,” a set of interactive tools that allow viewers to immediately access any of the bonus material on the disc.

Fight Club hits Blu-ray Disc across Europe in November. You can watch a trailer here:
