Universal to Release SCARFACE, JURASSIC PARK Trilogy on Blu-ray This Year

In addition to many westerns and more Hitchcock, Universal will dig into the vault to pull out the Jurassic Park Trilogy and Brian DePalma's Scarface for the hi-def transfer.

Among the westerns to be released are James Stewart's Winchester 73, and Shenandoah along with Clint Eastwood's High Plains Drifter. More Alfred Hitchcock films will also find blu-ray release but Universal notes the flow of these may be slowed by the need to remaster to the same quality level as last years' Psycho 50th Anniversary blu-ray release.

This is all good news, but take it in with a healthy dose of skepticism as many releases to blu-ray have been delayed over the last several months.
