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.
