Sacré bleu! Mr. Bean goes HD!


Source: DVD Times

News that Mr. Bean’s Holiday was to get an HD DVD release in Australia on August 15th has essentially been common knowledge for some time now, and it should come as no surprise that a UK release date was announced today. Arriving five days later than its counterpart down under, on August 20th, this release, which will presumably be identical to the Australian version, will feature the usual razzmatazz (1080p VC-1 transfer, Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 audio in a variety of languages, and the same extras as the standard definition release). I missed seeing this at the cinema, and, while I have my suspicions as to the film’s quality (based in part on the largely negative reviews), I’ll no doubt be picking up a copy of this. Now if only Universal would release the original Bean in HD as well.
