Fox Offers ‘Unstoppable’ Blu-ray Digital Copy15 Feb, 2011 By: Erik Gruenwedel
20th Century Fox Home Entertainment Feb. 15 said it included for the first time a Blu-ray Digital Copy with the action-thriller Unstoppable Blu-ray Disc, starring Denzel Washington and Chris Pine (Star Trek).
The electronic Blu-ray file is compatible with Android-based platforms, which means that for the first time an apparent 1080p resolution high-definition digital copy can be transferred to a smart phone or portable media device.
Washington and Pine play train personnel who must try to derail an unmanned, half-mile-long runaway freight train transporting deadly toxic material through rural Pennsylvania.
Unstoppable generated $81 million at the domestic box office ($167 million globally) since its Nov. 12 theatrical release.
The Blu-ray Disc’s special features include “Derailed: Anatomy of a Scene”; “Hanging Off the Train: Stunt Work”; “On the Rails,” with the director and cast; “The Fastest Track: Unleashing Unstoppable”; director commentary; and “Tracking the Story: Unstoppable Script Development.”
To access Blu-ray Digital Copy on Android, users must have the Unstoppable Blu-ray disc, a Wi-Fi connected Blu-ray player, Android 1.6 or higher, and the PocketBLU app, which can be downloaded free from the Android Market.
