New Line hops on UMD bandwagon

PSP News | But no Lord of the Rings just yet.
New Line Cinema has confirmed that it's first releases on Sony's proprietary UMD format will be released shortly, but there's been no mention of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. New Line's announcement means the UMD format has tempted another of the biggest studios in the world on board, with Buena Vista and Fox Home Entertainment already churning out the discs.

However, it appears New Line aren't quite yet ready to commit their most popular films to UMD, with the first batch consisting of Elf, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (not the superb original unfortunately, but the fairly decent remake), Blade, Secondhand Lions, Freddy Vs. Jason and the excellent The Butterfly Effect. Many of the above should also come with special features, and will be priced at around $19.98 in the US when they appear around October 4th.

None have been confirmed for either Australia or Europe right now, but we'll be keeping our ears close to the ground for you.
