Amusingly, this came precisely one minute before it was announced during our Live Blog of the PlayStation Day keynote – great news, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s first BD-Live title outside of the States is the sci-fi classic Men In Black.
Men In Black will hit Blu-ray on June 16th, and will bring network connected features such as a BD-Live multi-player Interactive Trivia Game, as well as exclusive downloadable theatrical and home entertainment previews and a FAQ about BD-Live functionality.
Men in Black follows the exploits of agents Kay (Tommy Lee Jones) and Jay (Will Smith), members of a top-secret organization established to monitor alien activity on Earth. The two MiB find themselves in the middle of the deadly plot by an intergalactic terrorist (Vincent D’Onofrio) who has arrived on Earth to assassinate two ambassadors from opposing galaxies.
‘SPHE is delighted to bring BD-Live to International markets for the first time,‘ stated Matt Brown, EVP, International, SPHE, ‘This follows a successful launch in the US in March and is just the start of the exciting possibilities that will soon be available on high definition Blu-ray Disc.‘
BD-Live allows consumers to experience a variety of network connected options. In addition to exclusive content, BD-Live titles can enable an exciting slate of next generation possibilities, such as ring tones/wallpaper downloads, peer to peer interactions, live events and gaming activities.
