Hell yes.


Warner Home Video has announced Grand Prix for Blu-ray release on May 24. This 1966 racing-themed action movie, starring James Garner and Eva-Marie Saint, was directed by John Frankenheimer and spectacularly shot on 65mm. It had been released in 2006 on the defunct HD DVD format.

Special features include:

* Featurettes:
o Pushing the Limit: The Making of Grand Prix
o Flat Out: Formula One in the Sixties
o The Style and Sound of Speed
o Brands Hatch: Chasing the Checkered Flag
o Grand Prix: Challenge of the Champions
* Theatrical trailer

I bought the HD-DVD version when it came out, and the impressive thing was even most of the extras were re-mastered. The "Making Of" feature looked like it had been filmed yesterday. If Warner keeps the same quality in the Blu-Ray version (and I have no reason to think they wont), BUY IT!
