    Personally, I can't see this one making it to retail before getting canceled, but it is formally announced for now.

    Ditto. When I saw and Sweeney Todd announced this morning, I had to scratch my head. Someone wasn't paying attention to any kind of news reports coming out of Tokyo all weekend.

    (However, both are still on my list to get. TWBB is an exceptional movie.)

    I wouldn't be surprised if these wind up getting released "purple" on those dates. Paramount/Dreamworks doesn't have the master issues with these newer titles that Uni had with some of its catalogue titles. It's also likely that the HDDs are already pressed.

    They wouldn't be pressed six weeks out. That usually occurs about 3 weeks out.

    They'll definitely be changed over to BD.

    I drink your milkshake, Blu-ray. I drink it up!

    (Ok, I have no idea what this line really means, as I haven't seen TWBB yet, but it sounded good!)

    And TWBB will be mine as well [​IMG]

    Yeah, at least one site (of unknown reliability, I should point out) has already said that both Para and Uni have been canceling titles, including the "ST: TOS Season 2" set which Bill Hunt mentioned this morning, as well as "Charlie Wilson's War" and "Cloverfield".

    Jesse, would you mind linking to that site? Even if unreliable, I'd like to read it. [​IMG]

    Blu-News
    or
    Blu-News - Home

    Same content and owner(s). BTW, they used to be pro-HD DVD, at least on forums. They're iffy (IMO) because of some "insider" data the owner mentioned to make HD DVD (at first, then Blu-ray much later) look better. Much of it turned out to be off-base.

    Actually to be correct to the movie:

    "I drink your milkshake HD-DVD - I drink it up!"
