    Warner seems to have a few titles in Red but not Blu. Just wondering about
    Perfect Storm
    Batman Begins and
    Matrix trilogy

    have you looked in the topics for those titles?

    I'm sure the reason has been discussed there.

    Warner have been holding back on some of these titles until the Blu-ray Profile 1.1 issues were sorted out. Blu-ray players couldn't handle the PIP commentaries included on the HD-DVD versions until this was sorted.

    We should hopefully be seeing these sometime in 2008, now that Profile 1.1 has been launched. The PS3 is now a fully compliant Profile 1.1 player via an internet update & the first Profile 1.1 titles with interactive features are coming in January (Sunshine, 3:10 to Yuma, Resident Evil:Extinction, War).

    It's all explained much better here;

    For those titles that do not have the In-Movie Experience, such as Casablanca, The Adventures of Robin Hood, or The Perfect Storm, Warner is simply waiting for a viable release window that will accommodate 1) sufficient replication and 2) sufficient promotion.
