    What happened to the "The Digital Bits said "By the way, we've learned from industry sources that Fox will likely announce the release of Baz Luhrman's Moulin Rouge! on Blu-ray in the weeks ahead..."

    Did Bill Hunt say "the weeks ahead?"

    I don't have the exact quote in front of me.

    He's merely reporting that they are working on the title.

    If it were going to be a Christmas release we are past
    the announcement date. If they are looking for a
    February window then perhaps something will be
    announced shortly.

    You can't always time these things.

    Yeah. He said "By the way, we've learned from industry sources that Fox will likely announce the release of Baz Luhrman's Moulin Rouge! on Blu-ray in the weeks ahead..." Like you said though, it's not an exact science and I originally posted that quote on September 20 so it's not like it's really been that long since Bill Hunt said it.

    Maybe they're going for a tie-in with Valentine's Day?

    Sounds plausible, since that would also be about the time a home video release of The Men Who Stare at Goats would be.

    Typical Bill Hunt, I should have know better. When I read "weeks ahead", that means with in three or four weeks, at most.

    The studio know's exactly when they plan to release titles, it's all about timing.

    Not always, Ron.

    All we know the title is being prepp'd.

    Perhaps there is no release window selected yet.

    Furthermore, when it comes to dates set in stone
    you of all people, a veteran of this forum, should
    know those dates always change.

    Heck, there is Warner stuff that was supposed
    to be out 3 years ago despite the fact it has been
    in the preparation stages since then.

    Valentines Day sounds reasonable at this point.

    Looks like Romeo + Juliet is also getting prepped, according to blu-ray.com: http://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=3665

    I did as well and just got the notice it was available for preorder:

    http://www.amazon.com/Moulin-Rouge-Blu-ray-Nicole-Kidman/dp/B001G8XON0/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1279208145&sr=8-7


    What I haven't seen is an official release date? Is this wishful thinking on Amazon's part or has a date been set?

    Date has not been set though it should be

    forthcoming very shortly.


    Would not be surprised if we see an official

    announcement as early as this week or shortly

    thereafter.


    Gotta say, most all the studios thus far have

    not really announced any "meaty" BD catalog

    releases for the holiday season. Fox has really

    pulled out the stops to ensure that there are some

    great fan favorites coming our way.

    Jesse,


    I'm not denying that the list of titles you provided

    aren't good ones. You compiling and offering up

    that look presents a very compelling list of titles

    to choose from.


    I am sure you are aware, however, that there has

    been some loudly voiced concern about some of

    the studios sitting on a lot of catalog product and

    dragging their feet in getting releases out on Blu-ray.


    I'm simply saying that, in my opinion, Fox has

    really pulled out some prime offerings that are going

    to easily compete what is being offered by other

    studios. Of course, everyone has different tastes

    in film so perhaps not everyone will be as enthusiastic

    as I am at this point.
