    BR and HD DVD will have three new releases from Paramount in a Promo flyer. No release date given.

    I probably will pick up Zodiac and Norbit. Saturday Night Fever will probably be forced on me by my family.

    I'll rent Zodiac and pass on the rest. This time 'round, I'm trying to be uber-selective about what I purchase.

    Once I get one or more of these formats I will buy Saturday Night Fever. Norbit is so bad it may have cost Eddie Murphy an Oscar.

    Zodiac is a definate buy for me - my early #1 film of 2007. A must see, IMO.

    Zodiac is an easy purchase choice. Tense, methodical, and visually stunning...in an understated way. I'll buy all of Fincher's movies just to look at them [​IMG] Fortunately, most of them are excellent movies as well.

    Very, very cool news re: Saturday Night Fever but I GUARANTEE the "What's with all the grain?!?!" and "Where's my 3-d POP!?!?!" crowd will be bitching and moaning....

    Just Zodiac for me, which will be a blind-buy.

    I'll blind buy Zodiac based on all the good WOM.
    Even though I haven't watched the SE of The Untouchables I bought over a year ago, I'll upgrade that because the few scenes I have watched from it reveal it to be fairly laden with artifacting...and the HD res boost will be much appreciated with this 2.35 AR film.

    Saturday Night Fever has become a movie I think highly of now, and I more than likely will upgrade it, but I wish we were getting Grease first.

    I imagine they're holding Grease for next year, its 30th anniversary. And I'll gladly wait for them to include the original sound mix and original Paramount logo.

    Zodiac for sure. I knew I'd buy the HD DVD as soon as I walked out of the theater.

    I still wish that Paramount would release both cuts of Saturday Night Fever, either via seamless branching or on separate discs. I'm kind of a completist that way.

    I am actually worried that the grain won't be there. I've seen this film numerous times theatrically and if that grain is missing I'll be furious. And please give us something better than 640 Dolby Digital on this one!! There's too much music not to give us lossless, but then again......Dreamgirls [​IMG].
