I'm more excited by "Hulk" and "An American Werewolf in London," but I'll gladly take "Kong" along with those two. Posted Image

Well, we know they'll all be coming sooner or later.

Hopefully, this info will turn out to be somewhat accurate (though I could do without the combo crap).

King Kong on HD DVD for the Holidays would be nice. I'd like to see the Mummy in HD as well (and there are several other from that list I'd be interested in).

If this turns out to be true it will be very welcome. There are some good titles there that I would definantly purchase. This is a good start but we need to see more top notch titles being released.

Waterworld?!?!?

Not there's a great title to give HD-DVD a shot inthe arm! Not. Really, some of the decisions being made on these initial high-def releases *really* are puzzling.

I'm looking forward to Kong and AAWIL though!

I think it's the 1933 one since every other title is from Universal. Posted Image

wow- my sentiments too- exactly.
I'm thrilled that by the end of November, all of the Uni titles that I wanted (from the various coming soon lists over the past few months) will have been released. I would have loved to have had American Werewolf in time for Halloween, but I'l happily take it as soon as its available.

Warner distributed the recent release of the original Kong and Universal did Jackson's remake. Wouldn't it be great if we got *both*?

The headline for this article says these are all Universal releases. I think it's safe to say that it is Jackson's "Kong" that is coming. (The same one that looks SO eye-boggling on the HD DVD demo disk.)

You're right Bob. I was just daydreaming.

hrm, i wished it was the '33 version. i just bought the 2disc SD-DVD version and it looks fantastic. the bonus disc was TWICE as long as the film itself... argh! will the HD version just let us see the hair&dirt&grime in clearer detail or will we see more detail on the claymation?

re: jackson's version on HD-DVD, will it be the theatrical release or extended?

I don't know for sure but I'd bet that it'll be the theatrical cut.

Hopefully, Waterworld will not be from a 1080i transfer -- this is a title that could look quite stunning.

Yeah! Waterworld! Posted Image Wait...I'm happy with my DVD dump version.

I'd be excited if Grinch was the cartoon. Carey's version deserves to have it's balls removed. (Christmas balls, that is)

I'd love to have a comparison of the American Werewolf versions. I was a little disappointed it didn't look better.
