It looks like DreamWorks may be supporting both formats. Good news all the way around.

A pair of rumors today would seem to indicate that high-def holdout DreamWorks may finally be on the verge of announcing Blu-ray and HD DVD support with a day-and-date release of 'Dreamgirls.' DreamWorks

Sure would be nice if they would confirm--and announce a slate of catalog titles--soon.

Bill Hunt said this the other day in his column regarding his readers to flood Universal to end the war now in favor of Blu-ray...Here's his quote:

Quote:
You would suddenly have every major studio in town releasing Blu-ray titles (except for DreamWorks, and our sources tell us that the studio is simply waiting for one of these formats to start selling serious numbers before getting involved).

Since we're getting Dreamgirls on BOTH formats, I guess Bill wasn't getting true information from his "sources".

I like Bill's site, but another example of misleading editorials...

Dreamgirls coming in HD DVD AND Blu-ray clearly show the company's not waiting around for a winner just yet. Posted Image

You're right, it is categorized as a rumor, but it sounds reasonably solid. Follow the link below for more info.

Yep. That is why the ? is in the post title. The link in my original post states in the link this is a rumor, but a pretty well founded one.

Dreamgirls coming to HD DVD is not a rumor. They have Dreamgirls and Flags of our Fathers displayed on the main page of www.thelookandsoundofperfect.com with "Coming soon to HD DVD" written underneath.

To be fair, the Spielberg titles were just some titles on a VERY long PDF list of coming titles. They weren't on the front page in a fancy flash graphic like DreamGirls and Flag of our Fathers are. Looks pretty official to me.

Enough is enough, Disney. No more evasions or excuses. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray along with the uncut version of Bedknobs and Broomsticks on Blu-ray. I am going to boycott The Walt Disney Company until then.

The Spielberg titles did not come from thelookandsound site, but rather from the HD-DVD Promotion Group.

Can't say I'm all that interested in Dreamgirls but the prospect of Paramount releasing other Dreamworks titles on Blu-Ray has me drooling: Saving Private Ryan, Gladiator, A.I., Minority Report, War of the Worlds, Seabiscut, Road to Perdition, etc.

Hope the rumor pans out.

Seabiscuit is a Universal title and I believe it's already out on HD-DVD. A.I. is a Warner title. Both of those were co-productions that left the video rights with the other studio.

Seabiscuit is out on HD-DVD now, since Universal had the rights to that one.
