Just look at the Warner releases of this year:
- The Getaway (123'): HD 30, BD 50
- Bullitt (114'): HD 30, BD 50
- The Departed (151'): HD 30/9, BD 50
- The Wicker Man (106'): HD 30/9, BD 25
- Lady in the Water (109'): HD 30/9, BD 25
- Scooby Doo (86'): HD 30/9, BD 25
So anything by Warner with a running time of two hours or more is using dual layer for both HD DVD and BD.
| There are many one-layer HD DVDs and BDs out already, I don't consider them "cripples" either. |
But the technology allows them to use dual-layer if they need to. With Total HD, that option disappears.
| And only between June and August? You would want them to start with TotalHD in August instead? |
Because if they did it in August, they wouldn't be able to toot their horns at CEDIA in September.
