Has anyone heard why WB discontinued Led Zeppelin: The Song Remains The Same on both HD-DVD and Blu-ray??? I was looking foward to picking up this title and I still might unless there is a serious issue with the disc. Lets say that since there has been no mention of problems with this title I was suprised to see that it was discontinued. Posted Image

Anyone know why it was discontinued and if it is going to be rereleased or not?

Just checked Amazon to see if they still have it available and they list (for both formats) a release date of 12/31/10 (their standard when they don't have a date) with this message:
Quote:
Production Delay: Due to production and shipment delays from the studio impacting all retailers, this title was not available to ship by the original street date. We are working with the studio to get this product in stock as quickly as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience.
First time I've ever seen that on Amazon. That may have something to do with it if it has been discontinued.

That message (and date) have been up at amazon since it's scheduled release date.

Seems like it might just be delayed.

"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932

I could never figure out whether or not this title was going to include lossless audio, so perhaps Warner Bros. could use this delay to the customers advantage by including it if it wasn't going to have it originally. Otherwise, I won't be buying this title whenever it is released.

There are some out there if you look. I have my HD DVD copy that I paid $20 for from an online retailer.

I pre-ordered it (on BD) direct from WB, and every now and then they send me an email saying that delivery is being delayed. No mention of it actually being discontinued though.

ed wood(the second one) was pulled because of a clip or something in the special features that someone didnt like.

"Lastly, I should note that there is one extra, "When Carol Met Larry," that only appears on the first batch of Ed Wood DVDs. It's a mini-doc about a transvestite and it is rumored that it was this extra that held up the DVD for all those years. True or not, I certainly hope that it wasn't for this disposable piece of nonsense that I was kept waiting. The DVD certainly doesn't miss its inclusion."

are you saying this is the same on the song remains the same release?

isnt the sd version readily available?

besides that, who says this was cancelled not just delayed?

i just ordered one on each format and they have shipped.

Hey Paul, it's WB where talking about here. Posted Image There more likely to use a low bitrate dolby digital track than they are Dolby True HD or uncompressed pcm. I would love to own it in HD but I may just pass on it even though I do want the title. There is no guarentee, I might just pick it up be cause I am week! Posted Image

DVD Empire listed it as discontinue by studio.

DVD Planet shows title as discontinued by studio

Amazon says this: Production Delay: Due to production and shipment delays from the studio impacting all retailers, this title was not available to ship by the original street date. We are working with the studio to get this product in stock as quickly as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience.

DVD planet shows out of stock.

I am not having much luck finding any other mention of this title being delayed or discontinued on WB's web site or any other, at least not yet. I have never had any reason to doubt DVD Empire in the past so I wanted to find out what was going on with this title.

[url=http://www.hometheaterforum.com/htf/../images/smilies/laugh.gif] I did a little searching, and I think I found the source Jeff is referring to. I ordered the Blu-ray Disc today, and it shipped this evening. I should be able to confirm the existence of lossless audio on the Blu-ray Disc shortly. I am hopeful that it will based on Dustin's post.

Looks like TrueHD.

This (the HD DVD) was something I was considering getting eventually, but figured I should get it now. Just ordered it from BN.com - they claim to have both the HD DVD and Blu-ray in stock/shipping in 24 hours. The SD is listed as "usually ships in 1-2 weeks." Got it for $21.xx using a 20% coupon for members (that was actually cheaper than using a 25% coupon because I would have had to pay for shipping).
