I really enjoyed this film and sold off my HD-DVD copy so I'd love to have this on Blu. Any word about Paramount reissuing this on Blu, hopefully with a lossless track as well?

I also loved this movie. Hopefully someone out there knows something. It would be great to have it on Blu-Ray!

For the record, here are the HD-DVD exclusive Paramount/DreamWorks releases from August 2007-March 2008 that have yet to see a BD release: Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy - Unrated, Uncut & Uncalled For! Arctic Tale Beowulf - Director's Cut (BD scheduled for 7/29) The Heartbreak Kid (2007) Hot Rod Into the Wild A Mighty Heart Old School - Unrated Shrek the Third (BD scheduled for 9/16) Star Trek: The Original Series - Season 1 Stardust Things We Lost in the Fire Top Gun (BD scheduled for 7/29) Transformers (BD scheduled for 9/2) Zodiac - Director's Cut

"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

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street was never released on HD DVD.
Universal Blu-ray Discs I will not be buying while they're offered only as Blu-ray + DVD 'flipper' discs:

The Jackal
, Out of Africa, and Traffic.

Sweeney Todd was not released on HD-DVD. It was slated for (appropriately enough) April 1st. Never mind; Paul posted the same info. - Walter.
Fidelity to the source should always be the goal for Blu-ray releases.

Given the fact that they have already set release dates for a few re-issued titles such as Shrek The Third and Beowulf, I am sure they are planning to release the rest at some point. And looks like all the re-issues so far are getting Dolby TrueHD.

That's a huge step above DD+, so that's just fine.

Some folks with access to retailer date info (and who have very good track records) have stated the film is coming sometime in November. Grain of salt, but based on how accurate the sources have been, just a tiny grain.

Makes sense. That's good timing for this movie. Now if Universal would only release Charlie Wilson's War.....

Any word on the November rumor? I just started the book and would love to see this again, on Blu.

My guess: They cross promote it with Benjamin Button since both are "fantasy".

It's mentioned as 'Coming Soon' on the rebate slips that came with The Godfather and Zodiac.

One of several examples of titles I won't be getting rid of on HD DVD (Mutiny on the Bounty and Grand Prix are a couple of others I anticipate will take a lot longer than Stardust to go "blu"--probably Forbidden Planet as well). While I'm acquiring the BDs I want and my collection is growing, I have no intention of "getting rid of" my HD DVDs (over 120 titles) unless/until both my players give up the ghost. Since I still have a functioning CD player from 1985 among my audio gear, I don't anticipate both players dying anytime soon.

I only invested in a few HD-DVDs, I only bought those that had lossless audio tracks so selling it all off was no big deal. This film is my last want from the HD-DVD era.

Exactly how I think about it, if you change 120 to 220 and "both my" to "my three" (I added an XBox360 HD DVD player to my collection to play it even more safely).

If I have the HD DVD version, I'm not buying the BD unless it's a clear improvement and I like the film more than average (until now: none).
(BTW: I would do the same thing the other way around, if applicable at all, it's not because of a preference I would entertain.)
