Um...yes, please!  Fincher's first masterpiece hits HD.

"Because he's the hero Gotham deserves.  But, not the one it needs right now.  So, we'll hunt.  Because he can take.  Because, he's not a hero.  He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector.  A DARK KNIGHT."

I love it, but... before too much cork popping, isn't this a New Line title? Here's to hoping that all goes well.

Without derailing the thread, I'm a little confused by this. Wasn't New Line a division of Warner from the start? By "folded into", does that mean that past New Line DVD titles will only carry the Warner brand on Blu-Ray? If that is true, why do some New Line Blu-Rays retain their distinction? The Austin Powers and Dark City titles come to mind.

New Line was a separate company that was a wholly owned subsidiary of Warner. That meant that New Line had its own staff and ran its own business.

In 2008, Warner made the decision to shut down New Line as a separate company. They laid off just about everyone and took over all the business of New Line by creating a separate division within Warner. The New Line label still exists, and Warner controls it. It will continue to appear on various properties for a variety of reasons, some contractual, but most of them related to copyright.


I can't get more specific than that without seeing the corporate paperwork, and I haven't.

Thanks for the info. This sounds very similar to the Sony/Fox/MGM arrangement.

Currently MGM is what New Line used to be - their own entity that is owned by other corporations, but autonomous in their business structure. New Line is no longer even this, as Warner makes all decisions in regards to home video releases and future projects. New Line is essentially now nothing more than a brand name, like Touchstone is for Disney.


"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

Agreed. However, they should've went with New Line's notebook design (which, if my memory is correct, was Criterion's original idea). That red cover is one ugly mutha


 

RIP Roberto Gomez Bolanos.

GREAT news!  Been "lusting" for this "greedily" since I went blu, and especially since the Zodiac 2-disc set came out. I like the red cover, but I agree that the notebook design would have been great for this.

I guess, for this one, I'll wait for the US release rather than the inexpensive (but rather bare-bones) Canadian version.
