So far, I think there is only an HD-DVD.
I have the HD-DVD and it looks amazing. I just got into Blu Ray, so I was curious when this will be on BD too. The Hi Def Digest site shows it as pending.
Heaven only knows!?! It could be a long wait. I decided to purchase a HD-DVD version cheaply to tide me over.
This is one title I'm especially glad to have on HD DVD as it could be years before it makes an appearance on BD (particularly if we count from its release on HD DVD).
Why do you think of it as a "tide over"? As long as one has a working HDDVD player, there's no "tiding over" involved (it's extremely unlikely that Warner would do a new transfer or add features for BR).
What leads you to believe it would possibly be years? The existing transfer and features could just easily be ported over to Blu-Ray
This is definitely one of the titles I am looking forward to on Blu-ray.
Well, you know these Media Companies - they have to have the 199% ABSOLUTELY perfect marketing opportunity to release catalog titles. And only the GODS know when that will occur for "Forbidden Planet"
A BD release could be when they release the theatrical remake. But I hope it's a lot sooner.
I have a feeling WB's will get all the titles that were released on HD-DVD released by the end of the year on BLU-RAY to finish the titles off, and catch up. If the materials are there for the release no use pushing back on making money.
Yup, that's the only thing the remake of The Day The Earth Stood Still was good for
I agree ... most remakes are really bad, and the only great point is getting a re-issue of the original film.
But if the title didn't make as much money as they wanted/thought it would on HD DVD, then they may not rush out to release it on Blu-ray if they expect it to do similar sales - especially with the state of the economy now vs. when the HD DVD was released.
I watched the DVD yesterday (upscaled) and was amazed by how good it looked. I never saw the HD-DVD, but I imagine it was sublime to behold. I really hope this title shows up on Blu sooner rather than later. Anne Francis in HD? I am SO there.
Forbidden Planet is one of the few remaining caveats of getting suckered into the HD DVD format. I'm in no rush for a BD now unless my player suddenly craps out.
Ditto! I'm glad I only double dipped on 25 films.
Thought i would pop this up and see if anyone has heard any more about FORBIDDEN PLANET. Would be a nice title to have on Blu.
I wouldn't be surprised if Warner holds it until 2011 for its 55th Anniversary.
I wouldn't be surprised if anniversary dates for this title are meaningless to Warner.
I'd like to see it sooner, then later.
