    I know they are releasing Tremors the Series. But i dont know about any of the movies, not for Blu-ray.
    If you see it on Amazon, give a guy a link, cause id buy the first 2 movies. But not the series.

    That would be very cool. I hope it comes! I still have the old non-anamorphic DVD, as i am a hater of the Universal DVD-18s the Franchise collection came in.

    If that's true it'll likely be the same disc the US gets, and around the same time.

    Cool! Forbidden Planet is a must have and it will be great to have Grand Prix!

    If this is true that they'll come out in France, then the US is hopefully not too long behind. Since they are planning on a FP sequel of sorts, I thought they would delay the original on BD for a while.

    No, Sony has not yet released Holy Grail on BD. I'd be slightly shocked to not see it come out this year, as it's always been a money maker on home video for them.

    I actually thought this was already out, but I must've gotten mixed up with when Life of Brian came out.

    And Now For Something Completely Different too, although that's just a some refilmed material from the first season and some new material from the second one put together. Live At The Hollywood Bowl was also shot on film, I believe.

    The following was released 1/19/10 from Universal and has been removed:

    Smokin' Aces

    As a side note, this brings the # of Universal catch-up titles down to under 100.

    That makes only 32 titles in my collection for which there is no BD available. Of those, I estimate about a third that will be that way for at least another year, probably two. However, it is good to see that, should my three HD DVD players (two stand alone and one combo computer drive) fail, I will be able to replace a good number of them with BDs (I have about 160 HD DVDs in total).

    Stardust is hitting Blu-ray Disc 02/01/2010 in the UK. Has there been any word on a US release?

    I've learned that, when it comes to Warner, one shouldn't go by unofficial lists. They're schedule is too fluid, and too many times I've seen titles on "leaked" lists be months off in their release date accuracy.

    Besides, none of those are catch-up titles.
