Does the "Black Dahlia" HD-DVD exist?

I saw it mentioned in the Best Buy circular a couple weeks ago (which in and of itself was unusual), but neither of the Best Buys nearby had any, and I haven't seen any evidence of its existence anywhere else. Is it a case of having to get lucky to find it, like Poseidon a month ago, or did Universal tell everybody but Best Buy it was canceled?

The thing is, I saw a couple copies of Poseidon on the shelf in Newbury Comics on its original release date in December. I was wondering if maybe Black Dahlia had shown up in some places and not others.

Well, it arrived this afternoon. I've yet to undo the shrinkwrap, but it's NOT a combo (at least the cover isn't).

Re: The Black Dahlia

It appears that there has never been an official release date for TBD HD-DVD. I. I, too, have looked at every dealer in my area and have never seen a sign of it.

My assumption is that whoever put together the Best Buy flyer just made a big mistake.

Right -- despite the Best Buy ad and an onslaught of rumors, The Black Dahlia was never officially announced. It's one of the only Universal releases since they started releasing day/date titles on HD DVD to be snubbed, for whatever reason. (American Dreamz is the only other one, I believe.)
