    yeah, but Hairspray hasn't even opened theatrically yet so we are looking probably at a minimum of 4 months or end of November before they release their very first title, and then shortly after that we hit the post Christmas lull. Unlikely they'll be releasing all that much in the first Q of 08, unless they are going to 'tag team' and let the other studios sit out a while , while they catch up a bit.
    Suppose the same strategy could be in the cards for Fox too.

    There's a handful of titles, both catalog and new, coming before this year is out that I'm excited about, but I'm thinking at this point 2008 on the whole is going to be better- at least for the kinds of stuff I want.

    Oh, and I see no reason whatsoever that NL would release the EEs of LOTR at this point. Not with a 1-2% market share. Makes much more sense to let the TVs fill the early void, and then in a few years (to tie-in with the Hobbit?) make a big splash with the EEs. By that time, there will still be a demand for them, and the money spent on the TVs by fans that just couldn't wait won't seem so bitter- and of course, the market will be that much bigger.
    Like Doug, I only really want the first two of the series in the EE form, and will happily settle with ROTK in the shorter theatrical cut.

    Um, yeah, great, I guess.

    Someone wake me up when they announce Dark City, Se7en, LOTR or Blade. [​IMG]

    Oh, yes, while you were napping another smaller studio went Blu. [​IMG] Back to sleep now, I'll wake you when something out-of-the-ordinary happens. [​IMG]

    Yes!

    Magnolia, Boogie Nights, The Sweet Hereafter, Short Cuts, The Player, A Prairie Home Companion, Night on Earth, Kansas City, The New World, American Splendor, The Sea Inside, The Five Senses, and to a lesser extent Se7en are titles I would purchase in HD - the first four being masterpieces.

    Hairspray doesn't cut it (for me). I want HD picture quality, but I don't want to sit through crap just to get it.

    It's bad enough that I have to wait for foreign films to get the HD treatment, but I have to wait for great American/Canadian films as well?

    I hope New Line has some of those titles in the works, although I get the feeling the next few films they announce will be quality titles like Son of the Mask, Dumb & Dumberer, Codename: The Cleaner, Mortal Kombat and Snakes on a Plane [​IMG]

    I hope this is factual. It would be nice to see New Line releasing in High Def.[​IMG]

    Wow. Didn't realize they had such slim pickings. Less than 10 titles in there I'd want to own. Hopefully they come out first. [​IMG]

    I would double dip for all of their Jason films, the Nightmare on Elm Street catalog, Critters 1 & 2, and LOTR.

    That's about it.

    Also, they distributed 'The Evil Dead' during its theatrical run, but I don't know why it's listed here. They no longer have rights and never distributed it on video/DVD.

    Since they are first time HD entries, they're really not a double dip yet. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Until a few years later, we get Hairspray: The Stronger Hold Edition. [​IMG]

    That list covers most of the major titles, but it's far from comprehensive -- go to IMDb for a more extensive list, although bear in mind that a lot of these films (especially the early releases from the '60s and '70s) aren't with the company anymore.

    I could possibly see New Line releasing The Nightmare on Elmstreet collection around Halloween. With Rush Hour 3 touching down in a few weeks, I could see this being another day/date title, perhaps with the first two films in the series.
