Wow, that's waaaaayyyyyyy sooner than I thought. Hopefully there's a 2-disc release from Dreamworks right from the get-go.

Where did you see this? I haven't seen it on any of the major sites...everything I'd read said November.

I don't mean to thread-crap, but I'm still pissed this won't be on Blu-Ray... I hope there is a good SD release!

Wow, the date I have is December 11. I have a feeling this is meant to help push the HD-A3, which is a fanfuckingtastic idea. It'd be even better if they bundle it, but they probbly won't. They know it'll sell like Shiacakes anyway.

Link?

Just questioning because mid-October is not exactly holiday shopping time for most people. The December release with the A3 seemed more appropriate.

Don't people usually ask Mao for a link, even though he's always right? I know he has his 'sources', so he probably can't provide a link.

Mao doesn't make stuff up so he had to have heard from somewhere. And I'm sure we'll find out where soon enough!

Totally agree that he probably knows. It's hard to have discussion on teaser posts though.

Doesn't say DVD or HD-DVD. The timing doesn't really make sense in mid-Oct. Details to follow -when?

Good for an announcement, and I fully believe he is correct, just doesn't give us anything to really discuss (yet).

I think that date is right. I read about this yesterday on another forum (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/forums/...=63979&start=0).

People on AVS were mentioning this October 16th date last week, so if Mao is reporting it now, it looks legit. That is WAY SOONER than I had imagined - I'll be all over the HD DVD.

It's just hard to believe for sure when a source isn't even mentioned.

Plus, DavisDVD (among others) was reporting a November release as of last week.

How about the humans, while they're at it.

Regardless of whether it is released on October 16th or a later date during the holiday shopping season, count me in for the HD-DVD release. It was a fun popcorn movie that should look fantastic in hi def.
