A weird request some might consider but it has grown into a favorite for me.

I have a couple of movies on my 2009 BD Wish-list: The Last of the Mohicans (1992) starring Daniel Day-Lewis and Madeleine Stowe and The Age of Innocence (1993) starring Day-Lewis and Michelle Pfeiffer. When both movies are released on BD, all will be well in the universe.

I'd add The Silence of the Lambs, however, that's already been announced.

I'd rather see TBB, FoF and WotD in HD than that POS. It had nothing to do with the real Bruce Lee or the book it was based on.

Actually I always liked Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story it had Lauren Holly (she's from around here). But I will agree that it wasn't very biographical.

A high quality player with a finished spec for a decent price.

I read "The Beach" and thought it was "Breach"...which is a flick I would love to see on Blu.

Will City of Ember be released on Blu-ray?

I did a search and came up with almost nothing about City of Ember, except for a thread about the horrible box office results, which might help answer my question. I see the DVD version listed as coming out January 20, but nothing about a Blu release. Amazon lists it as currently not available. So, does anyone have any information on a future Blu-ray release?

There has been no announcement made as of yet, but it does not look likely - mostly because of the horrible box office...Financially it probably doesn't make sense for them to put it out on BD.

It is coming to Blu-ray in the U.K.

I'm not sure if it's region free or not though. If it is, I expect I will be importing yet another title.

City of Ember - Blu-Ray ?

Why did 20th Century Fox release City of Ember on 1-20-09 on DVD but not on Blu-Ray? I was really wanting this one.

Poor Box Office numbers probably stopped this from coming out in Blu.

It is being released in the UK on blu-ray but no word if it's region free yet. If it is, I will be making a purchase.

Re: City of Ember - Blu-Ray ?

I mentioned this in the announcement thread, but this really sucks. I thought this was the best family movie of 2008 and I can't believe it didn't get a BD release.

This movie was horribly marketed.

I certainly hope that they release this one on Blu Ray. My dad saw it with my nephews when it came out and he highly recommended it. My daughter wants to see it as well, but it would be disappointing to have to buy this on DVD. After going blu DVD can look pretty weak.

Yeah, I've heard good things about this movie as well. It's just that Fox really screwed up the marketing for this movie.
