Sorry if it read that way, Grubert. It wasn't my intent. As a suggestion, would it be possible to get an individual table for each format?

I don't think so.

First, this layout has worked well (at least IMO) for nearly a year, with very few complaints.

Second, there are forum members who have players from both formats and are therefore interested in knowing what is going to get released, regardless of the color of the box. Additionally, several forum members, who currently own only one format, have expressed their willingness to buy the other format were a specific title to be available in such other format.

Third, many potential buyers of a player are going to turn to sites like this one for information. Making a decision involves knowing what content is available or announced, and by splitting the tables we'd be doing those people a disservice.

Fourth, there are many disaggregated tables out there if you want one (high def digest or home theater forum come to mind). OTOH, agnostic schedules are very thin on the ground.

Last but not least, I don't believe in sticking your fingers in your ears and going la la la la la.

Paramount actually announced some titles? LOL. Payback is the Director's cut so I'll pick that up the BD since I only have the original version, which was just OK.

Grubert, you might want to change the date for Payback, it was announced for 4/10, not 2/20.

Plus, since the studios are hellbent on not announcing anything on HD DVD, it's not like there are all that many titles listed in red anyway.

I'm not sure if I should follow that with a happy-face emoticon or a frown.

I missed Babel's theatrical release, so I'm glad Paramount is putting this out before the Oscars.

Remember all, this is NOT a discussion thread. This is only for dates and announcements. That's why we needed a new thread in the first place

Alexander Revisited: The Unrated Final Cut

I didn't see this posted, but Alexander Revisited: The Unrated Final Cut comes out on both Blu-ray and HD-DVD on 2/27/07.


DEC. 18 | Oliver Stone hopes the third time’s the charm with Warner’s Feb. 27 release Alexander Revisited: The Unrated Final Cut.

When Alexander originally hit DVD, Stone crafted a shorter director’s cut of the film, which bowed on shelves at the same time as the theatrical version in August 2005.

Alexander Revisited features an additional 45 minutes of footage that was sliced from the theatrical edition for its length and explicit content. Also, movie cash to see March 9 Warner theatrical 300 is packed into each disc box.

The new Alexander disc is priced at $24.98, with orders due Jan. 23. HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc versions are expected sometime in 2007.

Alexander was not a huge hit in the U.S., grossing $34 million at the box office, but Warner officials believe another edition is worthwhile. To date, the two earlier Alexander disc releases have sold 3.5 million units.


“Most director’s cuts and special editions are typically two to 10 minutes longer, and here we have [an extra] 45 minutes,” said Jeffrey Baker, Warner senior VP and general manager of theatrical catalog. “Oliver really wanted to show the viewer what these battle scenes were really like, and the extended scenes of the battles give you the realism and sheer horror of them. There are [also] salacious scenes, heterosexual and homosexual, which tell quite a different version of the story than what we saw in theaters.”

Warner hopes the rollout of Alexander Revisited will enhance the studio’s reputation as a dominant force in catalog DVD. In November, Warner released the hefty seven-film Superman: Ultimate Collector’s Edition, featuring a new version of Superman II created by Superman: The Movie director Richard Donner.

“What we did with Donner and now with Alexander really reinforces the fact that, where it makes sense, we are supportive of getting filmmakers’ visions onto the small screen,” said Baker. “The studio

If you read the piece carefully, you'll notice only the DVD is slated for February 27. HD DVD and Blu-ray are mentioned to be "expected sometime in 2007." Probably will be day-and-date, but we don't know for sure (remember Poseidon).

Thunderball: I expect a lot or titles being announced in January during CES.

I said it when I first started this calendar back in April: this thread is for American releases.

An international HD DVD listing would be a great idea, considering HD DVD is not region-coded at the moment. Other forum members are free to start such a thread.

MGM Bumps 'Bride,' Previews March Blu-ray Titles
Wed Dec 20, 2006 at 04:02 PM ET
Tags: Disc Announcements, MGM (all tags)

Good news and bad news from MGM Home Entertainment today: the studio provided a sneak peek at its March lineup of Blu-ray titles, but also announced a street date delay for 'The Princess Bride.'

Originally scheduled to debut on February 13, 2007, along with 'The Usual Suspects,' we've received notice from MGM that 'Bride' has now been indefinitely postponed with no new date set. The studio offered no reason for the delay, with 'Suspects' remaining as scheduled.

MGM has also released preliminary information to online retailers for its March line-up of Blu-ray catalog titles. Expected on March 13 is an impressive slate of genuine modern classics, including 'Dances with Wolves,' 'The Silence of the Lambs,' 'Hoosiers' and the 1999 remake of 'The Thomas Crown Affair.'

No specs or further details are available, though we expect MGM to officially announce the titles early in new year. Stay tuned.
