I love that the cover says "From the director of Blade II and Hellboy." :)

DVDTown has posted specs for the BD of Independence Day:

* Widescreen Theatrical Feature
* Scene Specific Commentary by Director Roland Emerich and Producer Dean Devlin
* Commentary by Oscar-Winning FX supervisors Volker Engel and Doug Smith
* Trivia Track
* Search Content
* Personal Scene Selections
* Alien Scavenger Hunt (Java Game)
* D-Box
* Second Session
* Theatrical Teaser
* 3 Theatrical Trailers

Sounds like Fox dropping the second disc from a two-disc set again...and no seamless branching for the extended cut? Unfortunate.

With that ID4 information, my list of Fox BD's to purchase drops to zero :(. I probably would have caved and still bought it if it had the extended cut. Maybe I can score the few I wanted off of eBay for decent prices a little way down the line.

Columbia House has listed Superbad - Blu-ray for 12/4/07, which confirms the information in matome's highdefdigest link above. And perhaps because it is a two disc set the list price is a stunning $43.95!

It would appear that Sony wants to give Fox some competition for "most overpriced titles".

I thought prices for BDs would be coming down a bit by now. Guess not. Instead they are going up.

Per Kocheese99 on AVS:

My distributor is showing the US versions of Con Air and The Rock coming to Blu-Ray on 01/08/08 with MSRP for each being $29.99.

That's one shitty price. Even with Amazon's usual 30% discount on top of my 10% promo discount, I'd still have to pay 27.69. I haven't seen the film so this may be a rental for me.

lizard 10-09-07 01:14 PM

^I wonder if this means that the list price for the coming Lawrence of Arabia BD will be $50+?

I'm really glad I never bought Pan's Labyrinth on DVD. That'll be a great film to watch in HD. I'll most-likely end up getting the Blu-ray over the HD-DVD, though. Thanks for the news.

According to blu-ray.com:

Shoot 'Em Up - 01/01/08
New Line Home Entertainment has announced that they will bring the Clive Owen and Paul Giamatti action film 'Shoot 'Em Up' to Blu-ray on January 1st. Extras will include a commentary track, deleted scenes, and the documentary "Ballet of Bullets: Making 'Shoot 'Em Up'".

I'm hoping that LOA will be on one disc, at least the movie. They could probably fit the DVD's documentary on there as well, so unless they have new supplements there may be no need for a second disc. (Of course, I do hope there are more extras.)

Even if it is 2 discs, it's a catalog title so it should be cheaper than Superbad.

I agree with you, but don't tell Sony that.

Drexl 10-15-07 06:32 PM

Well, it's good to see The Pianist get released so importing won't be necessary from then on.

bunkaroo 10-15-07 06:46 PM

Everyone should thank me for finally buying the import, as that's clearly why they've announced this now. :D

PopcornTreeCt 10-15-07 07:02 PM

I recently bought the import too.
