I don't care if this ends up being on HD DVD or Blu-ray. Just let the date stick!

Please Paramount! Do it for the children!!!

The price is pretty damn cheap too. This has to be a mistake.

I wouldn't put much stock into it. How many times have we seen Star Wars and such up? Wishful thinking.

With a date and price tag attached? Something that wasn't just a placeholder entry but a title you could actually pre-order? Never, as far as I know.

I'm not saying I have any confidence in this HD DVD set actually coming out, but this is different than the meaningless placeholders we've seen on Amazon in the past.

Ahh, I didn't even click the link. I just assumed it was a place holder title like all the others. There were rumors a few months ago about Godfather coming out in the UK, so it is possible...but at this point, I don't think we will see very many HD DVDs coming out

Edit: For $28 USA I pre-ordered it. Why not.

How did you get that price? Even with VAT subtracted, it comes up to 19.14/$37.xx on my end.

I have no idea. Almost Famous was around the same price (I think) and it was $28 American for me. I have no idea of the conversion thing.

Do you have to buy the trilogy? I'd rather have just I and II.

Almost Famous was 11.48 before shipping.

Oh...bugger. I'll cancel it then. Not paying $50 for a trilogy I have never seen (yeah, really).

I ordered it. That's a grand bargain if the price sticks.

The Godfather is on AMC right now if you wanna give it a shot.
