Seems kind of late. Surprised they are just getting released now in the States.

Splurged on the HK BD Boxset a while ago.

A bit surprised to see Elite moving into Blu-ray. I thought they were defunct - most of their catalog is out of print. It would be great to get their Millenium Edition of Night of the Living Dead in HD.
Not expecting that one! Awesome film

Like 'The Egyptian', Twilight Time has licensed some Columbia titles from Sony for limited pressings (3000 each). Great for people that are only interested in a couple/few films or have the budget to withstand buying films at those prices. Not so good for people that might want many titles or blind buy.
Sony farmed out Harryhausen?

Unfortunate indeed. But I want it.

I believe those are Sony titles. So are they from Sony at a normal price, or are they ultra-limited and expensive Twilight Time releases?

Re: Blu-ray release announcements - Part IV

Beautiful Girls is listed for a UK release on BD. Anyone know if Optimum region locks their releases? This is WAY up high on my list of wants and I thought we might not get it. I'd take it from anywhere then, so I guess I can gross my fingers that this one will be region free and, if there are any extras (for the life of me, I can't remember what's on the dvd), that they're not in PAL. Can I get lucky for once on a small title import??

I'm pretty sure all of the Optimum discs I've imported have been region B.

Thanks...figures. This is one of those catalog titles I actually think about all the time. I really hope this release means it will get released elsewhere soon, maybe even here, but anywhere that it isn't locked, I'll pay whatever to import it.

I don't see how you could have forgotten the awesome Miramax disc, which I happen to have right here. "Special features include: Dolby Surround, Chapter Search."

Love this scene:

If the release is anything like The Misfits, expect it to go OOP on 9/20. I'd grab this one fast while it's out there.

There's also a surprise appearance of the first season of Archer on Blu-ray for 9/13 too. Guess someone at Fox/MGM is forgetting to send out press releases or something?

Re: Blu-ray release announcements - Part IV

This fall, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is planning to release the horror/comedy Attack the Block on Blu-ray. The feature-film debut from Joe Cornish (co-writer of both TV's The Adam and Joe Show and Steven Spielberg's upcoming The Adventures of Tintin) focuses on a London street gang that must save their apartment block from a horde of ravenous space aliens. Featuring an acclaimed electronica soundtrack by Steven Price & Basement Jaxx, Attack the Block stars Jodie Whittaker (Good), Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead), and newcomer John Boyega as Moses, the gang's troubled leader-turned-reluctant hero.

While Sony has not confirmed the Blu-ray's complete technical specifications, it will present the film in its original aspect ratio of 2.39:1. The disc also contains a number of special features, including:

"Junior" commentary with writer/director Joe Cornish and actors John Boyega, Alex Esmail, Franz Drameh, Simon Howard, and Leeon Jones
"Senior" commentary with Cornish and actors Jodie Whittaker, Luke Treadaway, and Nick Frost
"Executive Producer" commentary with Cornish and executive producer Edgar Wright (Hot Fuzz)
Behind the Block featurette
Creature Feature featurette
Meet the Gang featurette
Unfilmed Action featurette
That's a Rap featurette

Attack the Block is expected to street on October 25th.

Nice, I had been waiting for it to hit $9.99 but ordered one from B & N for around $12 once I heard it was going OOP. It's still in stock at many e-tailers, but that will no doubt change over the next month or so.

Re: Blu-ray release announcements - Part IV

I need to know about Kung Fu Panda 2, everywhere I have read says it is scheduled to be released on October 11, but videoeta.com has it slated for a November release, it less than four weeks for a 10/11 release date with nothing confirmed, can someone tell me when Paramount is going to make a official press release with official release date

Re: Blu-ray release announcements - Part IV

Considering the short notice Paramount gave for TF3 (even though the first release is barebones), I'd say they could still get something together for an Oct. release. However, I'd guess Nov. seems more likely.
