HD DVD Rumors - Warner's Rumored May 30 HD DVD Titles

Please note that what I am about to say in the following paragraphs are purely rumors. Please take it with a pinch of salt until official announcements are made.

Details over some corners of the Internet seems to suggest that release date and pricing for 2 "major" HD DVD titles are confirmed. The rumors also suggest some release dates reshuffle is expected in Warner's planned HD DVD titles.

The 2 rumored HD DVD titles that is due from Warner on May 30 are:
>> Batman Begins (Special Edition)
>> Constantine

It is also rumored that both titles are very likely to have Dolby TrueHD 5.1 tracks on top of the usual Dolby Digital-Plus. HD DVD exclusive bonus materials may also be expected for both titles.

The pricing should be rather similar to other Warner HD DVD titles released.

We should know whether this rumor and any of the related rumors are true... before May 26. I do wish they are true...

Update: It seems that Twister and Lethal Weapon are also rumored contenders... for the May 30 release date. But choosing between Twister and Lethal Weapon, give me Twister with Dolby TrueHD 5.1. By the way, Twister was Warner's first DVD title and it also seems to be the first DVD title that Warner included a DTS 5.1 audio track. (Warner does not have a usual practice of including DTS tracks on DVDs as compared to Universal Studios).
