Rumors and Speculations: Upcoming HD DVD Releases
So after looking at quite a number of HD DVD movies (especially Batman Begins HD DVD which is now my demo disc), what are the possible upcoming titles that we may look forward to before the year ends? (The titles mentioned below are just pure personal speculation based on information from various sources.)
From Universal Studios, I think The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Conan the Barbarian, Dante's Peak and The Scorpion King may still be on Universal Studios' horizon. New films such as The Black Dhalia and Idlewild are possible contenders too.
From Warner, I believe The Matrix, Twister, The Green Mile Special Edition, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Ocean's Twelve is likely to be released on HD DVD. Under Siege, Alexander and the other films in The Matrix Trilogy and in the Harry Potter series are possible contenders too. I definitely looking forward to The Matrix (just the first one), Twister and Harry Potter films on HD DVD soon, preferably before the year is out.
From Paramount, they have mentioned a few other titles that are planned for HD DVD during the CES 2005 (1 year plus ago), but I wonder if they are still on Paramount's high-definition release radar. They include:
- Spongebob Squarepants
- Coach Carter
- School of Rock
- Forrest Gump
- Black Rain
- Save the Last Dance
- Vanilla Sky
- Star Trek: First Contact
Until my next post, have a nice weekend ahead!
