Blu-ray: Casino Royale, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Rocky Balboa and more soon...
 
Here's an upcoming release list for blu-ray movies. The links lead to info on the movie and provide a pre-order button from Amazon. Incubus and The Curse of the Golden Flower are listed in the release list but I couldn't find a pre-order link for them yet. I tried to compare the blu-ray release list with the list that www.hidefdigest.com provides to make sure they're accurate but don't blame me, if I made a mistake or something changes. :)

I really hope the the blu-ray and HD DVD camps pick up the pace sometime soon.

I know Eragon looked cheesy but my brother brought my nephew to see it and said it was actually very good... i might pick it up... but it is a Fox title if I remember right... so it will be like 28 bucks on Amazon :(.

EDIT: Oh and "Me, Myself and Irene" FTW!!!!!

Yeah, a friend of mine saw Eragon with his son and really liked it. He said it was basically a family friendly LoTR type movie. I meant to catch it at the theater but never got around to it so I'm sure I'll pick that one up.

Im usually always up on checking with future Blu Ray releases at the official site :) The only real movie I see pre-ordering is 'Relentess Enemies' National Geographic, all the other ones dont really seem to be on my list until come May, Pirates of the Carribean 1 & 2

Yeah, me too (as you can tell from the links I used). I just posted it to provide balance. :)

A lot of the Fox movies keep getting changed so I don't think I'd risk pre-ordering those unless they show up on the list somewhere like BB. From what I've seen, places like BB seem to be a little more accurate with the pre-orders. Like Mr. and Mrs. Smith wasn't showing up there while it was still showing up at blu-ray, Amazon and hidefdigest. I was wondering why that was and then just recently, Mr. & Mrs. Smith was delayed.

Hmm, I show the Holiday as the 20th but it's out now. I saw that today while picking up Casino Royale and Layer Cake.

I am really hoping National Geographic 'Relentless Enemies' does not get pushed back. I have been looking forward to that documentary for some time now, just love watching nature at it's finest in HD. The other day the Discovery Channel aired a special on Shark Attacks in Hi-Def and it was breath taking. I know broadcasted HD is not near as good quality as HD dVD but still amazing

It looks like Casino Royale is doing well. Apparently, it is the first hi-def movie to make Amazon's top ten list (normally dominated by the standard-def versions).

Quote:

In another high-def first, the Blu-ray edition of 'Casino Royale' cracked the top ten on Amazon's DVD top sellers list upon its release Tuesday, peaking late in the evening at #8.

Updated hourly, the Amazon list tracks all video disc sales at Amazon, including standard-def DVD, Blu-ray and HD DVD. And while the top of the list is usually dominated by standard-def DVD releases, some early adopters have made sport out of tracking how next-gen releases on both formats stack up in Amazon's overall rankings, spawning at least two frequently updated head-to-head charts (at HdGameDb and eProductWars ), and countless posts on our own Smackdown Forum.

The strong performance for 'Casino Royale' at Amazon would seem to back up predictions that the latest Bond flick would score record-breaking overall first-week sales for a next-gen disc. The current record holder is the Blu-ray edition of 'The Departed,' which as we reported last week is said to have sold a total of 20,000 units in its first week out last month.
