Looks like you failed your homework assignment.
No I hadnt failed. Actually New Line is a division and owned by Warner Bros/Time Warner that supported both format. Liongate of course support Blu-ray but it is not based in Hollywood, Liongate is a Canadian company based in Vancouver. Bandai Visual Co Ltd produce animate films, it is not based in Hollywood too, in fact Bandai is a Japanese company based in Tokyo. Weinstein Company is based outside Hollywood in New York but I am not sure whether Weinstein Company still support HD-DVD, they were a member of HD-DVD Promotion Group but the listing ended 31 Dec 2006, Weinstein Company are no longer a member of HD-DVD. It been confirmed that Weinstein Company will release Blu-ray movies for the first time in the next few months, it remain to be seen whether Weinstein Company are backing Blu-ray 100%. MGM is a division and owned by Sony Pictures. Universal still back Blu-ray but will release movies on Blu-ray on the right time when the issues with Blu-ray sort out so they current release movies on HD-DVD at the moment.
