New Line Cinema abandons HD-DVD
Soon after the announcement of Warner Bros. supporting Blu-ray exclusively, subsidiary studio New Line Cinema stated it will follow suit and join Warner Bros. in leaving HD-DVD.
Now even though both these studios are moving to Blu-ray only, New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. are still under contract to release titles on HD-DVD until May 2008.
For those of you with stand-alone Blu-ray players or PlayStation 3's, you can now look forward to the following releases:
- Lord of the Rings Trilogy
- Golden Compass
- Gears of War (Movie)
- Austin Powers
More on Blu-ray and its rising domination of the HD movie market soon.
