What movies does Studio Canal have?

Mu5afir3528d ago (Edited 3528d ago )

Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Rambo: First Blood Part II, Basic Instinct etc.. these are movies I would love to see in Blu-Ray. Hot Fuzz and Shooting Aces are the other two recent movies they have released.

But what is important is that it has the 3rd largest movie library in the world. And it is owned by Vivindi a company that owns 20% of Universal. Now we wait and see, if Universal well become neutral. If this happens it would be a HUGE boost for Blu-Ray.

I dont see reasons behind's Universal HDDVD backing.

anyway i believe we would be having Universal on BD's side as well

Not gonna get it though. But ya should rent it.

Studio Canal is the third largest because it has a lot of foreign films.

Studio Canal does NOT own Terminator II. Terminator II was released in 1991. Studio Canal was founded in 1996. Rambo and Basic Instinct came out even before that.

Terminator II and Rambo are ALREADY on Blu-ray, if you have not been paying attention to Blu-ray catalogue.

Studio Canal is a french studio, which mainly deal in small, independent and foreign films.

Those titles are owned by Vivendi, which in turn distribute films for Studio Canal.

good news for the blu-ray side(me). maybe you should tweak the title a bit as it led me to thinking they had gone blu only. just a suggestion.

haha take that hd-dvd!!!!!!!!!!!!

jk lol who in the he11 is Studio Canal???

cuco333528d ago

they announced they went neutral, not exclusive elsewhere probably because hd dvd in europe is taking some time to get going. wouldn't matter for you BD fans since your sh*t is region coded and hence you can't import titles overseas and play them on your ps3

U-571 is one that comes to mind, but there are a few more.
