Studio Canal which was once HD DVD exclusive has now decided to go neutral. It will now support both Blu-ray and HD DVD formats
What movies does Studio Canal have?
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
Hot Fuzz is AWSOME!
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???
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.
What kind of movies does Studio Canal have?
Good news. Stuff like 28 weeks later will go Blu-ray, i think?
I heard that news too.
I wish all studios would do that and let the consumer decide which they want to support
You could just wait till the dual players are less than $999, then you wouldn't have to worry what kind of a disc your movie is on.
They sound familiar, but no movie comes to mind. Lemme check.
i think companies should remain neutral until the market forces one format out. now, it's a free market so they can go ahead and pick sides, but i'd rather this one wasn't decided for me by big companies paying other big companies off.
It's amazing someone disagreed with you.
I would agree that studios should stay neutral, though I do have to say I am happy to see HD DVD fighting bluray, when battle lines were drawn.
Before bluray gets to a price I'll pay for a player, a new format will be out.
Umm, everyone does realize that neutral is just a polite way to say "doesn't matter," right?
jeez. this is like some kill bill movie where HDDVD just WONT DIE!!
Scratching it with some steel wool.
Never was HD-DVD exclusive they made a movie on Blu-ray they have not jumped ship in any sense.
