HD DVD Backer Weinstein Goes Missing In Action; Speculation Mounts

Highdefdigest writes:

"With no releases or announcements from the Weinstein Company in over four months, speculation is mounting that there are changes afoot for the HD DVD exclusive distributor.

Could the studio be re-evaluating its HD DVD exclusivity stance? That's the current speculation among industry insiders and fans alike.

We recently brought the question to the studio itself, asking a Weinstein spokesperson to comment on the ongoing rumors, but his response seems likely to only add fuel to fire. "We aren't commenting on our High-Def plans at this time" was the only word back from the studio.

So what's cooking? Darned if we know, but with such highly anticipated next-gen titles as 'Grindhouse' and '1408' waiting in the wings, here's hoping the studio will break its silence sometime soon."

Weinstein can stay HD-DVD for all I care. I could care less about 1408, Clerks II, or Wolf Creek. Pulse was terrible Lucky number Slevin was okay and Scary Movie 4 was abysmal.

Weinstein's films usually come out during Fall and Winter, during the Oscar season. So Weinstein is "MIA" because they really currently don't have any "action".

Then how do you explain their vague comment when asked?
Believe what you like, but I think they're waking up to reality.

im not interested in hd right yet but im getting closer to it just would like to see a winner either hd dvd or blu ray.

If they're small company then they probably jumped out of high definition alltogether. There isn't money made even if you're multi-format. The companys who are in it are just trying to establish a brand and create a foundation. Blu-ray wins in the end anyway, so they're waiting.

with the SE of Stranglehold will be the first Weinstein company HD release in a long time. They should try to actually make good movies to put out on anything HD.
