    I can tell you for a fact that it will come out in the not too distant future.

    Godfather?!? Are you kidding me?!? Never!

    Right, Nasti?!? Not a chance in Hell, right?


    BTW, I'm still kind of scratching my head about them not announcing Blades of Glory, as it's sitting in a warehouse somewhere. I don't think I need it in HD. (I'm not so sure I even want to keep the DVD version I DO have. ) I just find it unusual.

    I agree . . . especially since it's quite possible that Face/Off was also pressed.

    We're still not out of the woods yet - neither Universal nor Paramount have released the all important SPECS for their titles - will we see new materials for BD, or will be simply see ports? At the very least, it seems that the content on the new Paramount releases have some serious BD-J programming involved - so they've been at least working behind the scenes.

    Paramount is definitely working on BD-J titles. The Jack Ryan collection is one example. I believe Transformers is as well.

    Well, good news according to Bill Hunt. It seems that going forward, Dolby THD is going to be standard on all future releases - save for the titles that were already remastered before.

    Blades of Glory (which is now streeting on 5/20 as well, so they found them!) will have uncompressed PCM, but Face/Off does not have any next-gen codecs as expected.

    Now word travelling the internets is that Universal has "heard the calls" from audiophiles around the world, and their upcoming slate of discs will include DTS-HD MA audio tracks - even on titles previously released on HD DVD - and on BD 50s, too. This is a VERY good sign.

    After reading that, other than Jack Ryan, I can also confirm that Top Gun is coming.
