The Daily Blu…September 16, 2009

It’s kind of been a busy day full of Blu-ray announcements around the world wide web.  Let’s see.  Where do we start?  The Criterion Collection is bringing A Christmas Tale to Blu-ray on December 1st.  At the same time, Criterion Collection also delayed three Blu-ray titles.  Monsoon Wedding, originally scheduled for October 13th, will hit retail shelves on October 20th.  Howard’s End and Wings of Desire will now see a release date of November 3rd, instead of October 20th.

In Blu-ray news not related to Criterion, 20th Century Fox has announced The Mel Brooks Collection for a December 15th release date.  The set, which contains 9 films, includes Blazing Saddles, High Anxiety, History of the World Part 1, Robin Hood: Men in Tights, Silent Movie, Spaceballs, To Be or Not to Be, Twelve Chairs and Young Frankenstein.

Rumor has it that the next direct-to-video DC Universe animated title, from Warner Home Video, will be Justice League: Crisis of Two Earths.  Don’t expect this title anytime soon.  The rumored release date is not until spring of 2010.

That’s all the Blu-ray news for today.  Make it a blu one!


ONE HECK OF A PROMOTER!!! Also a Dreamer, Producer, Agent of Love, Film Lover, Writer of Screenplays and a Devoted Apostle to all things Ford Mustangs (the real ones with V8's!). Some of my favorite films include FIGHT CLUB, MOULIN ROUGE, THE DARK KNIGHT, STAR WARS alongside television shows such as SEINFELD, 24, SANFORD & SON and even the often loathed in the geek community BIG BANG THEORY. Outside of my three lives I live I also enjoy spending time with my girlfriend and our three girls (of the furry kind).
