Quick: Who has the third largest film library in the world
Now if you didn't cheat and read the title then you may have been like me and never heard of StudioCanal
until five minutes ago. If you have, the fact that this French distributor has just announced they are releasing 30 HD-DVD titles in the near future is no surprise because you're probably well aware they are the French arm of Vivendi Universal
. French HDTV owners can look forward to titles like Million Dollar Baby
, or The Graduate
as well as French flicks like La Haine
and Brotherhood of the Wolf
We've had some updates on Japan-only high definition releases but very little information about Europe. Maybe some of our European readers can tell us what kind of splash next generation DVDs are making over there, or not.
All of this is of little consequence to those of us in the U.S., the real question is when can we start importing foreign HD-DVDs and looking down on people who dislike subtitles?
