HD DVD and Blu-ray releases on September 18th, 2007

Ben Drawbaugh

Blu-ray is the first to break 300 available titles, but not for long in our list, as we'll be deducting the 32 Paramount titles in a few weeks. Looking ahead, it appears that HD DVD was on pace to pass Blu-ray regardless. In fact it would've been worse if Fox hadn't announced that they'd be back in the game in October. As for this week, the biggest news is the non-release of Quentin Tarantino's Death Proof, as both HD DVD and Blu-ray get snubbed by the Weinstein Company -- who's been MIA in their HD DVD support since June 12th and doesn't have any titles on the calendar. There are a couple day-and-date releases this week, but the biggest is the long awaited We Are Marshall from Warner, which appears on both formats. Overall this is a big week for both formats with ten titles each, including some very strong catalog titles from Warner and Sony.
