New Line Cinema also moves to Blu-ray exclusivity
In the wake of the big Warner Bros. announcement to exclusively support Blu-ray, some people may not have noticed New Line Cinema's transition into Blu-ray as well. (Both New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. are owned by Time Warner. PS3 Fanboy is also owned by AOL/Time Warner.) Formerly a supporter of both formats (kind of), New Line has decided to phase out its HD DVD support and go blu. Their only film released on HD DVD was Pan's Labyrinth. So it's not exactly a big deal, since they were basically all about Blu-ray from the start, but it's just another studio to stick in the already feathered cap of Sony.

Some examples of New Line films include The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. We welcome New Line's decision and so should you.
