Ah, Paramount why do you tease us? Just when we thought we were finally going to get rid of that annoying asterisks once and for all, you seemly move back all the re-issues to June 3rd, and to make it worse, the most highly anticipated Paramount titles like Bee Movie, There Will Be Blood and Cloverfield are delayed as well -- honestly we're not sure who's right at this point, but we're going to error on the side of caution on this one. But that doesn't meant it isn't a great week, as there are a number of titles to get excited about this week including what is easily the biggest in National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets. Another title this week that happens to be near and dear to our childhood, that we look forward to enjoying for the first time all over again on Blu-ray is Short Circuit. And finally Warner catches Blu-ray up to HD DVD on one of the biggest titles -- still waiting for The Matrix -- with V For Vendetta. It should be noted that for the first time in a long time, DVD doesn't have any exclusives worth mentioning which should make for an interesting week when the Nielsen VideoScan numbers are released.

Blu-ray 546*
