Best Blu-Ray Rumours Ever!
I have for you 3 of the greatest Blu-Ray rumour reports of at least this month!:

http://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=3886

"In a recent interview for Reel Time (a programme on the CineMagic XM radio channel), Peter Jackson said he is currently restoring his "early films" for release on Blu-ray. No specific titles were mentioned, but Jackson was probably referring to his three first movies, which have become cult favorites in their own right: 'Bad Taste', 'Meet the Feebles' and 'Braindead' (also known as Dead Alive)."

"So let's start with what we think are the most exciting developments first. Based on information gathered from scores of industry sources over the last few months, we have strong reason to believe that Lucasfilm and Paramount are planning to bow the classic Indiana Jones Trilogy on Blu-ray in 2010, followed by at least some or all of the Star Wars films in 2011 (either the classic or prequel trilogies... or possibly even the long-awaited complete saga box set). As we've already been reporting for a while now, Fox's Alien Anthology box set is also due in 2010. And with the two Hobbit films due in 2011 and 2012, it's reasonable to assume that The Lord of the Rings: Extended Editions will be out on Blu-ray by the end of 2012 as well. One can also expect that the studios are going to try to capitalize on the DVD/3-D Blu-ray release of James Cameron's Avatar (sometime next year) to bow other Cameron catalog films in HD, so possibilities could include The Abyss, True Lies and even Titanic. What's more, in addition to the Indy films, our sources say that you're very likely to see key additional Spielberg catalog films arrive on Blu-ray in 2010 and 2011, as the director is a major supporter of the format. Word is that Jaws, the Jurassic Park films, War of the Worlds, Minority Report and Saving Private Ryan are all possible suspects. We also know that Apollo 13 is coming to BD early next year from Universal (April will be the 40th anniversary of the original NASA mission), and with the original Back to the Future film celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2010, don't be surprised to see at least one (if not all) of those films as well. And that doesn't even begin to include all of the vintage classics being prepared by Warner, Sony and other studios for BD release - including Ben-Hur, The African Queen, Lawrence of Arabia and others -
nor the classic Disney animated features already announced for release in 2010 and beyond. Bottom line... the next few years are going to be HUGE for major catalog titles on Blu-ray. So start saving up your money now, folks.

As always, the above information is to be considered unofficial and subject to change until the studios in question make official announcements."

"Alrighty... hot on the heels of our report from earlier this week about the Indiana Jones and Star Wars films, not to mention TONS of others, coming to Blu-ray in 2010 and 2011, our industry sources have checked in again with still MORE word on great classic catalog titles on the way to Blu-ray next year. This has been confirmed with several different sources now, so while the street dates are all TBA, we know that these titles are planned and actively being worked on for release in 2010...

Warner Bros. has a Dr. Zhivago: 40th Anniversary - Ultimate Collector's Edition on the way to Blu-ray next year, along with Poseidon, Where Eagles Dare, Kelly's Heroes, Absolute Power, The Rookie (the Clint Eastwood film), National Lampoon's Vacation and National Lampoon's European Vacation, the long-awaited (on BD) Excalibur, Mars Attacks, The Maltese Falcon and the first season of the TV show Friends.

And Paramount (and DreamWorks) - in addition to the classic Indy Trilogy - has Stardust, Collateral, Shrek, Shrek 2 and Steven Spielberg's War of the Worlds and Saving Private Ryan due on Blu-ray in the year ahead. Not too shabby. 2010 is definitely going to be an expensive year for catalog BD fans!

As always, the above information is to be considered unofficial and subject to change until the studios in question make official announcements. Stay tuned..."
