Highlander (dvd), Fifth Element (initial blu), House of Flying Daggers to name a few.....

July is looking to be a huge Blu-Ray month (see front post with all July releases). Especially July 29....

While mostly catch up titles, Paramount seems to have a very aggressive slate.

Good times.

Awesome!

Thanks for the heads up!

What is this release all about? It seems incredibly unlikely that there would be another SKU for this only a month after the 20th Anniversary Edition release. Perhaps this is a mistake by Amazon?

Yeah, the somewhat maligned release last month: Dirty Dancing (20th Anniversary Edition). I suppose this could be a reissue or a stripped down version, but it seems more likely that Amazon accidentally tagged a DVD release as Blu-ray.

That was May 8, 2007, not 2008. Judging from Lionsgate's history, it's entirely possible they're putting out another new disc for this movie.

Oh duh - yeah, that was released last May not this May. I don't know what I was thinking. Lionsgate is indeed the king of DVD double-dip (and triple... and quadruple...), so I guess we'll see.
