Earlier in the week, Amazon moved up the shipping date on my Hostel BD preorder. Today they emailed me and canceled the order stating "we've
since found that it is not available from any of our sources". Does anyone know if the film has been pulled?

Looks like a possible postponement to me. What is weird is the fact that the cover art was released in the last couple of days. Hostel II seems to still be available for pre-order.

That stinks if that's true. I might hold off on Hostel II now too since I can't get the first on BD.

Isn't Hostel even a Sony film?

Yes, it is a Soy film.

R.I.P. hd dvd 2/19/2008

Blu-ray is bigger than just Sony.

Man, amazon is screwy...so they cancel a preorder for this, but they tell everyone who ordered Blades of Glory that it's just been 'delayed'... I think they got their messages mixed up!

Here's the new preorder link. Looks like it was some type of system glitch:

Mine was canceled today also no explanation other that it wasn't available.

UPDATE: No biggie, I ordered the U.K. version from www.hdmoviesource.com and it'll be here in a couple of days

And it was only $24.95 plus $2.99 shipping

I'm not sure whats going on but it seems very odd. I remember I was looking around Amazon not to long ago and I saw the Hostel Blu-ray up but it wasn't for preorder it was saying add to cart but will not ship for 3 to 6 weeks or something like that. I'm assuming something was wrong with that therefore they removed it from their site and will put it back up with the preorder available. And besides I don't see Sony delaying this title.
