Every studio was guarenteed a certain number of BD50 titles that Sony would effectively subsidize regardless of cost. I don't know if this was for a small 10,000 copy run or what.
Basically Lions Gate and others chose whatever titles for this they wanted. They don't have to use the full BD50 space, Superman Returns will likely come in at 30GB on BD50 and be the same size as the HD-30 release.
