In the most expansive release shake-up in the short history of both next-gen formats, Fox today announced that it will postpone a large chunk of its previously confirmed Blu-ray March and April title line-up.
The following titles (which include some MGM titles, also distributed by Fox) have all been pulled from the studio's Blu-ray release lineup. (The date to the left is the originally-announced street date):
March 13: Commando, Dances with Wolves, Dodgeball, Ice Age, The Thomas Crown Affair (1999).
April 3: Dude, Where's My Car?, The Fly (1986), Hannibal, The Silence of the Lambs, Tristan & Isolde.
April 17: Turistas
The rest of the Fox's winter Blu-ray release line-up remains unchanged.
Given the number of titles affected, we contacted Fox Home Entertainment directly for comment on the extensive title shake-up. The studio assured that none of these titles have been cancelled, only been pushed back to yet-to-be-determined dates due to a general "release schedule shuffling," said Fox's senior VP of marketing communications Steve Feldstein.
We'll certainly keep you posted as new street dates for these titles come in, and if there are any changes to the previously announced specs and/or supplemental features.
In the meantime, we've moved all of the above titles to the "Release Dates Postponed" section of our Blu-ray Release Schedule.
