Only days before their scheduled Blu-ray release, MGM has confirmed a delay for both 'Battle of Britain' and 'A Bridge Too Far.'

The two classic war flicks had been due to hit Blu-ray next Tuesday November 6, but today the studio confirmed earlier retailer reports that both titles had been yanked, citing "marketing decisions."

Though MGM has not yet announced new dates for either title, the studio did tell us that 'Battle of Britain' and 'Bridge Too Far' are now expected to arrive "sometime around Father's Day 2008," likely as a part of a holiday-themed promotion.

As always, we'll let you know as soon as new dates are announced for both titles.

In the meantime, we've moved both 'Battle of Britain' and 'Bridge Too Far' to the "Release Dates Pending" section of our Blu-ray Release Schedule. Stay tuned.
