Paramount Comes Back to Blu-ray

Posted February 21, 2008 06:55 AM by Josh Dreuth

ParamountIn a statement sent exclusively to The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount Home Entertainment has revealed that they will return to releasing their films on Blu-ray. Initially supporting both high definition formats, Paramount became HD DVD exclusive in a controversial move by the studio in Fall of last year. With Universal Studios announcing their support of Blu-ray earlier this week, Paramount completes the last piece of the puzzle as the sixth and final major studio to support the Blu-ray format.

The statement read, "We are pleased that the industry is moving to a single high-definition format, as we believe it is in the best interest of the consumer. As we look to (begin) releasing our titles on Blu-ray, we will monitor consumer adoption and determine our release plans accordingly."

While no specific titles or dates have been announced at this time, it is expected that Paramount will first release their stock of Blu-ray titles produced but never released due to their exclusivity deal with HD DVD. This could include titles that were recalled soon after the deal was announced, such as 'Blades of Glory' or other Paramount titles which has already been prepared for Blu-ray release.

Great news. I expect Transformers will be out quite quickly with Paramount as Id say they were probably already working on the 1.1 stuff as they would have known this was coming.

Fair play to them, they got $150m to release about 10 titles which is far more than they would have made selling them on blu.

The article at Engadget (http://www.engadgethd.com/2008/02/21/paramount-officially-blu-ray-again/) says that although Paramount (and Dreamworks !!) are Blu again they will "monitor
consumer adoption and determine our release plans accordingly", so it might take some time before all HD-DUD titles are painted Blu.

But hey, best week ever for Blu-Ray in my opinion: First Toshiba, then finally Universal and now Paramount and Dreamworks to make it complete.

It's now time to get back to work and start making the True fan's of HD some quality product. As you can see there is a high demand for Transformers and well we've waited long enough.

Paramount should just say f!ck that HD-DUD exclusive deal and start making blu-ray movies. Its not like there is a HD-DUD market anymore. At least for people who are smart enough to know better. Paramount just needs to grow some b@lls and produce blu-rays on all their popular movies, then all the not so popular after that.

It seems (from what I have read) that Paramount is still going to release some movies on HD-DVD. I don't understand what for.

OK, there are many people that bought Toshiba players, but they won't buy any new HD-DVD players in the future. Those players they own now will eventually broke and they will end up with movie collection they cannot watch... why, I ask WHY they are trying to suck more money out of these people.

I applaud their fairly quick response, but unlike Universal who has been an HDDVD supporter all along, I feel that we got stabbed in the back on 08/20/2007 when they defected purely based on bags of cash and incentives, even when Blu-ray was winning by a good 2:1 ratio. If there is anyone to be sued by the early HDDVD adopters it's Paramount who have caused the war to pronlong for another 6 months. I will Forgive but I will NEVER EVER forget.

This really isn't any surprise at all. I mean, really, what were they going to do? What would have

movies they locked away in a vault somewhere, if they didn't take them out back and smash them all
to hell when they took that $150m from the HD-DVD people.

I can't wait for the titles to just start pouring. I wonder how long before DVDs start feeling the pinch

I must admit while I am glad they are back I still believe they owe us an apology for all the crap they put not just blu fans through but all consumers for jumping ship for a little money and draging this out 4 months longer then it needed to be. Though I imagine they feel like smacked asses now having to come back with their tail between their legs, because this confirms it was all about money.

I could care less about Transformers (out side Megan Fox) I watched it again the other day on DVD and still did not like it very much (family wanted to rent it). I am just glad Universal is on board.... Hellboy II!!

It's great news, and I am very excited about it, but I still have a sour taste of how they exited blu-ray last time, stopping everything even pre-orders of titles that were about a week away. At least Warner is being kind to hd-dvd customers by going until May even when the format dropped, Para can't say they ever did the same.

Paramount must be laughing all the way to the bank... they got their payoff and only lost a few months in Blu' sales. Unofficially, they may have well suspected Blu' would win but took the payoff anyway while knowing they'd come out ahead.

You know we're going to get H-Dud ports for a while. I don't see them spending the time and money to re-encode all those titles. Especially since they didn't actually want to come back to Blu they had no choice. I think they'll take the cheap way out until the sting wears off and the bucks start rolling in.

Paramount: I still believe you gave a bad name to raw capitalism with your money-grubbing deal with Toshiba and MS, but at least you're back with Blu. We expect you to get back into Blu production as soon as possible, with lots of great titles, both new and catalog. With a half-smile, I say, "Welcome back."
