German specialized site Bluray-Disc.de recently gained access to a list of
upcoming Blu-ray titles from retail chain Saturn, which included Steven
Spielberg's 'Saving Private Ryan' for March 25, 2010. As usual, this
information must be considered unofficial until there is a formal
announcement from the studio.
Steven Spielberg's titles are among the most highly requested on Blu-ray.
They have been the object of multiple unconfirmed rumors and pre-
announcements, going as far as having preorder pages and cover images
and disc specifications for 'Artificial Intelligence' (see blu-ray.com, May 9), which
Words cannot express how disappointed I would be if this never materializes. Very exciting news
however seeing as how its my FAVORITE movie! Now let's do this transfer right! Absolutely can't
wait to here more news!
Actually Saving Private Ryan in Blu-Ray maybe scary. Just the the invasion of Normandy would be unreal. I remember seeing this with my cousin while visiting him in Dallas and all I could say back then was wow.
@demiscy: It's only a rumor for now, but sometimes rumors DO come true. Just wait...
@mishal: Though I wouldn't get my hopes TOO far up yet, IIRC the problem with LOTR is that it WAS announced (not 100%, but even WBShop had it on preorder), then pulled back. So don't salivate too badly till it's in your hands...
That date actually makes sence bc The Pacific (the "sequel" to Band of Brothers) on HBO is due to start in March of 2010. And since BoB is already out on BR what better than the movie that started it all?
Well, here he goes again! Posting rumors is like printing gossip! It's only hearsay, and worthless until future confirmation. When an official announcement from DreamWorks/Paramount is publicized, then I'll make preparations on purchasing. I don't count my chickens, before they hatch! Personally, I don't see the point of continually posting rumors of unofficial, upcoming Blu-ray releases, and giving their forum members false hope, especially, if these alleged upcoming Blu-ray titles will never materialized anytime soon. Journalism as such is considered fiction.
Have this on dvd and vhs, and can honestly say that I get more disappointed by the ending every time. Other than the first 30 minutes a forgettable movie. Bring on the original 6 hour cut of The Thin Red Line instead or Schindler's List. Those are some fantastic films.
This most likely a rumor however, no one should be worried about a Spielberg release to BD being insufficient. Yes, Gladiator was shockingly disappointing, but Spielberg has total control and he will not release a sub par transfer. So, no worries... I remember his films being released onto DVD took a while but, well worth the wait.
