Default Fox Overseas Rumor Squashed

Fox Overseas Rumor SquashedThere have been reports of Fox releasing on Blu-ray internationally while still on hold in the U.S.
A Fox executive told us and some late-night commenters at High-Def Digest that it isn't true. Fox has made no Blu-ray announcements in Europe, Asia or the U.S. since its last Blu-ray title, "Night at the Museum," on April 24.

(Update: 11:30 a.m. Thursday, July 11):
Re: a comment about a sighting of a Blu-ray "Sunshine 2057" release date of Sept. 7 in Japan on a web site, Fox reiterates that this is one of the titles that was initially slated for release and has been put on temporary hold. Other territories will be allowed to catch up to Fox's U.S. Blu-ray releases, the last of which was "Night at the Museum" in April. But no new titles beyond that are currently scheduled for any territory.

These reports come amidst ongoing questions about what is going on with Fox since they pulled back from their Blu-ray release slate almost three months ago and have been silent ever since.
There is still no word from them on that score -- we were all hoping the recent announcement of the finalization of the BD+ extra anti-piracy protection for Blu-ray Discs would trigger the studio to re-open their release schedule.
Well, not yet -- I'm told it's not that simple. Haven't seen them this tight-lipped about anything before.
Nonetheless, two things are for sure: Fox is still solidly in the Blu-ray game and we will have the announcement and perspective here as soon as Fox resolves their mysterious internal issues and are ready to become a player again.

Perhaps it could be that Fox is working on a huge release?

At this point "Flicka" would be a huge release.

I understand they're keeping the big guns in the holster until HD reaches market saturation, but jeez, the only things they had scheduled were From Hell and Mr. and Mrs. Smith. I don't think anybody's lining up around the block for those.

At this point Fox should be considered non-participants, like New Line.
