Default 'Hairspray' - Pre-release buzz

New Line has confirmed to High-Def Digest that the distributor is planning to launch its Blu-ray and HD DVD support with the release of 'Hairspray.' Based on the current theatrical-to-video window of roughly three-to-four months, a fourth quarter 2007 time frame seems likely.

Not exactly the first movie I was expecting from them... but at least we know they support both formats and are finally in the High-Def 'war'.

I'm sure this is only the tip of the iceberg. I'd imagine we'll get a few catalog titles as well... probably 'Se7en' and something like that. Though I'm sure we won't see some of their big ones ('Lord of the Rings,' etc.) for a while yet.

But I'm just speculating...

I would love to see Se7en in hi def. Classic ending. Probably one of the best endings to a movie I have ever seen. Totally took me off guard. They can keep Hairspray. Travolta in drag in 1080p?? PAAAAAASSSSSS!!!!

So New Line is entering the high-def arena just like Dreamworks did with Dreamgirls - with a musical, interesting . Let's just hope they don't do the same thing with the audio on Hairspray as Dreamworks did with Dreamgirls and include only lossy Dolby Digital.

This might actually turn out to be a great release. It will probably have vibrant colors and a great audio soundtrack! Hopefully, it will sell well so that will bring out New Line cataloge titles!!

It's about time New Line started releasing movies, but this isn't the one I've been waiting for. Question though, is this the new one coming out or the old one from 1988?

I think you find it's the new one.

And I also agree that we won't see LOR for a while.

Glad to see New Line releases, and at least they're neutral. Let the consumer decide...

Hairspray was decent enough, but I want catalog titles. And not just Rush Hour or Austin Powers.

This is the "House that Freddy Built", you know...

Howzabout that and some live action TMNT?
