Default 'Master & Commander' -- pre-release buzz

UPDATE:

We just got a new date (again) for 'Master & Commander,' which has been re-set for May 13.

Fox says this is it -- no more delays!

Specs and extras remain the same, as does the $39.95 MSRP.

Okay, so 'Master & Commander' is already delayed from its original October 2 release date:

However, Fox has told us today that they will be announcing a new date shortly. Apparently, there are some last-minute production snafus that need to be worked out.

Stay tuned, and we'll post the new date soon.

Ok, that's good news. Hopefully the date is sooner rather than later.

Hopefully it'll still hit fairly soon. I'm way looking forward to Master and Commander. I still wish they'd come out with more movies based on the series.

So much far all the blu fanboys saying since this was still on amazon it wasn't getting delayed. We had this heads up like 2 weeks ago. When will blind fanboys ever learn.

I hear you, but unfortunately it didn't do very well at the box office. It's a shame really, because the novels and the movie are incredible works. (Masterpeices IMO)

Master and Commander is one of the movies that would compel me to purchase a PS3 this holiday season, if the rumored price cuts turn out to be true.

I thought this was a great movie. It's a shame it has been delayed.

I think there is some merit to the supposition that Fox felt pressure to come up with something, anything to counter the Paramount news. It could be that it was entirely impractical for them to release everything they announced for whatever reason.

This is a BD release I was really looking forward to. I'd rather they delay it for however long it takes to make it a truly quality release than put it out half-assed. Lord knows the HD DVD fans would grab onto it like a terrier if there were any authoring problems with the released version. Fox can't win.
