Tried to organize by format, sorry if any mistakes. Also 1-18-08 should be good for whichever format gets it\.

Nicely done.

Yeah, 1-18-08 looks awesome. I read that they will have a new trailer in front of Beowulf and the title will be Cloverfield (it's working title) after all... Unfortunately, it won't be released on Blu-Ray next year (it's a Paramount title).

13 Blu-ray exclusive, 11 HD DVD exclusive, 5 will be exclusive to one format depending on how WB goes, and some are unknown. 1 HD DVD currently exclusive (as not announced otherwise) could end up on Blu-ray as well.

Well if WB goes Blu that would be huge with Dark Knight.
The other big movies for Blu will be Prince Caspian, Wall-E, and Hancock (A Will Smith super-hero movie, it will be huge)

Also, won't Indy 4 come out on Blu because of Spielberg directing it?

I think 'Wolverine', the Marvel Comic character, is suppose to come out in 08 for blu. That may be the only super hero movie for blu next year. If that matters to anybody. HD DVD looks to have the better movie exclusives next year. No Spidey and Pirates to help blu this time.
