Default Expect LOTR on Blu fairly soon...

This thread isn't to say when it's going to be released, just to expect it sooner, rather than later.

Reason being, New Line has been "bleeding" money for quite some time now. They have had a slew of horrendously performing releases in the past few years... think "The Number 23" among quite a few others. So to be fair, New Line hasn't exactly been rolling in the dough even though they've put out movies like Hairspray.

Sitting upon a cash cow for them is no way to do business. I had a friend working at new line a little while ago and they said that the company was completely in flux right now with so many things bombing.

Anyway, the point of this post was for the people who think it's going to take LOTR forever to get put out, I'm 99% certain it will not be out any later than the Fall of '08.

*of course, with the movies New Line has put out, it's fairly obvious someone there doesn't know how to run a business... so my sound logic could be lost in the ether of hollywood idiocy.

I would be willing to bet a fair amount of money that you are off....and by a large amount of time.

i would think right now blu ray and hd dvd is such a small market that it really isnt a primary concern. I would assume new line is more concerned with whats going on at the box office and dvd before blu ray. They would make more money later anyway when there are more players in homes. Dont see the real rush for them to get it done other than us wanting it

And there was a rush (no pun intended) for Rush Hour 3? LotR would be an instant hit for them. I'd like it to happen soon, but I don't see it. They would have hyped it by now.

I'd be willing to bet your horribly wrong as well. Your reasoning is terrible.

I think they will hold off until The Hobbit hits theaters which is when? 2009? movie studios like to do that to get people interested in buying

I think you're all forgetting the real holdup is Peter Jackson. He won't stamp his name on it unless it's a certain way, that's the last sticking point I've heard. He wanted this stuff and the studio wanted something else or disagreed. Kind of a stalemate for the moment.
