Default Anyone know why THE UNTOUCHABLES is O.O.P?

I want to buy THE UNTOUCHABLES on BluRay. I buy most of my discs on eBay..

However, upon looking for THE UNTOUCHABLES, I discovered that, even though there are 3 sellers selling it on BD, it is an O.O.P. BD item?

Its also on HD DVD.

Which format should I get it on? Is it O.O.P. on BluRay for any reason I should know about Is the transfer bad? Did they pull it off production because of a problem?

Paramount went hd dvd exclusive last year and let the discs run out. They should be replenish them this summer.

its out of print because paramount went hd dvd exclusive. Paramount has since re-announced support, but have not made any announcements about re-printing old titles or releasing new titles yet.

dont fall for anyone trying to charge a outrageous price for the paramont blurays saying they are out out of print

the untouchables along with most other paramount titles are back on store shelves again, i have picked up quite a few titles in the last few weeks in store, for 19.99 to 22.99

also the untouchables is availble at hd movie source for 22.45 plus shipping
and they even have a discount code for highdefdigestmembers

As others have said, I saw this Blu-ray at local Best Buys during the holidays and after. I almost picked it up with the $20 off 3 coupon. This one, I don't think, was rare.

none of the paramount titles are rare on bluray anymore not even shooter, which people were charging a arm and leg for a little while back shooter now can be had for 29.99 at the local bestbuy, virgin mega store has it for 29.99 circuit city has it for 29.99 frys has it for 24.99
the only paramount title that is truly rare is that elusive blades of glory that only saw a few slip through when the hd dvd exclusive announcement occured last year.
