I think a picture with Jack Black and Mos Def running a video store and parodying Ghostbusters, Robocop & Rush Hour 2 has a better shot at BD than The Martian Child simply due to this appealing to the what the studios perceive as the typical 'Blu-ray crowd' (read: gamers who own a PS3) more than a John Cusack drama about family skills does. For that reason, I like it's chances. That said, a lot of similarly quirky indies like The Darjeeling Limited got left in the cold too. But being that this particular title is New Line (and Warner is releasing a bunch of BD titles and took over New Line's decision-making), I think we will see it on BD. We should know for sure about it's BD status as soon as the DVD is announced.

Edit: I just read at DVD Times that the DVD was announced today for June 17th. No mention of a BD. Looks like we BD owners are getting shit on again. I wanted this one -- enjoyed it in the theater. Guess I will Netflix it for my girlfriend's benefit until those jerks see fit to release it in HD.

The DVD HAS been announced, it's coming out on June 17. The Blu-ray will most likely be announced very soon as well for the U.S. It comes out June 30th on Blu-ray in the U.K.

Was really disappointed with this film, I love Jack Black but this was a big let down, had so much potential

Funniest scene was when they broke in the rival video store for the projector, that was classic!

Hopefully the new Ben Stiller film he's in will be better

Bring on Saving Silverman to Blu, that was awesome!

Seems like the kind of movie I'll like, if it's priced right, I'll blind buy it.

I don't think be kind rewind would gain much from a blu release. I am however still pissed off that TenaciousD and the Pick of Destiny wasn't released on Blu or HDDVD. That movie was so funny and the songs were great.
