Now just an anouncement for Batman 89 and I'm all set.

This movie is one of his best next to Pee Wee's big adventure.

barring any other announcements (like a stateside release before 9/16 for Sweeney Todd), this'll be my 7th Tim Burton title on hi-def. fantastic news, especially when you toss in Nightmare Before Christmas before the year's out.

right now, my personal race for most titles in hd stands at:

Soderbergh: 7 (with none forthcoming)
Burton: 6 (with Beetlejuice, Nightmare Before Christmas, and maybe the first two Batman movies forthcoming)
Scorsese: 5 (with Gangs of New York forthcoming)
Stone: 4 (with Natural Born Killers, The Doors, Nixon and maybe Platoon forthcoming)

You can uncross your fingers, because all Warner titles are region-free.
