Default Blade canadian BD june 2nd?

Amazon.ca has a preorder for a canadian release for Blade http://www.amazon.ca/Blade-Blu-ray/d...0686084&sr=8-1.
Anyone have any more info on it? I love this movie to death but canadian releases have been hit or miss (mostly miss)

This was a New Line movie, making it Warner now. They typically don't have different releases in the U.S. and Canada. It would be odd if it were a Canada-only release.

Alliance releases New Line titles in Canada. I read somewhere that last year when New Line was folded into Warner that they stopped receiving New Line film masters and that is why some of their recent releases like Se7en are apparently 1080i and wrong aspect ratio because they were meant for HDTV broadcast. Reportedly Alliance will no longer be distributing for New Line as of sometime later this year which is probably why they are pumping out some of these titles that New Line has yet to release in the US.

Maybe the prospect will get Warner to release proper Blu-Rays of some of these New Line films.

If Alliance releases this in June, expect WB to release it in the fall or winter. Maybe close to Halloween.


I'm not a fan of Alliance, they're butchers.

I wish Warner would hurry up with the Blade trilogy!

They can take their time and get the Blade trilogy right. We got some monster catalog titles coming out later this year. If Blade doesn't happen in 09 I wont be disappointed.

Just because Warner owns New Line, doesn't mean Warner owns Canadian distribution rights for all of New Line's old movies. Not even close.
