Default Cinderella Man a Universal movie on Blu-ray in Japan

Cinderella Man, a Universal movie is available on Blu-ray in Japan. Does anyone know what is happening here? Is Universal testing the Japanese market?

How many other Universal releases on HD DVD in the US are released by another distributor outside the US?

Keep us updated though. I'd get Enter the Dragon for sure, but I'm not keen on Cinderella Man.

Japan is region A the same as the US so you may as well buy Enter the Dragon from the Amazon Japan website. It is available now.

U-571 and Spy Game are two Universal movies coming to Blu-ray in the UK. Looks like Universal is not so HD DVD exclusive, as some of their movies are distributed by other companies outside the US.

Warner also announced they are releasing all their initial HD DVD titles on Blu-ray in 2007.
