Default Releases of major US studio's movies in other countries

I thought it would be interesting to see what the major studios (Warner, Universal, Paramount and Dreamworks) released overseas. I just included the info for four countries (UK, Germany, France and Japan), since that's all the release info I have. According to my totals, here are the number of releases in each country, from the 337 total released in the US:

UK: 158
Germany (DE): 132
France (FR): 106
Japan (JP): 92

As you can see, almost half of the major studios movies were released in the UK (47%), about 40% in Germany, 31% in France and 27% in Japan.

It's interesting to see just how much from the US was released in those countries, compared to how few titles from their own countries were released on HD DVD.

Please let me know of any errors or omissions. One oddity I noticed: was The Departed released in the UK? It doesn't show up on Amazon.

The table below is as follows:

# = number of major overseas countries that a movie was released in (there are 4 total). The list is sorted first by number of countries then by studio then by title.
. A "1" indicates that it was released in that country, and a "-" means it wasn't. A name of another distributor (such as Geneon) means that it was instead released by another distributer.

Awesome/crazy work Mr. HD DVD :smile:

Bruce, as far as I know, the Departed was never released as a UK HD DVD.

Thanks for all the work, you and logodaddy are keeping the HD DVD archive alive on this forum!

Thanks Blerim. I've always been curious as to which US releases were released elsewhere. Surprised "The Departed" wasn't released in the UK considering how popular it was here.
