Default 'Invasion' - pre-release buzz

Warner has announced the much-troubled 'Invasion' remake is hitting HD DVD Combo format on January 8:

http://hddvd.highdefdigest.com/invasion.html

The Nicole Kidman-Daniel Craig thriller gets 1080p/VC-1 video and Dolby TrueHD audio, plus extras including a new documentary and three making-of featurettes.

There are no exclusives, and content is the same as the Blu-ray, which is also streeting the same day.

List price is $39.98 (versus $34.98 for the Blu-ray).

Has anyone on here seen the movie? The trailers looked good but it got trounced by critics.

I thought it was pretty good except the ending which could have been a lot better. If there was a new cut at the end it would be really god imo.

Pretty lame.

I thought this would spur them to release the original Invasion Of The Body Snatchers ala The Omega Man/I Am Legend.

I liked the '78 remake 100 times better, This new version was weak and by the end, just plain boring.

Not a terrible movie, just kind of boring. But why the F*#E do we have to pay more for the same movie when HD-DVD manufacturing costs are cheaper than BD?!?

Warner's "perceived added value" for combo edition. Actual prices have little to do with replication costs (besides which, Sony gave price guarantees to some studios to match HD DVD replication costs, from what I have heard), but rather perceived value to customer. Sadly, this philosophy makes a number of new releases more expensive on HD DVD than Blu-ray.

I also though that Warner announced they would drop combos and also sell both HD formats for the same price. This is what I found:

Quote:
Beginning in January 2008, the HD-DVD Combo will be discontinued by Warner Home Video for the Theatrical New Release Business Unit. Warner will be offering the HD version only.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix will be the last title we are offering the HD-DVD Combo for. The Invasion will be the first HD only title on the TNR release slate.
