Default "Clubland", "L.A. Confidential", "Afro Samurai" HD DVDs Coming Soon Overseas (?)

Looks like somebody has gotten the word on these. Main honcho in another reputable forum says the following are on the way as follows:

"Afro Samurai"--2/20/08 (Japan)
"L.A Confidential"--3/17/08 (UK)
"Clubland"--1/28/08 (UK)

Since "Clubland" and "L.A..." were mentioned a few days ago, no reason to think this info isn't pretty solid, but no official release info yet obviously.

Is L.A. Confidential coming from Warner? I imagine the U.S. release would be the same day or near the same week.

"Afro Samurai" seems to be distributed by Pony Canyon in Japan and they do release stuff on HD DVD (for example Virtual Trip discs) so I guess that notice about upcoming Japanese HD DVD release may be true, but I couldn't find any info about it in Japan internet with a few quick searches yet.

Watch Impress has it listed now too, I didn't see it there yesterday yet:

Seems that HD DVD and BD are theatrical cut while DVD edition includes also a longer Director's Cut.

Here's a trailer:
