Default Rush Hour 3: No HD DVD!??!

I just saw this on the Blu-Ray side of the site and I'm wondering what the heck New Line is doing. I thought they were neutral....so why is RH3 blu-ray only?

It's a timed exclusive on the BD side. It will be coming out early next year, as will Shoot'em Up.

Because HD DVDs lack region coding, New Line is fearful of putting the discs out before their theatrical runs finish.

Rush Hour 1 was cool, 2 was okay, and 3 sucked ass. All, IMO.

Right now retailers are being told to expect the HD-DVD versions of Hairspray, Shoot 'em Up, Rush Hour 3 & Mr. Woodcock in March or April. No word yet on if the price will be cheaper on HD-DVD than Blu-Ray due to the wait.

But how many people are truely neutral. I guess you could say I'm neutral in that I will buy on both formats, but I lean heavily toward HD DVD and will choose the HD DVD over the BD 99% of the time.

I will be waiting for the HD DVD version of both of these titles. Now if for some reason there is a BD sale where I can get them for $13.50 each, then I will get them on BD.
