Children of Men WILL BE THE NEXT Shawshank Redemption!

Universal made a mistake releasing this during the Holidays/Christmas...this should've been released back in September.

I wouldn't count on it because "Children of Men" is not as high a profile a movie as "Casino Royale" but who knows! Even at #25 that is an excellent rating and it is even more impressive to note that there are 4 HD DVD movies in the top 50 and Marix is already at #46 months before its release, at that rate it could easily get to the #1 place or close on or near its release date.

There is no doubt in my mind that The Matrix will hit #1. Well I take that back as there are two seperate box sets so one could hinder the other in the rankings. I wonder what the Matrix ranking would be if only one box set was released.

Matrix WILL be in the top 10 but im not sure if its gonna be number 1! if it was just the first Matrix at a good price then yeah but i dont think it will reach #1, but it WILL break the top 1! ye, Children of Men was kina a failure as in box office and now its at 25!!!and the BD fanboys keep bringing up box office status while children of men made only around 30 million and is not at 25 while Casino Royale the "biggest" highdef release was at 9/8 for a few days

It'll DEFINITELY be interesting to see what happens with Matrix on HD DVD and POTC (1 & 2) on Blu-ray being released on the same day. Matrix is essentially a must-buy for HD DVD adopters but one could argue that POTC is just as much of a must-buy for Blu-ray adopters.

All I can say is that those two Matrix collections will bring a lot of revenue to WB.
