Default 300 on HD DVD 10/08/2007 !!

It looks like 300 is being released in Germany on HD DVD on the 10th August 2007.

I wonder how long it will be before it gets announced in the US.

Warner has also previously announced it for release in France in September.

Considering Warner owns distribution rights to it both in the US and Europe, it will end up getting released in the US either at the same time or earlier.

I know what you are trying to say, but I believe that was released early as a special case in order to cater specifically to the UK market where Harry Potter is especially popular. In the US , I imagine that they are waiting to closer the latest Harry Potter movie release for cross-marketing purposes. The 300 does not have the same type of factors associated with it.

And now with "The Matrix" and "Blood Diamond" showing the Warner is not afraid to have unequal releases between Blu-ray and HD DVD, there seems to be little reason for them to delay the US version of 300 unduly.

Imports are rather expensive and since 300 was a HUGE recent box office hit, I'm sure it will be released soon. Actually, this thing came out in March....is a July HD release out of the question?
