Default What happened to Shawshank Redemption?

I apologize in advance for not being an hhhhdvd veteran, but in my last iNet order, I had two HD DVDs with inserts showing Shawshank Redemption with "ON HD DVD summer 2006" on the bottom. I know Warner canceled some titles closer to the end of the format war, but what caused Warner Bros to ditch this?

What really hurts me is that The Perfect Storm, to the left of Shawshank on the insert, came out !-(.

While it was listed in the insert, Shawshank was one of Warner's long delayed titles. Iw was not release until December 2008 on Blu-ray and by then HD DVD was dead an buried.

Just one of those things that happens.

SNF is another one to Hit Blu-Ray and believe me... the HD version sucks. Looks like they ported the DVD version over, the sound mix is horrible. The directors commentary is from the 2002 DVD release, and the new features SUCK.

One of the titles I had wanted in HD-DVD, more than Blu, but either way the final product is garbage. My Upscaled SD-DVD looked just as good.
