Well, Spinal Tap is MGM so I never really expected it to hit anyway..... I still don't even with the new date.

I always wait until I have an MGM title in hand shipped from Amazon or off of a Frys shelf before I believe.

Yep. All will now no longer be Day and Date with the DVDs.

But could it be...because...of...a...BD50 shortage?!?!?!

Criterion's website lists new dates for them.

Amazon and other stores will update shortly as the news just hit.

So wern't these movies (except for The Last Emperor) supposed to be coming out late November? So we are talking about a 2-3 week delay?

I figured we'd see a lot of delays come this Holiday season.
I'm betting that Dark Knight is getting first dibs on replication
simply because it's the "must-have" title on Blu-Ray this Christmas,
and will in turn help sell the format to those on the fence.
