Default Weinstein to Release First Title on Blu-ray: Neutrality?

Weinstein is going to release Hard-boiled with the new game Stranglehold Collector's edition. It will be there first movie title on Blu-ray. Is this a sign of things to come ...neutrality?

Quote:
Weinstein and Genius were eager to take the film and deliver it to a new audience on a new format. As a result, gamers who haven't seen the original film -- which also is being released July 24 on DVD in a 15th anniversary two-disc edition via their Dragon Dynasty DVD label -- will be able to see the movie and then control the protagonist in a new interactive adventure.

Well Hardboiled came out before Weinstein was even a film company....Even if they have the rights to it.

Interesting...and if anyone hasn't seen it...where the hell have you been? Hardboiled and The Killer one of the two best Chow Yun Fat movies.

This touches on something I was thinking about anyway. I think the BDA should try to get Weinstein to become neutral if only for appearance. Though Weinstein is a very small percentage of the market, their catalog will only get better over time and the news would be a big boost for blu-ray and put pressure on Universal.
