‘Valkyrie’ Debut Delayed

Tom Cruise Valkyrie, a movie already plagued with production issues, has just given us another reason to be wary.  It’s now been linked to two of the most cringe-inducing words in the film industry:  delayed release.  The biopic about a German officer who plotted to take down Adolf Hitler will now premiere October 3, 2008.  Valkyrie was originally slated to open June 27, unfortunately (The Usual Suspects) has yet to shoot an integral war scene.

This Week on HD DVD and Blu-ray: October 2, 2007

Evil Dead 2 posterThis Tuesday brings the release of some great titles, new and old.  As expected, the studios are rolling out some Halloween-inspired classics, filled with zombies, vampires and serial killers; though sadly, only Blu-ray supporters seem to be taking advantage of the upcoming holiday.

HD DVD studios chose instead to use this week to re-release a bunch of titles that were previously only available in those obnoxious HD DVD/DVD Combo discs.  You know, the $40 releases that were appealing to neither the HD owners nor the standard-definition owners?  Those of you who rightly refused to make such a silly purchase can now have some great HD titles for a lower price, thanks to Warner Home Video coming to its senses.  Any of the following films with an asterisk (*) in the title are the re-released versions.

Check out this Tuesday’s HD DVD and Blu-ray releases after the jump.
