Mulholland Dr. HD DVD confirmed for March 2007
Studio Canal have announced their second wave of HD DVD releases. A slew of titles, including one of my favourite films ever, David Lynch’s Mulholland Dr., have been confirmed for release in France with a street date of March 5th 2007. Other titles include Lynch’s The Elephant Man, Akira Kurosawa’s Ran, and Terminator 2: Judgement Day, a title that, in the US, is a Blu-ray exclusive. The RRP for each title should be around €25.
A word of warning, though: this will be a very limited release, with the first run being comprised of only 4,000 copies for the four countries included in the release plans (i.e. only 1,000 copies for France). If you want any of these titles, therefore, get your pre-orders in as soon as they’re listed!

Is there any reason for it being such a limited release? I would think that it would sellout online within days, if not 24 hours

I’ve no idea why there’s doing such a limited release. Clearly they don’t think there’s much of a market for HD DVDs in Europe. They may very well be right, but they’re probably not banking on hundreds of hungry American HD DVD fans snapping up all the copies of Terminator 2 (and any other titles that aren’t available on HD DVD in the US).
