Gangs of New York coming to HD DVD after all!

HD DVD/Blu-ray

Remember how back in September I posted that UK distributor Entertainment In Video was planning on releasing Martin Scorsese’s Gangs of New York on HD DVD? If so, you’ll probably also remember that in October I posted that bad news that EIV was backing Blu-ray exclusively. In any event, their slate of titles ended up being put back to March 2007 (presumably to coincide with the upcoming European launch of the Playstation 3), and I can now report that, thankfully, we don’t have to wait for EIV to put out their version, only to discover that it’s region-coded, because the good folks at Manga Films in Spain are putting out an HD DVD version in March too. No specifications are currently available, and the release date isn’t any more specific than “March”, but I’ll update you with details as they emerge. With this, plus other interesting titles such as Asterix and the Vikings, Perfume: The Story of a Murderer and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, not to mention Blu-ray “exclusives” like Underworld: Evolution and Saw, Spain is turning out to be an unexpectedly good source of titles for HD DVD owners.
