O Hannibal, where art thou?

HD DVD/Blu-ray/DVD

I suppose I shouldn’t be too surprised. The HD DVD release of Hannibal, scheduled to come out in France on August 1st, has not materialised. None of the online French DVD stores I know of are currently shipping it, and I’ve yet to find a single person who has a copy of it. Furthermore, lists it as “Actuellement indisponible. Nous ne savons pas quand cet article sera de nouveau approvisionné ni s’il le sera.” Basically, it’s not available and we don’t know whether it ever will be.

First the Blu-ray release yanked from the schedule and now this. I’m beginning to wonder if this title is cursed. It’s too bad, as it was one of my most anticipated high definition releases. Oh, well, the months ahead are likely to be pretty expensive for me anyway when it comes to HD releases, so perhaps it’s for the best from my point of view that at least one of them has, so far, failed to materialise.

Update, August 13th, 2007 07:17 PM: According to this list, it’s been put back to October 5th.
