    The title wave begins, New Line goes Blu

    Well here comes the title wave of blu support. New Line is going with its parent company to blu.

    With Warner Bros. announcing that they are exclusively supporting Blu-ray, one of their sister studios, New Line Cinema, was apparently not on the cards. However, it has been revealed that they will also follow.

    When you think of New Line Cinema, certain films should come to mind; Lord of the Rings, Dumb and Dumber, Nightmare on Elm Street, Se7en, Austin Powers, and most recently The Golden Compass. Even though they are a part of Time Warner, this is not an insignificant studio.

    Although Warner Bros. decided to move to Blu-ray, it was not known whether New Line Cinema would follow. Warner’s President, Kevin Tsujihara, stated that their announcement did not stretch to New Line, HBO, or the BBC (which Warner distributes in American). Tsujihara did, however, say that

    They’ll be making whatever decision they’re going to make, I assume they’ll let people know very quickly.

    Today Variety confirm that New Line Cinema are doing just that, and in reality this was the only rational move.

    Warner sister company New Line confirmed it will shift allegiance to Blu-ray only as well.

    HBO, another Time Warner company, has not revealed it’s direction yet we presume that they may well follow.

    Things aren’t looking great for Toshiba, Universal and Paramount. Expect this High Definition Format war to transpire towards a conclusion very soon.
