Spielberg Feeling Blu Too
Posted by XanTium | 21-8-2007 23:29 EST

From blu-ray.com:

A noticeable stipulation in the Paramount deal yesterday was that films directed by Steven Spielberg would not be HD DVD exclusive, and could be distributed on either or both formats. At the time, it was not apparent if this meant the famous director was a fan of Blu-ray, but clarification received by High Def Digest suggests that the only Spielberg film coming out in high definition will be the recently announced 'Encounters of the Third Kind' and only on Blu-ray.

After the Paramount announcement, High Def Digest contacted long-time Spielberg spokesman Marvin Levy regarding the announcement. He said the following:
"It was important to Steven that if any of his films were to be released [first] on high-definition, that it would be a classic. Steven is big supporter of Blu-ray, and chose 'Close Encounters' to be the first of his films on either format."

"Then, two Spielberg properties were announced for high definition release: 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind' via Sony and 'Poltergeist' via Warner. CE3K was completely approved by Spielberg and includes a brand new introduction by the director. 'Poltergeist' was canceled."

And the next, and the next....
