    Well of course no matter what studio it comes down to the approval of George Lucas or Steven Spielberg.

    I've been gagging for Indy on BD for years. Everytime I go on Amazon I keep seeing KOTCS getting cheaper and cheaper, and I have to desperately hold out for the complete boxset.

    Scarface, Jurassic Park Trilogy Blu-ray in 2011
    During an extended interview with French site Ecranlarge.com, Eric Legay, marketing director for Universal France, revealed some of the catalog movies that the studio intends to release on Blu-ray in 2011, which prominently include the Jurassic Park trilogy and Brian DePalma's Scarface, along with some westerns and more Hitchcock.

    The studio will also release some westerns on Blu-ray, including Winchester 73, Shenandoah and High Plains Drifter (apparently one of two movies starring Clint Eastwood that the studio plans to release this year).

    Universal will also continue releasing Alfred Hitchcock movies on Blu-ray, but Legay noted that the flow of titles might be limited by the need to remaster them with the same level of quality as Psycho.

    Daylight Blu-ray Announced

    Universal Studios Home Entertainment has announced Daylight for Blu-ray release on April 26. This 1996 action movie starring Sylvester Stallone and directed by Rob Cohen had been released in 2007 on the defunct HD DVD format. The BD will be presented in a single-sided BD50 disc, and will include a lossless audio track.

    Special features include:

    * Feature commentary with director Rob Cohen
    * The Making of Daylight
    * The Daylight Archives
    * Theatrical trailers
    * Music video: Donna Summer and Bruce Roberts, "Whenever There is Love"
    * Pocket Blu

    I kind of doubt they'll do that, but IMO the first movie alone is worth shelling it out for the set.

    Sunshine Blu-ray Exchange Program
    Blu-ray enthusiasts have been reporting playback issues with the Blu-ray release of Sunshine. Now, 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment has come through and made available replacement Blu-ray discs for any consumer that has had an issue playing their copy of Sunshine. Consumers should contact Fox customer service at 888-223-4369, where their name and address will be taken down for a replacement disc.

    The issue was that the BD's picture-in-picture track turned itself on and couldn't be switched off, which made impossible to watch the movie itself. Several players were affected, including the PS3 (after a recent firmware update).

    Extended Lord of the Rings Blu-ray Expected This Year

    As principal photography is about to finally begin on The Hobbit, The Digital Bits is reporting that New Line, under Warner Home Video, will release the extended edition of The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy "sometime this year," in order to "keep the franchise fresh in the minds of fans."

    The Hobbit will open in theaters in two parts, in 2012 and 2013. Afterwards, the studio is expected to release an ultimate Blu-ray box set including all five movies, with 3D versions probably also available.

    All of the above must be considered unofficial until there is a formal announcement from the studio.

    Warner Home Video has announced a comedy double feature for Blu-ray release on April 5: Arthur / Arthur 2: On the Rocks. This single-disc release will include both comedies starring the late Dudley Moore as the eponymous irresponsible playboy. No special features have been listed at the moment.
