Bad news from blu-ray forum.
Three weeks ago (November 15), Sony Pictures Home Entertainment had announced Heavy Metal for Blu-ray release on January 25, 2011. Now the studio has unceremoniously pulled this cult animated movie from its schedule. No reason is given for this cancellation, and no new release date is available. |
A couple months ago, another Sony catalog title, Big Daddy, was also announced and later pulled from the schedule, only to resurface later as a Best Buy exclusive (see October 11). At the moment there is no information as to whether that will happen or not with Heavy Metal as well.
Hope this is temporary. I've never seen it but have always wanted to. Was finally going to get round to it when it got announced for BD.
