This thread really belongs in the wishlist section. Most of the posts now are people wishing for titles. It's painfully obvious this Warner/Paramount deal fizzled out, which I'm not surprised by one bit. You've got a studio climate where catalog titles are seen as a waste of time - why one studio would take on another's library when they barely release their own titles I'll never understand. OTOH, Warner is acting as a "third party" for Paramount's films. By that logic, why doesn't Paramount license to outfits like Shout Factory or Kino? Surely these independent labels will get more mileage out of some titles. People have been requesting THE KEEP since the beginning, for example. Warner isn't interested but Shout would probably make a killing if they market it as a limited collector's edition and throw in some goodies and a nice slipcover.

Paramount didn't want to market their lower-end catalog films on home video anymore, after firing everybody in their home video department. They had already built up a decent back catalog of Blu-rays, so they partnered with WB to distribute them. WB did get them more exposure in places like Walmart, mostly as bargain bin fodder.

Hey, this distribution deal is still alive! Coming soon, the major motion picture classic

And that probably never will make it to BD.

Crazier still how obscure films from one studio will be on BD, but huge hits from another (cough, PANIC ROOM, cough) are not.
