    Based on the trailers I've seen Atonement is certaqinly a 'must have' for me - I don't think Universal have announced it yet for a US HD DVD release, I suspect that it will be part of the HD DVD announcements coming 'mid January', but hopefully they will give it the full works (including a TrueHD soundtrack please!).

    DVD Times are confirming the March 10 debut for the UK HD DVD release of Atonement. Specs include:
    - 1080P 1.85:1 Widescreen
    - Dolby Digital Plus soundtracks in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish and Japanese
    - Feature Commentary with Director Joe Wright
    - Deleted scenes
    - 'The Making of Atonement'
    - 'Novel to Screen'

    ...disappointing to see there is no TrueHD track - I wonder if the US version will sport one (just like the US release of Bourne Ultimatium did). I wonder how far adrift the US release will be though?

    Disappointing really - it now looks like we have now have to endure a hiatus in Universal high def releases whilst we await them to setup their Blu-ray production - personally I would have much preferred they kept HD DVD releases going until then.

    On the positive side though at least Atonement is being released - I would have been really miffed if I had been made to wait months before it arrived.
